A contempo contribution to the august British tradition of lame, unfunny sex comedies.
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.
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."
An occasionally loathsome sitcom starring two miscast leads doing their chipper best to make this malarkey profound.
[E]xcruciatingly wrongheaded and outdated...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...
It helps if you don't look directly at it.
If you make it to the so-called happy ending, think aloud if Swinging with the Finkels would have lived up to its name better if the titular couple ended their relationship on the business side of a noose.
I'm right down the middle on this one. It's not great, but it's not terrible either.
Likeable leads can't save this dreary sex comedy.
a bit crude for its own good
Marriage, in the film, is the necessary evil we all must figure out how to endure in order to be happy or, at least, feel normal.
I'm shocked that this movie, which opens next week, even got a theatrical release and didn't go straight to DVD. Even more amazing is that it got made in the first place.
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.
Unfunny to the point of utter boredom. Martin freeman is funny at times but the film in general seems terribly forced. The whole tone of the film is quite odd and when it should be funny it is serious and off putting. A large cast is wasted and a potential comedy is ruined by lack of focus.
