Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Teenager’s who are interested in New York’s music scene will be flocking to see the comedy, musical Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. During his bands gigs bass guitarists and sensitive high school student Nick played by Michael Cera has been dumped by his ex-girlfriend played by Alexis Dviena when Norah played by Kat Dennings asks him to be his girl friend for 5 minutes. Of course Nick accepts and as the two go through the night looking for her drunken friend played by Ari Graynor they are also searching for the underground band “Where’s Fluffy” somewhere playing in New York. This film has talented young actors, likable characters and a funny and intelligent script. It may not be as fresh as some musicals but it has the innocents of teenagers falling in love. One of the funniest and most interesting characters is a stick of gum or maybe I should say the stick of gum has a character of its own. (Since I’m blind I’m always worried about what I put in my mouth and after a couple scenes with that gum I’m going to be extra careful.) I’m giving this tender teenager flick a B rating.
This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
