Rating: *****
Comment: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Comment: Per Damgaard Hansen (Per Damgård Hansen), 12 or maybe 13 yo in longer, dark blue, shiny shorts (many scenes). Also at least one girl (?) in black or similar dark shorts with a Basketball. I don’t remember a game though.

I found some parts on one of my VHS tapes and first wasn’t sure about the title.

I have to recheck it more carefully. Typical Scandinavian comedy movie. Book series by Sören Olsson starting in 1984, but setting probably in the present 90s.

Also a teen girl in bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating 6) and a boy in overalls in series “Sunes jul” (rating 4).

Rating 5-6 for now.

Sune i Grekland (2012) has shirtless boys sitting in swim shorts (coming soon).

Comment: Next to the female coach (Cathy Lee Crosby) who wears blue shiny Adidas shorts, there are several Basketball playing older teen boys / young men in medium blue and other teams in green and red shorts (but not Adidas). Also locker room scenes I think also shirtless.

I only have checked this movie at high speed.

The boys (and woman) are quite old. The youngest teen boy is probably around 16.

So rating 4 for now only. Nice 70s shorts though.

Comment: Some Basketball playing boys and teen boys in blue and black shiny shorts. Maybe more in other episodes. Swim shorts / board shorts as well?

Obviously a very rare series. On IMDb there’ even still a wrong poster although someone mentioned it.

I don’t remember much of this series and only found a very brief clip on a VHS.

Produced by Nomad Films, directed by Andrew Prowse and Howard Rubie. (Even these important infos are missing on IMDb). Current rights obvioulsy by Oscorp Ent. Main characters are next to the Walker family, a 14 yo Boy Luke (Shayne Vea) and a 13 yo girl Joanne. Also at least 2 younger boys including Christopher Fare (~ 9 yo).

Rating 5 for now. Also soon on my overalls blog (teen girl rating 6).

Comment: Several High school (varsity) Basketball players, older teen boys and teen girls in different shiny shorts. Often Light blue (2 white stripes, home team ?), also red, yellow, dark blue, white and maybe other colors.

Pic from s1e11. Many good colors at least in s3e11.

I don’t know the complete series.

Teens are very old. So rating 3-4 for now only.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 4. Obviously not on DVD but on YouTube.

Please also note my rare movies list.

Comment: Older teen boys/young men in perfect shiny yellow short Basketball shorts. Also white, medium green and dark blue shiny shorts. Light grey and maybe other white shorts are probably not shiny. Best are definitely the yellow shorts including good rear views and sitting scenes. I didn’t know that there were shiny shorts available in 1951. Maybe rather silk instead of the modern synthetic fabric? First entry tagged 1950s. At least 2 more to come.

The other problem is, that most or all actors of the High School are quite old. I think around 20 yo. According to the plot they should be 17. But is there any actor of that age?

I don’t know the complete movie, yet and hope for a soon broadcasting. Music by Jerry Goldsmith. Also starring Dennis Hopper.

Rating 4 for now only.

 

Update: Big and Hairy

bigandhairy3bigandhairy6

As announced, my first purchase for this blog. I already had an entry, but found an untitled screenshot (pic 1, legs also being spread) and thought of a different movie as there are beige shorts shown. I have a (partial) VHS recording but of course in bad quality. I haven’t found the complete movie online, so I simply bought it.

Next to the blue (home team), red, green and beige Basketball shorts, there are also black ones. There are several Basketball scenes around 9 scenes but they are rather short, maybe less than half of the movie. Only few and brief scenes of the beige shorts at 51 minutes and also only one scene of the green shorts. Red and black 2 scenes each. Blue in all. Some very handsome boys, next to the main character, 12 yo Robert Burke, also other ones, one very similar looking.

Some sitting scenes (mainly background) but no shirtless scenes. Good family film (the Bigfoot is a bit poor but quite funny). Also soon on my bib overalls blog and pigtails blog (rating 3 each).

The DVD I got is luckily a UK PAL RC2 (or RC0 ?) and has a good image quality. By coincidence I made a post today on my bib overalls blog with a movie of the same DVD company called “Feature Films for Families”. Partly a Hallmark production. The DVD is called “Big & Hairy” and shows a close up of Robert Burke, a Basketball with an eye on it and parts of the Bigfoot and the number 1 on a blue shirt.

I will recheck the movie at slow speed and maybe make some more updates.

Rating: ******
Comment: Some Basketball playing boys in typical long, shiny orange shorts, the other team in blue shorts (also sitting).

Polish title: Słoneczna włócznia.

I have seen the series in 2001 but don’t remember everything. I assume rather few Basketball and shorts scenes as this is not the main plot. I don’t like the blonde boy and prefer this time dark hair. Orange shorts are great, but blue is no bad either.

So rating 6-7 for now only.

7th Heaven

Rating: ****
Comment: Jessica Biel as Mary along other teen girls in dark red shiny Basketball shorts, the other team in green shorts. Pic from s1e7. I also remember Simon (David Gallagher) in board shorts or similar (maybe shirtless ?) trying to teach little sister Ruthie to swim (at home and later at an indoor pool). Also early season, maybe in season 1. Maybe more episodes and maybe more actors (teen boys, Basketball as well) ?

I don’t remember all episodes and only have seen seasons 1-6 on TV. But I assume probably rather few good shorts scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (f/m, also shortalls) rating up to 7 and on my bedroom blog rating 6.

Comment: Some, mainly older teen boys and 13 or 14 yo Alex D. Linz (“Home Alone 3”) as 16 yo Alex in blue Basketball shorts, the other team in grey ones.

I don’t remember the complete movie and needs to be rechecked (as usual for sitting, shirtless, other colors etc). Pic from the trailer.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Typical Basketball shorts. Quite older teens. Based on a true story. Setting must be in 1976, but shorts look modern.
