Directed by Peter Sollett who did Raising Victor Vargas does a decent film adaptation of the novel by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan. It all starts out very innocent when Nick asks Norah to pretend on being his girlfriend momentarily to avoid his ex-girlfriend who's just walked in to his band's show. Then magically with one kiss Nick & Norah are off on an adventure roaming New York City, smack in the middle of the anxiety, happiness, & confusion of a first date.
They get into all sorts of mishaps & run into all different sorts of characters. It's a lighthearted funny film with Michael Cera (SuperBad) & Kat Dennings (The 40 Year- Old Virgin) playing Nick & Norah they don't fall short of a comedic performance this movie will have you laughing. The only downfall it's a pushed pretentiousness we have seen in films before Nick & Norah pretending to like each other to mask broken heart when clearly they do. One date over one very long night with two teenagers trying to recover from a broken heart with a light nature trying to figure out who they want to be & where the next good time is.
