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.
High Fidelity is a sharp and satisfying romantic comedy about the difficulty of commitment that utilizes Stephen Frears' incisive direction and some very knowing and sophisticated writing to give actor Cusack one of the best roles of his career.
Had High Fidelity been a glorified one-act set in Rob's store, with a wealth of banter among these assorted losers to keep us laughing, it would still be a fine film. Lucky for us, there is so much more.
