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

Quotes

Linda Powell: So, who are your neighbors?
Steve Dunne: That's Bailey, right there. He's a maitre d', he keeps us all in free meals. On the corner there, that's Debbie Hunt. She actually consumes men instead of food. And that is Cliff. He delivers flowers, has four jobs, works in the coffee shop around the corner. Upstairs is Janet Livermore. She works there too. She's saving up for architecture schooI. Cliff and Janet... That's it.
Linda Powell: You sound like me, talking about my family.

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 »

Smart dialogue, believable characters
8 April 2000 | by Meredith-7See all my reviews

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.
