"Just for tonight, no commitments, no breakfast...Do you come here a lot?...So, you wanna take your clothes off, or what?...You think that just because someone's not pretty, she's not worth anything...You're a real superficial jerk!...Was it good for you?...Yeah, pretty good...I'll call you." Shelley (The King of Comedy) Hack, Mare (Amber Waves) Winningham, Christine (Swing Shift) Lahti, Tony (Who's the Boss?) Danza and Paul Michael (Starsky and Hutch) Glaser utter all the lines you really do, sadly, hear in meet markets and the places that singles go afterward. Single Bars the movie is not as cliché-ridden as its premise. With a fine TV cast, it tells the stories of lots of lonely people with more caring than you'll find in a barful of sensitive men.
