Throwback Thursday-Swimfan (2002)

Stupid mistakes are part of life. The question is, what will the consequences of those mistakes be?

In the 2002 movie, Swimfan, Ben Cronin (Jesse Bradford) has it all. A promising swimming career, a past that is behind him and a solid relationship with his girlfriend, Amy Miller (Shiri Appleby). Then he has a one night stand with Madison Bell (Erika Christensen).  Ben tries to make it clear to Madison that he has a girlfriend and is not interested in her, but Madison does not seem to care. She only wants Ben and will say and do anything to have him.

 

This movie is best described as Fatal Attraction set in high school. It’s not entirely bad, but the narrative and characters are a little cliche for me.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
