Synopsis:
Faced with a full-blown mid-life crisis, accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) joins an all-male group of synchronised swimmers, discovering that making patterns in a pool can, for a couple of hours at least, smooth out the bumps in his work and marriage. Initially keeping their personal lives in the locker, the ramshackle squad and coach Susan (Charlotte Riley) slowly learn to reveal their inner lives, as well as their paunches. But can they get their lives and routines in sync as they embark on an unlikely journey to Milan to compete in the World Championship?

Funny, daft Brit-flick - like The Full Monty in water! Goes on too long though. - Swimming with Men review by PV

Spoiler Alert
16/04/2019

This film starts well - the first half hour is a joy. Typically British in that the Rob Bryden hero is a loser character - that just isn't an American thing, but more British than a cup of tea.

Like The Full Monty or Reggie Perrin in water then, with some well-known British actors starring and some great lines.

It does go on too long and has to force in a love angle, of course; the female trainer also gets very irritating.

But all in all, watchable and good clean fun! 3 stars.

Will have you smiling - Swimming with Men review by TB

Spoiler Alert
23/07/2019

I was so close to giving this film a four because it had me smiling throughout.

As has been said in other reviews; the film is literally the The Full Monty but in the swimming pool. All of the characters are excellent with their own personal stories that fit into why these misfits fitted together and rehabilitated each other. It’s a really enjoyable and fun film to watch.

Abit ridiculous, but enjoyable - Swimming with Men review by AL

Spoiler Alert
03/02/2019

Taken in by the front over and remembering a little bit of Rob Brydon talking about this on the Graham Norton show. It was very daft, and at times unbelievably. But good innocent fun and the sort of film that could only be made in Britain. I wouldn't have gone to see this at a cinema, but on DVD totally happy way to spend only around 1.5 hours. And the shortish running time was appreciated.
