Storyline

At 16, Nick Twisp is wry about his teen funk: he lives in Oakland with his sex-addled mother; his father's child support is her meal ticket. While camping in Ukiah, Nick meets Sheeni: for him, it's love at first sight. Nick has to figure out how to get his father a job in Ukiah, then how to get sent to live with his father, then how to get close to Sheeni, whose religious parents may want her sent away from temptation to a boarding school. There's also Sheeni's all-American boyfriend to contend with. Overwhelmed by the challenges, Nick's about to give up when he conjures an alter ego who whispers revolt into his ear. Nick is not altogether hapless, but can this end well? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Simply funny and smart
19 August 2010 | by (Macedonia) – See all my reviews

It's a good thing that comedies are slowly coming out of the stereotypes like cliché characters, fake emotions and boring all happy too long meaningless endings. Don't be fooled that this is movie for teens only; there is lot more here going on.

Great transformation by Michael Cera, well developed main and supporting characters and very funny appearances by excellent and proved actors. The story is simple but goes through many changes in it making it unique in its genre, successfully escaping the traps set by the movies that have already told this story. This movie like the previous ones has hilarious situations and that is the only resemblance, but apart from them it has developed romance, real emotions, smart and funny dialogs and is more mature.
