The first trailer for Youth in Revolt, the Michael Cera-led comedy about a young man who invents an alternate persona in order to be ‘bad enough’ for the girl of his dreams, fell short by a measure or two. In this writer’s opinion, it gave away far too much of the film’s plot without being entertaining. This redband trailer, which debuted over at Funny or Die, is much better. It still gives away too much of the film, but at least it gets some laughs with various absurdly crass moments.

Directed by Miguel Artera and based on a novel from C.D. Payne, Youth also stars Portia Doubleday, Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, Justin Long, Rooney Mara, Zach Galifianakis and Fred Willard. Having seen it at the Austin Film Festival, I can tell you that it’s definitely worth seeing when it hits theaters on January 8, 2010.
