Check this out -- a comedy for adults that has no nudity and no four letter words -- how refreshing!

Bridget Fonda (Single, White Female), Campbell Scott (Dying Young), Matt Dillon, Kyra Sedgwick and Sheila Kelly play diverse singles trying to find their soul mates in his funny, entertaining film.

It's divided into vignettes that focus on one of the couples, with the characters sometimes talking directly into the camera to expound on one or more of their deepest thoughts.

Much of the acton revolves around the Seattle club scene and the soundtrack is made up of rock music from local bands.

Fonda, a coffee house waitress, is crazy about Dillon, a rock musician, who mostly ignores her. In the meantime Scott, a romantic traffic engineer, woos Sedgwick, an ecology worker, whose romantic past includes some real losers. And Kelly is desperately looking for Mr. Right through video dating.

The dialogue is hip and funny and even though the characters are one-dimensional and self-centered, the actors who play them are appealing.

One thing about a large cast is you get bits and pieces of each character's background, but you still get enough to care about these young adults and root for them to find their true love.
