Ep. 139 - Swingers (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy)
Score Cue Snapshots! • Comedy, Drama, 07-Mar-2022
Seriously, who can forget the 1996 Doug Liman comedy featuring Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Ron Livingston and Heather Graham? Set in Hollywood, CA during the 90's swing revival, this last scene is what you hope for the entire film - a way for Mike (played by Favreau) to finally be comfortable in his own skin.
With a track called 'Go Daddy-O' performed by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, we simply just think this is simply one of the best scenes ever. If you haven't seen the film, you should put it in the queue of must-sees.
