Swimming with Men (2018)



Critic Consensus: Swimming with Men touches on thought-provoking themes surrounding modern masculinity, but ultimately never manages to do much more than tread water.

Movie Info

His job is a drag, his wife may be cheating on him, and he's not getting any younger. Accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) 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 and self-worth 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. And they've set their sights on the ultimate prize: the world championship. Showcasing the sharp wit of The Trip series' Rob Brydon, Swimming With Men is a big-hearted, delightfully offbeat ode to answering your calling, no matter where you are in life.

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (19)

It's a film for blokes who seek a bit of undemanding light entertainment.

March 22, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a sweet idea for a comedy, and it almost convinces you that it's as funny as it wants to be...It's hard to pick what's missing, but something certainly is.

March 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There is nothing remarkable or consequential about it, but it's not a waste of time, either.

Top Critic

The ensemble work among the group of actors in Swimming With Men is very strong, with humorous asides, joshing, and banter that feels spontaneous (they are all very funny actors). But the film doesn't invest in them emotionally.

You don't need a pair of diving goggles to see where all this is going.

December 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Although the film has no grand cinematic ambitions, its unsensationalized focus on these aging bodies invites welcome kindness.
