Comment: Some Soccer boys in I think shiny, plain white shorts. Also some sitting in the background. There were also commercials of other sports including hurdles (man in shiny yellow 70s shorts in 1989) and maybe some more. Most other sports (including Handball) has people in long pants. Swimming in speedos.

I found 2 clips on YouTube, one in bad (this one) and one in very bad and darker image quality. Maybe there are more (untitled) commercial compilations including this as well? I somewhere have it partly on VHS but I think the end (from a distance) only.

One handsome boy with spiked hair (headshot). Also shown Otto Rehagel.

Rating 4-5.

Comment: Some Soccer boys and teen boys in many different colored shorts including yellow, white, red, blue and black.

I think few and brief scenes only. Novel by Gina Basso. I think not on DVD.

I’m still searching for my Italian coming of age movie.

Rating 4-5 for this one.

Comment: Some boys in longer, modern shorts including medium and dark blue, orange and black and also at least 2 boys shirtless in swim shorts (medium blue and black). Scenes at 15 and 17 minutes.

Rating 4-5 only.

Few and brief scenes and I prefer shorter shorts. Swim shorts are even worse. So rating 4 instead of 5. There are better movies.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and my bedroom blog, rating 6 as well.

Comment: Some young Soccer boys and girls (1st graders?) in yellow and white shorts. At least one with the drawstring outside. I think few and rather brief scenes at 1h10.

Also soon on my bib overalls blog (girls rating 4).

I like Tim Allen and Home Improvement (rating 7), but I don’t like this movie.

Very young kids and few scenes, but better than none as this is a Christmas movie.

So rating 4-5 only. I don’t assume shorts scenes in the sequels.

Update: 7th Heaven

7thheaven

I found the scene of 12 yo Simon (David Gallagher) wearing these medium blue, longer swim shorts. Also shirtless at a pool in s2e10 (1997). I think also wet and sitting. Ruthie first learns to swim in a bathtub.

Not that bad, but I think a rather short scene. So rating 4-5 as well.

Main entry, rating 4 showing 14 yo Mary and other teen girls playing Basketball at

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Also on my Western blog (rating 4).

Comment:
A shirtless boy standing and sitting in light blue shorts. Pic from the trailer. Also other boys in shorts including dark blue, green and white with stripes. And men also in swim shorts with a belt. One boy in shorts with H-style suspenders.

The setting looks modern, but it’s obviously in 1944 as there are also other people in historical swimwear shown. So most likely not of shiny fabric but cotton. (Sorry, I’ve seen that too late).

But the movie looks still quite interesting. But I haven’t seen it completely, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Original title: Đavolji raj – Ljeto bijelih ruža. English title: That Summer of White Roses.

Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.
