Kat Dennings, Chad Michael Murray, & Rupert Friend Star Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 25, 2011 To Write Love on Her Arms began as an attempt to tell a story and a way to help a friend in Spring 2006. The story and the life it represented were both things of contrast "“ pain and hope, addiction and sobriety, regret and the possibility of freedom. Founder Jamie Tworkowski and the organization continue to show their support in the upcoming major motion picture film release titled...

By ROB DEWALT I iPod New York Rob DeWalt I The New Mexican Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, romantic comedy, rated PG-13, Regal Stadium 14, 424-6296, 3 chiles Adapted from a book of the same name by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist traverses plenty of familiar territory in the land of teen-centered romantic comedies. As in the films of John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off), audiences are served a slab of time-tested...

By JASON SILVERSTEIN "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist" sounds like a "High Fidelity" for the iTunes generation, which also sounds like a hipster disaster waiting to happen. I'm sorry, but to paraphrase an old English teacher, two-inch pixels on a screen will never be as impressive as a record collection, and the last thing the suffering music world needs is a movie to convince people to make infinite playlists instead of infinite top five lists. But "Nick & Norah" isn't the...

By Donna Freydkin NEW YORK -- If you don't yet know Ari Graynor, she'll stick with you after seeing Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. As Norah's booze-guzzling best friend, Caroline, Graynor goes missing one fateful night, ending up at Port Authority and having one very icky misadventure that involves gum and a filthy toilet. "It's the first thing people have said to me after seeing the movie. 'Tell me about the gum,'" she says. "It was disgusting. But the gum I put into my mouth...

By A.O. Scott Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist Directed by Peter Sollett Reviewed by A.O. Scott * As thin as an iPod Nano, as full of adolescent self-display as a Facebook page, "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist" strives to capture, in meticulous detail, what it's like to be young right now. Working from a popular novel by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (and an idiomatically spot-on screenplay by Lorene Scafaria), the director, Peter Sollett, spins a shy, sweet romance...

By Michael Machosky Michael Cera, at 20, already has a very interesting body of work behind him -- from the critically acclaimed TV show "Arrested Development" to the quirky teen romance "Juno." His newest movie, "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist," isn't much of a departure for Cera. Actually, it's right down the middle of his strike zone -- playing the role of a smart, funny, awkward guy who almost reluctantly becomes the story's romantic lead. Cera says he's not worried about...

Club-hopping across what is left of New York's East Village night spots is a winning invitation at any age. (Yes, we've been known to do it, and more recently than we're admitting.) In the case of "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," the titular couple are sweet mini-hipsters in search of the mythic rock group Where's Fluffy? The band is giving a "secret" concert in Manhattan, and it's a must-see for CD mixers. Where's Fluffy? promotes its "secret" shows on the walls of restroom stalls....

By Jeff Vice Deseret News NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST -- *** -- Michael Cera, Kat Dennings, Alexis Dziena; rated PG-13 (vulgarity, profanity, brief sex, substance abuse, slurs, violence) It's a good thing "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist" has such an appealing cast. This teen-centric comedy is continually straddling the line that separates cute from cutesy. There are times when it almost tilts too far in the latter direction, and a few others where it's painfully hip to a...

By Bob Strauss The kids in "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist" are a little more realistic than what you find in most teen movies. Pleasing and frustrating in about equal measure, this youthful romantic comedy has a likably gritty atmosphere and some fine, deadpan delivery by the new screen master of dry wit, Michael Cera. The film's dialogue is often self-consciously overwritten. The scenario, scripted by Lorene Scafaria and taken from Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's young-adult...
