COMING CLEAN ON CLEAN The folks at Scrubbing Bubbles surveyed women on how they cleaned their house (it's surely in their best interest to know their consumers). A clear majority, 98 percent, said they wanted their home to look clean throughout the week, which can only make one curious about the other 2 percent. But we digress. Among the findings: 73 percent of women keep their homes clean by picking up as they go; another 39 percent hide clutter in unseen places, like under the bed or...

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 MAL VINCENT By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot TORONTO Clad in a yellow T-shirt and carrying a bright red backpack, Michael Cera, age 20, looked like the proverbial deer caught in headlights. "Uh, hey," he said to a reporter as he pulled the backpack off and dropped it on the floor. This is the guy whom they were calling, at the Toronto Film Festival, "comedy's current wunderkind." He's the one Entertainment Weekly recently named No. 1 among under-30 actors in America. His comic...

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...
