Synopsis:
Water polo team 'The Shiny Shrimps ' have little hope of achieving their goal to compete in the world's biggest LGBTQ+ sporting event, the Gay Games. Their undisciplined behaviour (in and out of the pool) has team captain Jean searching for a new coach to whip the Shrimps into shape. He arrives in the form of World Silver Medallist swimmer Matthias Le Goff (Nicolas Gob) who, after making a homophobic remark on live TV, is offered redemption by means of training and reigning in the flamboyant Shrimps.

Redemption Wins Through - The Shiny Shrimps review by AA

Spoiler Alert
17/01/2020

A joyous film covering the lead up to and appearance of the Shinny Shrimps water polo team at a gay games event being held in Split.  Add to that the involvement of a crack swimmer who passed some homophobic remark on TV and as he had played water polo as youth is tasked with getting the team to the games.  He succeeds in getting them to the games, which becomes an event in itself!

Very Amusing - The Shiny Shrimps review by IG

Spoiler Alert

This film will not test your intellectual ability, but, will make you laugh, and, it is certainly not boring. A feelgood movie with some tragic moments, well worth a watch.

Predictable and Disappointing - The Shiny Shrimps review by WH

Spoiler Alert
03/05/2020

Yes- the actors and dialogue are French -  but after this basic fact sinks in you will realise its actually a US movie made with US dollars and for a mainstream US audience.

I found it very formulaic and predictable. We’ve all seen this story many and many times before- made for mainstream US audiences. Think ‘Blades of Glory” for example.

To be honest - I found it homophobic.  OK for straights- it just reinforces their normal prejudices of how gay men are supposed to be - but for a gay man like me-  well- next time I will ensure I really DO select a proper French Film!
