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

Goofs

When Cliff's band mate starts to read the review of their record he says "Once again when the shirtless Cliff Poncier begins to sing." But when the camera shows the article you can see that the review says "begins singing" instead. See more »

Quotes

The Mime: [after Steve and David give him and a couple whose car has broken down a lift to a night club they are going to] Let me tell you about love. Love disappears, baby! Every time I've been broke, the babe's been off like a prom dress.
Female Co-Passenger: Maybe it's the women you choose?
The Mime: Hey! Maybe I've been hurt! And maybe I've been dumped!

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 »

Apartment Complex Life
7 July 2004 | by msawyer-2See 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!
