Made Reviews

August 6, 2008
Unfortunately, Vaughn repeatedly crosses the line between persuasively playing an obnoxious character and coming across as nerve-gratingly self-indulgent.
June 24, 2006
If the film's too ready to go with the flow of Chris Doyle's handheld camerawork, and sometimes seems ad hoc, its spot-on attention to the faux pas of the moment certainly raises a smile.
June 18, 2002
With both movies and TV constantly mining mob life for script fodder, Made never comes up with a new twist on the material.

The stars are hilarious and the supporting cast is perfectly in tune with the spirit of their comedy.
August 2, 2001
Made isn't in a particular hurry to get anywhere, but Jon Favreau's script has the feel of improvisation done right.
July 27, 2001
The comic invention at work here -- Vaughn's and Favreau's -- make Made into a rough gem.

Leaves you wishing they hadn't tried so hard to do something different.
July 27, 2001
Amusing in the offbeat humor that comes from the wackiness of odd but believable characters.
July 27, 2001
Won't take the team of Favreau and Vaughn beyond the audience they won with Swingers, but for the converted, it is equally confirming and rewarding.

If there is a more annoying performance than Vaughn's in a movie this year, it can only mean the real Jerry Lewis has made a comeback.
July 27, 2001
I wish Made hadn't been made. And if it had to be, I wish it had been made as a silent movie.
July 20, 2001
A movie with better potential than actual results.

At some point the source of the laughs ... goes from entertaining to obnoxious.

So miscalculated and chafingly unfunny is this movie it will leave you convinced that if the gangster comedy isn't killed off by actor-driven improv riffs like this, maybe it ought to be. Better dead than more like Made.
July 20, 2001
The kind of crime comedy that you root for even as it grows progressively more irritating.

July 20, 2001
Despite the film's faults, Favreau puts a fresh spin on the mob movie genre, and that's something we can all admire.
July 20, 2001
The movie is difficult to describe because it's not what happens that matters, it's how it happens and why.

July 20, 2001
Likely to leave fans missing the fresh hit of Swingers and leave newcomers wondering what some of the fuss was about.
July 20, 2001
Vaughn and Favreau almost always give us something to watch.
July 19, 2001
Favreau and Vaughn have chemistry to kill: comic, combative and engagingly goofball.

Made, with its undernourished plot and fizzle of a climax, isn't exactly breaking new ground in mob comedy realism.
July 13, 2001
You still laugh a lot in spite of a lot of jittery babble.
July 13, 2001
Mr. Favreau demonstrates an admirable need to anger the Swingers faithful ... That ambition doesn't translate into a very good movie.

July 13, 2001
Lacks the visual virtuosity and breathless pacing director Doug Liman brought to Swingers. But the Vaughn-Favreau chemistry still flares and Favreau's fine ear for comic dialogue hasn't dulled.

July 13, 2001
A consistent pleasure, a delightful blend of farce and sentiment, its flights of fancy well-grounded in the foibles of human nature.

July 13, 2001
If you liked Swingers, you'll like Made. But don't expect as many quick laughs.
July 13, 2001
Lacks the appeal of Swingers, which was so much richer in its characters and social observations.
July 13, 2001
Made is little more than a rambling chain of combative buddy mishaps, but the interplay between Vaughn and Favreau, who does great double takes of thrusting chin frustration, spins you through the weak patches.

An amusing gangster.
July 10, 2001
Everything about this film is dull.

The checklist of local color is evident, but the movie looks wan and murky.
