Matthias Le Goff, an Olympic champion at the end of his career, makes a homophobic statement on TV. His punishment: coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyant and amateur gay water-polo team. They have only one thing in mind: to qualify for the Gay Games in Croatia where the hottest international LGBT athletes compete. It's the start of a bumpy and joyful ride - Faster, Higher, Stronger.
Not the most innovative movie. But it works fine. Quite fun, feel-good, cool music, some very good moments, and some that pulls down. What draws down is that it is quite cliché filled with how we gays should look and behave. Most of the characters fill these perceptions of gays, but I shouldn't grumble about that. If you liked The Birdcage and In & Out, you'll probably like this one too.
