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

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 …
