Critic's Review Heading
Good
Based on the novel by Nick Hornby, High Fidelity is a quirky comedy that explores the romantic misfortunes of the main character. As far as the plot goes, there really isn't one - High Fidelity is a movie driven by characters and situational comedy. There's no deep meaning to High Fidelity, although it occasionally toys with the importance of pop music to a person's psychological development. There's also a hint of Woody Allen in the project, from the neuroses of the main character to the Annie Hall-type dissection of a failed romance. Because of its quirky characters, smart dialogue, and occasional bursts of penetrating humor, High Fidelity stands out as a "small" motion picture that deserves wide exposure.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Rob Gordon (John Cusack) is the owner of a semi-failing record store in Chicago where he sells music the old fashioned way—on vinyl. He's a self-professed music junkie who spends his days at Championship Vinyl with his two employees Dick (Todd Louiso) and Barry (Jack Black). Although they have an encyclopedic knowledge of pop music and are consumed with the music scene, it's of no help to Rob whose needle skips the love groove when his long-time girlfriend Laura (Iben Hjejle) walks out on him. As he examines his failed attempts at romance and happiness, the process finds him being dragged kicking and screaming into adulthood.
