Update: Respiro (2002)


I still hadn’t the time to check the complete DVD at slow speed, but checked many scenes including the making-of.

There’s also 12 yo Filippo Pucillo as younger brother of Pasquale in shiny white (or cream) and also yellow shorts. Scene at 45 minutes.

In the fighting scene at 36 minutes there is also at least one younger boy in green shiny shorts (with a white stripe) and as announced one or two in beige shorts. One with a red stripe and leg boarders. The light blue one with a dark blue stripe and also Filippo’s and maybe the light grey and dark blue ones are maybe the same brand. Also one or two in black. Some shorts are not shiny including light red and  jeans shorts. Many shorts of the older teen boys are longer (dark blue, black, yellow) than those of the younger boys.

Main entry, still rating 9 at



Respiro (2002)

Year: 2002
Year in film: 2000s
Country: Italy, France
Who in shorts: Pasquale ~14, Filippo 12
Who in shorts 2: (teen) boys, men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Clothing occurence: medium
Rating:  9/10
Rating: *********
Comment: Several, mainly teen boys including Francesco Casisa (pics 1+2) and men in shorts, mainly shirtless. Also other interesting scenes and clothes including speedos, underwear and even less.

How on Earth could I forgot this masterpiece? I even own it on DVD for several years. Perfect movie, rating 10. For shorts rating 9-10 for now. I have to recheck the complete movie at slow speed, including the long making of, for more perfect scenes and all colors.

Most notable, of cource, main character Pasquale. Half of the time in shorts, most often in the light blue ones (a bit ripped at the side), and most often shirtless. Also in light red and dark blue shorts but not or not that shiny.

Shirtless in light blue shorts also sitting at the beginning. Oversized yellow shorts later. Pics 3+4 showing a fighting scene at 36 minutes with many (older) teen boys. Very interesting are the medium blue shorts. (Almost) 70s style. Many teen boys and men also shirtless in shorts at the end but mainly from a distance. One younger boy in beige or yellow shorts (coming soon) and some more in white, yellow and blue ones.

Even better are the (wet) speedo and underwear scenes. Undressing the shorts for swimming in the sea (light blue speedo or underwear/briefs underneath). But this blog is about shiny shorts.

Also on my bedroom blog (rating 6).

As said rating 9-10 for now. I prefer Adidas, 70s and 80s setting and younger actors.

Update: also 12 yo Filippo in white and yellow shorts. Also green, beige and black ones in he fighting scene.



Update: Party Camp


As announced some time ago, an update of “Party Camp” (1987), as I forgot several scenes. There are many interesting shorts but not all are shiny. And most teen boys or young men are quite old. Many scenes from a distance.

So, pic 1 showing some grown-ups and kids running including boys ~9 yo and up in blue, beige and colorful shorts.

Pic 2 showing young men in shiny light grey and red shorts (and jeans shorts).

Pic 3 showing a young lady in black shorts.

Unpictured (men running): Tight shorts in medium green (probably shiny), white (probably not shiny) and some more.

Main entry, rating 6 including teen boys, sitting, yellow shorts and Adidas shorts at

Who in shorts 2: men, women
Available on DVD: yes

Clothing occurence: low+?
Rating:  7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie. There are several grown-ups in swimwear and shorts including colorful board shorts, some shirtless including yellow shorts (maybe not shiny). A young lady in black shorts (look shiny) over swimwear at 29 minutes. A shirtless man in yellow shorts undressing them with green speedos underneath.

For younger kids, I first only noticed this young girl in light blue (maybe shiny) shorts (rating 3). Later I found several boys of a rescue team or Boy Scouts in beige shorts at 44 minutes (look shiny to me). Unfortunately a very brief scene. But very interesting. Shiny beige shorts are quite rare.

Needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.

For now, rating 6-7.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 3). Clip of the boys also there.

Private Lessons (1981)

Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: One shirtless pool scene of Eric Brown (left) in beige or similar swim shorts and his fat friend in light green ones, also sitting but poor side view. There should be another scene of Philly in swim shorts at a bathtub, but I have to recheck this one.

Also on my bedroom blog (rating 6).

Interesting movie for these days, but very few shorts scenes and I prefer younger actors.

So rating 5-6 only.

As usual no shirtless and indescent pics.

Update: Big and Hairy


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.

Main entry, previously rated 6, now 7(-8) at



Update: Sleepaway Camp


I considered buying this on DVD (mainly for the younger boy, around 10 yo in white shorts, pic 2), as I only have a bad VHS. Obviously the uncut versions in good image quality are very expensive (50 EUR + shipping), so I have rechecked it again on YouTube.

There’s obviously just one notable and brief scene of the young boy. Not bad, but not worth buying an expensive DVD or BD.

I also found some more actors/colors. Including a girl in shiny yellow shorts, some in white shorts (pic 1), a very young blonde girl in red shorts. And one scene of young boys shirtless at a lake in wet red, blue, green and I think black shiny shorts (mainly Adidas). But all scenes are very brief and from a distance. There are almost all colors of shorts, maybe except purple and orange. One teen girl in dark pink shorts but I think not shiny. I think very few wet scenes.

Also an older teen boy also sitting shirtless in shiny yellow shorts and another one in light blue.

The movie is a classic and very good. Some funny scenes in the cabins. And funny end.

But most boys are quite old. But still maybe around rating 9. Main entry at


I still have to check the sequels.

Comment: One young man in shiny, blue Adidas shorts (white stripes, pics 2+3), one in shiny light grey shorts (dark stripes), 2 men running in red and green shorts, a young woman at a pool in black shorts, some younger boys aged ~9 and up running in different shorts (including blue, beige and colorful), one boy in yellow shorts sitting (not sure if shiny, pic 2) and some other boys and girls sitting in colorful and other shorts (maybe not shiny). A young man in white shorts but probably not shiny (Tennis shorts ?).

I found this by coincidence and have to recheck this more carefully. Sorry I forgot some pics and have to make an update.

Also nice wooden bunk beds. Soon on my other blog.

Rating 6-7 for now. Obviously rather few good scenes of younger actors.

Comment: Basketball playing boys and teen boys in blue, green, red, beige and black shiny shorts.

I had problems finding the title of this movie. I thought of Bigfoot (Harry and the Hendersons, movie and series) but finally I found it.

I don’t remember the complete movie. But it looks very good. Several handsome boys.

I haven’t found the movie online by a quick search and hope for a soon broadcasting. Needs rechecking for shirtless scenes, girls, sitting scenes, more colors and else.

Rating 6-7 for now. Could be higher.

Starring Robert Burke, Trevor Jones and Richard Thomas.

Prevously rated 6, now 7(-8). I even bought it. Also very good beige and black shorts and sitting scenes. Update at

Rating: *********
Comment: Boys, teen boys and teen girls in shiny shorts including Adidas. Some also shirtless and some sitting scenes. Maybe not all shorts are shiny. Swimming scenes of a young boy shirtless in medium blue swim shorts at the beginning.

Very good camp movie. I even purchased it on VHS but rarely watch it. So I have to recheck it again. For all colors, women, younger girls and wet scenes. Same for the sequels.

Many colors of the shorts including red, blue, black, beige. Not shiny probably white, blue, yellow, light grey, jeans shorts and probably some more. Teen girls in light green, blue, light green (Adidas), red and pink.

Rating 9-10 for now. First beige entry. I like camp movies. Unfortunately most boys seems quite old.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (rating ~7).

Update: I also found some few more and also younger boys and girls, also shirtless boy. But very few scenes of younger boys. So rating now maybe 8-9 only, leaving it by 9. New tags white, light blue, yellow, girls.
