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

Classic '90s romcom with great soundtrack; sex, cursing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Singles, a good-natured 1992 romantic comedy from Cameron Crowe, spotlights a group of 20-something single friends in Seattle. They're no longer kids. They haven't "settled in" yet. In fact, they're going through the pangs of maturation: out of school, trying to find their way in the work world, with their hearts in what hopefully will be lasting relationships. The movie is bursting with the now iconic musical sounds of 1992 Seattle (Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and more). Like the young people it depicts, the movie very much has sex on its mind. Expect frank language (e.g., "penis," "vagina," "intercourse"), candid questions and jokes ("Am I too small for you?"; a song title is "Touch Me, I'm Dick"), as well as scenes about "safe sex," breast implants, and an unexpected pregnancy. Characters kiss, embrace, undress, and engage in sexual foreplay. Partial nudity includes shots of bare, large female breasts. Scenes show social drinking (wine, beer), some drunkenness, and smoking. (Spoiler alert: A car accident injures a key player, who recovers.) Though this upbeat movie is very much a reflection of its time, the universality of emotions, hopes, and dreams and the relatability of its engaging characters keep it relevant and fun for older teens.
