The overnight story of Competition, Love and Friendship of innocent men.
At a high school in Hua hin, Nam (Ngern Anupart) is a talented swimmer, but he barely practices. A hot and handsome young man whit an athletic body, Nam likes to party and has a lot of girlfriends. Everyone is jealous of him and everyone knows that he watches porn every day as if it’s his sleeping pill. His father, swimmingcoach Neung (Two Noppon), found out one secret about Nam and they haven't been getting along well ever since. Enter Nine (New Assavapat), a bright student who is about to take an exam of Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School, but doesn’t know how to swim. He asks Nam to teach him and in exchange he'll be doing Nam’s homework and tutor him. However, Nine wants something more than just swimming lessons...
Then one day Muek (Beam Prapangkorn), a young swimmer who was forced by his father to come to Hua hin for 3 months, becomes Nam’s new roommate. But Nam doesn’t want to watch porn anymore after his arrival …They have to live, sleep, eat, practice together... Meanwhile Muek’s girlfriend, Nune ( Book Olive), a rising actress, wants to surprise him at the dorm and, to her delight, Nam allows her to stay there.
In this love competition, Nam, Muek and Nune... who will eventually be the last man standing and fighting for Love?
Cast & Credits
I liked that it was a slow burn so that we can appreciate all the little moments and the realisation without directly going to the "I love him".
It just felt really refreshing, and made me smile and laugh and cry with them. I highly recommend !
Still, this film is far from perfect. It seems like a cluster of different scenes which doesn't always make sense. The cause-and-effect relationship is not always tangible. Sometimes, I had problems understanding characters' decisions. Having said that, I still think the film is worth watching. There's time for the laugh and time for the tears. I enjoyed most of the scenes thanks to the amazing actors.
I really think the actors are the best asset of Water Boyy, especially Ngern and Beam who played lead characters. I simply loved their chemistry, the way they looked at each other etc. Other swimming club members were so lovely and boisterous. I enjoyed every scene with them. Nam's family and Nune weren't that bad either.
Music wasn't that memorable (except the theme song), but it suited certain scenes. Sound effects were mostly fine, but some were completely unnecessary. On the other hand, I liked the scenography and warm colours of the frames. The film's so colourful that it's pleasant to watch.
Even though I think Water Boyy the Series has a better writing and pace, BL pairing lacks chemistry which made Water Boyy the Movie so good. Again, not perfect, not marvellous, simply good and enjoyable. Most importantly, I couldn't stop smiling after I'd watched the whole film and I think it's all you need to know.
