High Fidelity

Rob (John Cusack) realizes that his Top 5 break-ups were not exactly what he remembered, feeling better after revisiting each. After her dad's death, Laura (Iben Hjejle) asks Rob to take her back. Laura organizes a launch party for the CD that Rob produced. At the party, Barry's (Jack Black) band makes a surprisingly great performance (they perform Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On") and Rob finally feels happy. He ends up making a compilation tape for Laura this time.


Continuity mistake: When John Cusack is at a house after the funeral, he is standing in front of a fireplace. You can see the boom microphone dip into the top of the screen above his head.

Rob Gordon: What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands, of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?
