Product Description

Product Description

Swingers

Amazon.ca

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

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

Easily one of my favorite movies of all time (prolly in my personal top 3), "Swingers" is a must-see for any male, period. For any female too, for that matter. With unceasingly witty banter and easily relatable situations, how can you go wrong.
For guys, this is finally a movie that would serve as the male-equivalent to a "chick-flick" in showing the rules on dating. No movie before has done this so well, and I doubt any movie after it would provide the dead-on accuracy portrayed so masterfully and comedically here.
For the ladies, here is the perfect movie to see the male prospective on dating as well as what goes on in our vast minds. And I know plenty of women who'd drool over Vince Vaughn, so here you go.
What I found so amazing is the fact that each of these characters can be likened to any group of friends in reality, with Mikey (John Favreau) being the underconfident nice guy who gets turned down repeatedly for being a nice guy, Trent (Vaughn), the player who gets the ladies at the drop of a hat, and Rob (Ron Livingston) and Sue (Patrick van Horn) as the "wing-men" who (almost) always have your back.
So if you're looking for the best comedy of the 90's with catch phrases that will last through the new millenium, pick this one up, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

This film is completely awesome on a hundred different levels.
First are perhaps the actors themselves. Vaughn and Favreau are amazing together. They achieve a relationship in this film like nothing else (not even in the later movie "Made" or in their not-entirely-related work in "Rudy"). In addition, my good friend Alex Desert (from the incredible ska band HEPCAT and the seemingly forgotten Fox TV show "The Heights"), plays a fantastic role as well.
Second is the subject matter. Who hasn't gone through this? Who hasn't had the rug pulled from under them (relationship wise), to be left to start all over again...initially a shell of your former self, but then growing to love and trust once more. Much like any Sinatra recording, this movie lets you know, "fella, you ain't in this alone." There are so many scenes that speak to this so beautifully, that it almost escapes description. One would be when Mikey is checking his answering-machine and it starts talking back to him. Another would be when Mikey finally sees the girl as the "bunny rabbit." I could go on and on, but I don't want to give too much away.
Yet another basis is direction and cinematography. There is a ton of film-insider humor here that gets missed if you don't pay attention. The Quentin reference..."Everyone rips off everyone else"...with the immediate slow-motion walking scene (that rips off "Resevoir Dogs") is priceless. Very funny, yet not in your face.
I've gone through 4 VHS copies of this, and I now have it on DVD. It is definitely something you will enjoy, and it never ceases to disappoint...despite REPEATED viewings. Get it asap!

I'll spare you the "money" quotes and resolve to simply say this is a good movie. I'd heard lots of good word-of-mouth about this movie, but never had the opportunity to see it. Now that I have, I find myself equally pleased and disappointed with this film--perhaps to a contradictory degree. On the one hand, I look to the extent of "swinger" bedlam that this could have displayed and feel like the filmmakers missed a beautiful opportunity. On the other hand, I can't help but applaud them for NOT succumbing to the stereotype I have appropriated to it.
Regardless, from a comedic standpoint this film achieves what it set out to do. I wish that the script had detailed the lives of the other characters a little more intensely. We find the idiosyncrasies of John Favreau?s and Vince Vaughn's character, but the other's seem rather stale, not to mention the fact that they could have proved to have very interesting back stories. Otherwise, though, this film is very, very fun--sometimes digressing into some extreme examples of humor that don't perfectly flow with the remainder of the film (the answering machine), but it never depletes from the experience. Most of the time, the film stays true to the slacker, party boys of LA, and all the sloth, Sega Ice Hockey, and TV pilot auditions in between the parties.
One aspect that cannot be praised highly enough, however, is that this film does not fall pray to the bane of most slacker comedies: a sappy, melodramatic climax. Swingers shuns this, and for that I praise it. When John Favreau's character does finally come around, and the audience witnesses his development and the catalysts that spur it, there is never a feeling of hokey, sentimentalism--and that, perhaps, is why this film has achieved such cult status.
