I feel this is a little overrated but still a funny comedy. I would recommend it.

A well observed and witty comedy from the Nick Hornby/Mike Gayle school. I liked High Fidelity better, but it's still got some great lines ("I get older, but the girlfriends stay the same age!")

Swingers is an awesome minimalist comedy - about a group of friends who think that they're big time, when they really aren't. Although it's the film that spawned Vince Vaughn's career, this is a great ensemble cast with real comic timing, including pre-pounds Favreau, and Office Space's Ron Livingston.

I just now watched it again after about ten years. And, it's just awesome now as it ever was! I think that everyone knows at least one person who acts like they do.

The movie back then had a low budget of $250,000, but earned $5,000,000 worldwide according to the interview on the special features. The director and staff didn’t have enough sleep and was able to use Betamax, handheld...

Great comedy with dialog that is true to life

Swingers is the great transformation of two friends, Trent who has always been the ?Cool? guy and Mike who is the looser. Mike, John Favreau, is feeling desperate and pitiful after breaking up with his girlfriend of six year. Six months has passed and he is still obsessing over her and Trent, Vince Vaughn, is trying to get him to have fun being single by taking him to Vegas and picking up cute ?honeys?.

As the movie goes on their transformation becomes apparent: Trent may be cool on the surface but he is really the looser and Mike is the cool one. This transformation or realization is subtle that it is easy to miss if you haven?t been in either of their situations before. Unfortunately, most people have been in Mike?s situation before and it is easy to relate to him even if he is the ...
