Swim Team (1979)

Swim Team is the sort of film you can watch out of the corner of your eye and still see too much. Stephen ‘Flounder’ Furst of Animal House fame provides fat comic relief and adding the sole note of credibility to this less dead in the water project. It’s a PG rated low-ball sex comedy, that lacks in sex and comedy and begs the question, “Which is more heinous, to offend or bore?” This film choses to do the later and it’s no wonder that its fate was resigned to the fifty-cent bin of a thrift store.

On particularly esoteric side note, I do believe the poster design is very indicative of the one done for Gums. Perhaps there is a poster artist who specializes in aquatic comedies?
