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. Written by dirk-79

Trivia

The movie soundtrack was reissued in a 2×CD and 2×LP edition on May 19, 2017, to mark the 25th anniversary of the OST, coincidentally one day following Chris Cornell's death, although the release date had been announced in January 2017. The reissued soundtrack features a new mastering and a bonus disc of previously unreleased material, including rare Chris Cornell recordings. Amongst the unreleased material: demos, instrumentals, and live recordings from the likes of The Replacements' Paul Westerberg, Alice in Chains, and Mudhoney. Also included is "Touch Me I'm Dick" by Matt Dillon's fictional band in the film, Citizen Dick, featuring Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. It marks the first commercial release of "Touch Me I'm Dick". The reissue also includes new liner notes and track-by-track descriptions by Cameron Crowe. See more »

Quotes

Cliff Poncier: I used to live out by the airport, underneath the flight patterns. It was really noisy with the planes going by all day. I used to have cookouts, and no one would come because of the noise. I got used to it. And then, when I moved... I missed the noise. I missed those planes.
Janet Livermore: Cliff, what are you talking about?
Cliff Poncier: I don't know.

Apartment Complex Life
7 July 2004 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Having lived in Seattle during the years of my life most of the characters are in this movie, I was able to relate to this movie. Anyone who has lived in an apartment complex where people have dated and known a bit too much about each other can appreciate this film. The cameo appearances of members of pearl jam and xavier mcdaniel were a great touch.

The viewer is left with what I could call a warm feeling much like watching the sun set on a day towards the end of summer. Contemplation of all the good and bad that may have occurred in the last few months..

Maybe that's a bit too abstract, but if this movie gets you there then fine.

And yes, the sun does shine sometimes in Seattle!
