Swinging with the Finkels revolves around two London couples whose sex lives have plateaued. Alvin and Ellie (Mandy Moore), whose relationship is at the nine-year mark, blame their rough patch on fatigue and complacency. Their best friends, Peter (Jonathan Silverman) and Janet (Melissa George), are dealing with the same issues, but with two children, the unraveling of their romance seems more legitimate. The film doesn’t initially waste much time developing these relationships, preferring to set up their affairs with flatlining dinner jokes about male urges and sexual proclivities. Yet very few of these jokes are delivered with a sense of inflection or timing (except for an overzealous sight gag, which I’ll get to). They just roll out to the audience, sputtering and feeble.
