  • This is one of my favourite films, and it's based on a book by one of my favourite authors, Nick Hornby
  • I really love both John Cusack and Jack Black, who plays one of his geeky assistants, and the interraction between their two characters and with Dick, the other assistant, makes for perfect comedy
  • One of my favourite moments is when Jack Black's character asks a customer to leave because he asked if they sold Stevie Wonder's I just called to say I love you
  • However, one of the most impressive characters in my opinion is Rob's latest girlfriend, Laura, beautifully played by Iben Hjejle, a Danish acress who I wasn't familiar with before I saw this film
  • I have watched this film time and time again and it never gets old, and I would highly recommend it

      This is one of my favourite films, and it’s based on a book by one of my favourite authors, Nick Hornby. It stars John Cusack, as Rob, a hapless record store owner who is obsessed by lists. After his relationship breaks down he lists his five most painful breakups, and this, coupled with some sort of mid-life crisis inspires him to trace his former partners and find out why they broke up with him. This hilarious yet sometimes emotional journey is interspersed with the story of his current

      break-up and his every-day life in the record store.

      I really love both John Cusack and Jack Black, who plays one of his geeky assistants, and the interraction between their two characters and with Dick, the other assistant, makes for perfect comedy. One of my favourite moments is when Jack Black’s character asks a customer to leave because he asked if they sold Stevie Wonder’s “I just called to say I love you”.

      I also like pretty much everybody else in this film; and it has a pretty wonderful cast, including famous ...


      • names Lisa Bonet, Joan Cusack, Lili Taylor, Sara Gilbert and a very young-looking Catherine Zeta-Jones. However, one of the most impressive characters in my opinion is Rob’s latest girlfriend, Laura, beautifully played by Iben Hjejle, a Danish acress who I wasn’t familiar with before I saw this film. She is a breathe of fresh air, playing the rational female to Cusack’s rather stereotypical bumbling male, and she plays the role with humour and a semi-dry wit.

        As I love music I was really able to appreciate all the music

        played throughout this film, and I could also relate to the top-five musical lists and the mix-tapes that Cusack’s character loves to make.

        I really like the energy of this film. It has a magic to it that is hard to explain; there’s something very optimistic about it, and the combination of great music, love and loss, the colourful story and vibrant characters all combine to make it flow just beautifully.

        I have watched this film time and time again and it never gets old, and I would highly recommend it.
