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

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."

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.
Chris Heath
Empire Magazine

Intelligent and witty ensemble rom-com for the grunge generation.

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.

The movie will challenge some audiences simply because it is not a 1-2-3 progression of character and plot.

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

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