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 rock band Nirvana was supposed to contribute to the soundtrack but backed out. Cameron Crowe liked Nirvana's "Imodium" and wanted to use it in the soundtrack, he thought that song really belonged in the movie. They were working towards it and Crowe sent them a videocassette when Kurt Cobain was in Hawaii. Crowe told Rolling Stone in 2017 that he heard later that Cobain went to the premiere, somebody let him in through the exit door at the back of the theater and he watched the movie. Crowe said that he always thought that was pretty great, that that night, Kurt Cobain was also in the room. Before the movie was released, Nirvana told in a 1992 interview with MTV that they turned the movie down because it was just a love story that takes place in Seattle, and they didn't like "Rock n Roll movies".

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 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.
