Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Given their link, I suspect this is how much I would have liked 'High Fidelity' without Jack Black. This is an endearing, surprising, and very funny comedy, one of the most likeable films of 2002. Even given the familiar arc of the reformed curmudgeon and how well we get inside the characters' heads, their capacity to surprise us throughout is amazing. Grant's subtle mastery of his character is the best performance of his career, and young Nicholas Hoult is so convincing in every scene. (Is this what he's like for real?)
