MST3K: "And the incentive to stay up is... crocodiles!"
18 September 2010 | by ackstasisSee all my reviews

I must admit (somewhat grudgingly) that 'Aquatic Wizards (1955)' does feature some pretty decent water-skiing moves – this coming from somebody whose fastest water-borne adventure took place in a canoe. However, one must question the wisdom of towing 6-year-olds into the centre of a large body of water, without life jackets, and leaving them at the whim of Poseidon. The moral of this eight-minute educational short is that water-skiing is within the reach of the common man, or woman, or child, regardless of age, sex, or taste in bathing suits. There are a few spectacular stacks, slow-motion tricks, and attractive women. What's to hate? Perhaps the film does lose some of its "molentum" by the end of its running-time, and there's not nearly enough shots of innocent little children face-planting themselves into the lake... but we take solace in the knowledge that most of those children probably couldn't swim. That's the beauty of the 1950s.
