John Cusak teamed up with friends to turn a book by Nick Hornby that was based in London into a movie based in Chicago. When I saw this movie in the theater I loved it and saw it several times (paying full price each time). I was disappointed that the movie didn't include some of my favorite parts of the book. Then it came out on DVD and those parts were included in the deleted scenes. Now if I could only figure out how to program my DVD player to think those scenes are actually in the movie, it would be perfect. As it is, if you liked Say Anything or Better Off Dead, you'll love this movie.
