Trivia

The line "You're so money came from a Spike Lee/Michael Jordan commercial. The director kept calling the basketball player "money" in the Nike advertisements. Jon Favreau saw those commercials, but the first time he ever heard someone describe something as "money" in real life was when Vince Vaughn said it on the set of Rudy. Potential investors and studios wanted to get rid of the "money"s, "honey"s, and "baby"s. See more »

Best movie ever
25 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw that someone commented this is the perfect guy movie. I'd like to add that it's not just for guys. The characters in it are just as easy to relate to for girls. If you think girls don't pathetically chase after guys the same way the men of Swingers were going after girls, you need to get out more.(Not meant to be an insult.) My favorite character in it (though I love them all) is Rob. His insecurity is cute, but of course he's also a loyal friend. You can't beat that. And I love the goofy quote. "Hi, Mom. I'm goofy. Send more money." That's great! This is one of those movies that I love to watch over and over again. I will never get sick of it. Plus my husband (then boyfriend) introduced me to it so of course I love it. He even picked me up from my classes once by yelling, "Hey, do you know where all the high school girls hang out??" from across the street. This movie was incredibly funny and deserves a lot more praise than it gets.
