I honestly liked the movie better than the book. I found Naomi to be whiny and immature, flying off the handle randomly, or failing to see reason — which is the point her character is so interesting… but in the movie, you get a break from her character. Ely, played by Pierson Fode brings some incredible eye-candy. I was literally drooling at the screen. Other notable performances that excelled my reading experience was Gabriel played by Matthew Daddario and Bruce 2 played by Ryan Ward… maybe it had something to do with the hotness metre blowing a gasket, but these boys really fleshed out the characters. Bruce 2 had the opposite effect, I got a geeky confidence from him in the novel, even though he is an introvert, but the film Bruce 2 felt like a lost lamb falling prey to both Naomi and Ely.
Longtime best friends Naomi and Ely live in the same Greenwich Village apartment building with their mothers while attending New York University. But unlike Nick and Norah, Naomi and Ely come across as thoughtless and self-absorbed. Part of the problem may be that the authors rotate through the perspectives of numerous characters, including Ely's new boyfriend Naomi's ex and a fawning girl from Schenectady who seems to exist mainly to reinforce how cool Naomi is. These characters do not add much—with the exception of a vulnerable doorman who tries to connect with Naomi. Naomi's narration is peppered with tiny icons, which look trendy but can be hard for readers to decipher. These playful touches, however, may not be enough to hold the audience's interest until Naomi and Ely reach their own important conclusions about love.
