Movie Review: Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Can you believe that it’s already 2011 when I got to see this movie from 2008? Here’s another flick I wouldn’t mind getting on DVD, and I’d certainly love to get my hands on the original novel that the movie was based on. Yes, I loved Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.

Oohhh… and I would so get the soundtrack. Smile

Nick is the only straight member of a gay band and he plays bass. His bandmates are actually cute! Haha. He’s also nursing a broken heart, having just broken up with pretty blonde Tris. The way he copes with heartbreak is by making breakup mixes for Tris, which the latter throws away. Unbeknownst to both Nick and Tris, lovely and sensitive good girl Norah picks up the CDs and and is already a fan of Nick’s mixes.

The movie is about the night that brings these two together.


And the rest, as they say, is history. Smile

I’d love to say that I’m a music lover although all I seem to be good for is karaoke. Smile I was in a band in highschool, an all-girl band, but we didn’t stay together long enough to really make something out of ourselves. I love how Nick and Norah love music, go to clubs and parties, but don’t drink or smoke. They’re a good example of nice kids who know how to rock, without being stereotypical rockers or groupies. I like them. I wouldn’t mind being a high school teenager just like them (oh yeah, I forgot, I’m way past that age!).

Has anyone listened to the Soundtrack? I’m sure it rocks! What about the novel, can anyone link me up to a review? Thanks!
