Product Description

Bobby (Jon Favreau) is an aspiring boxer who is eager to make his way in the world, so when he is offered a job by crime boss Max (Peter Falk), he sees it as a chance to move forward and accepts. Hired to help with the transport of laundered money in New York City, Bobby takes his gangster-wannabe best friend Ricky (Vince Vaughn) along for the ride. But Ricky's loud-mouthed antics and his deluded assumption that he and Bobby are now major players in the underworld, soon get the pair in trouble.

From Amazon.co.uk

Writer and debut director Jon Favreau admits that Made was intended as a follow-up to Swingers. But it clearly isn't a sequel. Favreau's Bobby and Vince Vaughn's Ricky couldn't be much further removed from their earlier swinging characters. This jet-black mob comedy takes them away from the Californian glitz to the back alleys of New York, where a simple test of trustworthiness is messed-up with style. The biggest problem is that Ricky is an idiot (allowing Vaughn to steal the movie) and at every turn the pair run afoul of both his stupidity and out-of-control temper.

Suffering the mood swings are a galaxy of cameo stars: Famke Janssen is Bobby's lap-dancing girlfriend, an unrecognisable Peter Falk is a no-nonsense mob boss, Sean "Puffy" Combs is his exasperated NY equivalent, and Sam Rockwell is a hotel clerk with the patience of a saint. Rapid-fire dialogue, economic editing and an amazingly cool soundtrack certainly recall the best of Swingers, though Made is a far braver movie all round and confirms Favreau as a genuine Indie success story.

On the DVD: Made comes to disc in its original 1.85: 1 ratio, which shows off Favreau's penchant for hand-held camerawork to good effect; and the choice of 5.1 Dolby or DTS naturally makes the best of the rocking song compilation. There are three mini-documentaries that look like they should have been edited together. "Getting it Made" talks about working with a five million dollar budget but no other restrictions; "The Creative Process" continues the theme and leads into the backslapping of friends working together in "Making the Music of Made". Five deleted scenes with optional commentary include an alternate ending that clearly wouldn't have worked. But for the disc's best extra it's a toss up between best buddies Vaughn and Favreau proving themselves knowledgeable in their movie "Telestrator" commentary, or the 25 minutes of outtakes that make them look like amateur idiots. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You know how I do..." 21 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
... The film is not a sequel to 'Swingers' and does not follow on from the 'Swingers' story at all (there are no "money" references to be found).
Anyway, a lot of you who haven't seen this film will be thinking 'Is 'Made' similar to 'Swingers'?'. Well, yes and no. Yes, in that it is another superb film written (and this time directed) by Jon Favreau, who again stars with Vince Vaughn, proving that 'Swingers' wasn't just a fluke, and that it's another dialogue-orientated comedy. And no, because the story and characters in 'Made' are very different to what we found in "Swingers"...
Firstly, 'Made' is a much darker film than 'Swingers'. It's set in a low-key mafia environment, and the action switches from Los Angeles to New York and back again. Jon Favreau plays wannabe boxer Bobby, who acts as protection for his stripper girlfriend (played by Famke Janssen) when she's on call. He loves her and her young daughter (who's "not even his"), and will do anything to make their lives easier - even doing odd jobs for small-time mob boss Maxi (the croaky, almost incomprehinsible Peter Falk - great value, as always), who just happens to employ Bobby's girlfriend as one of his team of strippers. When Maxi calls on Bobby to go to New York to do a mysterious "drop", Bobby gets his life-long friend Ricky to go along with him. Vince Vaughn is brilliant as Ricky, a total idiot, so different to the effortlessly cool Trent, who Vaughn played in 'Swingers'. The hapless Ricky provides most of the comedy in this film, his hilariously cringe-worthy efforts to appear streetwise and in-the-know, especially when trying to impress Maxi and his mob partner in New York, Ruiz. Sean Combs (a.k.a. Puff Daddy / P.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made, made good 9 Mar 2003
By "doph4"
A sequel but by no means a follow on to the hilarious 'swingers'. Same cast playing different characters, a typical straight man funny man routine but done well. The two main characters play off one another very successfully, and the combination of the quiet get the job done guy and the laddish out for adventure guy is perfect. if you liked the first movie you will love this one...... buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny as ..... 4 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Whether you find your way to Made via Swingers or a.n.other route this is a true gem worth buying and rewatching again and again.
It's a satire on all the mob movies/TV shows that make a life of crime out to be something glamorous. Some reviewers have complained about the overuse of the f-word but that's the whole point I think Jon Favreau was trying to make - you can talk the talk but that doesn't make you a gangster. It's a dirty dangerous unpleasant business...as our anti-heros Bobby and Ricky find out.
The performances are excellent all round especially Jon Favreau as the quiet long suffering good guy and Vince Vaughn as the loud mouthed aggravating but ultimately loyal best friend. It's Vince's movie...and he looks like he's having a ball. The DVD commentary is worth the price of the disk in itself...watch for the game of noughts and crosses and the f-word score chart. Him and Jon Favreau really bring out the best in each other and the outtakes are hilarious.
It's seriously funny, sharply written, great direction - an all round fantastic movie...if not as easily accessible as Swingers. It's hard to compare the two. Swingers is the naive innocent little brother that you'll always love...Made the darker, cynical elder that won't be ignored - the product of Jon Favreau's five years in the battlefields of Hollywoodland following the making of Swingers.
Buy it...watch it...don't show it to your granny.

3.0 out of 5 stars I could have been so good 21 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
Why? Why, why, why? I bought this film because of its connection with Swingers, which is a brilliant five star film. This on the other hand is not. I gave it three stars because I didn't have the heart to give Jon Favreau two stars but come on fellas, you could have done better.
The film follows Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn and their flirtation with the mob. Jon Favreau plays a failing boxer named Bobby, he is shy and just like his character in Swingers but the love isn't there.
Vince Vaughn plays Max who is confident and good chums with Bobby (sound familiar). Unlike Swingers this film doesn't have you involved with the characters enough, you just don't care. If you like Swingers it deserves a watch, don't get me wrong it is good, just not great.
I won't do a long-winded and pompous review telling you where the lads went wrong, watch it on TV when it's on or borrow it off a friend. I can't condone downloading but whatever floats your boat.
I you haven’t seen Swingers I urge you to buy it, it’s only a few quid.

2.0 out of 5 stars The problem... 25 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
...is that Jon made Vince's character just so irritating and unlikeable. He is in fact downright dislikable. Pity - 'cos yes, it should have been much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be Made available! 16 July 2003
Format:DVD
The follow-up to one of the best comedy/road trip/relationships film 'Swingers'. John Favreau really has it Made with this second film - I'm becoming a fan and have been looking out to purchase this film since I first saw it but as usual anything involving clever writing which is funny and intelligent is always hard to find. Make this a Saturday night viewing whether on your own or with a partner/friends - it suits any occasion (other than probably with your parents - they won't get it AT ALL). See it now
