“Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist” looks okay

And trust us it took every bit of energy and restraint to not use a cloying phrase like “infinitely cute” or “infinitely great” or “infinitely (adverb of your choice).”

But joking aside, the flick which stars King Awkward, Michael Cera and gothickly cute Kat Denning, as a pair of teens who inadvertently get caught up in a wild first date over one night in NYC. Nothing special about the premise, but the chemistry looks like it’s there and these movies sometimes have a certain appeal. Yes, the whole teenagers find everlasting love over one-night was played out back when Linklater did it with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy (okay so they weren’t teenagers), but still.

This has a poor man’s Cameron Crowe feel to it. Is that a bad thing?

Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist hits theaters in October.

    I Just read a review of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Sounds like it might be a pretty good, and funny movie. Can’t wait to see it.

    I actually read the book awhile ago because I’m more than slightly obsessed with Michael Cera and I have been since he was fifteen and I was a creepy adult with a crush on a kid. Ok, so I’m only three years old than him, so it’s not that creepy. Although as a 22-year-old shopping in the young adult section of bookstores, I can’t help but feel weird. Anyway, this long-winded-going-nowhere comment was to say that I have been following the progress of this film for awhile now and when I read the book I thought it was only ok and didn’t have a lot of hope for the movie being too much better, other than the sheer brilliance of Michael Cera, but I think the movie looks pretty good. (this comment seems like it’s a waste of time, I’m sorry if you actually read it)
