(1992)

Love is a game. Easy to start. Hard to finish.

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 interrelated 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.

**_Quirky romcom with the backdrop of the early 90's grunge scene_**
Two 20-something couples and others explore life & love during the advent of the grunge scene in Seattle. Dillon's character is the only one musically involved in the scene, as the vocalist of the band Citizen Dick. The two couples are played by Campbell Scott & Kyra Sedgwick and Bridget Fonda & Dillon while other cast members include Sheila Kelley and Bill Pullman.
Although "Singles" was released in September 1992 it was actually shot in March-May, 1991, a full half a year _before_ the explosion of grunge music with the success of Nirvana's NEVERMIND. Writer/director Cameron Crowe originally wrote the script in 1984 with the setting of Phoenix in mind but rewrote it six years later inspired by how the burgeoning Seattle grunge community came together after the death of Mother Love Bone's singer in March, 1990.
The flick is a little reminiscent of 2001's "Rock Star," but the latter is better IMHO simply because it focuses more on the music scene than romantic relationships. Not to mention the style of music in "Rock Star" is metal, which is preferable in my book (although Alice In Chain's song performed live for this movie definitely smacks of metal).
The very title "Singles" tips off that this is a romcom focusing on dating. As such, if you favor dating movies you'll probably like "Singles," even if you don't particularly like grunge. Speaking of which, the soundtrack includes cuts by grunge luminaries Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Alice In Chains, Mother Love Bone, Jane's Addiction, Smashing Pumpkins and Screaming Trees, amongst others. In fact, quite a few grunge stars have cameos, such as Chris Cornell, Layne Staley, Eddie Vedder and Kim Thayil.
The film runs 1 hour, 39 minutes, and was shot in Seattle.
