Baywatch

Comedy Action


 

As the Baywatch division begin their annual recruit for new lifeguards, a criminal syndicate threatens the beach.

The best thing to be said about "Baywatch" is that it isn't terrible. It would have been a bigger disaster if the film took itself seriously, but thankfully the broad and beautiful crew deliver the often questionable humour with great verve. There are some laugh out loud moments, although too infrequent to preserve interest in a shallow story stretched way beyond its limits. Much like the TV series that came before it, this franchise simply relies on the muscle of the cast, and the opportunities it provides to ogle their 'charm' and 'physical perfections'. Not worth the watch.
