Critic Reviews for Sink or Swim (Le grand bain)

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (4)

Selling a tragic-to-triumphant story arc repurposed from any number of similar crowd-pleasers, Lellouche is blessed with seasoned actors who know how to charm.

September 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The film boldly goes where no French film has gone before and with enough humour and heart to defuse such ungenerous thinking. Yes, it's a bit wet, but what else could it be?

July 16, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

As harmless as it is silly, but dampened by idle gags, empty characterization and an inordinate two-hour runtime.

Top Critic

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

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Like the nearly-identical British comedy "Swimming with Men," this "Full Monty" homage is a well-acted time-killer, nothing more.

September 29, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Contrived, heavy-handed and underwhelming in spite of its charismatic cast. The filmmakers try too hard to please the audience without trusting their intelligence nor their emotions enough.

September 27, 2019 | Rating: 5.45/10 | Full Review…
