Storyline

Romantic comedy about six of Seattle's young people, most of whom live in the same apartment building and whose lives revolve around the city's ever-expanding music scene. The inter-related stories about each character's progress through the singles scene are intriguing and often very funny, and the soundtrack is a grunge fanatic's dream, with the likes of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Mudhoney.

Debbie's frantic bike ride on her video date has her darting all over the city. She starts at the first restaurant at the end of lake union. To get to the second restaurant on first avenue downtown, she circles all the way around to Waterfront park on the Sound. After leaving the second restaurant, she crosses a draw bridge over the ship canal, only to suddenly end up back downtown near post alley and first avenue (where she just left the second restaurant). After getting a flat tire, she finally walks all the way home to the apartment on Capitol Hill (nearly 2 miles away). See more »

Crazy Credits

David (Jim True) walks down a street. His voiceover says that Steve's search for the perfect girl is a trap, and that he lives his own life like a French movie where everyone is cool and no attachments are made. He enters a beatnik club where a woman (Lara Harris) recites a poem in French. She sits down with him for a brief conversation in French and they leave together. See more »

Great film.
10 June 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Singles is a great film. I loved every minute of this film. Cameron Crowe has directed two films I consider essential viewing. Say Anything was the first and Singles is the second. The cast seemed like real people to me, and I loved all the performances. This film dealt with relationships in the 90's in a very realistic, funny and sometimes sad way. The soundtrack to this film is amazing. Great selection of tunes. This film has many moments you'll be quoting from for quite a long time. Great film.
