Meet 16-year-old Nick Twisp (Michael Cera) ...a youth in open revolt and, well, one pretty revolting youth!

As California's most restless native, Nickie T. embodies the angst--and obstinance--of today's teenager. His father hates him, his mother hates being single, his sister hates herself and Nick hates being a virgin. Dysfunctional at best, Nick's home life is a source of constant corruption for our young hero. Couple bad role models with raging hormones...and you've got a boy determined to put his parents--and his penis--in the right place.

Surrounded by a cast of debutantes, ditzy blondes, immigrants and idiots, our rebel with a cause takes the future into his own hands. But since they're only those of an inexperienced youth, things don't always go according to plan.

In a single year, Nick is transformed from a semi-normal teenager with acne and an erection to one of California's most wanted arsonists, a pretty convincing drag queen, an international traveler and a multi-millionaire.
