5 Of The Greatest Swimming Pool Scenes

5 Of The Greatest Swimming Pool Scenes


There’s no shortage of swimming pool scenes in movies and on TV. Swimming pools are the perfect place for celebrations to occur, for scary nightmarish creatures to creep up, for romantic interludes, for expressing anger through pushing people in, and for so much more. So, it’s no surprise that swimming pool scenes would be found everywhere and anywhere. That’s why there are so many great lists that give us a chance to take a stroll down memory lane. We’ve pulled a few of our favorites at Crystal Clear Pools and Spas from ShortList for your enjoyment. And… when you’re ready to enjoy your pool, remember us! Crystal Clear Pools and Spas builds, renovates, cleans, and maintains your swimming pool so you can then make your pool your favorite living space.


A wonderful swimming pool scene from a truly heartwarming film. The moment the camera cuts to Largeman’s friends watching him attempt to swim is superb. Interestingly the fog was not there for effect. The site was originally chosen because the Manhattan Skyline was clearly visible but it just happened to be incredibly foggy on the day of filming. (Jump to 1 min 20).



In the DVD commentary, director Amy Heckerling tells of how Phoebe Cates was initially reluctant to carry out her character’s poolside topless scene at the house in West Hills because she thought the neighbours might be spying on the set from the surrounding rooftops.



Having read the script Jesse Eisenberg wasn’t sure about just one scene. This one. Originally Zuckerberg, instead of just filming it, was supposed to join in, hurling himself off the roof. Eisenberg couldn’t imagine Zuckerberg having that kind of fun, but by the time it came to shooting he was relieved that the script had been changed so he stayed behind the camera, dishing out low scores.



It’s a cold heart that doesn’t chuckle throughout this scene. “It’s only a game , Focker!”. Glorious stuff.



Reams and reams have been written about the significance of Ben’s swimming pool. That it’s symbolic of the womb, that his inflatable lounger provides the transport between childhood and adulthood. We don’t know about that. All we know is that the pool is a vehicle for cool and this scene is the pick of the bunch.


Which is your favorite swimming pool scene of the ones we listed? Is there one missing that’s an absolute favorite of yours?

What do you use your swimming pool for? Is it for scaring friends and family? Celebrating milestones and holidays? Romantic moments? Pushing those you love (and, perhaps those you don’t) into your swimming pool? Regardless of how you use your pool, Crystal Clear Pools and Spas is here for you to make certain that your swimming pool is ready for the fun, relaxation, and everything and anything else.
