swingers-movie-posterThere’s a marvelous scene involving an answering machine that really got me into Swingers.

It’s 3 in the morning and Mike (Jon Favreau) is calling a girl he met a few hours earlier in a bar, asking when he can see her again.
Never mind that his friends suggested he wait a couple of days to make the phone call, or that he’s clearly in the midst of an emotional breakdown.
Mike just picks up the phone and dials. And then he dials again and again, each time leaving a pathetic voicemail on this stranger’s machine.

I don’t know whether the scene is played for laughs or straight up drama, but one thing’s for sure: I really felt for the guy.
