A neat little comedy about a middle-aged man (Rob Brydon) who is having a crisis in his marriage. He happens across a group of mental his local swimming pool who have formed a male synchronised swimming team and through their companionship, he finds his salvation. It's a kind of wetter version of 'The Full Monty' and definitely on the gentle, feel-good end of the comedy spectrum. Brydon and the rest of the cast do play their slightly down-trodden, world weary personas well and the chemistry between the leads is lovely to watch. This is movie that doesn't really have a great deal to say but it does capture a mood and provides more than a few chuckles.
A lovely plodding film. Subtle British humour that flows throughout the film. Gladly spent 90mins watching this!
Yes, this is a true to life story of a men's synchronised swimming team...
Swimming with Men is a water-based film that may not set any Olympic records, but it does provide enough to stay afloat for anyone going through this stage of life. It will provide a few laughs and hopefully motivate men to appreciate the life they have been given.
Reel Dialogue : What is the value of male friendship?
Pretty derivative but watchable. Charlotte Riley is the best thing in it - and its so nice to have a main character in a film who wears glasses but isnt a stereotypical movie glasses wearer ie a geek or weirdo. Yay Charlotte Riley!
Feel good film. Watched it. Felt good.
A sweet film in parts, the confronts some of the problems you come across in everyday life, including mid-life crisis and depression. It does get a little boring at times though, with not enough laugh out loud jokes.
In an attempt to avoid a mid-life crisis, Rob Brydon teams up with a band of fellow misfits to develop their abilities in synchronised swimming, in what is a very amusing, albeit unlikely tale. With its very traditionally English comedy, and unique line up (including a pensioner, a labourer, a homosexual, and a criminal) this feels like an attempt to emulate the success that the likes of The Full Monty gave us, albeit misses the opportunity by not having a memorable soundtrack, a big finale, or a rib-tickling script throughout.
I only got 15 minutes into this movie...
I like the swimming pools, cause I like water
Very gentle very deep. Loved it! This is a more humanistic way of being male.
