Not only does Cusack shine here, this was easily one of the best Jack Black roles ever and believe it or not, it saddens me to say that. Jack Black has the comedy gene inside him and as much as I truly believe he's funny in his own way, most of his roles fall flat (much like the ill fated career of funny man Martin Lawrence). The scene where Black tells the father looking for "I Just Called To Say I Love You" that he clearly doesn't know his daughter is priceless as is the scene where the boys give Tim Robbins and imaginary beat down. I still laugh myself into stitches when I see those bits.
HIGH FIDELITY is one of many similar roles Cusack played over a decade stretch of flicks, and though it's not his best (SERENDIPITY wins that race by a mile), it's still a good hearted fun time and was an easy shot to down all these years later. The gang nails a lot of "bro code" ethics in this flick, from hanging with the boys, women, music and movies. It sounds so simple because it is, these are things guys love and talk about when their together and nothing paints a better picture of it than this movie. Obviously comedy has changed over the years, but I'm happy to say that some of these older flicks from back in day don't feel as dated as you might think. If you haven't seen this, now's as good a time as any.
Deleted Scenes: Again, I'm reminded of CLERKS with nine small scenes that pretty much amount to nothing but are slightly entertaining on some levels.
Previews: There's a theatrical trailer for the feature film.
