Classic Thoughts: Swingers

Swingers was one of the first major films for Vince Vaughn and John Favreau and it is actually partly based on Favreau’s early experience in Los Angeles.

The film centers on Favreau’s struggling comedian, as he does out with his friends, lead by Vaughn, to try and pick up women.

Favreau and Vaughn have good chemistry together, with Favreau being the awkward straightman to Vaughn’s fast-talking ladies man.

Ten years later, the two actors would have a bit of a role reversal in The Break Up, with Favreau playing Vaughn’s fast-talking womanizer of a best friend.

In the end, I could saw that Swingers was a decent enough and it definitely helped to kick-start the careers of the two main actors.
