Consensus: Smart, funny, and engagingly scruffy, Singles is a clear-eyed look at modern romance that doubles as a credible grunge-era time capsule.

John Hartl
Seattle Times

This is one happy-ending romance that doesn't feel forced. You can't help getting into the spirit of it.

There is something new here, and very fresh.

The Dissolve

It's like a catalog of everything Crowe had to offer back in the early 1990s, from detailed evocations of place and time to the characters' pronouncements about popular culture.

New Yorker

This is romantic comedy of the wispiest kind, but the picture is generous, graceful, and consistently funny.

Crowe doesn't add much to the general discussion, but he's assembled an attractive cast and seems to have a genuine affection for the young people on the screen.

There's a genial untidiness about Singles, but it's unified by Crowe's affection for his characters, and by the terrific Paul Westerberg music track, which plays like a pulse-beat to these people's lives.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Crowe's movie is like a great record album: the songs connect, and the people connect, too.

People Magazine

Crowe's script relies for humor on such puerile notions as the supposed similarity between the words Spam and sperm, and such dullard's epigrams as "It's better to be the dumper than the dumpee."

Worth it for a great soundtrack and a terrific performance by Campbell Scott.

Yet another example of Cameron Crowe's penchant for putting the soundtrack above any depth or intelligent storytelling. Alright, but forgettable (much like… More
