“Baywatch” is no day on the beach. Despite lengthy sequences of attractive women and men jogging toward the camera and jiggling in slow motion, and a cool star in Dwayne Johnson, the film is nothing more than a serviceable also-ran in this year’s crop of silly spring movies. While the eye is rewarded (and the ear, with a hit-packed soundtrack), the brain is unfulfilled. To those nostalgic for pop culture, the story has a familiar ring: A hard-nosed veteran (Johnson, largely absent his usual attitude and humor) and a wisecracking rookie (Zac Efron, wide-eyed and mirthlessly peppy) must overcome their differences and unite against common enemies. This time the bromantic relationship isn’t between buddy cops but Florida lifeguards policing their seaside beat.

The film of one of the world’s favourite TV shows is disappointing, with flimsy humour and a meanness of spirit that leaves a foul taste in the mouth The big screen version of what was once the world’s favourite TV show is, like most Hollywood versions of TV favourites, an act of affectionate desecration. The script lovingly sends up the silly cliches and tropes of the show, yet cannot hide a meanness of spirit which makes the whole enterprise seem foul. Is it possible to be disappointed by a film version of Baywatch? Surely with Baywatch the disappointment is built in? Yet honestly, I was. I thought the cast had promise and the premise of having them take on local drug dealers made a kind of sense. The inherent joke about the show was the improbability of making up … [Read more...] about Baywatch, review: ‘Johnson calling Efron by the names of boy band members went out of date the day they were written’
