Comment: Some teen boys including Alexander Bainbridge playing Hockey in tight, I think dark blue shorts (yellow sides), other team in white. Shorts are probably not or not that shiny. Only one brief scene. Sebastian also comes closer.

I remember having seen this movie then on TV. Some few quite good scenes like in the bathtub or skinny dipping in the sea and I like the different characters, but there are better movies and I prefer US movies and real shiny shorts not that tight.

So rating ~ 3-4 only.

Also soon on my bedroom blog ~rating 6.

Update: Just for Kicks (2003) brand Score

justforkicks-n2justforkicks-n3

Some new pics of this one. It was difficult to identify some brands, luckily I found a close-up pic. So, the medium blue shorts in the main entry and probably one black pair (pic 4) are from the US brand Score Sports. I think I also have them elsewhere.

As said, the long yellow shorts and the red ones of Dylan (pic 2) are from Adidas. Pic 3 showing Cole in the light blue ones (also sitting but from a distance).

Also interesting the purple shorts, unknown brand, 2 yellow stripes.

Main entry, still rating 6 at

I also identified a logo, which I think had before (maybe in Cebollitas ?). It’s Golddigga.

Comment: Cole and Dylan Sprouse and other boys in mainly longer, medium blue shiny Soccer shorts (also sitting), the other team in longer red shorts (also a team in black ones), goalkeeper in black and also yellow ones. Also at least one boy in yellow shorts outside the field. I think Cole in light blue shorts but not sure if shiny, Dylan in black ones, woman in pink (probably not shiny).

How could I forgot this Soccer movie?

Dylan Sprouse (pictured in glasses, Cole without) also in bib overalls (since 2011 on my bib overalls blog, rating 4).

I haven’t seen this movie for a long time and have to recheck it. Also shirtless and cycling and bunk bed scenes.

I don’t like at all Dylan’s glasses and the boys are quite young, but I think I have to give at least rating 6-7. DVD title: Just 4 Kicks.

Update: I have briefly checked it. More scenes than assumed. Cole or Dylan in red Adidas shorts (brief scene) and the longer yellow shorts (other boy) are also Adidas. I think, I can identify 1 or 2 more brands. Also boys briefly in white and purple shorts. More pics soon. Not sure if it’s worth buying. I think rather few good scenes. Boys are young and mostly not that handsome. Update 2: Brand of medium blue and black is Score Sports.

Comment: Some, mainly younger boys in shorts, most notable these 2 boys in dark blue and dark green shorts. Maybe not shiny as set in the 1960s. Few scenes at 17 minutes. One older boy or young man in black shorts and a teen girl in dark blue shorts.

So rating 3-4 only. Also soon on my bedroom blog.

Comment: At least Armie Hammer in white Adidas shorts with red stripes and inner briefs, including sitting scenes. Also mainly shirtless in other shorts and swim shorts like medium red or similar (wet, 1 black stripe), yellow, medium green, but most or all other shorts are not shiny. The younger boy, ~21 yo Timothée Chalamet as 17 yo Elio also in (colorful) shorts but I think none are shiny.

Thanks for this suggestion. But I don’t like (hairy) men in shorts. Nothing special, like for my other blogs like men in overalls or Cowboys or sailors. And this is not a blog just for Adidas.

And this white ones don’t appear shiny. More of interest are the medium red, sometimes pink appearing wet shorts. But I only have seen pics on IMDb of those.

Maybe an interesting movie and gay plot (80s setting), but I don’t like at all these actors.

Rating ~2 for now only.

Comment: Some boys in different shorts. As the setting is in 1965, most or all shorts are probably not shiny. But some appear as such. Nice light blue shorts.

I bought this DVD several years ago for my bib overalls blog but was very disappointed (rating 2). Lucas Black not appearing in overalls although shown on the cover.

Movie itself is not that bad.

Rating 3-4. I haven’t seen it for years.

Comment: Some boys (including P. David Ebersole) and older teen girls in dark green shorts, not sure if shiny. At least one girl and one boy (not Ebersole) in dark green Adidas shorts. One in 70s shorts (look shiny to me), most others in tight, plain green shorts.

As announced on my updated posts on my bib overalls blog (f/m rating 7), I found some clips on an “official” Facebook site. And so these nice scenes including sitting scenes of the boys (also more close-up).

This movie is 37 minutes (7 songs).

Rating 6-7.

Comment: Now on ZDF. Some young boys in shorts, most notably this boy in medium blue shorts. Probably just a flashback scene at the beginning only. I have briefly checked the rest (at high speed) and haven’t found any other scenes.

Probably 6 yo Laurens Yassemipour as young Martin. He jumps from a cliff in the water. But probably not shown coming out, so not tagged wet.

IMDb title: “Landkrimi: Drachenjungfrau”.

Comment: Alfalfa shirtless in long, red boxer’s shorts and Butch in green ones. Probably not shiny in the 1930s. But the red ones appear sort of shiny.

Colorized version, originally in b&w. 11 minutes.

More movies also on all my other blogs. Like short sailor suits and overalls.

Great series (but not concerning shiny shorts).

So just rating ~3.

Comment: At least this man shirtless in yellow 70s shorts. Not sure if shiny. Pic at 59 minutes. Is this 27 yo Nicholas Hammond? Looks even older.

I found this by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

The man is too old. But yellow is interesting. Maybe someone like it?

So rating 2 only.
