Movie Info

His job is a drag, his wife may be cheating on him, and he's not getting any younger. Accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) is simply treading water when he discovers a newfound sense of purpose thanks to an unexpected source: a group of similarly stuck-in-a-rut guys who have found camaraderie and self-worth through synchronized swimming. Sure, they may be a bit paunchy, but they're determined to prove they have what it takes to be a whirling, twirling, scissor-kicking aquatic dream team. And they've set their sights on the ultimate prize: the world championship. Showcasing the sharp wit of The Trip series' Rob Brydon, Swimming With Men is a big-hearted, delightfully offbeat ode to answering your calling, no matter where you are in life.

Proof that there will always be an England. And it'll always be a tad twee.

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.

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.
