LOL. Works only if you imagine it as a Prezbo origin story. I like to think that he woke up one morning, took a look at himself and his awful hat and thought, "That's it! Time to start over. But where?" Threw a dart at an atlas and hit Baltimore. Hopped a Greyhound the next day. Prez aside, not much good here. Don't need to hear any of these bands ever again. Cobain, as usual, cooler than the room -- knows when to say "no" and wisely sits this out. Campbell Scott is a homeless man's Paul Rudd.

The music was good. The story itself was blah. An interesting point made by my date... Kyra Sedgwick looked like she could have played Scott's mom instead of his girlfriend. There were small parts that were good, but I just didn't find it to be as interesting as I thought I would. Had a hard time believing Matt Dillon as the rocker dude. I do now have a new sneezing joke to use on my friends for the future, so that's cool.

a snapshot of the generation x, with fitting music to boot. i feel that over time it will prove more historically important than it is a good film, sad because i really enjoyed it.

All the overcast shots in this film annoyingly remind me why I hate living in Seattle... but that's my own personal bias. :) It makes sense why grunge rose to power here. The weather is frustrating af and it makes sense to transcend the repressive weather through angst (which itself is a more repressed form of anger). ANYWAY, I enjoy movies like these from an anthropological standpoint... I get a glimpse of how society was like then--without the internet and smart phones. I am kinda envious.

I've got a soft spot for this one--whether it's the great music, the absolutely ridiculous Matt Dillon character, or the enjoyable Pearl Jam cameo, it still gets to me after all these years. This is not high art by any stretch. However, its earnestness about the need for trust to make relationships work, combined with the dimwitted Dillon character, make this a most enjoyable watch every time it's on.

Affable enough, but frustratingly juddering in its pacing - this may have worked better as an anthology film rather than an intertwined narrative, though that may have pointed up how thin most of these stories and characters are; saved for the most part by Scott and Sedgwick, who form a strong, poignant spine on which to load the rest of the material, but none of the other threads go anywhere interesting - Fonda and Dillon almost strike gold, but their relationship seems to lack a punchline.

Everybody in my high school loved this movie, except me. I found it to be quite shallow and pedantic.

I blame this movie for the existence of Friends. The one thing the 90's didn't have a dearth of was movies that thought that they were edgy and appealing to young people, but were just shallow and annoying. I'm looking at you, Reality Bites...

Enjoyable enough romantic comedy raised up by a killer soundtrack.

There was good, even hilarious scenes and I laughed a lot in them. But the main plot and stories themselves were pretty draggy and overall not that interesting.

Good pretty much just for the dating videos and a couple other decent gags. An easy watch without much substance. Killer soundtrack of course.

Solid nineties comedy. A time capsule to the lame grunge era.

Not Cameron Crowe's best work considering the potential he would show later in his career and even the potential he already had shown in Say Anything. This film is fresh, and contains some of Crowe's trademark qualities but it just feels as though something is missing.

Great to see a movie about people and real lives, but I was left with a feeling of little consequence.

My favourite film, although I acknowledge it's not for everyone. Light on plot, heavy on character-driven dialogue. It's like a chick flick for guys, but the soundtrack and Seattle locale make it a classic for me.

"Well, I think 'Touch Me, I'm Dick,' in essence, speaks for itself, you know. I think that, you know, that's basically what the song is, um... about... is about, you know..." At least Crowe has sense enough to concentrate on Campbell Scott and Kyra Sedgwick, the only two people in the movie even remotely resembling functional adults. Jeremy Piven provides the only hilarious moment, though Matt Dillon trying to pretend he's that dumb and self-involved is fairly funny.

Forced myself to watch the first half hour. Soundtrack was awesome but actors and dialogue were pathetic.

One of those movies that is probably more enjoyable if it is your generation, rather than the generation right before you. However, the excellent music performances are a big plus.

great music, love the era... but disappointingly this movie sucks. It's boring, and you never seem to care or have any sympathy for the characters. Shallow as hell.

This Seattle-based, soundtrack-driven package of interwowen lightweight love stories is a fine evidence of Crowe's main skills and failures: he's knows how to deal with his male characters, their anguishes, desires and fears -- like Alex Payne --, but gets lost when he needs to put these things together in a decent and well-organized story -- unlike Alex Payne.

This movie spoke to me at the time but now I can see it was just a pretty shallow romcom pushed out by Warner's to cash in on the grunge trend. See if you can spot Paul Giamatti in a funny bit part.

I dislike this movie because I dislike the characters. It's a reasonably well done movie, but the characters and their silly little problems fail to interest me.

Mostly pointless coming of age film about young love. A few very nice scenes with a lovely young Bridget Fonda. Matt Dillon was mostly annoying. Kyra Sedgwick was somewhat interesting and brief cameo by Ally Walker.

Okay, i'm done with these '90s romcoms already... I mean it's Cameron Crowe so i knew it would be bad, but this isn't even good-bad. The thing is that Crowe's worldview is so completely conventional that it makes all the strained "alternative" stuff seem completely ridiculous. Oh well, i guess it's back to musicals for me...
