  • Summary: Reunited for the first time since their hit "Swingers," Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn co-star in a comedy about two hapless best friends who are plunged headlong into the world of organized crime. (Artisan Entertainment)

  1. Favreau, who wrote "Swingers," has now directed and written the hilarious Made, which re-teams him with Vaughn. The two play off each other so well that they recall fond memories of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.
  2. Some of the dialogue in Made was improvised, and the comic invention at work here -- Vaughn's and Favreau's -- make Made into a rough gem.
  3. 75
    A peculiarly entertaining comedy, revisits the rapport that Favreau and Vaughn had in "Swingers" (1996), and rotates it into a deadpan crime comedy.
  4. 70
    There are laughs -- lots of them, too -- but at some point the source of the laughs -- Vaughan's Ricky, a yammering loose cannon -- goes from entertaining to obnoxious.
  5. None of the criminal skulduggery feels quite right, but the comic bits between Bobby (Favreau) and Ricky (Vaughn) are freewheeling fun.
  6. 60
    The film's a trifle, but a beautifully crafted one.
  7. Totally in the distance is the memory of "Swingers," whose hipster goof has been replaced by a stupid goof. This may be what is meant by the “dumbing down of America.”

    Look here is the deal. The movie plot itself is kinda whacky, but I have NEVER EVER, laughed so hard in my life. Just some of the parts of this movie still have me laughing months later. My all time favorite part of any movie is in this movie. The part when vince vaughn gets to the hotel and he is going back and forth with the bell hop. There is not a funnier part IMO in any movie.

    frogs aren't purple by the way...
