@16 - YES.
@Everyone else - That movie is a touchstone for a lot of people I know who were teens in small town Washington in the mid-90s. We aspired to live Interesting Lives in The City. Singles was our 1990s Washington-specific aspirational version of Baby Boomer-nostalgia about The Big Chill.
Does that make sense?

commented on How to Make SLU an Affordable Neighborhood
@43 - I am trying to be clear in my support of subsidized housing while keeping the reality of the current urban housing situation front and center. Single 20-somethings living alone is the fantasy - a couple with a newborn or a small child living in a studio is the reality. And neither can actually afford the studio apartment in SLU.
