The hit comedy High Fidelity is the story of record shop owner Rob Gordon (Cusack) on a search for love (and the reasons behind his failed relationships) against a backdrop of over 70 songs spanning multiple decades and genres of music. With or without the help of his record store buddies Dick (Todd Luiso) and Barry (Jack Black’s breakout role), Rob revisits past relationships in hopes of figuring out where he has gone wrong. Released in 2000, The New York Times praised Cusack as “a master at easygoing camaraderie.” Rotten Tomatoes has High Fidelity ranked No. 14 on the list of Best Romantic Comedies.
