It's not bad

on 3/1/2013

I genuinely like this movie even though I have some odd passion against Michael Cera (Yet love the things he's in, go figure?) either way, it's not bad in my opinion. I can understand where in folks could dislike it it, but in the end it is just what I wanted to see at the time that I wanted to see such a thing.

Product Overview

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is a comedy about two people thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick (Michael Cera) frequents New York's indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and a vague ability to play the bass. Norah (Kat Dennings) is questioning pretty much all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band's secret show and ends up becoming the first date in a romance that could change both their lives.

Editors Note
Note With its sweet teen coupling and ardent devotion to music, NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST feels like the cinematic equivalent of a mixtape made by John Hughes and Cameron Crowe. But the film is actually directed by Peter Sollett, who earned praise for his debut feature, RAISING VICTOR VARGAS. This studio-produced comedy is a bit shinier and more polished, but it still has hints of the authenticity that made his first film so well loved. NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST centers on two New Jersey teens, newly single Nick (Michael Cera, JUNO) and his fellow music lover Norah (Kat Dennings, CHARLIE BARTLETT), who meet at Nick's band's show in New York City. Their very long night in the city is driven by two searches: one for a secret concert by their favorite band, Where's Fluffy; and a second for Norah's irresponsible and drunk friend Caroline (Ari Graynor, in what should be a star-making performance). The pair bounce through the streets of New York in Nick's Yugo and his bandmate's van, bonding over their shared love of music, while their exes threaten their new romance. ^Based on a young adult novel by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST makes an able leap to the screen. Dennings and Cera are likeably awkward in their tentative courtship, but much of the praise should go to music supervisor Linda Cohen and composer Mark Mothersbaugh. Cohen picks of-the-moment bands such as Vampire Weekend, Takka Takka, We Are Scientists, and Band of Horses that are sure to make the soundtrack as big a hit as the film, while Mothersbaugh perfectly complements Nick and Norah's sweet romance with his fun yet unobtrusive score.
USA Today "Dennings is the revelation here....She is smart, likable and funny and may be ready to assume the mantle from JUNO's Ellen Page as the coolest young female star." 10/03/2008
Los Angeles Times "[F]leshed out with atmosphere, a nice blend of broad goofiness and sophistication, and two appealing leads who bring it to life." 10/03/2008
New York Times "[T]he director, Peter Sollett, spins a shy, sweet romance around a carefully chosen soundtrack....Sollett shows an admirably low-key directorial temperament...." 10/03/2008
Entertainment Weekly "The marvelous, magical boy-meets-girl-in-the-city-that-never-sleeps romantic comedy NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST is a revolutionary movie disguised as a familiar story." -- Grade: A- 10/10/2008 p.46-47
Premiere "[I]t's a fantasy of one night in New York City and all its insanity, grossness, romance, and glamour." 10/03/2008
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a cutesy, SUPERBAD-eyed view of being a late teen....The leads are flawless. Cera may always play the same rabbit in the headlights, but it's role uniquely his own." 02/01/2009

Review It's strange how the concept of two people wandering around a city at night falling in love has come of age in 2008. First, there was In Search of a Midnight Kiss. Now there's Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. Of course, Richard Linklater can claim to have pioneered the idea more than a decade ago with Before Sunrise, but where the Ethan Hawke/Julie Delpy romantic comedy targeted adults, Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist is geared more toward teens, although that won't prevent older viewers with an affinity for romance from appreciating the vibes it gives off...The dialogue is witty enough to separate Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist from the rom-com continuum of dumb screenplays, but not so witty that it will receive a Diablo Cody-level backlash. Director Peter Sollett, adapting from Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's novel, adeptly fashions a cinematic seduction that will appeal to both mainstream movie-goers and those who demand a little more. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is fresh without being alien and fun without being moronic. There are perhaps a few too many secondary characters and subplots and I could have done without the story of the traveling chewing gum. (Cautionary note: next time you swap gum with anyone, be sure you know where it has been.) Overall, however, it's hard to deny that the film is able to touch both the heart and the funny bone. Combine that with two winning lead performances and a top-notch soundtrack, and it's hard not to be bullish about Nick and Norah's city-bound road trip in a Yugo.

Review There is one merciful element to "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist." The playlist is not infinite. The movie trudges around the Lower East Side of Manhattan in pursuit of a group of 17-somethings who are desperately seeking a mysterious band named Where's Fluffy. Clues are posted on the walls of toilet stalls, which are an unreliable source of information...Nick and Norah are played by Michael Cera, best remembered as the boyfriend in "Juno," and Kat Dennings, best known for "The 40- Year-Old Virgin," where she played anything but. They work well together, are appealing and desperately require material as good as those films. Here they're not stupid; it's just that they're made to act stupidly. There's not much to recommend an all-night search through the dives of Manhattan for a lost friend who makes Britney Spears seem like a stay-at-home...The two meet at a club, when Norah needs Nick to pose as her boyfriend to make her ex-boyfriend jealous. He is named Tal (Jay Baruchel). My first Chicago girlfriend was named Tal, which is Hebrew for "the morning dew." I don't think he knows that...I was relieved to observe that Nick doesn't drink as he pilots his battered Yugo around Manhattan. Ever notice how Yugos look like stretch Gremlins? People spot its bright yellow paint job and hail him, thinking it's a cab. This is impossible, since he doesn't have an illuminated sign for an Atlantic City casino on his roof..."Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist" lacks some of the idiocy of your average teenage rom-com. But it doesn't bring much to the party. It sort of ambles along, with two nice people at the center of a human scavenger hunt. It's not much of a film, but it sort gets you halfway there, like a Yugo.
