Sink or Swim (Le Grand Bain)

A group of 40-something guys form a first men's synchronised swimming team in this French midlife crisis ensemble comedy. Braving the skepticism and ridicule of onlookers, and trained by a fallen champion trying to pull herself together, the group set out on an unlikely adventure.

French actor-turned-director Gilles Lellouche delivers an amiable comedy drama, set in the world of all-male synchronised swimming. With plenty of heart, the top-tier middle-aged cast lend the witty, if predictable, story much needed sparkle.

Not quite The Full Monty, but Sink or Swim is no half-baked premise either.

A sluggish two hours that delivers only in a triumphant final act that's as improbable as it is inevitable.
