The Swimsuit Issue ★★★

"The Swimsuit Issue" is an enjoyable, entertaining, and somewhat educational drama comedy about a group of middle-aged men who take up synchronized swimming and eventually decide to compete in the world championships. The characters are believable enough, although some of them are underdeveloped. There is chemistry between the actors, and they give good performances, both in and out of the water. The weakest part of the film is the unconvincing depiction of the main character’s family situation. While it is not laugh-out-loud funny, this feel-good movie makes the viewer smile and chuckle.
