Trivia

There is reference to a company, "Cardiff Giant". The Cardiff Giant was a hoax conceived by George Hull, a confirmed atheist, after having an argument with a fundamentalist minister about the existence of "Giants in the Earth" as referenced in the book of Genesis. In 1868 he built a 10 foot carved statue, treated to look ancient and buried it. A year later, when workers were hired to dig a well on his property in Cardiff, NY the statue was discovered. A great public discussion ensued as Christian Fundamentalists defended the statue as proof of the giants. The debate went on long enough for Hull to make over $20,000 - charging 50 cents to peek at the "historic artifact". See more »

love it!
24 March 2002 | by (sydney) – See all my reviews

After hearing about this, I knew I had to check it out after Swingers, which was an interesting movie in itself, but not hugely funny. Made is definitely one of the funniest movies Ive seen in a few years. It's not obviously funny, or vulgar humour. Its the little exchanges and facial expressions of Jon Favreau and Vinvce Vaughn that really light this movie up.

Lets face it, the cinematography isnt the best, or the editing, but the script and the combined subtle talents of the two leads will have you snorting with mirth in nearly every scene. Their chemistry is perfect, and cant remember seeing such chemistry since Lemmon/Matthau in their countless movies together. The gratingly annoying Vaughn bounces off Favreaus retiring dry humour incredibly well.

I can see people not liking this. The audience has to do a little bit of work to stay with the humour, which can be a small look that is missed if you blink. The plot itself is a little tired, but the two leads made it work, at least for me

9/10, fave film of the year so far.
