"Generation X neighbors share their bittersweet, intertwined stories of the single life in director Cameron Crowe's quirky, witty comedy set against the backdrop of Seattle's grunge music scene. The film boasts a killer soundtrack with cuts from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and more. The cast includes Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder (in a cameo)." courtesy of netflix

i totally only watched this movie because it was shot in Seattle, and I love it for that reason (its in 1992 so things are obviously different) but its very cool because they clearly actually shot the movie IN seattle, a lot of times for some reason they shoot in Vancouver (canada) and call it Seattle, the only thing is that it doesnt portray seattle all that appropriately, they have them walking through pioneer square and then sitting at Gas Works Parks...which is like a 20minute drive IF you go on the freeway and they make it seem like they walked there lol

the other thing is that the age group seems off, they are all like late 20's but they have this grunge rock seattle scene of someone in college maybe but then they all have professional jobs like urban planning (well despite the matt dillon charcter who is a musician bum lol)

it might only interest people from Seattle (so most of my blog friends out there may not like it - but if you're from seattle - you'll love it!)

  1. I am going to rent this movie again. For one thing i didn't know that Eddie Vedder had a cameo! (He was SO cute in 1992. Still is, but really more so with his long hair even though i know you don't like it. ) I remember really liking it when it first came out. Kylee, i am surprised you never saw this before because you are such a movie buff. But you were a little little girl when it came out so it makes sense.
