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
Campbell Scott's character is seen wearing a SubPop t-shirt, a well-known independent record company from Seattle which released many albums which became known as the "Seattle Sound", most notably Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Mudhoney. See more »
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 »
What I liked most about Singles was that many of the characters you could identify with. Its not often in a film where you can look at characters and think - I know someone like that. Its actually very accurate in the way it depicts the attitudes of twenty somethings who have been through a series of less than successful relationships. There are some great, and very funny scenes in this film, and the actors all put in great performances. Setting it in Seattle- the home of the Grunge band was a fantastic idea as well.
