REVIEW: YOUTH IN REVOLT
OVERVIEW: Join the laugh revolution when the critically hailed new comedy YOUTH IN REVOLT rises up on Blu-ray and DVD this June 22, 2010, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Michael Cera, star of the smash hit films Juno and Superbad, headlines this uproarious tale of a young man who gets in touch with his inner bad boy in order to win the girl of his dreams. Based on the beloved cult novel by C.D. Payne and directed by acclaimed comic filmmaker Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl, Chuck and Buck), YOUTH IN REVOLT is a uniquely clever comedy about teenage lust and rebellion that breaks all the rules. Featuring one of the year’s most hilarious supporting casts, including Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover, Up in the Air), Ray Liotta (Observe and Report, Wild Hogs), Justin Long (He’s Just Not That Into You, Zach and Miri Make a Porno) and Steve Buscemi (Fargo, Pulp Fiction), YOUTH IN REVOLT is guaranteed to incite laugh riots across the nation when it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD!
SYNOPSIS: YOUTH IN REVOLT is the story of Nick Twisp – a unique, but affable teen with a taste for the finer things in life like Sinatra and Fellini – who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful, free-spirited Sheeni Saunders while on a family vacation. But family, geography and jealous ex-lovers conspire to keep these two apart. With Sheeni’s encouragement, Nick abandons his dull, predictable life and develops a rebellious alter ego: Francois. With his ascot, his moustache and his cigarette, Francois will stop at nothing to be with Sheeni, and leads Nick Twisp on a path of destruction with unpredictable and uproarious consequences.
DVD: The film is presented in widescreen with a
1.85:1 aspect ration preserving its theatrical
format. Looks clean, images without any types of color
saturation. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has done pretty
good job with this transfer. Not only the picture looks
good in this version of the film, also the sound it is
good. A Dolby Digital English providing a nice complement to the picture. It also includes
English subtitles. Unfortunately the DVD doesn't include
French and Spanish subtitles, which I found to be
considering the big Hispanic population in the USA.
In terms of special features
