I wish that the characters were a bit more likable, especially Cusack’s who’s very shallow, only really cares about sex and can’t seem to get over his past girlfriends but overall it’s a mildly entertaining, if forgettable, rom com. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Cusack, Jack Black and Todd Luiso and of course as a music buff and a vinyl lover, I appreciated all the references and all the mixtape making. Also, I enjoyed seeing cameos from Bruce Springsteen and a very young, pre-Drake and Josh, Drake Bell.
