Movie Info

Having met at University, American born Ellie (Mandy Moore) and her husband Alvin (Martin Freeman) are several years into their marriage. The heady sparks of lust and fun have sadly faded and they're left with the day to day normality of their everyday life. Advised by best friends Peter (Jonathan Silverman) and Janet (Melissa George), Ellie and Alvin are desperate to 'spice things up'. Having explored various options, Ellie hits upon the brilliant idea to mix things up with another couple - to have a 'consensual affair' within the confines of the marriage. -- (C) Freestyle

Critic Reviews for Swinging With The Finkels

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

Marriage, in the film, is the necessary evil we all must figure out how to endure in order to be happy or, at least, feel normal.

August 24, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A contempo contribution to the august British tradition of lame, unfunny sex comedies.

June 20, 2011

The film tries for a kind of pawky comedy that tells some kind of truth. But a mediocre screenplay doesn't help and only a few moments work as well as they might.

June 17, 2011

Short of having a urethral swab or inserting a cucumber up yourself, it's hard to imagine a more queasy form of torture than this dismal British sex comedy - about a man who has a urethral swab and a woman who inserts a cucumber up herself.

Top Critic

You wouldn't wish the supporting cast on a film made by your worst enemy. They include the dad from the sixth Beethoven movie (yeah - somehow they got him), Angus Deayton with his bum hanging out, the mummified remains of Jerry Stiller.

June 12, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The film features one-dimensional, married characters who lack distinctive personalities, and fails to include a backstory that proves they ever had any chemistry together.

Audience Reviews for Swinging With The Finkels

Can't believe I sat through this, nearly gave up on it very early on. Melissa George is especially horrid in this one. Lost half a star for the scene of her with her breast pump. Character is also crude, vulgar and repellant. Mandy Moore fares a little better, but she and the husband have zero chemistry. He looks like her father in the flashbacks of them dating. And wouldn't you know it, my all time "favourite" happy ending in the movie. That one never gets old.

Unfunny to the point of utter boredom. Martin freeman is funny at times but the film in general seems terribly forced. The whole tone of the film is quite odd and when it should be funny it is serious and off putting. A large cast is wasted and a potential comedy is ruined by lack of focus.
