less than compelling leads

It's a group of single neighbors in Seattle. Linda Powell (Kyra Sedgwick) is happy to be living by herself after college. Steve Dunne (Campbell Scott) wants to concentrate on work to avoid the complication of love. They find each other nevertheless but struggle to commit. Janet Livermore (Bridget Fonda) is a 23 year old waitress saving money for school. Cliff Poncier (Matt Dillon) is her aloof musician boyfriend. Their friend Debbie Hunt (Sheila Kelley) does video dating.

Like other Cameron Crowe movies, the music is a big selling point and this taps into the emerging grunge scene in Seattle. However, the movie itself is a bit of a letdown. It tries to bring out the chaos of twentysomething love. It doesn't have great leads for the primary love story. It's strange that I always thought Bridget Fonda was the lead in the movie probably due to the poster. I remember her more than the primary leads Kyra Sedgwick and Campbell Scott. They don't have the superior A-list persona needed. It holds the movie back. The movie also is a step down from Crowe's other earlier works.

A well written, realistic take on dating in the 90s.

After the success of Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Say Anything, this movie looks like the next logical step for Cameron Crowe. Exploring the world of dating for 20 somethings in the 90s, this flick works really well by not going down the trodden part of establishing a drama and a solution, but rather letting the narrative flow be determined by the character's lives in a way that doesn't seem forced. With a nice cast of lovable and ratable characters, this makes for a good one time watch, with a nice sprinkling of humour and period pieces. The struggle during making a romcom often is to avoid being cheesy and yet manage to induce a happy feeling in the viewer, which this movie achieves.

Love in the '90s? Or something.

"Singles" plays out like a love letter to . . . pretty much everything early '90s: grunge, Seattle, Gen Xers, coffee, twenty-somethings grappling with love and responsibility, grunge. It's a movie that feels like it's trying to capture the zeitgeist - but I wasn't there, what do I know? But there's a cloying sweetness to most of this that's a complete turnoff. Maybe it really does boil down to "you had to be there", which would be why I can' relate to most of his (or these people). I did like hearing "State of Love and Trust", if only for 30 seconds. And there's an array of amusing cameos throughout.

But I'm not apart of this movie's audience.
