Singles
« on: May 22, 2010, 09:59:06 PM »
Being another notorious "romantic comedy" (read: chick flick) notwithstanding, Singles' offers plenty of material and actors worth riffing to death...presuming one has a bit of knowledge (or enough worth riffing on) on the Seattle Grunge scene. Singles has everything going wrong. Monologuing, fourth wall demolishing main characters convinced we, the audience, give a shit about their trivial romances, Kyra Sedgwick trying to be attractive (and failing hard), Bridget Fonda trying to care. Everything, I tells ya!

I haven't watched this is quite awhile... but I had somewhat fond memories of it based on the initial viewing back in the early 90s... well, I suppose tastes change over time... as I don't know what I saw with this one after watching it 4-5 years ago. Along with "Reality Bites", two movies that I enjoyed as a 19 / 20 year old in the early nineties that did not age well at all.

I'd have to watch it again, which probably ain't gonna happen, to see how well it could work as a riff subject... While I don't really think the fuel is there... couldn't say for sure.
