Grab your hacky sack filled with coffee beans and don’t forget your flannel diaphragm, we’re going back the Nineties!  When you’ve hit a new low, there’s always room for Cameron Crowe. 1992’s Singles stars Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon and a Monarch Liftmaster Model C garage door opener.
This movie is about a group of twenty-something Gen Xers who all live in a singles condominium at Ground Zero of the Great Grunge Contagion of the late Twentieth Century.  Bridget is a Typhoid Mary, doing everything she can to infect her uninterested boyfriend Matt Dillon with her spastic cuteness.  Kyra Sedgwick is an environmentalist who just wants to have a man and possess complete control over her own garage door. We have electronic watches that can store phone numbers, some Alices in Chains, some Pearls that Jam, a miscarried baby, a half-eaten chili-dog, Tim Burton directing a dating video and a whole lotta dyslexic hearts.  If you’re in the mood for a series of half-sketches that meander through the notion of what its like to be white and drink coffee while breaking the fourth wall, then pop open the Pringles, cuz Singles is for you!
