The romantic trials of the owner of a London record shop, after his girlfriend leaves him for another man. Now a major motion picture from Touchstone Pictures starring John Cusack. Rob is a pop music junkie who runs his own semi-failing record store. His girlfriend, Laura, has just left him for the guy upstairs, and Rob is both miserable and relieved. After all, could he have spent his life with someone who has a bad record collection? Rob seeks refuge in the company of the offbeat clerks at his store, who endlessly review their top five films (Reservoir Dogs ...); to five Elvis Costello songs ("Alison" ...); top five episodes of Cheers (the one where Woody sang his stupid song to Kelly ...). Rob tries dating a singer whose rendition of "Baby, I Love Your Way" makes him cry. But maybe it's just that he's always wanted to sleep with someone who has a record contract. When will he see Laura again. And Rob begins to think (awful as it sounds) that life as an episode of thirtysomething, with all the kids and marriages and barbecues and k.d. lang CDs that this implies, might not be so bad
