Swingers (1996)

Directed by: Doug Liman

Starring: Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Heather Graham

Genres: Comedy, Drama

Corrected entry: When Mikey and Trent are driving to Vegas, the top on the convertible is up. They stop at a gas station and the top is down. They get back on the road and the top is up again.

Correction: This is not a continuous scene. The shots jump from when they're on the road, then in the gas station, then back on the road. We don't see them pull in and out of the gas station. That gives them enough time to put the top down and up between shots.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: In the scene where T and Sue are playing hockey, T yells, "Chelios deals to Roenick, he shoots, he scores." When the television is shown, however, the assist is credited to #28 Steve Larmer instead of #7 Chris Chelios.

Correction: Trent acutally says "Chelios STEALS, to Roenick..." so it is entirely possible that Chelios would not get credit for an assist (if Chelios poke-checked the puck away for example and it ended up on Larmer's stick, who then, passed to Roenick.).

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, when Mike is talking to Trent on the phone, and Trent is trying to convince Mike to go out, he says he has a callback for a pilot at nine the next morning. Later, they go to Vegas and don't leave until it is daytime. There's no way he gets back to L.A. before 9. Seeing as he's a struggling actor in the movie, missing his callback seems like a bad idea.

Correction: He tells Mike he has a call-back at 9 so that Mike thinks it'll be a quick trip, not an all-nighter.

Corrected entry: When Mike and Trent are given the $100 chips, the dealer places them on the table just in front of the chip holder. In the next shot, they appear right in front of Mike, without the dealer giving him the chips.

Correction: Just as Mike begins to say "Do you have anything smaller" you can hear the 'chink' of them being moved.


Corrected entry: When Trent and Mikey are driving to Vegas, the trafic tickets on the Falcon keep disappearing and reappearing.

Correction: As far as I can see, the tickets only disappear once they get to Vegas; and this would be because they want to make a good impression at the casino so that they get given 'free stuff'.


Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning when Jon Favreau is on the phone in his flat you can see the cameraman reflected in the window directly in front of him. (00:06:25)
