George, a lonely and fatalistic teen who has made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
It's been three weeks, two days, and 23 hours since Tris broke up with Nick. And now here she is at his gig, with a new guy. How could she have moved on so fast? This begins the night of Nick, Norah and Manhattan. The night of stripping nuns, hotel ice rooms, Russian food, psychotic ex-boyfriends and lovingly trashy ex-girlfriends. It's the night of Julio and Salvatore. The night of holding hands and writing songs and singing in the rain. It's a night they'll never forget. Written by
The film originally opened at The Jerkoffs show where Norah first meets Nick. All prior scenes (including Nick leaving a voicemail on Tris' phone, the scenes with Norah, Caroline, and Tris at the Catholic school, etc.) were re-shoots filmed six months after principal production was wrapped.

In the Port Authority scene, there are 3 errors. First the van pulls up on 8th ave in the taxi lane and parks. All the occupants get out and go into the Port Authority building. The van would have been taken almost immediately. Second error, The booth Caroline goes up to is not used for NJ transit which she would have needed to get back to Englewood. It seemed to have been used strictly for its proximity to the bathroom entrance. Third, in the "sandwich" scene Caroline is sitting with the sandwich guy in the main ticketing area on a subway bench. These benches are not located in the Port Authority, (except underneath in the subway) and there are no benches at all in the Port Authority ticketing area due to the lines that form there. It would be in the way. See more »

In this age of super-broad comedies and sexed-up teen films, there comes Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. It's all-too-easy to groan at the thought of sitting down to a high school film these days, yet 'Nick & Norah' attempts to make you rethink that. It tries to achieve that so rare of an achievement; it tries to make a genuine and honest teen comedy.
Michael Cera, that king of adorable dorkiness, stars as Nick, the sole straight member of a queer-rock band. Kat Dennings plays Norah, a rocking rich chick who is just as unattracted to teenage pettiness as the rest of us are. These two meet through a random encounter and together set out to try and find the secret show of the aptly titled rock band Where's Fluffy? They cruise the town like grown adults, yet underneath both are incredibly naive. They argue, fight, flirt, and, yes, fall in love; what makes the film great is how mature and honest a relationship they create. We know from the beginning that it is the destiny of Nick and Norah to get together, yet when they do it is nothing short of soulful. With a wonderfully witty script along for the ride, it's apparent that this is much more than your average teenage comedy. 7/10 stars!
