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

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

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.

There is something new here, and very fresh.

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.

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

Infernally precious.

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."

Crowe's greatest strength is the way he focuses on those smaller moments in life that are rarely reflected in movies.

No matter your age, you will warm to the young men and women in Singles who are striving to find their balance in the pleasant ambiance of Seattle.

Total Film

Nobody's saying it's perfect, but it is hugely entertaining, a warm-yet-honest look at sex, love and relationships set against the growth of Seattle's grunge scene.

Singles may aspire to be a Big Chill from Seattle, but it is really a fizzled St. Elmo's Fire with rowdier music.

Film4

The film is stirred with humour and affection while achieving a pleasing blend of the city's café and grunge cultures.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Funny and well-observed and, most notably, plays to its audience's intelligence rather than its libido.

So lightweight that you're likely to start forgetting it before it's even over.

There's no shortage of tender moments in this comedy, and former rock journalist Cameron Crowe cleverly transforms 'real' problems into crackerjack material.

Crowe has created a smart, rumpled world where real people relate to each other about real feelings, using real words.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Crowe suffuses the film with tender humour and affection as the characters, most of them living in the same apartment block, swap stories, ponder sexual come-ons where none exist, and remain resolute in the face of emotional horrors.

Watch for endless cameos and stars who would later go on to much higher heights.
