The Shiny Shrimps 15 rating

After making a homophobic remark on live TV, an Olympic champion swimmer is given a chance at redemption by coaching a water polo team to the world’s biggest LGBTQ+ sporting event, the Gay Games.

Comedy 2018 103 mins

Director: Cédric Le Gallo

Overview

Water polo team The Shiny Shrimps have little hope of achieving their goal to compete in the world’s biggest LGBTQ+ sporting event, the Gay Games. Their undisciplined behaviour (in and out of the pool) has team captain Jean searching for a new coach to whip the shrimps into shape. He arrives in the form of World Silver Medalist swimmer Matthias Le Goff who, after making a homophobic remark on live TV, is offered redemption by means of training and reigning in the flamboyant Shrimps.

The Shiny Shrimps, however, have other ideas. They prefer partying to serious practice and so, Matthias is forced to reconsider his professional and personal priorities. Should he quit for selfish reasons or hit the road to Croatia with this uncoordinated shoal of water divas and ensure that The Shiny Shrimps become Queens Of The Pool.
