Director Cameron Crowe once confided to us that the studio delayed releasing his 1992 picture by almost a year to better capitalize on our nascent grunge rock scene—making his sweetly observant music/rom-com seem more opportunistic than prophetic. It remains a deserved Seattle favorite, even if the nifty soundtrack seems dated and most of the local music figures who made cameos have long receded from the charts. Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, and Matt Dillon star in the roundelay. O for those slacker days of yore! Call for showtimes. (PG-13) BRIAN MILLER
