Product Description


For anyone who wants to catch a glimpse of the Los Angeles "lounge" scene that was in vogue during the early and mid-1990s, here's the movie that virtually defined that brief but colorful nightlife milieu. As an added bonus, it just happens to be a very funny, observant story about love, loss, and male bonding among a group of friends who struggle to find decent jobs by day, and lurk through Hollywood's hottest nightclubs by night. A sort of latter-day Rat Pack, they include Mike (writer-actor Jon Favreau) and his closest buddy, Trent (Vince Vaughn), who are waiting for the big show-biz break that seems to be eluding them. Mike's twisted up about the girlfriend he left back East to pursue his going-nowhere standup comedy career, and Trent uses the word "money" as an adjective ("Man, we look totally money tonight") with such frequency that you may find yourself slipping into lounge-lizard mode after watching the movie. One of the most noteworthy indie-film success stories of the '90s, this time-capsule comedy seized its moment in the spotlight, launched several promising careers, and continues to maintain its lasting appeal. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best guy movies... July 8 2003
This movie is one of the best guy movies you will see, outside of "Diner". It is about guys that moved from New York to Hollywood and are trying to make it as actors. It portrays their struggles, and how they handle the un-written golden rule when you get a girls phone number at a club/bar and your friends tell you: "No, you must wait 3 days before you call her".... It is one of those movies that you can watch over and over even if you've seen it on cable like 30 times or so, it just gets better. The soundtrack is also good and makes you remember scenes from the movie. This movie is "money"... Chad Castorina

4.0 out of 5 stars Honest and funny March 30 2003
Mike (Jon Favreau) is a nice guy trying to succeed as a comedian/actor in LA and pining away for the girl he left back east. Trent (Vince Vaughn) is a slick, smooth player who lives for the club scene and has taken Mike under his wing. This film shows us a few days in the lives of these aspiring actors and their friends, all barely getting by while they wait for their big break.
Mike is the heart of the film. His painful, awkward attempts to forget long-time girlfriend Michele and move on with his life made me laugh and cringe. The support and empathy that he receives from his friends adds a dimension to those characters and rescues them from becoming one-dimensional party boys. Despite the inherent shallowness of the club scene that provides the milieu for this film, director Doug Liman and writer Favreau show where their heart really lies in the film's resolution: Mike's problems are not solved by acheiving success in the entertainment industry, but by making a breakthrough in his personal life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cmon March 14 2003
My original review for this film was too "edgy" so Amazon decided to shred it into clumps of pure idiotic rambling. Perhaps Amazon is as Tyrannical as Iraq because after writing a second review of the film they completely ignored it. Now, upon writing my third, I am ready to boycot this piece of love website. This film is about a really dull guy played by John Favreau. Even such a mundane guy has to act this dead. Vince Vaughn is like a snapple cap that repeats the same snapple fact, "You're so money and you don't even know it." This is not something to base a movie around. There are two other characters, but I don't remember who played them or what significance they played. I remember it's about guys more pathetic than even myself and women too hot to talk to these guys (even the strippers) find them attractive. The ending is like a cliche from a saturday night live episode. I have the feeling, similar too my viewing of this film, you will see only a small and insignificant apendage of this review. I hope Amazon falls with the rest of the economy. Peace and return safely.

I grow weary of the BIG-200-Million-Dollar-Movie-Productions by Stephen Spielburg, Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise and the like. This movie is different. Swingers is "Money" because it didn't cost much money to produce - $250,000!! Do you know how to tell if a movie is great? Watch it a second and a third and a fourth time! Does it still hold your interest? "Swingers" keeps getting better the more times you view it! The movie surprises you beause it's real. I found myself laughing spontaneously at stuff I had missed the previous viewing. Jon Favreau (Mike)is getting over a relationship and Vince Vaughn (Trent) and the boys are his emotional support in the gritty-swinging city of LA. The acting by Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau is superb. The supporting cast is awesome. I especially liked "Sue" played by Patrick Van Horn. The Swing Band scene in the movie started a world-wide trend. The Swing band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, sold a million records because of this movie. Swing night clubs started popping up all over the world and the U.S.. The movie felt like it was filmed with a hidden camera....absolutely "Money"! This movie is "Money Baby!" "I'm telling you it's Money!!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Vegas Baby, Vegas! Jan. 15 2003
By A Customer
How can I begin to comment on how amaizing this film is. I've never written a review on amazon[.com] before but if there was ever a time to do it, it was for Swingers. This movie tells it how live realy is. From the dating scene, to struggling actors in LA, and the LA party scene, its got it all. What's so incredible about this movie is that it only cost $250,000 to make and was shot in under a month. The chemistry between actors is so perfect that only a good group of friends could of pulled off. All the improvised lines and random unprectible actions of the actors makes you wanting more..which is why Made is another film i'd highly reccomend. Give this movie a shot and I can guarentee you will be calling women, "beautiful babies" within no time! This movie is totally easy to relate to and at the same time, very entertaining. As is the long lasting apeal. I can watch this movie over and over. Definatley check out the special edition version to hear the commentaries and special features. Enjoy!

Swingers is one of those movies that just seems to strike a cord with everyone. No matter who you are or where you from, you can probably relate to these charecters.
The movie itself is about five young, aspiring actors who are trying to make it out in Hollywood. The main charecter(played by Favreau)recently moved out onto the west coast and seems to be having a hard time dealing with the fact he just can't get a decent job in show buisness. Not only that he just broke up with his girlfriend back in New York and that doesn't help matters much either. Bring in his friend Trent(Vaughn)to get him out on the town to help him get on with his life and you have a movie about the adventures of five 20 something guys in Los Angeles.
Definitly an anti-MTV generation type movie, this movie really exposes the complications between relationships not only between lovers, but between friends. It showcases the short lived swing craze of the middle 90's that has died way too fast. Also a diverse soundtrack including Big Bad voodoo Daddies, George Jones and Bobby Darin.
You'll probably find the special edition DVD is chocked full of fun extras including two commentaries in which hardcore fans of Swingers have been watering at the mouth for what seems like an eternity.
