What can I say, even after all the dust has settled and the backlash has turned on Tarantino and his 'mixmaster' approach to filmmaking, I still absolutely adore this film from start to finish. It exists in the perfect storm of seeing it theatrically with the right friends, in the midst of discovering the indie cinema of the late '80s and early '90s, and the various films that Tarantino's work has been a gateway drug toward discovering.
This was a film I absolutely hated upon the first viewing, and decided to give another chance a few years later.
It has since become one of my favorite films of all time. A perfect intro to Vince Vaughn's dry, dead-pan prick style of comedy, and Favreau is great as his put-upon best friend.
