Storyline

In the wake of a wild bachelor party, Fredrik discovers his passion for synchronized swimming.

Written by Palm Springs International Film Festival

For Enthusiasts Of Swedish Cinema Only

Just like the Swedish films "Patrik Age 1.5" and "The Square" - "The Swimsuit Issue" is yet another picture from that country that I found to be overwhelmingly disappointing and, yes, downright boring, as well.

I thought that this movie's story-line was so irritatingly contrived and the actors' performances so annoyingly self-conscious that it took all of the patience that I could possibly muster in order to sit through it from start to finish.

(IMO) - "The Swimsuit Issue" had "Made-For-TV-Movie" written all over it.
