A really funny film - laugh out loud feel good movie (by lesleyabloomer)
Just been to the Premiere of this movie in Edinburgh. Went with deeply sceptical friend who was laughing out loud from about 15mins in. Great actors just having a ball with a really good script and lots of laughs.
Delightfully funny! (by dcfabs)
I watched this movie on an overseas flight and was told that I kept laughing out loud. I love British humor and I'm an accountant who dislikes accounting so I had to watch this movie and it did not disappoint. It's funny, heartwarming, uplifting and makes you want to stand up and cheer - which I may have actually done!
Feel good film. (by lorrainesophia)
Watched this with an open mind because I'm not an huge Rob Brydon fan. I'm now converted; along with the brilliant Jim Carter and Rupert Graves, the rest of the cast perform so well together in circumstances I would never dream of seeing them. It's life affirming that our actors are prepared to do anything to entertain us, showing skills not normally viewed. I spent the whole film smiling and the ending is unexpectedly laugh out loud funny.
Classic Brit flick (by tanya-duffy)
I just love a Brit flick. This is the Full Monty with water! Us brits do make good films and this is just another one. Down on their luck misfits, failed relationships, male bonding in a slightly uncomfortable way, impressing the girl, moral dilemmas, it's got it all and more. Give it a view.
A Must-see Inspired by the Real Deal (by chartreuse-at-heypressto)
Endearing, heroic, life-affirming story about a group of men who refuse to be buried by the monotony of their lives, the responsibilities, the losses, collapsed relationships, the failures of the past, the expectations of the future, their less than perfect bodies. They defy labels, take strength and find expression in their weekly synchronised swimming. With them, withering accountant Eric Robert Brydon , blossoms and together they rise from the waves.No guns or explosions though it does have a chase but it offers chuckles, a laugh out loud, a lump in the throat, and I defy anyone not to <more>
cheer at the climax of the action.A British gem inspired by the real-life Swedish team.
Enjoyable entertainment with a good message (by thomas-78944)
Just watched Swimming with Men in Germany ahead of its UK release next month. Lots of laughs, good clean fun, but with an excellent message about team work and mateship. Don't let the title put you off- this is a great little gem of a film.
Great Movie with a Shocking Ending! (by sarahilayda1)
Well this movie is just pure fun! It's harmless, charming, cute and funny. I love British humour it's raw and honest, this movie doesn't try hard it's just there for you to enjoy. I doubt it will be a popular movie but they actually synchronise swim in it and they actually seem to have fun?! It's perfect. Perfect little movie. And the ending is also very very pleasantly surprising : Thanks to the producers for the existante of this movie.
Surprise (by gpmnsp)
I didn't expect much from the title and the known storyline. But - while watching this movie I had tears in my eyes most of the time because either it was so funny or I was emotional moved. Good movie with very good actors. I will watch it again in some time.
