I seen it in the theaters when it was released. The plot is ok. Not the most interesting or fast moving plot I've seen. The acting is well above average. Vince Vaughn is fantastic. Probably one of the few times someone has acted so obnoxious on film it made me want to run outside the theater find a brick and bash it over his head. He was beyond convincing.

I thought I had seen or heard a while back that the dvd was to loaded with extras. I'm not sure if this is true.

I feel the movie is worth a look but would not reccomend a purchase. It falls into one of those either loved it or hated categories for me.

I liked the performances inMade, but didn't really care for the plot. Vince Vaughn was terrific as usual, always had me laughing.

But the real highlight in the film was the Dustin Diamond cameo...that was classic.

Got this bad boy for $14.99 at Target and I'm glad I did. The movie is funny, the acting is very good, and the extras are great. Deleted Scenes, extended scenes, and the commentary is great. Not as fresh as Swingers but very good on its own terms.

The comments about Vince doing a good job acting are right on the money. You were supposed to hate his character and boy I did. One of those buddy movies where you really don't see why the main character puts up with the stupid buddy at all. I felt the same way about De Niro in Mean Streets and Eric Roberts in The Pope of Greenwich Village. This movie wasn't as powerful as either of those movies, but was an interesting film. If good art is supposed to affect you emotionally, then this movie was art. At times I was screaming at the screen when Vince would do something stupid. I felt like John Belushi on SNL when he was doing the news commentary on weekend update and he got so upset that he had a fit and threw himself to the floor...
