MUSICAL SOULMATE

NICK AND NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST (2008)
– 4 out of 5 stars

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist is about two individuals who meet while finding a secret show for their favourite band, “Where’s Fluffy?”. Nick is nursing his broken heart after being dumped and cheated on by Tris, and he burns mixtapes (up to volume 12) for her one month after even though she has started dating around. Norah goes to the same school as Tris and frequently picks up the mixtapes Tris dumps. When they hear about their favourite band, Where’s Fluffy, having a secret show, they stay up all night to find it and their paths cross. Nick’s friends see the potential in Norah and matchmakes them together, while helping her to send her extremely-drunk buddy Caroline back home.

The whole movie is just about that magical night of how Nick and Norah get to know each other better and find their musical soulmates. It’s extremely hilarious especially with Nick and his Yugo (that yellow car in the poster). His “this is not a cab”, “this is not a toy” defenses against his Yugo is so funny! Caroline’s drunken escapade is another funny thing, especially the mini story of their disgusting piece of chewing gum. Nick’s gay friends are so cool! Especially Lethario who headbutts Tal at the end of the film. Yay, indie music rocks!
