Swimming With Men trailer: Rob Brydon dives into the deep end
Comedian Rob Brydon is more well known for his TV work in Britain with the occasional foray onto the big screen with Steve Coogan when The Trip is cut down into movie form. Swimming With Men sees him take the lead role in a light-hearted comedy that definitely has shades of The Full Monty. Not many laughs in the trailer but take a look above and see what you think.
Faced with a full-blown mid-life crisis, accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) joins an all-male group of synchronised swimmers and discovers that making patterns in a pool can, for a couple of hours at least, gives him escapism from the bumps in his work and marriage. Initially keeping their personal lives in the locker, the ramshackle squad and coach Susan slowly begin to reveal their inner lives, as well as their paunches. But can they get their routines, not to mention their lives, in sync as they embark on an unlikely journey to Milan to compete in the World Championship?
Oliver Parker (St. Trinian's , Johnny English Reborn, Dorian Gray) directs, with the cast also featuring Adeel Akhtar, Jim Carter, Rupert Graves, Thomas Turgoose, Charlotte Riley, Jane Horrocks and Nathaniel Parker.
Swimming With Men dives into UK cinemas on July 6th 2018.
