Whereas recent comedies such as ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘Superbad’ have shown mainly immature young males dealing with serious issues growing into responsible adults, Nick and Norah tend to celebrate the immature side of things. Although that can be funny it should be done with a sense of sophistication or lack of cliched dialogue. This film was so typical in its plot narrative, its hard not to think that this was already a waste of time. The characters are not likable in the slightest, and seem to be concerned about the most minor problems in the world which include finding a mysterious band’s secret shows, untrustworthy ex boyfriends/girlfriends and chewing gum (a gag that ran out of steam as soon as it started). Many of the problems arise from the characters own doings rather than naturally. However, in this case it makes the characters almost self destructive and spoiled as they feel sorry for themselves without any real valid reason. The story line seemed to drag on towards the latter part of the film, especially since Nick is so twisted around his ex-girlfriend and hoping to rekindle his old love for her, that he failed to see that his perfect girl was right before his eyes all along.
The film does have some redeeming elements, however. The 'hotly-tipped' Michael Cera adds dimension and comedic observations to the otherwise boring ‘Nick’ by bringing up the odd witty one-liner to brighten things here and there. And the chemistry that slowly grows between the two main leads is rather sweet and seems genuine. Unfortunately these good moments are few and far between and do not cover up the flaws. There is nothing special about this film and it would be a lie if one said it wasn't predictable.
And what the hell was Fluffy about anyway?

HOMO-EROTICA is a strong-chested hairy-arsed man, who originated from Chile.
A man enters the stage.
He is holding a Chicken.
He places the Kitchen on centre stage and exits.
The Chicken is shot dead from off-stage
EXT. BEHIND A FARM HOUSE. MIDNIGHT.
An old man, BUD HANSON, about sixty years of age, born and raised
in America all his life. BUD walks urgently towards the camera.
As he enters into a CLOSE UP SHOT, he bends down to pick up a GUN.
Nearly lost ya there, kid.
Ha-ha.. yeah almost!
Dont'you worry, ill soon put an end to all this mumbo-jumbo
BUD looks into his home, the kitchen light is on and through the
curtains he can see his wife MARY-ANNE, of whom is married over
forty years. He blows her a kiss goodbye and looks out to the cool,
softly swaying cornfields. The MOON is bright tonight. BUD raises the
GUN near to his chest.
I told you so..
BUD fires one shot straight into the side of his head. The gunshot
ricochets violently across the field, the loud band reverberated
between the adjoining farm houses and echoed into the distance.
BUD lay on the floor, his body mishapen as he fell to his death.

At the age of 21 Jim Moray was hailed “…the greatest leap forward in folk for 30 years” (Neil McCormack,The Daily Telegraph) and “the most significant musician since Bob Dylan to decide that the folk idiom is the perfect vehicle for his musical adventures” (Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald).
Amongst other extravagant claims, his debut album ‘Sweet England’ was called “the most significant new development in English folk music since Fairport Convention's Liege and Leif.” (Nigel Williamson, Uncut) and “a revolutionary experience” (Nige Tassell, HMV Choice). Critics worldwide fell over themselves to tip Moray for great things.

The Random Lift - currently installed in two lifts in Portland Square at the University of Plymouth, United Kingdom. By pressing the ‘R’ button, people are taken to a random floor. The idea is to investigates the relation between space, time and architecture through conceptual approaches.
“Sorry I’m late, the lift kept choosing a different floor”
The Random Lift Button project was conceived as an opportunity to exemplify further the role of space at the mercy of time. Certainly in large commercial buildings lifts are implemented to squash space and enable people to move more quickly from one work activity to the next. Lifts become a temporal slippage in the experience of a building as a whole, we skip space and avoid people, places and the opportunity to see the ‘whole’.
