Our Score
During an eventful night in the Big Apple, bassist Nick (Michael Cera), the only heterosexual member of a gay boy band, bumps into Nora (Kat Dennings), a quirky high-school teen who's babysitting her outrageously drunk friend Caroline (Ari Graynor). All three are desperate to discover the venue for a secret gig by underground band Where's Fluffy but they're dragged off-course by a series of increasingly frantic mishaps. Nick falls for Nora, Caroline passes out then goes AWOL and Nick's bitchy ex-girlfriend (Alexis Dziena) tries to ruin the romance. More indebted to After Hours than Superbad, this late-night tour of Manhattan aims to be a smarter alternative to the usual teen movie yet fails to find the magical charm it needs to work properly. Instead it coasts leisurely by on its nicely mismatched central couple, gay-friendly supporting characters and name-checking of bands like Vampire Weekend and Band of Horses.

Summary

Heartbroken Nick pines for his conniving ex-girlfriend, unaware her friend Norah holds a torch for him. As the pair embark on a night around New York searching for a secret gig and a drunken friend, they discover a shared love of music and begin to realise the important things in life. Comedy drama, starring Michael Cera, Kat Dennings, Aaron Yoo and Rafi Gavron.
