This is one of those rare times where the movie was far superior to the book.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is a surprisingly sublime movie surrounding two teenagers - Nick and Norah (Michael Cera and Kat Jennings, respectively), both down on their luck due to broken hearts - as they search for Norah's drunk friend who has ran off and is alone in New York City. Meanwhile, they and Nick's band search for their favourite band's secret performance. Sollett devised a fantastic ensemble; even Cera, who is admittedly not my favourite actor, gives a wonderful performance as the awkward and longing Nick. Standouts include Ari Graynor, who is absolutely hilarious as Caroline, the aforementioned drunk friend, and Jonathan B. Wright (of Spring Awakening fame) as the sullen Lethario. The aesthetically pleasing and realistic film is a heartwarming but edgy watch, perfect for Friday nights with friends.

Not bad. A few funny moments but a oncer. Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls) plays Norah and Michael Cera as Nick.

One film that seemed to drag and drag and drag. One meager laugh all the way through. One disappointing film I wish I'd never seen. I wouldn't recommend.

With a name like "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" it must be good...right? Wrong. It's terrible and boring. Terribly boring.

Wasn't expecting too much from this one, but really ... you'd think with Kat Dennings and Michael Cera there'd be some kind of hipster magic. Not at all. I like both actors, and a film with both of them sounded like a good idea. The title offers the promise of some kind of epic romance, but it fell flat.
