Hip and Hilarious-critics and audiences alike are raving about this must-see comedy hit that's so money, it catapulted Vince Vaughn (The Break-Up, Wedding Crashers) and Jon Favreau (Couples Retreat, Iron Man) to stardom! It's the laugh-out-loud look at a fun group of friends who spend their days looking for work and their nights in and out of hollywood's coolest after-hours hangouts! When the lovesick Mike (Jon Favreau) can't seem to shake a relationship rut, his smooth, fast talking buddy Trent (Vince Vaughn) decides he'll do whatever it takes to show Mike a good time! Whether laughing over martinis in smoky cocktail lounges...or searching for beautiful babies on an outrageous road trip to Vegas, the young Swingers are determined to rewrite the rules of modern dating!
For anyone who wants to catch a glimpse of the Los Angeles "lounge" scene that was in vogue during the early and mid-1990s, here's the movie that virtually defined that brief but colorful nightlife milieu. As an added bonus, it just happens to be a very funny, observant story about love, loss, and male bonding among a group of friends who struggle to find decent jobs by day, and lurk through Hollywood's hottest nightclubs by night. A sort of latter-day Rat Pack, they include Mike (writer-actor Jon Favreau) and his closest buddy, Trent (Vince Vaughn), who are waiting for the big show-biz break that seems to be eluding them. Mike's twisted up about the girlfriend he left back East to pursue his going-nowhere standup comedy career, and Trent uses the word "money" as an adjective ("Man, we look totally money tonight") with such frequency that you may find yourself slipping into lounge-lizard mode after watching the movie. One of the most noteworthy indie-film success stories of the '90s, this time-capsule comedy seized its moment in the spotlight, launched several promising careers, and continues to maintain its lasting appeal. --Jeff Shannon

They decide to go Vegas to gamble and to pick up women but all Favereau can think about is his ex girlfriend. He has a chance to get laid with some cocktail waitress but ends up talking to her about his ex-girlfriend. Its so bad that he even uses the phone in her friends trailer to call her and in the meantime, cockblocks Vaughn. Anyway you get jist, the guy can't let go. He's talking about her non-stop, because he is still in love with her. While playing golf he tells his other friend, Livingston that he hasn't mentioned her once today.
Vaughn together with Livingston persists in trying to get Favereau to get over his girlfriend, playing videogames, going to parties and bars. One hilarious moment is when Favereau tries to pick up this girl at a party and the first thing she asks him "is what car he drives".
Favereau's reluctance to let go ultimately annoys one of Vaughn's friends who speaks the truth and calls him a "whiny little bitch who hasn't got laid in a year". Favereau then plucks up the courage to call a girl (on the same night, ignoring the 2 days industry standard) whom he picks up in a bar, only to be cut off by her answering machine many times. He continues to leave messages, telling her about his relationship and even at one point breaking up with the girl he just picked up. The girl ultimately picks and tells him not to ever call again.
Favereau then slips into despair and spends 2 days in his apartment reminiscing about his girlfriend. Livingston then visits him and reminds him his glass is half full and tells him to get over his girlfriend. Its only when Livingston recounts his break up experiences, that Favereau finally wakes up.
He then goes out with the guys and back on the game, where he picks up the gorgeous, young Heather Graham at a bar.
If you just broke up with your girl (no guy admits he's been dumped) then you should watch his. It may not ease the pain, but hopefully it will wake you up.
If you havent seen this movie. SEE IT. Its Favreau and Vaughn at some of their best, they were money then and they didnt know it. Oh and be prepared to cringe in horror for the answering machine scene.
