Synopsis: In the 'Grunge-era" Seattle a group of twenty somethings try figure out relationships and love.

Fact: The film is riddled with cameos that include the director himself as well as Eddie Vedder, Tim Burton, Eric Stoltz, Chris Cornell and Paul Giamatti.

Trivia: Alice in Chains is the band playing in the bar.

Movie Mistake: The 'Expect the Best' clerk calls Debbie her name before she reveals it to him.

My Take: It's a fun movie that just reminds everyone that meeting that special someone is a ton of work. I will say that, because of this movie, I will bless anyone who sneezes. Call it hedging my bets!

I've only seen this once, a couple of years after it came out but remember enjoying it, even more than I enjoyed Crowe's previous movie "Say Anything..." which is pretty darn good. In a way it's a shame that Cameron Crowe edged towards mainstream as his earlier movies real spoke to a generation, much more than his later ones.

I still think Almost Famous is one of my favorites.
