Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unfortunately, Vaughn repeatedly crosses the line between persuasively playing an obnoxious character and coming across as nerve-gratingly self-indulgent."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"The stars are hilarious and the supporting cast is perfectly in tune with the spirit of their comedy."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Slick suits, hip urban nightspots, and an over the top performance by Vince Vaughn make this rambunctious farce an enjoyable and unpredictable movie with some obligatory fist fighting."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Difficult Second Movie hurdle negotiated. Just."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Swingers fans beware."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"If the film's too ready to go with the flow of Chris Doyle's handheld camerawork, and sometimes seems ad hoc, its spot-on attention to the faux pas of the moment certainly raises a smile."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Made isn't in a particular hurry to get anywhere, but Jon Favreau's script has the feel of improvisation done right."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"A joyless experience with an often irritating, bland, and pointless movie."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The same offbeat sensibility that informed Swingers is also evident here, except that unlike the 1996 film, which dealt with real issues, Favreau's new crime-comedy is plotless"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The film isn't as clever as Swingers but it boasts enough witty dialogue to make it entertaining."
‑ Wilson Morales,
"With both movies and TV constantly mining mob life for script fodder, Made never comes up with a new twist on the material."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The comic invention at work here -- Vaughn's and Favreau's -- make Made into a rough gem."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Vaughn hits the bullseye as a strident, volatile jerk who can't keep his mouth shut. You never really like him, but you can't wait to see what he'll do next -- his missteps and offenses are so unbelievable you wince, but you can't look away."
‑ Stacie Hougland,
"A picture that may not end up with the fervent following of its flashier predecessor, but one that merits a viewing."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"The plot seems to be nothing more than a translucent bridge to the next scene where Vaughn can run his mouth and Favreau can play off him as the longsuffering friend"
‑ Brian Mckay,
