There’s a moment in “High Fidelity,” the cult 2000 film about the romantic trials of a down-on-his-luck record store owner, that Maggie Denman is especially fond of. In the scene, a snobbish store clerk (played hilariously by Jack Black) berates a co-worker who claims to prefer Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels’ version of the song “Little Latin Lupe Lu” over the original by The Righteous Brothers.

There’s a winking self-awareness to the scene, but whereas another record store owner might identify with Black’s character, Denman finds his reaction a little ridiculous. “It’s like, how is it bad to state a preference?” Denman says, echoing John Cusack’s store owner. “It’s a preference!”
