Five top break-ups; Alison Ashworth, Penny Hardwick, Jackie Allen, Charlie Nickol-

while when he was attending college. He broke up with her because he was not getting
anywhere with her. Charlie Nickolson was a women that he dated also while he was in
college his sophomore year. He was very insecure when he was with Charlie and wor-
ried about her breaking up with him, and moving on to one of her friends in her design
department; and she did. Sarah Kendrew and him got along great because they were
both broken over their ex’s. It was not a big relationship they were kind of just having
sex. None the less he was still deeply upset. Then he met Laura the girl that he loved.
They dated for a short while then they broke up. High Fidelity is a basic love story with a
huge musical background in it, and some unique twists.
High Fidelity is a basic love story. He falls in love with some women only later to end
up doomed and feeling the pain of their break up. Through this process of these rela-
tionships he goes through “top five break-ups”; he starts to feel uncertain about his life.
career, and relationships. He is always doomed at the beginning to have bad relation-
ship with all the women he is dating. Later at the end of the movie he learns what he
has been doing wrong in all these relationships. He either calls them or meets them to
discuss why they had broken up with him. At the end of this movie is a basic comeback
story. He finds out why he has been such a “bad lover, or boyfriend”. He gets the girl of
his dreams Laura back and they are happier than ever; and now that he has all the
knowledge from the previous relationship wrongs he can keep his newly reignited rela-
tionship with Laure lasting.
Rob is the owner of a record store called Championship Vinyl. He has two previously
part time employees that have become full time over the course of Rob hiring them.
They discuss records all the time and provide advice to each other. Rob’s store seems
to be going down the drain along with the rest of his life at the time. Robs spends most
of his time at this store discussing with his employee’s his problems. Through the
process of him discussing his problems with them it makes rob very easily to see
through. You can see directly what he is thinking all the time and it does not make any
room for wondering about his character’s interests of likes. Even though you know eve-
rything about him the character of Rob in itself is discovered throughout the movie. It
would have not been a good movie if it was just bluntly put out there. His employee’s
personalities are open as well but they leave some room for the unknown; and it stays
this way throughout the movie. It does not show the rounding of their characters
throughout the movie like it does Rob’s.
The story has lots of music playing throughout the movie which helps define Rob’s
character and story line. In this movie they use music to connect to others, and show
the pain that Rob is feeling by playing a heart sobbed song of some sort. Through the
songs that are played or mentioned by Rob we can see the story directly through his
point of view. This story has a base of music thats why a good portion of the story has
to be seen through the music.
The story has a wide range of music selections that they play and mention. The
songs had to have been carefully selected by the makers of this movie. They also have
musical references throughout the story of Rob’s life. The music shows the feelings
throughout the movie like comically, sarcastically, and ironically.
High Fidelity is a basic love story with a huge musical background in it, and some
unique twists thrown in. The musical background throughout the story tells a one way
point of view through Rob’s mind. The story line experiences many twists and turns
throughout the movie that generally end up in the same category of Rob getting dumped
from the women. This movie also has a little bit of an obsessive with a top five listing.
Rob has many “top five” lists throughout the movie concerning his personal belongings
as well as a couple top five list from other people he mentions or that they say.
