Four guys hang out, kid one another, get into scuffles and flash their gonadal searchlight for available women. Yikes, haven't there been enough variations on the multiple-buddy movie? Actually, no.

A winningly confident snapshot of the nightlives of a bunch of young showbiz wannabes in a very upto-the-minute Hollywood.

Ninety minutes spent learning how not to pick up girls. This is what the movies were made for, isn't it?

Mr. Favreau wrote this screenplay with his real friends in mind. And the cast's camaraderie is appealingly clear.

A guy film that gives you something to latch onto, that makes male bonding both believable and appealing.

It's no masterpiece, but it's real.

The movie is sweet, funny, observant and goofy with a small "g," which means you don't get paid, but at least you don't have to wear the suit.

Swingers is uneven, amateurish and borderline misogynistic. But it's also very funny, and it never loses its cool.

This kind of story -- a staple of low-budget features -- is getting awfully stale, and the injection of humor can't completely invigorate the proceedings.
