Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Time for a movie night with the boyfriend and the sister, so one more movie review....

I thought this was a pretty entertaining movie, definitely true to the senior year of high school drama.  Boys and girls and cheating and sex and friends and in some cases drinking.  Other than that though, there was no meaning to this  movie.

Really made me think though, it is time to focus on the bigger picture, making choices for the rest of our lives and all that jazz that seems daunting but really, just gotta have trust in what we do as human beings.  We change every day, so why do we think our future stays the same?

I loved the freedom expressed in this movie, all of the fun times had by friends and the wanting to just be in love and feel special that Norah shows. I definitely found plenty of emotion in this film.

On the bad side, it can be a little more graphic in some parts then I appreciated (a couple making love in the back of Nick's Yugo, and Nick and Norah making love in the studio) but even these parts were done in a mostly tasteful (or completely comical) way.

I would watch this movie a few more times, but is not one that I would gladly sit and watch over and over and over and over again.

I give Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist 3.5 out of 5 stars.
