Update: Mees Kees langs de lijn


Nice, medium blue shorts with yellow border and at least some of the dark blue shorts are from Adidas with red stripes (pic 1 on the left). Girls in black shorts like the goalkeeper but not or not that shiny.

The series Mees Kees (2017) also has to be checked completely (currently running).

Mees Kees op de planken also has to be added (very few swimming scenes and most shorts are probably board shorts. At least one boy in shorter, maybe shiny red shorts.

English title: Mister Twister at the Pitch.

Main entry, previously rating 3, now rather ~5

Comment: Josh Hutcherson in modern, longer grey shorts with black sides. Maybe Basketball shorts, not sure about the brand. Some very good scenes including lying and sitting scenes.

From my bedroom blog. I thought, I already had and entry here.

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: Boys and girls in different kind of sports in shiny shorts, mainly Adidas.

Searching for a different movie of this band, I found some short clips on YouTube by coincidence.

Pic 1 showing 2 girls in shiny white Adidas shorts with matching shirts (big logo). Boys in red and white Adidas shorts, also blue shorts (unknown if Adidas). One chubby boy playing Tennis in white Adidas shorts. Other sports like PE and swimming. Swimming unknown if just speedos.

Needs to be rechecked as I don’t know the complete movie. Also other movies of them. One clip has slow-mo scenes. Movie is part 5 of 7 in this movie series. DVD might be OOP.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: 3 boys shirtless and wet in different shorts. Most notably one younger boy in medium blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs). One older boy in longer black shorts and the other boy in tight, dark blue (?) shorts. 2 girls, but not in shorts.

Quite interesting but rather few good scenes, also sitting and also coming out of the water. Very briefly and also dark lit back lit scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, man, brief scenes, rating 2).

Unfortunately only a brief scene but not bad.

So rating 5-6.


Update: Hang Time (1995)


I found some more and even better scenes in this series. Most notable some younger boys in s3e20 in different coloured shorts including black, dark blue, light blue and yellow (pic 1). Maybe not all are shiny. Also a teen girl in dark blue or black shorts and light blue and white parts (also close-up).

The older teen boys in light blue shorts in several episodes (pic 2 from s1e13).

Unpictured: Dark blue and light blue shorts in s2e7, white shorts in s3e22 and several other shorts in s1e5 including a teen girl in purple ones. And a teen girl in black shorts in s4e1 (2 thick stripes).

Sitting scenes of teen boys and a teen girl in s3e23.

Also updates on my bib overalls blog (females, rating 4). Main entry here, now rating 5 instead of 4

Comment: Some teen boys playing Soccer in different shorts. Mainly shown teams in medium blue shorts with 2 yellow boarder stripes (pic 2 probably Theodore Borders), other team in black. Ben Foster as main character Tucker in dark green and black shorts (goalkeeper).

While warming up, one teen boy in yellow and one in red shorts. One black shorts has yellow parts. All pics from ep 15.

Also on my bib overalls blog, (teen ) girls, rating 5.

Some interesting shorts. But rather few good scenes. And I don’t like Tucker.

So rating 5 only.

Comment: Several young men and also some young boys in shiny shorts. A young man in white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes. One other man in yellow shorts, also interesting a man in dark green or black shorts (pic 2 on the far right with 2 short horizontal stripes). And a man in dark blue 70s style shorts with red boarders.

Young boys at least in black, dark green and light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

I’m currently rechecking older entries of my bib overalls blog. (Rating 3)

I don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it, especially for teens and women. The earlier Jaws parts are definitely much better (coming later) but don’t have 80s shorts.

So rating 4-5 for now only.
