Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/31/1996
"...Writing, directing and acting are all pitch-perfect in a party movie that keeps spinning funny, sexy and touching surprises..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/01/1996
"...Terrific....[Liman scores] from Favreau's exuberantly witty script....[Vaughn is] a scene-stealer..." -- Rating: A
Variety - 09/09/1996
"...Sweet and funny....SWINGERS is a winningly confident snapshot of the nightlives of a bunch of young showbiz wannabes....Engaging, refreshingly human in its humor and becomingly modest in its aspirations..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/18/1996
"...A guy film that gives you something to latch onto....Ruefully funny and unpretentious, with an air of relaxed and confident hipness, SWINGERS is helped along by a clever script and the not surprising fondness it feels for its characters..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/25/1996
"...The movie is sweet, funny, observant and goofy..."
Uncut - 07/01/2005
"Favreau's script crackles with sharply amusing, endlessly quotable dialogue..."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2005
"Liman's very quotable debut offsets its outer hipness with a compassion for its characters' vulnerabilities."
Total Film - 08/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "SWINGERS survives as one of the '90s' most entertaining comedies, a wryly honest dissection of male bravado and that rarity, a decent romcom for blokes."

Product Description:

Hauling his sentimental friend out of his postbreakup funk, a club-hopping swinger takes him on a hilarious odyssey through the dating game of the 1990s, hitting the Vegas strip, fashionable martini lounges, and other modern hunting grounds of the opposite sex.

Plot Synopsis:

SWINGERS follows insecure Mike and smooth-talking Trent, two retro-hip showbiz wanna-bes, as they make the scene at various clubs in Hollywood and Vegas. During their martini-fueled odyssey, the duo and their buddies explore an altogether new vernacular while struggling with images of machismo, self-esteem, relationships, and, of course, sex. Lead actor Jon Favreau based the script on his and his friends' real-life Tinseltown adventures.
