Swimming with Men (2018)




Critic Consensus: Swimming with Men touches on thought-provoking themes surrounding modern masculinity, but ultimately never manages to do much more than tread water.

Movie Info

Eric is tired of his accountancy job and feels that his wife neither loves nor respects him. The same applies to his teenage son. When he observes a group of men practicing choreography during his usual swim training and obviously missing a member, he addresses them - and is quickly accepted into the team. Eric enjoys synchronized swimming. Together, they decide to participate in an international competition.

Critic Reviews for Swimming with Men

All Critics (25)

It never outstrips The Full Monty, but for those looking for a gentle tale with an unashamedly romantic streak, this film should float your boat.

Swimming with Men wants to be The Full Monty, but despite the likeable Brydon and others, it's about as funny as a verruca.

Not much in the current film makes sense.

July 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film moves quite easily from bittersweet tones to feel-good larkiness, in jaunty but formulaic style.

Parker draws perfectly pitched performances from his well-chosen cast.
