High Fidelity (15) 
Early thirty-something Rob Gordon (Cusack) is a slacker who owns a vintage record shop, a massive collection of LPs, and innumerable top-five lists in his head. Thunderstruck by the desertion of his latest girlfriend, begins a quest to confront the women who instigated his top-five breakups to find out just what he did wrong.
