Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Michael Cera and Kat Dennings star as two lonesome teens who make a love connection as they prowl the streets of New York looking for their favorite band's secret show, as well as for their drunk friend Caroline. Norah is sick of being the doormat for her catty friend Tris, so rather than look like she's arrived at yet another concert without her unreliable ex-boyfriend-with-benefits Tal, she grabs a stranger and pretends he's her date. Unfortunately, that stranger is Nick -- whom Tris just dumped. Oddly enough, though, Nick and Norah seem to have a real connection. But is Nick… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist takes everything you loved in three decades of teenage romance and twists it into something unrecognisably desperate and exploitative."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"Like Before Sunrise or the lovely karaoke-bar sequence at the center of Lost in Translation, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist captures the excitement of exploring a city with someone you barely know and really, really like."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"An American teen movie that manages to be cool and smart and also sweet."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"I don't know about you all but I think this is a welcome change from pensises in pies and boob gags - I hope the trend continues."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
"The characters are all stuck on tracks, which might work on other occassions, but not when your underscoring music is all about refusing to follow conventional tracks."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"I would love the film more if the film didn't love itself so much."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"There's not much reality or intellect to be found."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"Think of it as Superbad without the booze or Juno without the snarky dialogue."
‑ Ali Gray,
"As a glimpse inside the wide-eyed world of the teenager, it is the best John Hughes film that John Hughes never made."
‑ Simon Foster,
"It's an easy and lightweight date movie for teens who will enjoy also discovering some New York bands."
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"What makes the film work in spite of itself is [director] Sollett's sympathy for his characters and the teamwork between Cera and Dennings, whose winsome sultriness seems entirely unaffected."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"It plays like a movie inspired by good movies, not by the emotion that inspires good movies. Still, the appeal of Cera and Dennings keep the movie within the realm of a mildly good time."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Put this on your playlist, if only for an hour or two."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"It's all about the execution, and among plenty of dead on arrival teen films, Nick and Norah is legitimately funny, sweet and charming."
‑ Eric Goldman, IGN Movies
"It's a pleasant enough interlude and the young band-crazy target market may get involved, but its appeal is limited and there is nothing especially fresh or novel about the content."
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
