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.

Goofs

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 »

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.

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.
