Starring actors (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Jason Bateman) who, like Vaughn, were old enough to love the characters they played, "Starsky and Hutch" worked as an ode not just to the TV series but to the swinging '70s themselves. And Vaughn, as the shady, flamboyant but all-business cocaine dealer Reese Feldman, was in on the fun full throttle. Never throwing in a wink, Vaughn was committed to his '70s sleazebag. He knew it was funny, effortlessly so, but he was serious about it. And no one rocks a Fu Manchu mustache quite like Vaughn.

Vaughnism:"Coke: It costs money. Planes: They cost money. This yacht, this perm, my kid's braces: It all costs money."
