Take your typical roadtrip movie, set it entirely in New York City in the course of one night, add several flawed but likeable characters and you get Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.

The plot, for the most part, isn't frankly anything special and can be very predictable at times.

Though the story is quintessentially New Yorker, the movie doesn't fall into the same tired homage to the city nearly every other film does, avoiding landmarks for the most part.

Though Nick and Norah are drawn in colour more than the secondary characters, even those sketched in only slightly are given depth typical of a high school movie.

Several refreshingly non-stereotypical gay teenagers fill the movie, adding humour and warmth without becoming the butt of jokes themselves.

Overall, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is above average teenage romantic comedy fare - a great choice for those looking for a light, fun movie.
