Product Description

Bridget Fonda, Matt Dillon, Kyra Sedgwick and Campbell Scott in an "exuberant romantic comedy" (Rolling Stone) about Seattle twenty-somethings searching for-and running from-love. Bonus: Two outake scenes. Year: 1992

Amazon.com

A romantic comedy set against the background of the Seattle grunge scene of the late '80s and early '90s, Singles contains music and/or cameo appearances by the music groups who defined the movement, including Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, Mother Love Bone, and others. (For a definitive documentary treatment of the same pop-music phenomenon, see Hype!) The plot is really a series of interconnected stories about various Seattle singles--some of who are part of a couple, at least temporarily. Matt Dillon plays a longhaired rocker whose girlfriend (Bridget Fonda) is considering breast enlargement surgery. As Steve and Linda, Campbell Scott and Kyra Sedgwick are going through the awkward stages of a relationship--that point when quirky little traits that may have seemed attractive initially can evolve into major annoyances. It's a funny, sweet, enjoyable picture that captures some of the flavor of the Northwest, where writer-director Cameron Crowe relocated after marrying Seattle native Nancy Wilson of Heart. (The Wilson sisters also appear on the soundtrack as members of The Lovemongers.) Ten years before the release of Singles in 1992, Crowe was the "boy wonder" reporter for Rolling Stone magazine who went back to high school in order to research and write what became Fast Times at Ridgemont High. His other work includes Jerry Maguire (1996) and Say Anything (1989). --Jim Emerson

One of the best movies I've seen!

One thing I really loved about this movie was the way Cameron Crowe made the characters so believable.

The movie is well acted, Fonda is hot; Dillon is very cool and funny.

This film genuinely surprised me when I first saw it in theaters in 1992. For me, Bridget Fonda was the main draw at the time, as she received top billing and was on the movie posters with Matt Dillion. It felt like a bait and switch, because the film focuses more on Campbell Scott and Kyra Sedgwick's relationship, even though they aren't featured on the poster. That's no biggie, because I enjoyed their storyline much more than Bridget and Matt's...but I bet Campbell and Kyra weren't happy to be excluded on the poster/DVD cover.

This film has it all...great music suitable to the period (grunge/alternative), fantastic use of place (Seattle in a starring role), interesting and quirky characters, and true to life portrayal of young people in their twenties negotiating through life as they find their true passions. I especially loved Campbell Scott's performance and he is the true star of this film. His job is working on creating a "Super Train" to get Seattlites out of their cars and onboard for their commute, because he believes that "if you give them great coffee and great music, they'll ride." His girlfriend, played by Kyra Sedgwick, has her pulse on the masses, by telling him, "I still love my car, though." She's an environmentalist who drives an old gass guzzling clunker of an automobile, which Campbell pokes fun at after a lunch date. Its a joy to watch their relationship grow from initial doubts to lover games about how soon after a date one should call to other challenges that crop up. I especially love the scene when Linda (Sedgwick) peruses Steve's (Campbell Scott) record albums and gets nostalgic about her college days. That scene epitomizes the exciting "getting to know you" stage of dating and rings absolutely true.

I was in college in '92, when the grunge scene really took off, and this movie brings those days back perfectly. Somehow it doesn't seem dated either, like many 80s movies do. It's probably because of the engaging storyline and familar, "hey-that-could-be-me" characters that Cameron Crowe is known for. The Campbell Scott character, Steve (and by the way, where IS Campbell Scott these days?) is like so many of us - obsessed with work, trying to make sense of the whole dating and relationship scene, wishing for simplicity. Bridget Fonda's Janet is anyone who ever woke up from codependency and realized his/her own self-worth. And Kyra Sedgwick's Linda is everyone who ever got their heart broken and put up barriers to protect themselves, only to find that not all people are as bad as you think. Great cast, great setting, incredible soundtrack. The DVD adds some deleted scenes which I think are also on the VHS version, as well as cast bios. Check out cameos by Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam (the musicians in Matt Dillon's band), Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, and a performance by Alice in Chains. And don't miss Jeremy Piven as the checkout guy, and the eldest son from "Malcolm in the Middle" as the young Steve.

Do you ever get the feeling that you are the only person in the world who is single? When you turn on the television, walk through the mall, or simply go out with friends, do you get depressed about being the only person without a significant other? If so, this movie is for you. If not, this movie is still for you.
Singles is a movies about a handful of post-college twenty somethings mapping out and searching for romance and intimacy against the post-industrial grunge backdrop of Seattle. Don't worry, it's not a film about beautiful, angst-ridden people who complain about everything. In fact, one of the best things about this movie is that these people aren't overly cool. They aren't malice-filled, perfect-looking, spoiled, or particularly trendy. The beauty of these characters is that they are real. They are vulnerable, insecure, modest, humorous, and idiosyncratic. While watching this movie, you never get the sense of feeling threatened by these characters or feeling any hate toward them (even in spite of their faults). Instead, through their dating successes and failures, through their small triumphs and heartaches, through their good and bad behavior, you continually root for these people, you feel what they feel, and you get a sense that out there, somewhere are real people who are single, and who must deal with the pleasure and pain of being single.
I think this is Cameron Crowe's third film (1st-Fast Times at Ridgemont High 2nd-Say Anything 4th-Jerry McGuire). As are all his films, this film is very funny, very sympathetic, and very humane. What makes this film so good and so watchable is the fact that its humor and its story are derived from the way real, ordinary people conduct their day to day lives.

I am not what you would call a "movie junkie". I don't watch movies just for the sake of watching something. I just can't sit down and watch mindless television. But there are some movies that I have seen several times and would watch over and over again. Singles is one of these movies. It just makes me feel good. I feel great after watching Singles. I'm not sure how much of a sentimental element is involved with my love of this movie (I lived in the Seattle area when the grunge scene and the movie broke out). All I know is that it helped me get through some of my tough single times like nothing else has. I loved the soundtrack, the setting, and the story line. The cast was perfect. This had a potential to turn off a lot of people by being "too cool" but it didn't. The characters were grounded, not over the top. As in all of Cameron Crowes movies, there are some lines that I'm sure I will always quote. It's kind of a shared secret amongst friends. This film really hasn't received the recognition it deserves, but that's okay. I think maybe I wouldn't like it as much if everyone else did. If you haven't seen it, by God spend a buck or two and rent it will you! One last thing: what the Hell happened to Campbell Scott? I was sure his career would take off.
