Synopsis: Grungy Seattle 20-somethings experience the pleasures and pains of romance as they take in lots and lots of Alice in Chains and Soundgarden.
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Romance in the ‘90s is where you find it. But what do you do to make it happen in today’s hilarious mixed-up Singles world?”
What Did I Learn?: The TV show “Friends” was a total rip-off of this movie.
You Might Like This Movie If: You want to remember how Generation Xers met each other in the era before Internet dating.
Really?: Let me see...there’s the environmental activist who owns a 1970s gas guzzler and says: “I love my car”; the rocker with more jobs than Grover, and who never seems to smoke a joint; and the coffee shop waitress who has the money for boob enhancement surgery as she’s struggling to pay off her student loans.
Rating: Singles is an enjoyable stroll down Memory Lane (funny how the future seemed much more limitless back then, but maybe I’m just getting older), but the characters - and dating itself - are timeless. 7.5/10 stars.
