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.


Factual error: When John Cusack puts Springsteen on his LP-player, he places the needle at the start of the record. The song that plays is the studio version of "The River." Therefore, the album has to be "The River," which is a double album, but "The River" is not at the start of either of the two LPs, but is the last song on LP #1. (00:18:10)
