Rob Gordon owns a record store in a Chicago back street. It's none of this new fangled CD stuff but pure vinyl, you know that strange large black thing that your parents keep going on about. He has just suffered a major break-up with is girlfriend and she's in the process of moving out of their apartment.

Although he doesn't employ anyone he seems to be plagued by these two people who are equally fanatically about vinyl and each day they turn up. However, one particular persons selling technique can hardly be classed as customer friendly. One day Rob decides to confront his five previous break-ups. So starts a mission to track down his previous girlfriends to discover just why they dumped him.

The picture is reasonable enough with some nice colours and rich textures and an above average bit-rate throughout. However, the picture could suffer from too much contrast at times but never the less there were no signs of any artifacting or outlining.

Again the sound is sufficient with the occasional use of the surround channels, mainly by the musical score, but there is one scene during a rain storm which is quite effective. This film turns out to be rather dialogue intensive and this remains impressively locked in the centre channel throughout the duration of the film.

The menu are boringly static and silent and along with some average extras makes this a rather disappointing disc. I was drawn to this film via the hype, and the music, and was bitterly disappointed with the results.

As for comedy I must have missed most of it, although there's an interesting alternative scene with an air-conditioning unit that made me laugh. Also John Cusack spent most of the film talking to the camera which I found extremely annoying after a while.

Fans of Jack Black may rejoice at his usual outlandish humour, and probably be happy to learn that he steals each and every scene he appears in, but if you've seen the trailer then you've seen the film. Very disappointing.
