Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

BellyUp Aspen has free movie nights sometimes.

Tuesday night, they screened Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. Steve and I went, had a couple of drinks and enjoyed a film. It's a pretty cool deal.

Since I liked Michael Cera in Juno, I thought it might be fun to see what he was up to here.

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is cute, witty, funny, sweet, zany and whimsical. As the parent of a 17 year old, it was nice to see two levelheaded kids portrayed in a movie that showed teenagers having fun without glorifying teenage partying.

Putting aside the many improbabilities throughout the movie, it was an amiable, feel-good experience which falls short of Juno but that's a pretty high mark to shoot for.

Steve also really enjoyed it.

I've been awaiting the next "Juno" but nothing seems to meet that standard.
