I'm not yet done posting about Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist! I read this interesting post on Feministing about it. A lot (or maybe even all) of the issues Samhita raises are not issues in the book and are due to either changes made to the plot or due to the visual aspect of the movie. It highlights for me how different the experience of reading is compared to watching a movie and how there are different issues involved in each. And the nerdy aspect to Nick really wasn't there in the book. Sure, he wasn't the popular hearthrob type, but he was much hipper in the book.
Can I also say how much I agree that the gum thing was totally lame, gross, and unneeded? Yeck.
