The beauty of Swingers lies in the irony of its title: Despite their lounge-lizard posing, these guys will never really live up to their Rat Pack dreams.

Variety
Engaging, refreshingly human in its humor and becomingly modest in its aspirations, this hip look at being out of it announces some promising new talent and will play well with young audiences looking for comfortable entertainment that doesn't feel manufactured.

TNT RoughCut
Hilarious.

The A.V. Club
Swingers has something genuinely rare: a fine script and realistic characters.
80
Los Angeles Times
Confident of its emotional effects, Swingers knows how to breathe life into its people, and hooking audiences is its reward.
78
Austin Chronicle
Actor-screenwriter Favreau and director Liman demonstrate with Swingers that they're definitely "money."
75
San Francisco Chronicle
It's no masterpiece, but it's real.
75
USA Today
Uneven, amateurish and borderline misogynistic. But it's also very funny, and it never loses its cool.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
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.

ReelViews
Enjoyable in a shallow way, but there's nothing so special here that it warrants more than a cursory glance.
