I am very unoriginal, and incapable of independent thought. 100% of my opinions come from pop culture, majority public opinion, and Entertainment Weekly. In light of that, I will not challenge my mind and attempt to write a movie review that is witty, fresh, or intelligent. So, in the spirit of the film, here is my review of High Fidelity, in the form of Top 5 Lists:

1. Same old reliable John Cusack character (see also below)
2. Catherine Zeta-Jones... Michael Douglas will be shocked when he finds out she's carrying my baby
3. Set in Chicago... fuck London
4. How there were always many things going on in his life at one time... surprisingly true to real life
5. Jack Black... he's a funny motherfucker

1. Same old reliable John Cusack character (see also above)
2. Not enough Catherine Zeta-Jones
3. No Catherine Zeta-Jones naked
4. Pining over bitches in the rain... it's old hat
5. Iben Hjejle, the poor man's Robin Wright... I guess she wasn't that bad, but several things about her annoyed me. God-awful hair. Phony accent. And zits that mysteriously moved around on her face in the same scene.

Overall, it was enjoyable. The scene where Cusack kicks the piss out of Tim Robbins is some funny shit. The film could have used Cusack's Evanstonian hometown chum, Jeremy Piven, though.

Consider this post reviewed, bitch.

Marge, you being a cop makes you the man! Which makes me the woman -- and
I have no interest in that, besides occasionally wearing the underwear,
which, as we discussed, is strictly a comfort thing.
