Swingers

In appreciation of S|aney's Dean Martin thread...why is Swingers such an underappreciated movie? What maybe impressed me more than anything was that Jon Favreau--the stoned idiot from "PCU"--actually wrote the screenplay, and it's a *great* story. Particularly an important film for the ladies to watch. It uncovers all the guys' dirty secrets.

Vince Vaughan and Jon Favreau are both great in their own right, but you are correct--together they're rivaled perhaps only by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in Dogma. Or by Jay and Silent Bob in general.

Haven't seen Made yet. How was it?

Oh, for any Office Space fans--Ron Livingston (Peter) is also in Swingers, as an unemployed actor.

made is pretty good - i'd recommend seeing it if for no other reason that to laugh at the vince/jon act. vince's character is such a moron it's unbelievable. he's a crack up. even my mom thought he was hilarious. and hey, p. diddy is in it so you can't beat that.

Just watched it again last night with a lady friend of mine. She had never seen it and she loved it. She laughed all the way through. I've seen it five times and it still makes me laugh.
