Critic Reviews for Swinging With The Finkels

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (1)

A contempo contribution to the august British tradition of lame, unfunny sex comedies.

Top Critic

The film features one-dimensional, married characters who lack distinctive personalities, and fails to include a backstory that proves they ever had any chemistry together.

We Got This Covered

Imagine the world's longest, lamest and smuttiest episode of the redoubtable TV classic "Love, American Style" and you have only begun to conceptualize the mind and genital-numbing horror that is "Swinging with the Finkels."

Full Review… | August 26, 2011

An occasionally loathsome sitcom starring two miscast leads doing their chipper best to make this malarkey profound.

Full Review… | August 26, 2011

[E]xcruciatingly wrongheaded and outdated... [T]reats women like mysterious creatures from the depths of the Victorian age and marriage like an extended standup routine from the 1970s...

Audience Reviews for Swinging With The Finkels

Can't believe I sat through this, nearly gave up on it very early on.
Melissa George is especially horrid in this one. Lost half a star for the scene of her with her breast pump. Character is also crude, vulgar and repellant.
Mandy Moore fares a little better, but she and the husband have zero chemistry. He looks like her father in the flashbacks of them dating.
And wouldn't you know it, my all time "favourite" happy ending in the movie. That one never gets old.

Super Reviewer


This was a cute little rom-com with a strangely assembled cast. The ending was sweet and exactly what was called for.
