Cusack plays Rob Gordon, a record store owner in his 30s whose girlfriend Laura (Hjejle) has just left him. At the record shop — named Championship Vinyl — Rob and his employees Dick (Louiso) and Barry (Black) spend their free moments discussing mix-tape aesthetics and constructing “top-five” lists of anything that demonstrates their knowledge of music.
Rob, recalling his five most memorable breakups, sets about getting in touch with the former girlfriends, including Charlie (Zeta-Jones) and Sarah (Taylor). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Fidelity_(film)
If you like music, great dialogues and good actors: this is the movie to rent (or buy)!
Here are some quotes to get you hungry for more: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/High_Fidelity
“Should I bolt every time I get that feeling in my gut when I meet someone new?
Well, I’ve been listening to my guts since I was 14 years old, and frankly speaking, I’ve come to the conclusion that my guts have shit for brains.” Rob (John Cusack)
Dick: It guess it looks as if you’re reorganizing your records. What is this though? Chronological?
Dick: Not alphabetical…
Dick: No fuckin’ way.
Customer: Hi, do you have the song “I Just Called To Say I Love You?” It’s for my daughter’s birthday.
Barry: Yea we have it.
Customer: Great great… Well, can I have it?
Barry: No, you can’t.
Customer: Why not?!
Barry: Because it’s sentimental tacky crap that’s why. Do we look like a store that sells “I Just Called to Say I Love You”? Go to the mall!
Customer: What’s your problem?!
Barry: Do you even know your daughter? There’s no way she likes that song! Oh oh oh wait! Is she in a coma?
