All right den, Mmhmm!
20 August 2000 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

"Swing Blade" is a fake trailer for a movie that combines the characters from "Sling Blade" and "Swingers". It is hilarious, and the actors really have their parts down. I especially liked Carl's repeated attempts at leaving a message on a woman's answering machine. All in all, a decent parody, and if you liked either of the two you should watch this.
