....I wanna see something awkward and heartwarming, like "Youth In Revolt." I saw it this past week and I've been craving a similar experience ever since. Something deep, like "The Wackness," and with the underlying love story, too.

Maybe "500 Days of Summer"??? Is it any good?

(500) Days Of Summer is excellent. I wouldn't call it heartwarming, and I never saw Youth in Revolt, but yeah, watch it. Its really good.

A movie similar to a Michael Cera movie?

Another Michael Cera movie. Juno is the best because he isn't the main character >_>

Juno. Nora's Infinite Playlist.

Michael Cera = Awkward

Cute girls battling teenage issues =sometimes= heartwarming.

I saw a preview for a new movie he is starring in today at the theaters. It seems pretty clever; probably the only movie I'll enjoy enjoy him in. That is until the Arrested Development movie comes out. Hopefully.

if you want a deep movie, watch Into The Wild, wicked soundtrack too. I don't really watch love stories because they are way too cliche.


I've already seen Into the Wild, and it's amazing.


And I agree on the "love stories being cliche" bit but they give me a little escape from the ridiculously crude and disgusting and downright shitty way that the world actually operates, so I kinda like them.

Then you should watch Juno if you haven't already. It's half reality and half cliche.

Watch it. You will not be disappointed.

Don't watch "500 Days of Summer". It was so over hyped. Anyways make sure to watch "Me and You and Everyone We Know".
#24
I 500 Days Of Summer. It's the shit.

Hot Rod might do you, I don't know though.

For my Michael Cera contribution, I recommend Paper Heart.

A Clockwork Orange is also a very awkward/heartwarming movie.

Actually, Harold and Maude is probably the most awkwardly heartwarming movie i've ever seen in my life.

If anyone knows of some good horror that involves hot school girls, you know, like 5ive Girls, then that would be pretty sweet

Strange Occult themed plot + spanking teenage school girls on the bottom usually makes for a good watch

I don't know about the "awkward" bit, but Stardust is positively heart-warming every time I see it. Great way to lift your spirits.

Are you looking for romance type stuff mostly? I just watched TiMER recently and have to say I enjoyed it quite a bit despite it being a rom-com (usually not a fan), though one plot point bugged me.

If you just want heart-warming but don't necessarily need the romance, watch any Miyazaki or Pixar movie you have not yet seen Just watched My Neighbor Totoro again recently (had to after seeing him make a cameo in Toy Story 3) and find I am still amazed at how such a simple, innocent story with almost no action or momentum can be so incredibly lovable and charming and easy to watch.

And you have probably seen it already, but Adventureland is exactly what you are looking for imo. Most Judd Apatow movies (and especially his TV shows, which are even better) also qualify.

For something more "crazy and insane and confusing" but also lovable, kind of, definitely check out Jeux d'enfants. It has Marion Cotillard, and she is fucking beautiful. Is stylistically similar to Amélie, albeit far darker and less heart-warming. On that note, if you or anyone else in here hasn't seen Amélie yet, get off your ass and do so immediately.

Hmmm.... yeah that's all I've got for the moment. Could probably recommend a few more if you provided additional criteria, but check out the above for now.

I don't know about heartwarming, but that movie's led to an ackward moment or two.

Its not really awkward, and it is quite far removed from the movies everyone has suggested so far, but i have recently watched True Romance, and it features one of the few movie couples that i can stand, because they have a certain charisma and magnetism that makes you want to root for them. Also, i can see similarities between the film and Max Payne (not the movie adaptation, the game), so if you want a love story with action and violence thrown in, which manages to be somewhat heartwarming at the same time, i say go for that.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

EDIT: I'm 18, male, told I'm quite mature for my age, but that, that's a cool film. Loads of good actors too and the lead actress, well, I would.
