High Fidelity Reviews

High Fidelity, with its knowing take on men, messed-up romance and music, is like one long, hook-filled pop song for the eyes.

Peter Bradshaw

It is still a bit wimpy and sugary, but it's definitely entertaining, and the translation to American accelerates the tempo refreshingly.

High Fidelity is an extraordinarily funny film, full of verbal and visual wit. And it is assembled with immense skill.

Black is terrific as the obnoxious Barry, who abuses customers ignorant enough to come in and ask for 'I Just Called To Say I Love You', while Louiso is almost as good as the mousy but equally snobbish Dick.

As a film about males it`s amazingly insightful for women. The soundtrack`s another great plus. I just adored this film.

A film pragmatic enough to concede that almost every relationship is doomed, but romantic enough to realize that it's worth it to carry on in spite of that fact, High Fidelity is one of the smartest and funniest romantic comedies of the past few years.

You'll laugh, you'll cringe in recognition, you'll go home and start recording a new tape.

This slickly scripted, knowingly played and cameo-strewn comedy stands on its merits as an Alfie for the millennial generation.

A hip, knowing look at how certain young men put off growing up until they are finally too miserable to postpone it any longer.

The virtues of High Fidelity are that Rob owns up to his obvious shortcomings, and that Cusack's performance has a self-deprecating edge that muffles the pops and scratches of Rob's personality.

Speaking to camera for much of the running time, Cusack creates an engaging portrait in male insecurity and selfishness as flawed record shop owner Rob Gordon.

As for Mr. Cusack, there's nothing potential about his stardom any more. He's the self-doubting, self-flagellating, self-ironic soul of "High Fidelity," and he's great.

The result is a romantic comedy that transcends its genre to become the giddy cinematic anthem of an era.

It's Jack Black who started scoring more film work based on his turn; he's hilarious as a record-store slob who's so contemptuous of the customers that he would just as soon chase them off as listen to their opinions and requests.

Movie Metropolis

While the second half is a pleasure, it's the first half that's less impressive. I've seen this deadpan narrator with the bottled-up angst so many times that I looked to the lines and the minor characters to see me through.

Funny, neurotic, and charming, but not for kids.

Nick Rogers

In his best Zeroes performance, John Cusack traced Rob's realizations and reconciliations with resonant thoughtfulness and wit - the worst-case scenario of Lloyd Dobler after Diane Court was done with him, resigned to life as an old, sad bastard.

The title lies--this comedy's delights rate strictly on the lo-fi scale, which is indicative of the appealingly laid-back vibe.

High Fidelity propose ainsi une vision réaliste et jamais boursouflée d'une époque où le passage à l'âge adulte aura été repoussé, dans certains cas, de près d'une décennie
