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

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 »

Quotes

Thom: Well we came to Gray's Papaya to get a bite to eat and she must have woke up because the chick has flown the coop.
Nick: Thom, that's not acceptable.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is one of the most sweet teenage romantic comedies of the year
11 November 2008 | by tavmSee 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...
