Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist Reviews

Page 1 of 9
September 8, 2008
A patchwork of good scenes that are stitched together, like a feature film made from a diverting YouTube series, but as a film it's... nothing.

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist lacks some of the idiocy of your average teenage rom-com. But it doesn't bring much to the party.

Seems like it was made by a ghost alien from Triton, moon of Neptune.

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

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

The last half hour of this is so good, that I wish the rest of it would've been more like it. A better idea would be to stay in and rent BEFORE SUNRISE.

Cera and Dennings' pouting is obviously not clever or even jaded enough for their stale one-liners to sustain them as anything more than just walking scapegoats for the pretentious.

Caloric with whimsy but lacks distinctive dramatic weight, to a degree that it ceases to be a movie and transforms into something resembling a tiresome Diet Coke commercial.

Cera and Dennings save the film from being a complete waste of time with their quirky chemistry that's awkward, at times clumsy but consistently feels genuine.

They pull off the blend of wide-eyed earnestness and sarcasm, but it's unlikely teens or adults will relate to the 2D characters.

Nick & Norah's only wishes it had some of Juno's wit and energy.

Tinny teens dragged through mirth-free misadventures one New York night.

Even Michael Cera's unique brand of awkwardness can't save this frustratingly weak adaptation.

Nick and Norah take a question with an immediate, obvious answer -- will they or won't they hook up after they meet cute -- and stretch it out to a very long 90 minutes.

Could have been Ferris Bueller's Night Out but it's not even close.

Sputters like a broken iPod ... Cera's Juno character would probably hate this movie.

A night on the town with these two hip, quick-with-a-quip teens lacks spark and drags, even at 90 minutes.

A dim comedy about kids who just want to have some fun.
