The license plate of Jimmy's Limo reads "DBLDN11." This is a reference to a blackjack strategy articulated in Swingers (1996) that one should always double down on an 11. See more »

Martel's and coke. One ice cube. In a snifter this time.
Snifters are for warm drinks.

When served warm.

This is a much darker comedy than the breakthrough hit, "Swingers", to compare the two would be useless. The dialogue and chemistry between Favreau and Vaughn, though, is still at it's comedic best. Since Favs was directing this flick, he let Vince go all out on his character Ricky. The two longtime friends go to New York to do a mob job with little experience on how to do any kind of job. They, needless to say, get themselves into quite a bit of trouble along the way. The entire movie itself is hilarious, there is quite a bit of profanity and a strip scene at the beginning, but if you can handle that, you should enjoy yourself thoroughly. If it were up to me, Vaughn and Favreau would make a movie together once every other year. The chemistry is so money, baby.
