The new Baywatch movie is pure entertainment and has something for everyone. Well worth the money to go and see!
Baywatch, The Movie
Baywatch is full of gratuitous sex and violence, and that’s OK!
Caveat: this is my opinion only. I have no special background that makes me an authority on movies other than I like the big screen and like to be entertained. When I go to a movie, I like to laugh and walk away “lighter” than I went in.
If you are looking for a movie with great substance or makes a social statement, it’s not the movie for you.
Face it, we are all human and the majority respond to visual stimulation. This movie is full of beautiful women and hunky men. Top that off with a lot of action and your mind is kept busy the whole time. You won’t find your mind wandering and thinking about other things. OK, maybe a little fantasy but even that is addressed in the movie, they do some for you.
They address the auditory with music, gun shots, explosions etc. The script contains enough innuendo to keep your mind busy as well. Some of the references to past movies and shows is hilarious to “old” people like me. Thankfully, the cameo appearances by David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson didn’t overshadow the cast and successfully made the connection to the old TV show without being distracting.
They have done a great job of setting this movie up to kick off a renewal of the Baywatch franchise. I hope they make a new series using the actors from this movie! I believe it would capture an audience across multiple generations.
I was on the way home from work and knew my wife would be very late coming home. I arrived in the city just after 7 and decided I might as well take in a movie and thought I was choosing one she wouldn’t particularly appreciate. In the end, I think I was mistaken about that.
At first, there were two couples about my age, I’m in my 50’s. As the theatre started to fill, I noticed the crowd was younger and younger. In the end, I would bet most of the crowd was under 30!
I don’t usually appreciate people making noise during movies but there was no way that laughter could be contained. I was guilty myself!
Go And See Baywatch!
When people ask me if they should bother to go see a movie, this is how I rate them, from worst to best:
- Don’t waste your time or money.
- Wait for the television release.
- Wait and buy the DVD.
- Well worth the time and money
If you are extremely critical of plot and performance, wait for the television release. If you are looking for a fun night out and don’t want to be lectured on social conscience, well worth the time and money!
Enjoy the show,!
What am I thankful for today? I’m thankful for being able to just relax and have fun. I’m thankful for Paramount. I can’t believe I’m thankful for Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson! What are you thankful for today?
