Romantic comedy

Michael Cera: sex-obsessed 16-year-old Nick Twisp and his alter-ego Fran├žois
Jean Smart: Nick's divorced mother Estelle
Zach Galifianakis: her current crude and rude live-in boyfriend Jerry
Portia Doubleday: 16-year-old Sheeni Saunders
Mary Kay Place: her mother
M. Emmet Walsh: her father
Steve Buscemi: Nick’s dad George
Adhir Kalyan: Nick’s newfound friend Vijay
Ray Liotta: Oakland PD Officer Lance Wescott

You might want to take note of two clues before deciding to see this film:
1. The title which promises rebellious behaviour
2. The R classification since there are sexual situations, nudity and vulgar language.

And if that is not enough, while the screen remains black we hear the unmistakeable sound of someone whose only sexual outlet is of the solitary sort. Clearly this would be very much to the liking of the target audience: young adults, especially horny male teenagers who feel comfortable with graphic, vulgar behaviour.

Not fitting that description I walked out.

for sexual situations, substance abuse, vulgar language and nudity.
