I was hopeful about this film, but it was dull, dull, dull all the way. By the halfway point I was rolling my eyes and waiting for it to end. The most interesting parts of the film were the brief cameos from various Seattle musicians and music industry leaders, and these were much too short. Eddie Vedder has more charisma in his 1 minute on screen than the actor playing a rock musician who takes up ten times that much screen time. If Cameron Crowe wanted to create something interesting about Seattle during this heady period in music history, he should have let the musicians just be themselves.

It's also funny that in the universe this movie inhabits, Nirvana apparently doesn't exist. I'm guessing this is because the movie makers contacted Nirvana and Kurt laughed and said "hell no", and good for him, because this movie sucks. It could have been fun as a short, but for a full-length film it nearly put me to sleep. And all the actors look and vibe like '80s hangovers, which again shows that the filmmaker was not "hep" to the happening scene of the time. I did enjoy seeing the beautiful city of Seattle on display throughout the film, so that helps boost my rating slightly.

Uninspiring romances take up center stage while the film teasingly hints at something fascinating going on in the background (the Seattle music scene of the early '90s). Very disappointing.

2/5 stars.

Singles Movie

"Some might say this movie is a little slow, but I love it. If you are at all interested in bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden or Alice In Chains - you should see this since many of the band members either perform or have cameos. Good balance of funny and dramatic moments. I enjoy the soundtrack for this movie as well."
Still a good movie

"This is what being single is all about. The angst, the desperation. Everybody else has a partner. You somewhat belong but you still don't....
The music is great too. If you like bands like Sound Garden or Perl Jam, this is for you..."

"It is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Although it was made a long time ago, it is still relevant. Campbell Scott and Kyra Sedgwick were excellent in their roles. Their feelings for each other were very touching. Bridget Fonda and Matt Dillon were also good. I'd definitely give it 5 stars. You won't be disappointed."
