I've seen both. High Fidelity will make you want to shoot yourself because the cancer's taking too long.

And Con Air is a good movie that just so happens to have Cusack in it, he might well be the least interesting member of the cast and could be swapped out for damn near anyone.
Cusack is pretty forgettable in it, but what gives me the most laughs are Nicholas Cage's performance and the plausibility of the plot. The plot is absurd, and Cage's accent constantly fluctuates between redneck and standard midwesterner. A lot of the dialogue is wooden. It's really a horrible movie across the board.

I expected better from you Velvet.

Eat your heart out Oldman.
This is a pic of John C. Reilly from the Laurel and Hardy movie. I can't figure out who that reminds me of. Maybe a younger Dom Deluise?

Maybe its just you that's the epitome of mediocrity?
Says the guy who calls Braveheart his favourite movie.
Apparently Thunder Road is the movie that nobody in the US gets to see.

Thank goodness the French saved something.
