This movie gets me excited every time I see it. Makes me wanna drive the 30min to NYC with the radio playing. Nothing is better than catching your favorite band in a small venue. This movie captures what it needed to. Michael Cera is great as always.

For me, a very nostalgic film, driven by memories of late nights in the city and a connecting love of music. For music-lovers, this will be a special film, but, for others, the actors are all talented and charming enough to make this enjoyable.

I love this movie! It really captures the adorable-ness and awkwardness of young love and virginity. It makes me want to be a teenager, drunk and loose in New York City. This movie is real, Cera and Dennings are beyond lovable, and it's extraordinarily romantic. And funny! All around great. Watch it with your new boyfriend or at a slumber party, or enjoy a very awkward scene with your parents!

Cera and Dennings are quite watchable together

There are some shows where you know what's going to happen based on the title. And then there are shows that have titles that tease about what the movie is really about. Like "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist". I can tell that it's about a guy, Nick, and a girl, Norah, and it has something to do with songs ("playlist"). But what's up with "infinite"?

"Nick and Norah" tells the story of how Nick and Norah fall in love in a New York City night while rescuing Norah's drunk friend and finding an elusive rock band. The story (boy-girl romance) is simple, the situation (one mad-cap night) is familiar, the setting (New York City) is overused. But Michael "Nick" Cera and Kat "Norah" Dennings manage to pull it off.

Love the Gays!

Even though Michael Cera plays the same type of character (”Superbad,” “Juno”) in pretty much every movie, I love him for it because he’s the master of awkward teen comedy. He has great comedic timing and he always gets his audience to care for his character in under twenty minutes. This film is about the adventures of Cera and Kat Dennings in one night–from finding the drunken Ari Graynor, dealing with the ex-girlfriend Alexis Dziena, having good fun with the gays (Aaron Yoo, Rafi Gavron, Jonathan B. Wright), to attending a “Where’s Fluffy” concert. If one looks at the overall picture, it may not amount to much because it’s directed more toward high school and college students, but it’s undeniably cute and has its genuinely funny moments (that Ellen Degeneres bit …

Almost, but not quite

A cute movie, but lacking that little extra "something" to make it great. Perhaps I'm not the target audience?

I just think back to the movies of MY teenage years. I mean, has anything ever come close to a "Sixteen Candles" or "The Breakfast Club"? In my memory, those were amazing films! And they made lasting impressions on me and my peers. Do today's youngsters have the same reaction to this one?

If so, that's great. Because there have been far worse teenage comedies. But I don't relate to the... "mentality" of these characters. First of all, I couldn't get past the fact that high school seniors are staying out all night in New York City. Are they even of legal age to drink? (A major plot point revolves around a girl who always gets drunk.) Where are their parents? Is …
