Inspired by such 'pick yourself up by your bootstraps' British comedies like The Full Monty and Calendar Girls, this cute comedy deftly mixes slapstick with insights on such issues as gender rivalry and the unfashionable appearance of middle-aged men in swimsuits! Unemployed, divorced, and estranged from his daughter, Frederik (Jonas Inde) is stuck in Loserville with no hope of getting back on the right track. However, his luck changes when a botched prank gives him the idea to mold his motley buddies into Sweden's only all-male synchronized-swimming team, with the World Cup finals in Berlin as the seemingly unattainable goal. Funny, charming and totally unconventional, The Swimsuit Issue is the complete feel-good package for everyone, bringing out the synchronized-swimmer in all of us.
Saw it on Netflix and had to give it to an ex-synchronize swimmer. Very charming.Published 4 months ago by Nancy L. Carlile
I'm a sucker for anything about a strained familial relationship with a parent and child healed. The swimsuits,a bonus.
Funny and sweet.
I love this movie. Love, love, love. But I speak Swedish. I don't need the subtitles. BUT I CAN'T TURN THEM OFF. Forgive my rage, but this is so frustrating!Published on July 25, 2012 by Swedish Am
