Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist



Over the weekend, I watched Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, a movie I have been wanting to see since I saw its initial trailer. A friend of mine recommended that I read the book before the movie, which is true in all cases of book-turned-movie, but I couldn't find the book anywhere and I guess I got lazy.

I was hooked on the movie because it looked a lot like Juno, an independent film about teenagers and music. And, it has Michael Cera starring in it and another no-name female lead. What I discovered: this film is no Juno. Juno is a MUCH better movie than this one. I will remember Juno, but I will long forget Nick and Norah.

Problems for me existed within the plot. The whole plot was a little far-fetched, and the portrayal of teenage love was mediocre. They did a great job with encapsulating how someone can't get over someone else and how hard moving on is. I just think it's unrealistic to paint the picture for teenagers that one can find true love, and establish a solid relationship where they are already "active" in just one night. I was surprised how quick they "got moving" once they were alone. Great message.

I thought it was unbelievable how many open parking spots there were in New York City, where the movie was filmed, on a Friday night. Now, I'm no NYC native, but I would think that parking would be a bit difficult, as would driving. But no, these inexperienced drivers found a parking spot in front of every bar and club they wanted, pulled U-turns in the streets, and moved quickly from one block to the next. Unrealistic.

The premise was kind of cool though: They were moving through NYC to find their favorite band who was playing a surprise show. They kept getting clues all along the way to find where they would play. But here's the thing that bothered me--once they found Fluffy, the band they were looking for, Nick and Norah just take off to go home. What else did they search for? What other teenagers, or anyone for that matter, would spend HOURS looking for a free show of their favorite band, find it, and then just leave??? Who cares if it's three or four in the morning? It's your favorite band AND it's free! That doesn't make sense to me.



It's also quite weird how Nick's love interest had moved on from him to another guy but then she just kept stalking him and trying to get back together with him. Honestly, in real life, I think the girl would just move on. She was like super-stalker. It's hard for me to take these movies seriously when the characters are not authentic and the plot is just too far-fetched.

Perhaps the two things I liked in the movie was the focus on music and the portrayal of the drunk girl--she did an excellent job being that drunk girl. Hilarious. The mix tapes and the focus on music was really cool. They have a pretty good soundtrack to accompany this movie, and music played during the movie was also really good. Very indie. Very good.

It's movies like these that teenagers will watch and have unrealistic hopes! I used to watch movies like these when I was younger and I was filled with these lofty ideas about my future. It just doesn't happen this way. I guess it's good to get lost in a movie, but it was trying to be real and it wasn't. I wasn't even that entertained. I was more annoyed I guess.

I also enjoy movies that take place in the span of one day. I think those scripts are really clever. And I also don't understand the inclusion of Nick's gay friends. I didn't know how necessary that was--it just kind of seemed thrown in there for no apparent reason--and I didn't even buy them as gay characters. I know there's no stereotypical role, but the acting didn't even convince me. It was another odd hindrance to the film. And trust me, I have no problems with gay people or including them in films... It just seemed random for all the commenting they did on it during the movie.

The cameo by Andy Samberg might have been my favorite moment. Then it went downhill.

Is the book better and/or different? I might have higher hopes for the piece of fiction rather than this film.

What do you think of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist?
