Big Screen: Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Sweet but cheesy. I enjoyed it more for the NYC settings (oh nostalgia to my early NYC days…Ludlow Street, I miss you!) than for the plot which I thought was sadly more juvenile than I expected. Unlike Juno, which was very much a movie about growing up, Nick and Norah was just about “being that age.” Also found the title a bit of a misnomer. Like buying a sign that says “we really want to hype our soundtrack.”
But Michael Cera did give a wonderfully tender, nuanced performance. So there’s that.
