This came out in 1992 (around the time I turned 17), but I didn't see it until 2020. So yeah, that was a long wait. I ended up only slightly liking it, but I can't help wondering what I would have thought of it if I'd actually seen it in the 90s. Certainly it wouldn't have been anything like my experience of the decade, but I think it still fits my idea of the decade, to some extent. Anyway, I found some bits of it amusing, and there was good music, and the characters were okay. (My favorite was Janet.)

So, there's this guy named Steve (Campbell Scott), who lives in an apartment complex where all the neighbors are friends. That includes Janet (Bridget Fonda), who is dating a grunge singer named Cliff (Matt Dillon). There's also a woman named Debbie (Sheila Kelley), who's trying to find a boyfriend through a video dating service. And maybe there are a few characters of lesser importance. But the first person we actually meet in the movie is Linda (Kyra Sedgwick), who meets a guy she starts dating for a little while, until she discovers he lied to her about something, so that relationship comes to a screeching halt. However, she later meets Steve, and they gradually develop a relationship. And... I don't really know what else to tell you. Stuff happens with all the characters, who have their ups and downs. And I just couldn't manage to care a great deal about any of it. But at least I cared a little.
