Swimming with Men (12a)

Director Oliver Parker. Drama/Comedy


While this never outstrips The Full Monty, this comedy drama moves easily from bittersweet to feel-good larkiness in jaunty but formulaic style. Accountant Eric 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 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.

Starring Rob Brydon, Charlotte Riley, Rupert Graves, Jim Carter, Daniel Mays, Nathaniel Parker, Thomas Turgoose, Jane Horrocks


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

People said they hadn't laughed so much in years. Great moral story for people with emotional stress, great bonding of such varied characters. Brilliant.

A thoroughly enjoyable typically British comedy with an excellent ensemble cast lead by Rob Brydon. How to make something meaningful from a humdrum existence through camaraderie and teamwork. Think Brassed Off, or Full Monty in a swimming pool but without the nudity.

Slow to start, but stick with it, it’s worth it.
