In the big-screen version of Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's popular young adult novel, two high-school seniors fall in love over the course of one eventful evening. A straight bass player in a queercore band, Nick (Juno's Michael Cera) has just been dumped by the two-timing Tris (Alexis Dziena). He's committed to making more self-pitying mix CDs until his bandmates convince him to help track down a top-secret rock concert. Meanwhile, Norah (Charlie Bartlett's Kat Dennings) and her hard-partying pal, Caroline (Ari Graynor), set off on the same journey. Nora had never met Nick, but she already had a crush on him (While attending the same school as Tris, she's been enjoying the mixes Nick keeps making--and Tris keeps throwing away). When the inebriated Caroline goes missing, they spend the rest of the night racing around the Lower East Side in his Yugo looking for the friend, the show, and trying to avoid Tris (Norah's ex-boyfriend, Tal (Tropic Thunder's Jay Baruchel), presents further complications). Peter Sollett's follow-up to Raising Victor Vargas aims to please several audiences at once. It starts out like a less dirty-minded Superbad, morphs into a post-millennial After Hours, and ends as a Big Apple take on Before Sunset. It's sweet and funny, but could use more of its own identity, though Cera and Dennings make for an appealing couple and the supporting performers, especially Graynor and Kevin Corrigan in a wordless cameo, enhance the proceedings considerably. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I was all prepared to trivialize this movie for what I expected to be another hipster teen comedy taking advantage of the success of Juno and Superbad, especially given that Michael Cera is the co-star of all three films. However, this 2008 movie is really a quirky, sharply played variation on Martin Scorsese's 1985 After Hours, this time focusing on two misfit teens, kindred spirits when it comes to their taste in music, who find themselves traipsing through New York's indie rock scene for one hilariously sleepless night. Their chemistry is predestined by their names, a tribute to the scintillating married couple played by William Powell and Myrna Loy in The Thin Man series of golden-era Hollywood classics. Their nocturnal misadventures are driven by Nora's search for her hard-partying best friend Caroline, who escaped in a fit of paranoia out of a van, while gay-band bassist Nick is nursing a broken heart over Tris, the shallow, man-baiting ex-girlfriend who continues to play him.

If the movie simply limited itself to the odyssey, it would have been satisfying enough for its intended audience, but what director Peter Sollett and screenwriter Lorene Scarfaria have done to transcend the genre is make the lead characters' mutual passion for music the focal emotional point of their growing attraction for one another. Nick keeps sending Tris idiosyncratic mix CDs (like "Road to Closure, Vol.

5.0 out of 5 stars nick&norah`s infinite playlist May 19, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I am over 50 and even though this movie is probably aimed at teenagers
i found it really enjoyable,this was due to really clever writing and
a excellent cast that seemed to work well together.
I had allready borrowed this movie from my brother and decided after
watching it to buy a copy for myself from the U.S. (i`m in australia)
that`s how much i enjoyed this movie.
The picture and audio is very good as you would expect with blu-ray
and this movie had some fantastic music.

When you think about it, nothing much really happens in this movie. NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST takes place in the course of one day and night, with the crux of the story occuring in the wee hours of the morning. So there's a bit of an energetic After Hours vibe in this movie, but catered towards the sensibilities of hip teenagers who prowl the New York streets way past their bedtime. But then it also has echoes of Adventures in Babysitting, with Ari Graynor's awfully wasted Caroline subbing in for Penelope Ann Miller's nervous Brenda. Going into this one, and me being a huge fan of one of the most fabulous romantic couples in cinema, Nick and Nora Charles (of the Thin Man series), I was already favorably predisposed towards this quirky teenage romantic comedy.

Norah has never met Nick. But she knows about this guy who makes the best break-up mix CDs, most of which were pieced together for his ex-girlfriend Tris (his latest opus being titled "Road to Closure Vol. 12"). But Tris just pokes fun at the poor sap and then promptly discards these mixes, with Norah then un-discarding them and putting them in her I-pod. Because Norah absolutely digs these mixes. So, no, Norah has never met Nick, but she's probably halfway in love with the guy anyway.

Now Nick may not look like he's all that (in fact, he looks kinda dorky), yet he plays in a rock band, plays the guitar although he doesn't quite know how to work the drum machine. And dude drives a broken-down yellow Yugo which people often mistake for a taxi. But being in a band has to count for a couple of cool points, right?

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of the roles Michael Cera usually plays. Scott Pilgrim is one of my favorite movies and Arrested Development of course. However, this movie was terrible. It tries hard to be cool and hip like Scott Pilgrim but fails miserably with cliched dialogue and characters. The premise sounds promising but overall the movie was sophomoric and unsophisticated.

Me and my wife really did not care for this movie. We ended up fast forwarding most of it. I think the target audience is mid-teenagers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute February 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Some funny parts, but nowhere near as funny as Cera's other movies. Was hoping for more focus on the music, but the songs picked were lackluster. Cute with corny lines.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth your time May 4, 2012
By AMT
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie swayed from the story-line in the book, not by much, but enough to notice. They left out many major scenes that reveal character growth. I'm not really fond of any of the actors in this movie, I am tired of seeing Michael Cera only play one character, who does he think he is, Kristen Stewart? and Kat Dennings voice just does not fit with Nora, her voice is deep and masculine and lacks the emotional trauma that her character is supposed to be feeling. The actress who plays Tris, Alexis Dziena, looks like she is still 14 (and still in that LifeTime movie) which gives Nick appearance of being a Pedo and the actor who played Tal just didn't seem to meet the "stereotypical Jew" image portrayed in the book. The poor casting didn't help my opinion of this movie. I guess the music in the movie is good (although I thought it was a bunch of noise), mostly obscure bands that no one outside New York City has heard of. I really only bought it for a friend who is obsessed with the book, but to be honest, the book is lame. I find it hard to believe that a story this simple actually took two people to write, its not a unique story but I guess if you just need to waste away for a couple hours it is perfect for you. If you like watching the same "awkward-romance on a roller coaster" movie that has to take place in New York City, then this is definitely the movie for you.
