    So much goes down on Nick and Norah's one enchanted evening that the best advice is to enjoy the ride -- the actual ride -- around this vibrant new New York.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Though the movie rambles in the middle, it gets back on track when Nick and Norah have a sweet encounter in an unexpected place. The soundtrack is an excellent counterpoint to the film's quirky scenarios.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The movie is filled with wonderful music, memorable characters and rich, quotable dialogue. But what makes the picture really soar is the way it reminds you what it feels like to fall in love -- and the endless, countless possibilities a new romance brings.

  • Bob Mondello

    Though these two really grow on you, what's almost more remarkable than Nick, Norah or their playlist (which may not be infinite, but really does include some great music) is the quirky, melting-pot world director Peter Sollett creates around them.

    NPR Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    A bright little screwball comedy that speaks for the vitality of new movies.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Michael Ordona

    It is a teen romantic comedy that largely fits the familiar template but is also fleshed out with atmosphere, a nice blend of broad goofiness and sophistication, and two appealing leads who bring it to life.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    If we must have teen movies, let them all be as sweet and seductive as Sollett's smartly observed romance.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Geared more toward teens, although that won't prevent older viewers with an affinity for romance from appreciating the vibes it gives off.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Sollett works easily and well with Cera and Dennings, and lends a touch of awkward realism to what, from a screenwriting perspective, is pure formula.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Some movies skate by fast on slick action. Others snap with crisp dialogue. Nick and Norah springs high on the bounce of its hugely likable leads, Michael Cera and Kat Dennings.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Travis Nichols

    Let's call this "High Fidelity Nano." It's a little bit less in every way, lighter and cuter than its archetypal elder, but it might just fit your present lifestyle all the better. Who needs to go back to the polysyllabic spree of John Cusack channeling Nick Hornby when you have Michael Cera making awkward emo look so lovable?

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The movie's title proves to be not entirely a case of bait-and-switch. The film really is a homage to vintage Hollywood comedy.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Sollett's working with stale material, clearly. He genuinely likes people, though, and his fondness revives "Nick and Norah" and sets it spinning with camaraderie and hope.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Jenni Miller

    It's a fantasy of one night in New York City and all its insanity, grossness, romance, and glamour.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Like the mix tapes that obsess its main characters, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist builds into something of infectious joy.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Regards its characters with affectionate detachment, and assures its audience that no great calamities or revelations are in store. Instead, there are a series of small crises and tiny epiphanies, all adding up to a story that courts triviality in its pursuit of charm.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Director Peter Sollett (Raising Victor Vargas) and cinematographer Tom Richmond transform nocturnal New York into a soft-focus wonderland for their sweet but screwball courtship.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Though this Nick and Norah have a lot more angst, they're just as worth watching, admiring and cuddling up to.

    Time Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    It's the journey that matters, however, and sometimes the film doesn't seem to know where it's going.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The conceit here is that if a boy and a girl love the same music, that means they're in love. Who am I to argue with such poetic whimsy?

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    It has a dogged all-night charm and a sense of who its audience is.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Has been designed to make gentle hearts soar beneath neo-grunge exteriors. It's a mixture of high-SAT humor and high-jinks so crude they're really low-jinks.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The movie itself seems to be locked in a kind of adolescence; it never quite blossoms into maturity, into a fully rounded whole. Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    So slight it's almost diaphanous--an hour after seeing it, what the movie leaves behind is not so much a memory as a mood. Still, it's a fine mood.

    Slate Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Every generation deserves its ultimate high school romance, and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist clearly aims to take the slot currently open. Despite a valiant attempt, though, it doesn't quite make the grade.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • John Anderson

    This is the kind of sparsely plotted comedy that depends on compelling characters, but it stars two young actors defined by ironic detachment.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Lacks some of the idiocy of your average teenage rom-com. But it doesn't bring much to the party. It sort of ambles along, with two nice people at the center of a human scavenger hunt. It's not much of a film, but it sort gets you halfway there, like a Yugo.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Sollett, hoping for a "Before Sunrise/Before Sunset" vibe, sadly settles for a soggy aftertaste.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Within the realm of a mildly good time.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stan Hall

    Lest anyone think this soils Cera's record, the movie actually highlights his unique gifts; his easygoing chemistry with co-star Kat Dennings is practically the only thing about this picture that isn't pathetically contrived.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    All I can seem to muster, post-screening, is a modicum of fondness and a probably impermanent relief that the film isn't anywhere near as awful as it might have been in less capable hands.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Plays like something crafted in a lab by 54-year-old hucksters trying to sell shit to the kids under the cheerless guise of "alternative." The only thing it's an alternative to? Good.
