When a girl broke up with me a few years ago I spent that Friday night watching Swingers. On Saturday, I watched Swingers with the director, Dough Liman, and editor, Stephen Mirrione, audio commentary. To wrap up the weekend, I watched Swingers with the Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn audio commentary. In a weird way, this movie became a close friend that spent the entire weekend helpeing me get through a rough break-up.
I dare you to watch the diner scene and see if you can go 24 hours without having to watch the entire movie. I took that dare and lost because I plan to watch it when I get home. It’s not because I want to relive that depressing weekend where I didn’t change out of my pajamas, it’s because Swingers is a good f’ing movie. It’s one of those movies that you can watch over and over again, in any state of mind, and still get enjoyment from it. For your sake, I hope you lose the dare. You deserve to watch a good movie tonight.
