Singles is one of my ...By a customer from PENARTH , 23 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Singles is one of my all time favourite movies. Based around the Seattle grunge scene in 1992, Cameron Crowe's second film in the director's chair is one of the most under-rated love stories of the 90s. Singles tells the story of four main characters (played by Bridget Fonda (looking gorgeous, incidentally :)), Matt Dillon, Kyra Sedgewick and Campbell Scott) who have all been looking for love but have so far been unlucky. As the very likeable characters live out their more-off-than-on relationships, they are accompanied by a superb contemporary soundtrack including bands such as Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Mudhoney. Ex-music journalist Crowe really knows his stuff and chose the perfect songs for the perfect moments (something he would do again years later in Almost Famous). Singles is often sad but always funny. The dating agency video is one of the funniest moments of the movie and Fonda is a pleasure to watch throughout. If you liked Crowe's later movies (Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky) you will definitely love Singles but if you have never seen the movie before nor any Cameron Crowe, you should definitely give it a try. It's the pre-cursor to Friends and late-90s coffee house sitcoms and should have been a much bigger hit. Fans of the TV series Alias should also look out for a young Victor Garber in an uncredited, but very funny cameo role.

Love this filmBy HannahCl (2 reviews) from Leyburn , 03 Aug 2009Hadn't seen this film for ages, really excited to see it. Wasn't quite as good as I remember, but really enjoyed it. Great music, definately took me back to my youth.
absolutely brillBy a customer from Barnet , 05 Mar 2009I have always loved this film. I used to have it on dvd and watched it so many times I wore it out!!! I was worried I would be dissappointed revisiting it as an older adult but I still love it. Matt Dillon is hilarious. A great comedy to relive my youth and to rock out to!

SinglesBy a customer from Reading, Berkshire , 01 Oct 2007Good film - worth watching.
no no noBy a customer from Essex , 09 Mar 2007I was so disappointed by this film. HAving loved every other film that Cameron Crowe has directed - Say Anything, Almost Famous, Jerry Macguire, Elizabethtown etc I was full of anticipation. But this film is so slow and by the time you realise who the main characters are you really don't care anymore. Unless you have a long evening to fill and don't want to watch paint dry don't rent it!
