I’ve heard a steady stream of good early comments about Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, enough that the teen love story/comedy is high on my radar for the fall. But while this trailer starts off well with a nice bit of familiar Michael Cera failure, it soon moves into the realm of rote and faceless ‘teen night out’ comedies; blur out the faces of Cera and Kat Dennings and this could be an ad for any of a hundred movies.

I hope this is just shoddy, pandering marketing. This is meant to be a movie about music to some extent, and despite the fact that we see a bit of Cera (unconvincingly) playing in a band there’s no correlation between the film’s title and the plot we’re spoon-fed here.
