Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show begins like the title, with the man himself. Standing in front of a Hollywood audience, Vaughn introduces Justin Long, Vaughn’s co-star in Dodgeball, perhaps better known as the smug guy in those Mac vs. PC ads Apple’s so fond of. Before Long can say anything, Vaughn snatches away his microphone and introduces his friend and longtime collaborator Jon Favreau. Vaughn and Favreau treat Long like crap, until Favreau turns the tables and reads lines from Swingers – with Long taking Vaughn’s place. It’s funny to be sure, but you can’t help but wonder: Oh, man, am I in for 90 minutes of someone else’s inside joke?
