Swingers (1996)
English- Comedy
Rated “R”
Runtime- 96 min.
dir. Doug Liman
 

Let’s just get into the thick of it.

Story/Writing: 2/2

Comedy writers take note, this is how to be funny. Make characters that we care about, but make us laugh at them too. They don’t even have to get anything specific accomplished most of the time, that’s not what this kind of movie should really be about.

Acting: 2/2

Really, really awesome. Vaughn and Favreau are amazing!

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Absolutely nailed how Vegas really feels and behaves by being on-location. The follow shot in the club scene was breathe-taking.

Sound/FX: 1/2

The scene with the band kind of threw me for a loop and I didn’t really like it. It was just a little ill-timed.

Misc: 1.5/2

I honestly didn’t expect it to be quite this amazing, but it was.

VERDICT: 8/10

It’s on Instant Watch, take some time and view it.
