I’m a fan of Michael Cera who plays Nick and a very big fan of Kat Dennings who plays Norah. Reason why I’m a big fan is because these 2 actor and actress play roles of their real personality. No matter what movies they are in, they always play themselves sort to say. Also I think Kat Dennings is so cute (sorry I had to admit it). I became a fan of hers when I watched The 40 Year Old Virgin. After watching Nick & Norah, I became a bigger fan of hers.
I don’t want to kill the movie incase you haven’t seen it. But the whole movie takes place in one night in Lower East Side Manhattan. Nick plays in a band with 2 of his gay friends Thom (Aaron Yoo) and Dev (Rafi Gavron). Nick still has high hopes of getting back with his ex-girlfriend Tris (Alexis Dziena) but she was cheating on him while they were together which Nick doesn’t know. Nick sends Tris mix tapes which Tris just throws away but Norah picks them up and listens to them. She doesn’t know who this Nick is but from the mix tapes she feels like he is her “musical soul mate.”
Nick and Norah hooks up in a club where Nick and his band played. Then the adventure starts from there and throughout the night. Tris started to get jealous seeing Nick with her friend Norah. They go around the city looking for a secret concert where a band name Where’s Fluffy will be playing. Throughout the movie there were some funny moments from Norah’s drunk friend Caroline (Ari Graynor), Nicks gay band friends, and his yellow Yugo. She gets lost so now Nick, Nora, and his band have to find her and find the band Where’s Fluffy as well. There’s also a secret about Norah… I won’t tell you what it is. I will end it here so you can go watch it yourself.
I’m not a big fan of date movies, but this one was good because of the funny moments and many scenes you can relate to. It’s a simple story but gives you a good feeling when you walk out of the theaters. I also just came back from New York so it was cool seeing many of the buildings, clubs, and streets of New York. This movie just reminds you all the good times you had when you were younger hanging out with your friends and how one night can change the way you see life. This movie was based off a book which I never read, but be sure to check it out as well. I’m happy to announce that R1 Concepts do sell brake rotors and pads for the Yugo!
Michael and Kat look good and played good as a couple. They have good chemistry in this movie. I’m happy that Kat Dennings finally got one of the main roles in a movie. I hope this will open up more doors for her.
