Aroview: American adaptation of Nick Hornby's beloved English novel about pop music obsession and the vagaries of romance loses surprisingly little in the Trans-Atlantic translation, thanks to John Cusack's agreeable acting persona as well as his integrity as co-producer.
Purists will have quibbles, but like a respectable remake of an endearing pop song, this holds its own and yet doesn't taint your memory of the original.
4 stars (Very Good) Bob owns a record store in Chicago selling music the old-fashioned way, on vinyl, with two wacky music-snob employees. When his girlfriend Laura walks out, he revisited his previous relationships to work out where he's going wrong. Funny, a real classic.~GenXGirl
