Jon Favreau, who celebrates his birthday today (October 19), has made a name for himself as of late as a major producer/director, but let’s never forget the film that started it all: 1996’s Swingers.
The film is a perfect time capsule of the decade. (We’re looking at you swing revival!) But the hands-down most 90’s moment in the film is Favreau’s answering machine scene, which is as cringe-inducing as it is poetic and a scene Favreau will never live down.
Naturally, a scene like this makes us think of other notorious film scenes, so in honor of Favreau’s birthday, enjoy these five infamous film scenes actors will never live down. (WARNING: NSFW content!)
