Aside from the occasional “Yuck, that’s gross!” moments, Nick and Norah, their Infinite Playlist and the overall story is actually not that bad.
“Nick frequents New York’s indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and playing the bass with his queercore band, The Jerk Offs. Norah 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 a first date that could change both their lives.” – rottentomatoes
Michael Cera’s performance was typical Michael Cera. Whether it’s Year One, Superbad or Scott Pilgrim, he always is and will be like Michael Cera, good or bad. That’s why sometimes people get tired of watching him, but I don’t. He’s kind of a kid you always want to root for, but I don’t see anything else other than that. Kat Dennings is a bombshell. I didn’t expect her to be good. She makes me want to check out the upcoming Thor movie even more.
The film is far from perfect. Yes, it’s quite boring at times, but if you have nothing else to do and you want to pass some time, I guess you can play Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist for at least an hour and a half.
