Great Performances and a Great Romantic Comedy
There's something about how awkward Michael Cera is in everyone of the performances he plays that draws you to his breaking voice and small, but usually comic gold comments he makes throughout his movies. He was born a side character, but in this movie, he really shows he can act, and he does it in the best way possible, with a great movie. The tone is clear throughout Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, with help from a killer soundtrack, and the quiet devotion Cera has to his ex-girlfriend, Tris, and how mean she is to him that makes you wish throughout the movie for her downfall. The movie is so full of symbolism it's a joy to watch, and even though I have never been a huge fan of romantic comedies, this one is great. It gets away with a lot for a PG-13 movie, with some moderate language, including one F-word, sexual references, including the discussion and the audio of the female orgasm. But teens who are a fan of this genre, and some teens who aren't would love this lively movie, and it's definitely a good one.
