High Fidelity - * * *

Stephen Frears directs this romantic comedy about a slacker (John Cusack) who owns a record store who sets his sights on winning back his ex-girlfriend (Iben Hjejle). Joan Cusack, Sara Gilbert, Lili Taylor, Tim Robbins, Lisa Bonet, Jack Black, Natasha Gregson Wagner and Todd Louiso star. Catherine Zeta-Jones has a cameo. Based on Nick Hornby’s novel.

Capsule Review: A witty script and some good performances enhance this romantic comedy. The flaw: there’s no real romance here. But Cusack alone makes this one worth watching, and the great supporting performances from Jack Black and Todd Louiso are pure enjoyment.
