Nick and Norahs Infinite Playlist

"Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" is a comedy about two people thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick (Michael Cera) frequents New York's indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and a vague ability to play the bass. Norah (Kat Dennings) is questioning pretty much all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band's secret show and ends up becoming the first date in a romance that could change both their lives.

Dove Review

This movie has something to offend just about everyone. There is a lot of drinking in the film by teens (or at the least very young adults) and one girl is very drunk in the movie. There is sex between an unmarried couple and a lot of sexual innuendos. An intoxicated girl sees an actor named Jesus who is smoking and says, “I’ve found Jesus.” So there is smoking in the film too. This cannot be considered a family movie in any way.

The premise of the film is that Nick (Michael Cera) has broken up with his girlfriend, and in a chance encounter finds Norah (Kat Dennings), and the only thing they really have in common is music. But they hang out together all night and it looks like their chance meeting could be a life-changer for each of them.

The film has a few funny moments, but is not worth sitting through because of the junk the viewer has to put up with. We are unable to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this film.
