    Eric thanks. Thats the criteria I normally use. If everyone says its rubbish then for me its normally great. I have to see it anyway after just having sat through the Sarah Connor chronicles.

    When I went I didn't actually realise she was going to fetch them out with such gusto. She spends virtually the first half of the film in the nip. It goes downhill later though, unless prison garb and that strange frosty old age make-up they do turns you on.

    Anyway, I chose to see it over Wolverine, Star Trek and Hanna Montana because I was a grown adult attending the cinema without a child in tow.

    I can't beleive i asked about going to see StarTrek now,

    honourable mention goes to Showgirls where saved by the bell turns into an epileptic lovemaking dolphin swishing all over twin peaks

I also like that scene in 'Caddyshack' when everyone sees a nutty choc bar in the pool and thinks it's excrement and they're all like 'Woah!' & 'WTF' and jump out and stuff. That really happened in a swimming class I attended, but it really was shit. Michael Dann done it.
    The scene in the pool at the end of 'Let the right one in' is wonderful and hilarious, in a savage vampire retribution kind of way......

    It's a German lido, which everyone knows are the best lidos. It's used to symbolise the carefree youth the hero is losing while he's knobbing an older Frau. Not that blue, though. It looked a bit peaty to me.

    That French one I've Loeved You So Long with Kristin Scott Thomas has a blue indoor pool and is a pretty good film until the end. I believe it symbolises the amniotic sac that Kristin and her sister shared.

    My favourite swimming pool scene is in Boogie Nights. Pretty much all the No Petting, No Bombing rules are broken in that one.

    Thank Christ for them - her films would be inordinately dull without them.

    Well I managed to wangle my way out of the Star Trek film and went to see Kate Winslet's Knockers, erm , The Reader instead.

    He'd obviously been heavily influenced by that long night round at Gogol's, eating pringles and watching Tolstoy's new "Columbo" 4 DVD box-set.

    That's easy, my favourites are films with significant amounts of time spent in or around swimming pools: The Swimmer, La Piscine, The Graduate.

    After that comes films with nice scenes in swimming pools: that scene in Kids, that scene in Romeo & Juliet.

    Even nicely shot water can rescue otherwise turgid films, for example the scene with all the water rushing down the corridors in Titanic. The terrible modern version of The Count of Monte Cristo was saved by a very nice looking rock pool.

    I've not seen enough submarine films but I suspect there's some signifcant overlap between these two genres. Someone should write a book.

    Please note, I am NOT talking about underwater photography, although I do like that as well.
