Comment: Some Soccer boys in longer light blue and red shorts. Goalkeeper (main character) in black. Most or all wearing long black tights underneath. (Tagging as sweat pants). I almost forgot this movie.

I haven’t seen the complete movie, but obviously only this brief scene at the beginning only.

Available on the ARD mediathek.

Some boys are handsome.

Rating 4 only, due to the brief scene.

Comment: One teen boy, I think Mikkel Bratt Silset (pic 1) sitting in colorful, long board shorts. Also some other boys at an indoor pool including one in oversized medium blue swim or board shorts. Another one in black. I think few and brief scenes near the beginning only and most from a distance.

So rating 4-5 only. Directed by Erik Richter Srand. English title: Sons.

Interesting plot, but there are much better movies. Movie rating also ~4 only.

Comment: Some nice swimming und even underwater scenes of the two or three brothers. Unfortunately few and brief scenes near the beginning only. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies. Please make some suggestions!

14 or 15 yo Michael-James Wixted as David in beige or similar, striped swim shorts, his older film brother (Hart Bochner) in dark blue or green shorts. Not sure about the younger boy, Andrew (Brad Savage, pic below “Salem’s Lot”, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”) who’s sitting in a boat.

Also nice bedroom scenes (other blog, rating 7), will also soon be updated (dorm).

Quite interesting and handsome boys, but for the brief shorts scenes, rating 4-5 only.

Comment: Michael McGreevery (I think the older boy Arthur on the right in blue shorts) and Bill Mumy shirtless in swim shorts. Of course these 60s shorts are not really shiny.

I don’t remember the complete movie.

For shorts, rating 3-4 only. Movie maybe higher. I like Billy Mumy.

Comment: First a young girl in purple shorts (YouTube vid missing upper and lower parts), a lady in tight, silver shiny shorts and some more men, women and boys (partly shirtless) in shorts (mainly board shorts) and or swimwear, but I think mainly or only from a distance.

To those who prefer females. I haven’t noticed any good scenes for me. Typical movie of it’s kind. There are better ones. The silver shorts are rather plastic pants and not really shiny shorts.

So rating 2-3 only.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.

Comment: Redhaired Todd Bosley in medium blue and also in black or similar shiny shorts. Both pairs are, I think oversized. But he also has thin legs. His underwear can be partly seen under his black shorts.

Also a girl in yellow shorts, but not shiny.

Another girl in dark blue shortalls, also a woman in overalls (other blog, rating 5).

Great movie. Handsome blonde boy (Kristopher Kachurak), but I think not in shorts.

Rating 5 for the shorts, much more for the movie itself.

Comment: Some boys in longer shorts, a least 2 in white and 1 in red, also sitting and also shirtless in a locker room. The other shorts are probably not shiny.

Interesting plot and scenes. No entry on IMDb. Directed by Tomás Flichman. Based on an 1961 short story within book Las otras puertas by Abelardo Castillo who recently died. R.I.P.

Rating 6.

Update: Il ritorno del piccolo Lord

ilritornodelpiccololord

I previously don’t had any pics, as I only remember few and brief scenes, mainly in and underwater. Luckily, I now found this pic on an old hard drive, dark blue or black with yellow swim shorts. I don’t remember good scenes of the other (red) shorts.

Not that bad, but very few and brief scenes at the beginning only. Very poor, modern movie remake of Little Lord Fauntleroy. (Rating 1-2).

Main entry, still rating 3-(4) at

Comment: Some boys swimming. One boy shirtless in pink swim shorts, one in yellow, one in white or similar and some in black shorts. Maybe not all are shiny. Also skinny dipping scenes.

Also boys and a girl in sailor suits (other blog, rating 5). Not sure about the time setting due to the sailor suits. Should be after a war and childhood memories of the author. Maybe showing the 1940s and 1980s or the shorts are anachronistic.

English title: Holiday in Expectation of a Holiday, Russian title: Праздник ожидания праздника, 1984 novel by Fazil Iskander (1929-2016).

Some very interesting scenes, but rather few (good) shorts scenes.

Rating 4-5 for shorts, movie rating maybe 6-7.
