Swingers is a movie released in 1996, about the lives of single, unemployed actors living in Los Angeles, California. Written by Jon Favreau and directed by Doug Liman, the movie starred Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Ron Livingston and Heather Graham.

The characters clearly idolize the swinging lifestyle of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Filmed on location at several Hollywood nightclubs (including the Dresden Lounge and the Derby), the film increased interest in 1960s culture, Hollywood nightlife , and swing music. At the end of the movie, Favreau and Graham swing dance to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at the Derby.
