Goofs

Although the guys all lament the fact that there is no fighting in the version of video hockey they are playing, that version is NHLPA '93, which did, in fact, have fighting (as well as being able to make someone's head bleed). Fighting was not removed from the series until NHL '94. See more »

Too cool for words
30 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Swingers is just about the coolest film on the planet. It's so laid back it's horizontal. There aren't enough words in a thesaurus to describe how good this movie is! Watch and enjoy. The direction from Doug Liman is awesome and the acting matches. It's funny but not in your face, it's hip but doesn't care and it just makes for a great picture. Heather Graham looks gorgeous at the end as an added bonus for the guys too!
