Movie Info

Michael Cera and Kat Dennings star as two lonesome teens who make a love connection as they prowl the streets of New York looking for their favorite band's secret show, as well as for their drunk friend Caroline. Norah is sick of being the doormat for her catty friend Tris, so rather than look like she's arrived at yet another concert without her unreliable ex-boyfriend-with-benefits Tal, she grabs a stranger and pretends he's her date. Unfortunately, that stranger is Nick -- whom Tris just dumped. Oddly enough, though, Nick and Norah seem to have a real connection. But is Nick still too hung up on the princess? The only way to find out is to spend all night combing Manhattan in a yellow Yugo.

Critic Reviews for Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

All Critics (179) | Top Critics (43)

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist takes everything you loved in three decades of teenage romance and twists it into something unrecognisably desperate and exploitative.

Top Critic

I would love the film more if the film didn't love itself so much.

Invested in ephemera, not people -- never more so then when the couple gets busy in a recording studio and the camera chooses to pivot and pan sensuously across the synthesizer.

I.E. Weekly
Top Critic

What makes the film work in spite of itself is [director] Sollett's sympathy for his characters and the teamwork between Cera and Dennings, whose winsome sultriness seems entirely unaffected.

Top Critic

Like Before Sunrise or the lovely karaoke-bar sequence at the center of Lost in Translation, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist captures the excitement of exploring a city with someone you barely know and really, really like.

There's not much reality or intellect to be found.
