The Unusual Youth (Chinese: 非常青春期) is a 2005 Hong Kong teen comedy-drama film centering on five disillusioned Hong Kong teenagers living on the island of Cheung Chau as they try to deal with life in spite of family backgrounds. The film stars Race Wong of 2R fame, Yan Ng, Marco Lok and Raymond Wong. Several veteran Milkyway Image actors, which include Law Wing-Cheong, Cheung Siu-Fai, Lam Suet and Simon Yam (in a brief, unbilled appearance) make cameo appearances.

The Unusual Youth marks the writing and directing debut of Dennis Law, a former real-estate developer turned former chairman for Milkyway Image. It is also the first film to be produced by Law's own production company Point of View Movie Production Co. Ltd.
