Movie: Nick and Norah’s infinite playlist

Synopsis: Michael Cera is typecast as Michael Cera in a teenage movie that tries to mix High Fidelity and Before Sunrise wile trying to be quirky.

Passes the Bechdel testyes

Is it any good? No, not really. The storyline is pretty shallow, and maybe there is simply too much teenage angst in this film to really do it for me. Still, there are a bunch of saving graces; I have a soft spot for music movies, since I’m a bit of a music myself at times, there are some quirky details that are funny (like the Yugo, chewing gum recycling). If you just want to sit back and watch a simple rom-com you could do worse though.

Verdict: 6/10
