    It's no masterpiece, but it's real. show more

    Andy Seiler USA Today

    Uneven, amateurish and borderline misogynistic. But it's also very funny, and it never loses its cool. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    It's a "First Wives Club" for single guys, giving voice to a whole range of authentic, if not always responsible, attitudes and emotions. show more

    F. X. Feeney Mr. Showbiz

    Has such perfect pitch in small matters that, as it builds, it proves no less capable in tackling bigger issues--and what begin as chuckles become deep belly laughs. show more

    San Francisco Examiner

    Like a Les Brown tune, a really dry martini and a hug from a good buddy, Swingers makes you feel warm all over, baby. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie is sweet, funny, observant and goofy with a small ``g,'' which means you don't get paid, but at least you don't have to wear the suit. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    Doesn't really add up to much -- except a good time. But it's smart, funny and cute. With all that going for you, who needs to be money? [25 October 1996, Friday, p.H] show more

    Ann Hornaday Baltimore Sun

    There're some low New York laughs in Swingers and some nice clothes if you like bad taste, but on the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia. At least they know how to make a sandwich in that town! show more

    Frank Lovece TV Guide

    The genial humor is occasionally marred by an overall sexist tone and some downright nasty homophobic and racist attempts at humor. show more
