I could have been so good
on 21 February 2006
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.
