Sharp and witty adaptation of Nick Hornby's acclaimed novel stars John Cusack (who also co-scripted) as Rob Gordon, elitist music fan and owner of a small Chicago record store. Dumped by his girlfriend (Iben Hjejle), Rob examines his past romantic failures by reconnecting with former flames (Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lili Taylor, Joelle Carter) in an attempt to gain insight on his recent breakup. With Jack Black, Lisa Bonet, Todd Louiso, and Tim Robbins; directed by Stephen Frears ("The Grifters"). 114 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
