Singles may aspire to be a Big Chill from Seattle, but it is really a fizzled St. Elmo's Fire with rowdier music.
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 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.
Mr. Crowe has an exceptional ability to enjoy such characters without a trace of condescension.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A diverting collection of interwoven vignettes.
Fonda is absolutely charming and sweetly resilient as her new and old relationships overlap.
The movie will challenge some audiences simply because it is not a 1-2-3 progression of character and plot.
| Original Score: 3/4
A disarmingly sweet-spirited comedy written and directed by Cameron Crowe.
| Original Score: B+
