I wanted to see this movie so bad when I first heard about it. I loved Swingers, and I thought it would be great to see Jan Favreau and Vince Vaughn in a mafia-type role. I was, however, very disappointed. In this movie Vince Vaughn's character was so incredibly annoying, I almost had to turn the movie off before it was over. This movie could have been awesome if Vince Vaughn played the chill, laid-back character he played in Swingers. I can understand Jon Favreau wanting to do something different, but this was just plain bad.
