Just got back from the premier movie screening of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist organized by Nuffnang Singapore. The screening was held at The Cathay and as it was a last minute decision, we basically rushed to the cinema to catch the movie with the rest of the Nuffnang Bloggers.
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, originally a book by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, is now a movie. Nick (Michael Cera), the only straight band member of “The Jerk Offs” has recently been dumped by his hot girlfriend, Tris (Alexis Dziena). Nick believes that he can win her back by sending her special songs on CDs that he has mixed just for her. Nick has sent her about 10 CDs, but Tris only throws them in the trash.
However, Tris’ best friend, Norah (Kat Dennings), has retrieved most of them, and she loves them. Norah has never met Nick, but the music he loves touches her heart. Norah and her friend Caroline are at a nightclub where “The Jerk Offs” are playing, and Norah is attracted to Nick while he is playing his guitar. Tris shows up at the same club with her new boyfriend. Norah doesn’t want Tris to think that she is dateless, so she asks Nick to pretend to be her boyfriend for 5 minutes and gives him a big kiss. Then Tris tells Norah that Nick is her ex-boyfriend. Now that Norah has Nick, the heartless Tris decides that she now wants him back.
A night of searching for the band “Where’s Fluffy” ends up with one of these girls winning Nick’s love.
Parts I like best is how the chewing gum basically passed on from one individual to another and another and another even after it went through a toilet bowl. It sure is funny especially when we hear the audience goes EEWWWW (when the girl picks up the chewing gum from within the toilet bowl)….. and then laughs (when the girl put the chewing gum back into her own mouth).
Was the movie good at the end of the day? I have to say yes.
Will there be alot of censorship happening in Malaysia when the movie premiers there? Definitely yes.
Would I recommend this movie to anyone? Yes.
