Overview

Screenwriter/actor Jon Favreau and actor/co-producer Vince Vaughn follow up their hit Swingers with Made, the story of two friends trying to survive among the mob.

Overview

Screenwriter/actor Jon Favreau and actor/co-producer Vince Vaughn follow up their hit Swingers with Made, the story of two friends trying to survive among the mob. Artisan has done a very nice job on this disc, starting off with a 1.77:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The image on this transfer looks very good with only minor imperfections hindering the print. A small amount of halo and edge enhancement exists, but overall the color schemes and black levels are very even and bright. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround as well as Dolby Digital 2.0. The 5.1 track utilizes surround in all speakers, mainly during scenes with loud music and background noise. Since Made is a dialogue-driven film and not an effects-heavy movie, the surround effects are generally kept to a minimum. Also included on this disc are Spanish subtitles. Made is presented in a "special edition" from Artisan and includes a nice array of extra features. To start with, there is a very funny and informative commentary track by Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, and co-producer Peter Billingsley (who also played the lead boy in A Christmas Story). This commentary should please fans, and also has the option of a telestrator light pen (where the commentators circle things that they point out in the film). Three documentaries totaling 40 minutes in length are included ("Getting It Made," "The Creative Process," and "Getting the Music of Made"), and together, they are a nice overview on the production of the film. Five deleted scenes (plus an alternate ending) and nine alternate scenes with optional commentary let the viewer glimpse at what was cut from the final film. A set of outtakes lets the viewer laugh along with the actors as they flub their lines. A scene edit workshop allows the viewer to mix and match certain scenes and edit them together while comparing them to the finished movie's scenes. Finally, there is a section of music cues that can be heard, a theatrical and teaser trailer for the film, some information on the principle cast and crew, and some thin production notes on the making of the movie. This is a very nice edition of Made that should keep viewers busy for hours on end.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Made drops two floundering amateur boxers Vince Vaughn and director Jon Favreau into a money-laundering scheme that takes them from tedious L.A. day jobs to the heights of New York club life. Favreau the filmmaker tries a little of everything -- jump cuts, freeze frames, contrapuntal sound, indie-flick ukulele-strumming and the half-asleep glory of Peter Falk, who here plays a mob boss. The result is a vibrant genre salad -- the boxing movie punching on the construction-worker movie, which plays voyeur to the stripper movie, which shimmies next to the mob movie, which badda-bings the hip-hop fantasia, which washes all over the late-Woody Allen handheld photography. Packed with appearances by Faizon Love, Jennifer Esposito, Drea de Matteo The Sopranos, Famke Janssen and Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, not to mention rivers of Cristal and after hours booty-jiggling, the film is Swingers in a ghetto fabulous thought bubble.
All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
The stars of Doug Liman's buoyant male bonding comedy Swingers return for this similarly engaging Mob effort, this time under the surprisingly astute direction of first-timer Jon Favreau. In the age of The Sopranos, any film making comic light of the Mafia seems to have its work cut out for it, but this breezy, funny, appealingly cast feature still manages to seem fresh. Vince Vaughn strains for effect on occasion, but is well-matched with Favreau; the two play off each other with the ease of Laurel and Hardy in their heyday. Nearly everyone onscreen makes the most of their brief roles (save for Sean Combs, who fails to escape his notorious persona with a rather weak performance), especially Peter Falk, blessedly returning to a scene-stealing character role. Made isn't much food for thought, but it's a fun ride, filled with nicely idiosyncratic dialogue exchanges and an enviable energy that proves Favreau's talents might extend further than many would have ever predicted.
