The team from Swingers for a film that can't recapture the lightning twice. Both the leads provide great characters and the film is very fuuny when the cast riffs of one another. Vaughn creates a character that is close to being unlikable and is tough to watch at times, great character development though. The film doesn't have the depth that Swingers had, Favearu is a great actor and writer but this is an odd film to make. He chose a few odd films during this period after the Swingers success which ultimately shut him down as the leading man. I liked the film chemistry, didn't love the story but I think it is a film that is worth checking out if you're fans of the actors. 28-09-2017.

Although it uses an overused plot and drags near the middle, chemistry and jokes exchanged between Favreau and Vince Vaughn are enough to make it enjoyable. The ending is perfect and brings it all together nicely. It has a purpose and consistently provides laughs despite its lack of pace.

Not even half way through the movie you hope Vaugh somehow takes a bullet. Typical story, typical snooze. Not original at all. I can't even finish it.

The first and third acts aren't NEARLY as good as the second (not sure if it's the exact acts or not.) The first act is better than the third. The main problem is that they all feel like different movies. The first act is a boxer's family life, the second act is a (sort of) sequel to Swingers at night that's phenomenal, and the third act is a western of sorts almost. But it get's a higher score than it probably deserves due to the performances and characters. The writing is alright but it excels in the script, and the direction is technically poor due to the jumbled tone, but it's not that bad aside from that. It's Jon Favreau's first directing attempt, and it's not that bad, but knowing how much better he gets kind of doesn't help.

It's a lite comedy and a "wanna be" mob movie that works.

The film isn't as clever as Swingers but it boasts enough witty dialogue to make it entertaining.

It had some amusing moments but overall it was a flat lacklustre gangster-comedy that was not really worth watching.

Awesome, love the chemistry between Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, the soundtrack, and the story. Jon Favreau is a great writer and director and should write/direct more often.

Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn are one of my favorite onscreen tandems, and while Made isn't the classic Swingers was - not many films are - it is still a winning and entertaining outing. The duo play a pair of wannabe henchmen who are constantly bickering with each other and getting themselves into trouble, mainly because Vaughn's character won't shut up. Favreau, in his directorial debut, keeps things low key while mixing it up with the crime and comedy genres, and does a pretty good balancing act between humor and annoyance. But the main draw remains watching Favreau and Vaughn play effortlessly off one another, which is something that never gets old.

It's mostly Swingers 2, but with Vince Vaughn typical character has been switched on to eleven. Not a bad comedy and it'll depend on how much you find Vaughn to be funny or annoying. Jon Favreau has steady directing skills and plays the straight guy once again to Vince's clown.

I don't understand WHY this is considered a "comedy"... To me, it was an irritating, tedious and grating film, thanks in no small part - oh, let's just admit, thanks in LARGE part - to Vince Vaughn's FULL RETARD performance. I was praying for his character to get whacked in the first 5 minutes of the film. I always enjoy Jon Favreau, because he has control. Vaughn, on the other hand, , just goes off the deep end with obnoxious ad-libs until he sucks any HINT of comedy out of a movie. This was more like ANTI-HUMOR.

Love the wit. Not swingers, but not bad.

Great movie. Great script, good direction, hilarious, and very well-acted by Vaughn and Favreau.

Made is hilarious! Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn play off each other so well that you feel like they have been friends for years.

Good enough Jon Favreau/Vince Vaughn basic comedy.

The two worked well together on the screen doing this basic thing - like they did with Swingers. It surely didn't deserve an Academy Award, but I liked watching it...

Great interactions between Favreau and Vaughn, but those funny elements couldn't save the film's confusing plot and some hard to understand accents of supporting characters.

Love this movie. Funny every time

1/19/2014: A very good cast and a fun interesting story, but not a great movie. Vaughn's character was a little too over the top obnoxious, which hurt the movie.

- Seen this countless times now, one of my fave comedies...makes me laugh every single time...just love it. Vaughn is hilarious in this and he and Favreau have a great chemistry!

- Just watched this again, Vince Vaughn is hilarious in this and there's so many quotable lines. Check it out!
- Really made me laugh, I have watched it several times. Shot by my favourite cinematographer Christopher Doyle.

Not remotely as good as swingers. The entire film seems to center on how annoying Vaughn's character can be.
