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

Did You Know?

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".

When Steve and Linda are washing dishes they break a dish. They bend down to clean it up and end up sitting on the floor. At first they are several feet apart (enough space for a broken dish). Suddenly they are close enough to kiss. See more »

Unfortunately one of Cameron Crowe's less recognized films..
18 January 2004 | by ecclusiasticsSee all my reviews

Singles follows the dating lives of a bunch of apartment-block residents; set in grunge era Seattle- but you already knew that. This is not a 'great' film but it exudes a genuine warmth and will surely give you those feel good fuzzies.

What I liked most about the film was the way this eclectic mix of love stories came together so well. All the characters are extremely likeable (Campbell Scott's especially) and you get emotionally invested in them very soon.

This is the kind of film you can just kick back with on a rainy Saturday afternoon- you don't need to exert much mental energy to follow the rambling plot; just prepare to watch representations of very real relationships that you probably will be able to relate to on some level.
