Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn (the boys behind the comic gem Swingers) are reunited for this loose comedy about two childhood pals trying to make it as low-rent mobsters. In true Mean Streets fashion, Favreau is the stable hard-luck case, while Vaughn is the eternal screw-up. While the duo's meandering character comedy worked in Swingers' slice-of-LA-life, it becomes a serious go-nowhere prospect when shoehorned into the gangster genre. Story has them flying to New York to do some unknown business with some unknown person. Mostly, they just screw around. Without the supporting players of Swingers, Favreau and Vaughn are on their own, and they spend the entire film grousing, arguing and fighting like 12-year-olds. Favreau's character is particularly annoying this time around. There are a few good laughs, but fans of Swingers are sure to feel cheated.
