Original, Fresh, and ever so Stylish for 1996
Dec 12, 2008
lukewood3497 - yahoo.com
This is a movie that defined an entirely new genre of comedy with the introduction of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau. It had a heavy influence on the entire 20-something nightlife crowd of the late 90's, the bar-hopping way of life,... Full review

An intelligent comedy for the 20-something crowd of the mid-nineties! Swingers emotes the hip trend of swing dance, big band music and punk rock for several 20-somethings trying to find their way in Los Angeles. As each struggles with adapting to... Full review

Bad acting, too many 'babies' and 'money' to stomach. Worst thing? Favreau is the second coming of Woody Allen's onscreen male yenta! Rewind and take it back!... Full review

And also very funny! I got very into these characters; they were full of personality and very sexy too. I found it very entertaining to watch these stumbling, single guys make their rounds in Hollywood, and anyone would! I liked Vince... Full review

And when I think over my most favorite embarrassing romantic moments in movies, right at the top of the list is this scene from Swingers . It's almost impossible to promote just one scene from this film when there are so many memorable moments, but this one just hits you where it hurts -- and hopefully some of you will watch this and remember to wait two days ... ...

It has an energetic, snappy script, punctuated by countless great lines, a strong ensemble cast, while Doug Liman's direction is fresh and alive. The mood and characters are so well established, it is easy and enjoyable to jump in head first and coast along with this bunch of guys, full of egos, insecurities and sexist jokes: "She's business - big butt, can't fly coach. ...

Which is not to say that, given the right frame of mind, you can't enjoy Swingers for what it is: a movie that's as cool as the other side of the pillow. To its credit, Swingers is so pumped full of flash and style it doesn't care if its story is thin as watered-down gin. ... Full Review

While the film is great entertainment for the fans of Swingers, it may have a difficult time expanding to a wider audience. Like Swingers there are some terrible transition shots mixed in with the spectacular. ... Full Review

Consequently, not only are its characters more realistic and sympathetic than Quentin Tarantino's, but "Swingers" is much more good-natured and even likable than anything he has ever done. Instead, this group of aspiring, 20-something actors in Southern California is either more likely to whine about ex-girlfriends, crow about their success with the opposite sex or fight it out over a video game than "cap" (shoot) someone. ...
