Storyline

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 Anonymous

Goofs

When Nick and Norah are in Electric Lady Studios and Norah receives a text from Caroline that reads "Foumd Flufdy" the date for the text says "Apr 20 2008." April 20, 2008 was a Sunday, and in the beginning of the film while Caroline and Norah are in school, Caroline says to Norah that it is Friday. Since they were out in NYC throughout Friday night into Saturday morning, it should have been April 19, 2008, but it could not have been the 20th. See more »

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is one of the most sweet teenage romantic comedies of the year
11 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

When I was in Maryland to see my sister's firstborn get baptized, we both decided to see this movie when I was there. This was a nicely cutting edge teenage romantic comedy about two strangers played by Michael Cera and Kat Dennings who find out about their similarities only after their friends accidentally put them together. Cera still is pining for an ex he puts a mixed CD for while Dennings is friends with that ex. Michael's character is also a member of a band whose other members are gay while Kat's character has a girlfriend who likes to drink. And all this happens while Cera and Dennings and their friends ride around New York City all night looking for their favorite indie band. Plenty of sweet and funny (and a little gross) moments abound and while my sister and I might have a little problem with a sex scene with the leads, the romance was good enough to overcome that. So on that note, I recommend Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. P.S. There are cameos of a couple of current SNLers I pleasantly noticed right away...
