In the annals of filmdom, few efforts have stood the test of time aside from Porky’s and Yentl. But we can easily add Swingers to that list!

How can a movie be made with almost no money?!
How can I get my (Jon Favreau’s) career out of the gate?
How can I (again, Jon Favreau) write a screenplay in 10 days?
How can the city of Los Angeles be made a character in a movie?
How does the coolest soundtrack maybe ever for a film happen?
And how does a movie with so much heart and humor that hits all of the right notes endure for so long, all without an Instagram or Twitter account?
We, the Boozedancing Team, dissect all of these questions, Baby! And more!
Join us for a new episode of One Show, One Drink from the What We Watch When We Drink podcast as we scrounge up a little scratch, polish up the wingtips, order up a round of Glen Moray, and dive into Swingers.

Think about that for a second while you’re picking out a skinny tie for the evening.
Listen up, Baby! You’re the real winner tonight. And you’re soooooo money!
