Offbeat romantic comedy with an intelligent script. A record store owner (as in: vinyl LPs) gets dumped by his girlfriend, and looks back over previous breakups in an attempt to come to terms with his situation. Aiding (or hindering) this process are the two youths who help out at the shop, as well as the singer that he develops a crush on. The ex-girlfriends are played by a string of Hollywood beauties.

Ian Douglas: My only real problem with this movie -- which certainly is fresher than most things out of Hollywood, as well as having an insightful script -- is who the target market is likely to be: the constant references to artists from bygone eras will lose the youngsters, and the techno soundtrack will not appeal to the older generation. Which may result in limited success at the box office.
Jodi Rosenthal (20): This is movie is about music and the people who are obsessed with it - I related. The acting is superb, the script is fresh and exciting, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Anyone who appreciates a sharp, intelligent and funky film will enjoy it. It's target market are people who enjoy life and find meaning in lyrics of songs.
