Cusack has ineffable charm, but he keeps it tuned at the lowest possible frequency.

...the plot could have been better explored if it was discovered what the plot was.

Isn't all that romantic and is only half as funny as it thinks it is.

There's not much to convince you that High Fidelity isn't a vanity production with some good tunes.

I didn't see this movie because I was miserable that evening, I was miserable that evening because I saw this movie.

So much care has been contributed to the soundtrack that director Frears has forgotten about the importance of the film itself.

When happiness does arrive in this movie, it has the air not of something that you reach, like your top speed, but of something that you give in to, like baldness or old age.

Instead of burrowing into Rob's life, we feel like we're skimming across it.

The insistent verbal nonsense among them wears thin very fast for folks who don't keep their vinyl collection in plastic sleeves. Absolutely, this is a romantic comedy that preaches to the converted.

It's got great music -- and great music trivia -- but a shaky soul.

Stephen Frears ... seems on unsteady ground converting an essentially British story (the novel was set in London) to the American idiom.

Other than those rare giggles or guffaws, High Fidelity is strictly analogue.

... a bright entertainment that doesn't insult its audience ...a romantic comedy built on a determinedly limited scale

Stands out as a 'small' motion picture that deserves wide exposure.

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.
