About the Movie

From the guys who brought you Grosse Pointe Blank comes the absolutely hilarious High Fidelity. John Cusack (Being John Malkovich) stars as Rob Gordon, the owner of a semi-failing record store located on one of the back streets of Chicago. He sells music the old-fashioned way -- on vinyl, with two wacky clerks, the hysterically funny rock snob Barry (Jack Black) and the more quietly opinionated underachiever Dick (Todd Louiso). But Rob's business isn't the only thing in his life that's floundering -- his needle skips the love groove when his longtime girlfriend Laura (newcomer Iben Hjejle) walks out on him. And this forces him to examine his past failed attempts at romance the only way he knows how! For a rocking fun time, give High Fidelity a spin. It's sure to make your all-time top five list for comedies -- with a bullet.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: You're still smiling when the film is over. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 10, 2014

Fresh: Cusack is a master at playing smart, frazzled, self-flagellating hipsters, and the movie, propelled by his arias of angst, lets him strut his best stuff. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Feb 10, 2014

Fresh: It's hard to remember the last time guys were nailed so perceptively and dragged into adulthood so warmly and entertainingly. – Jay Carr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Mr. Frears has managed for the most part to retain the velocity of the narrative without sacrificing the psychological coherence of the characters. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Feb 10, 2014

Movies that Rock

It's a great movie. I own it. It's the definitive coming out movie for jack black. Cusack is at his best which is pretty much just playing steve mcqueen with a dash of the modern man to round him out. My only question is why isn't itunes hawking the soundtrack. It rocks.

High Fidelity

This Is One of the Greatest Films I know!!! A great Break up Movie... Great Monologues, excellent casting, you have both Cusacks, Black, Robbins, Zeta-Jones, Hjejle, Louiso, and it goes on. If you like Cusack and you love break up movies... get it!

The greatest book adaptation ever.

So what if it's Chicago instead of England? Top 5 must-movies for any man on the brink of maturity—and for anyone who wants to understand men on the brink of maturity, and why often it involves a lot of kicking and screaming. Get the soundtrack too.
