    Delightful! 5

    I have received the DVD this week, from my beloved CDJapan, and what a lovely surprise! "Waterboys" is a light-hearted, witty, adorable comedy about these high-school boys that - initially trying to have a go at their new, attractive (female) swimming teacher - end up by forming a synchronised swimming team! Yes, all because the teacher was specialised in synch swim and a bit insecure about teaching in an all-boys school. Thing is, Sensei is pregnant and goes on maternity leave. Meanwhile, they are discovered by the local news and cannot go back now and give up their plans for the school Festival - where they would hold their first presentation. It's funny to see them struggling with their fears and insecurities, and how they end up being "trained" (well, sort of!) by a wacky dolphin trainer guy (Isomura-san), in the local Seaquarium. The humour is light, with some unexpected, hilarious scenes and unforgettable situations. It would look great in manga, I think, for its fast pace, very graphic scenes and daydreaming moments. All in all, if you love fun for the sake of fun, and clever, uncompromised entertainment, you should defo give it a go!

    A good upbeat film 4

    Waterboys is a great comedy film about high school boys forming an all male syncronized swim team. It's as funny as it sounds but it's also a very upbeat and positive film that teaches a good message, you have to try you hardest at anything you do. I'd recomend this to anyone, no movie collection is complete without Waterboys.
