"...Writing, directing and acting are all pitch-perfect in a party movie that keeps spinning funny, sexy and touching surprises..."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (10/31/1996)
"...Sweet and funny....SWINGERS is a winningly confident snapshot of the nightlives of a bunch of young showbiz wannabes....Engaging, refreshingly human in its humor and becomingly modest in its aspirations..."
Variety - Todd McCarthy (09/09/1996)
"...A guy film that gives you something to latch onto....Ruefully funny and unpretentious, with an air of relaxed and confident hipness, SWINGERS is helped along by a clever script and the not surprising fondness it feels for its characters..."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (10/18/1996)
"...The movie is sweet, funny, observant and goofy..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (10/25/1996)
"Favreau's script crackles with sharply amusing, endlessly quotable dialogue..."
Uncut - Andrew Sumner (07/01/2005)
"Liman's very quotable debut offsets its outer hipness with a compassion for its characters' vulnerabilities."
Sight and Sound - Matthew Leyland (07/01/2005)
4 stars out of 5 -- "SWINGERS survives as one of the '90s' most entertaining comedies, a wryly honest dissection of male bravado and that rarity, a decent romcom for blokes."
Total Film - Simon Kinnear (08/01/2012)
"...Terrific....Liman scores from Favreau's exuberantly witty script....Vaughn is a scene-stealer..." -- Rating: A
