Never has the word ‘money’ been used as an adjective so hilariously then in this classic movie, which came out 20 years ago this month.
‘Swingers’ came out in October 1996 and introduced the world to Vince Vaughan and Jon Favreau, who to this day I believe epitomize the term ‘bromance’ better than any Hollywood hetero dream couple. It also helped to revive swing music.
The memorably funny scenes in this movie are vast and furious. The ‘kill the bunny’ speech is up there among my favorites,…

How about you? What’s your favorite movie ‘bromance’?
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
