We’ve rounded up 10 great TV and film swimming pool scenes, including some hilarious, sexy and very moving moments for you to enjoy…
The Sopranos: A gangster with a heart
In the award winning series The Sopranos (1999-2007) there’s sex, violence, betrayal and all manner of dramatic goings on, but perhaps one of the most poignant scenes takes place in Tony Soprano’s garden when the Mafia murderer finds himself strangely touched by a family of ducks who make themselves at home in his swimming pool.
Romeo and Juliet: Wet kisses
The 1996 film version of Romeo and Juliet had one thing that the stage version never managed to show: the two lovers getting it on in a swimming pool. Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes get wet and wild over Shakespeare.
The Graduate: Coming of age in a pool
The family pool in this classic 1967 movie is the venue for Ben (played by Dustin Hoffman) to have his disastrous 21st birthday party.
Skyfall: Night-time swimming
Daniel Craig as James Bond, takes a late-night dip in a luxurious pool on the top of an office block. The pool looks great, the view looks great and Daniel Craig is also in pretty good shape in this 2012 film.
Breaking Bad: Time to take your clothes off?
>Married to a dying illegal drug manufacturer who refuses to listen to you? The pool might seem an inviting place to walk straight into, fully dressed, at a painful family barbecue. Go Skylar! One of the most wonderful things about the TV series Breaking Bad (2008-2013) is, perhaps, not that we see how a man on the brink of death behaves, but how even a humble chemistry teacher in America can afford a pool in his backyard
Meet the Parents: Whoops!
Ben Stiller and Robert de Niro play a game of pool volleyball in this hectic film from the year 2000. And family rivalry gets completely out of hand.
Oblivion: Naked night dives
A 2013 film which received mixed reviews, it involved a complex plot featuring the destruction of the earth, aliens and mind implants. But it had lots of great special effects and a scene where Tom Cruise and Andrea Riseborough get together in a pool at night.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Letting go
Suspenders, basques and and stockings and cross dressing, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) was a camp send-up of all those old Dracula films. In this scene, the cross dressing cast, led by Frank-N-Furter (played by Tim Curry) jump into the pool and indulge in an orgy of sensuality.
Land of the Lost: The Whackiest pool scene, ever?
In one of the most bizarre pool scenes in the movies, Will Ferrell and Anna Friel go through a space time vortex and find themselves in a motel pool, with a primitive apeman who persuades them to drink narcotic drugs.
Mr Bean at the swimming pool: Bless him!
Not for anyone with a phobia of heights, this famous scene of Mr Bean (1990-1995), played by Rowan Atkinson at a public swimming pool is, of course, painful.
