Without a doubt, this calls for some serious undercover teamwork action, as the badgeless heroes in spandex comb the beach for shady newcomers and nefarious entrepreneurs with hidden agendas of their own. Can Mitch’s band save the bay?

Yes, you’re all very, very attractive, can we have something else too please?
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
It has a couple of decent moments, but ‘Baywatch’ is mostly uninspiring.
For a comedy, it takes itself way too seriously in parts. None of the heartfelt stuff really lands, while a lot of the humour is over reliant on sexual innuendo. The premise is followable, if entirely predictable. The cast is oversized, way too many characters. Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are good enough in their respective roles as Mitch and Matt.
Summer (Alexandra Daddario) and Victoria (Priyanka Chopra) are alright but underdeveloped, as is Stephanie (Ilfenesh Hadera). C. J. (Kelly Rohrbach) and Ronnie (Jon Bass), meanwhile, are annoying and extremely pointless. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Ellerbee) is solid in a small role.
I’ve never watched the original television series so maybe I missed a few callbacks etc., while there are two (incredibly forced) cameos from it. If it stayed at what it should be – a comedy – then I may have liked this, I simply didn’t though.
Not terrible, but I still wouldn’t say you should rush to see this.
Baywatch is Uneven and Silly but It’s Also Funny and Entertaining
*Minor Spoilers Ahead* Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) is the head lifeguard and public face of Baywatch. He takes his job seriously and he not only saves lives but he’s also beloved by everyone on the beach. The story picks up on a day where new recruits are trying out to enter Baywatch’s training program. We meet a few of the possible finalists, they range from the enthusiastic Summer Quinn (Alexandra Daddario) to underdog Ronnie Greenbaum (John Bass). He’s a regular on the beach but he spends his time drooling over lifeguard CJ Parker (Kelly Rohrback). Another potential lifeguard, Matt Brody (Zach Efron) is a former 2 time Olympic gold- medallist who has fallen on hard times. The head of the Baywatch program; Captain Thorpe (Rob Huebel) is shoving Brody down Buchannon’s throat as he’s only available to them through Brody’s community service. Adding to Buchannon’s troubles is business mogul Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra). She’s swiftly gaining more power in the Bay area through her newly purchased club. Will Mitch be able to properly indoctrinate his chosen recruits and get to the bottom of Victoria’s shady behaviour?
I got to see Baywatch early through an advance screening. The success of the original Baywatch was something that didn’t make sense. The show was before my time but it was regularly mocked for being extremely cheesy. People often used it as an excuse to check out Pamela Anderson and Yasmine Bleeth. So the 2017 movie version of Baywatch has to pay tribute to the source material yet update this story for a new generation. I’m happy to say that Baywatch has no problem making fun of it’s roots and they often come up with creative ways to do it. They aren’t quite as meta but the constant slow- motion running and these lifeguards working outside their job descriptions are repeatedly mocked and skewered. The overall plot is outlandish and ridiculous but the movie doesn’t sidestep that issue, it addresses it continuously and has fun making fun of it alongside the audience. Does the movie drift too far into implausibility? Absolutely but you can’t take this movie seriously. It completely unravels if you do. This isn’t an issue just for Baywatch. If a movie can acknowledge how unrealistic it is, I can try to go along with it and Baywatch had the good sense to do this.
I really liked most of the marketing for Baywatch but the movie I got to watch was different from what I expected. The trailers billed this as more of a straight comedy but this ended up being more of an action/comedy. The action in this is decent, the movie is pretty fetishistic for slow-motion but I would still give it a passing grade. They luckily keep most of it light and it largely looks good (minus some pretty bad looking CGI fire). But the reason to see this is the comedy. The movie relies on gross-out humour a little too much at points but the comedic dialogue was really solid and the theatre I saw it in was laughing throughout the movie. The strong chemistry between Dwayne and Zac helps and while I had some small issues with the jokes, I thought they were pretty good.
This movie has a big and admittedly attractive cast that help this movie skirt around narrative issues. Dwayne is his normal charismatic self and his likable demeanour is key for this movie working. Zac shows again that he’s an underrated comedic actor and he’s really strong with The Rock and by himself. Kelly Rohrbach is funny but even the movie makes no bones about how she’s there because of stunning she is. I liked Alexandra and Ilfenesh, both were good but the movie didn’t give either of them much to do. I was kind of mixed on Jon Bass and I liked Hannibal Burress in his role. If someone surprised me it was Priyanka Chopra. Her character of Victoria is really cliché and the movie seemed almost determined to make you roll your eyes whenever the story moves back to her. But through her ability and her charisma, she takes a lacklustre character and actually delivers a memorable performance.
Getting to what I didn’t like about Baywatch, the biggest thing is that the movie can’t seem to quit while they’re ahead. They fail to realize when to move away from certain jokes and they’re guilty of this more than a few times. This is especially evident when you focus on Ronnie. Jon Bass is funny as this character but his awkwardness is dialed up so much that they run his material into the ground almost every time. It’s also a little hard to determine how much Baywatch wants to be taken seriously. The movie goes for straight slapstick and then they will suddenly launch into how the Bay is in serious jeopardy without any transition. That kind of tonal switch can be done but they just couldn’t sell it completely.
This movie faces an uphill battle because it will be compared to cinematic success stories like 21 and 22 Jump Street. More recently, you also had the re-imagining of CHIPS. Does Baywatch hit that extremely high bar set by the Jump Street franchise? No but it also laps CHIPS pretty easily. The comparison to 21 Jump Street is fair with this being in the same genre but I feel like people forget how special those movies were. Jump Street came out of nowhere and they achieved universal acclaim when you just don’t get that for comedies. Baywatch can’t completely distract from how ridiculous the plot is and the movie needed a tighter edit. But the movie is really funny, it features a good cast of actors/actresses that sell out for it and the movie does a good job celebrating/making fun of it’s source material. I might be in the minority for this one but I’d give it a 7.5/10 rounding up to an 8/10.
Cringeworthy Childish Humour
For the first time I actually walked out of a film before the end.
The humour is infantile, so stupid I was embarrassed for the actors.
This film is just beautiful bodies wandering about hoping it makes an entertaining film.
Clear proof you can’t make a silk purse, no matter how many beautiful people you use, out of a rotting, festering, maggot ridden pigs ear written by talentless chimps.
Complete waste of time and money 0.5/10
Suspicious of the many 10/10 ratings, given by first time reviewers/new reviewers. Confirms suspicions Studios try to promote their films with bogus reviews.
