SinglesDirector: Cameron Crowe, Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick
Set amidst the burgeoning Seattle alternative music scene of the early '90s, Singles follows a group of twentysomethings as they try to find love and try to come to terms with their passage into adulthood. Arranged as an episodic comedy, the film follows a group of friends who live in the same apartment building and hang out at the same coffee shop. The central couple is Steve Dunne (Campbell Scott) and Linda Powell (Kyra Sedgwick), a pair who meet at an Alice In Chains concert and eventually fall in love. Singles follows the tumultuous relationship between Steve and Linda and their friendship with Janet Livermore (Bridget Fonda), who is trying to win the affection of grunge-rocker Cliff Poncier (Matt Dillon). The film also has a number of cameos, including actors Eric Stoltz, Tom Skerritt, Peter Horton, director Tim Burton and the film's author/director, Cameron Crowe. From the musical side of the fence, Singles features appearances by Sub Pop executive Bruce Pavitt, musicians Chris Cornell (Soundgarden), Pat DiNizio (Smithereens), Tad (Tad), and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament, and Stone Gossard, who play Dillon's backing band, Citizen Dick.

I saw this movie for the first time finally, and I thought it was pretty good. I love it's depiction of dating in the 90s. Matt Dillon's character was my absolute favorite..the grunged out rocker guy in it. I won't say anything about his role in the movie, but I got a good chuckle out of him. I enjoyed the cameos by certain 90s grunge bands too, such as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam. I went all through high school listening to bands like that, and still do to this day. I also that that Tim Burton's cameo in it as Brian was pretty cool. He has never been in anything before...even stuff he has directed/produced, at least not to my knowledge, so it was actually cool to see him on screen for a change. The man was only in it for maybe about 3 or 4 minutes, but it was still cool. Tim Burton is my favorite director/producer, and I have an entire collection dedicated to the guy, and even though he was only in this a few minutes, it still counted, so I stuck it in that collection. Moving on though, I thought this movie was rather enjoyable, and there is one part that is actually pretty sad too, but over all, it's a winner. If you like romantic comedies, give it a watch.
I absolutely loved this movie. It counts as one of my favorite of all time. It has some great lines and FUNNY situations. The fact that the characters talk to the camera makes you feel included in the group of friends. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
an early 90's film real cool movie with Bridget Fonda and Matt Dilllon they should make more movies like this real awesome movie the girl likes the guy thats a crush i like Singles
I watched this movie on tv because nothing else was on. I expected it to be bad but kept watching because I love the period and place it is taking place in. I realy like it It has a great sound track and cool apperances by people like Eddie Vedder. I sugest this movie to any one who likes movies about love but hates realy sappy things and also people who like grunge music and seatle in the early 90's.
