Welcome everyone to another episode of Don’t Make Me Watch That! – A podcast that celebrates movies and tears them down all in one sitting. Hosted by Andrew Young and Leslie Hudson, each episode presents the critique of a film from the long or recent past that one of us hates and the other one loves. Andrew and Leslie will do what they do best: fight and debate and make fun of one another. It’s all in good fun and for the love of FILM!
This episode, we take another trip to 2009 for Youth In Revolt. Directed by Miguel Arteta and Starring Michael Cera, Youth in Revolt is the story of Nick Twisp, a young man who falls in love with a girl named Sheeni Saunders, hoping that she will be the one to take his virginity. When he finds out that she’s only interested in “bad boys”, he creates the alter ego of Francois Dillinger and sets out to become the man of her dreams. If you heard our episode on Scott Pilgrim, you may remember that Leslie cannot stand Michael Cera. She believes that she could break him over her knee. This has inspired Andrew to offer this little known film for critique.
Listen as our two combatants argue the merits of Youth in Revolt and cut each other up in the process. Enjoy.
