Loved This Movie!!!! It was hilarious with non-stop laughs and a lot of great one-liners. Too many people are trying to turn it into what it's not. It's a comedy and delivers on that front. Didn't feel like it needed a deeper story line because that isn't the purpose of the movie. Would totally recommend this to anyone and would love to see it again!
Don't listen to these stupid bad reviews! (by jordanevo)
This film has had so many bad reviews and I honestly don't have a clue why. I went to see this film yesterday with my mates and we absolutely loved it! It had so much to offer, funny and entertaining from beginning to end. The acting was fantastic and the actors in this really know how to keep you entertained. The film was hilarious, action packed, very sexy and the story line was brilliantly planned out. The way you have to follow the character of Matt Brody played by Zac Efron is great and makes you want to stay and see what happens. At the end of the day these bad reviews and scores <more>
this film is getting really confuses me, this is the best film I have seen in such a long time and I can't wait for Baywatch 2!
An amazing movie with quality comedy (by irvinlesh)
Honestly, I am not sure why people are bagging on this film. Its great. The plot is fun, and runs smoothly. The comedy in this film is what sells it the most. Some of the jokes are actually great and unexpected. The others, are cheesy, on purpose, and will make you laugh regardless. Dwayne Johnson knocks it out of the park on this one. All of the cast has character, and none of them are neglected. It's a great film. I'd recommend it to everybody. Don't listen to the useless critics and pointless user reviewers with super over the top movie standards. If you wanna relax and laugh, <more>
watch this film. If you want to come in with a microscope and over analyze something in a way it wasn't meant to be analyzed, just don't come to not ruin it for others.
A Nice summer comedy with lots of jokes (by stakismavridis)
I had a really great time watching this movie and I am quite glad I chose it over the Pirates of the Caribbean. There are lots of nice jokes and contrary to my initial thoughts, there are very few nude scenes. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Effron are both great leads and they inarguably take part in all the funny scenes of the movie. I have to admit that I was quite cautious before going to see the movie due to all the negative reviews and I finally came to a conclusion about all the people who believe that every movie should be reviewed as a potential Oscar nominee! Not all movies <more>
have to be "serious" and dramatic. I know most of the reviewers out there were expecting to see something like "The Pianist" when they bought tickets for "Baywatch" and that is the reason why this movie let them down. My advice is to watch movies that make you have a nice time Baywatch is one of them alongside Piranha 3D, American Pie . Not all movies are filmed in order to become Oscar Nominees! Many of them are made with the goal of making the viewers have a great time! Please take that into account the next time you are criticizing a movie!
Laughing is this movies goal. (by yvonnefrederica)
For what it is worth, it is a good movie. Plenty of decent jokes. Some vulgar jokes but very few. Some awkward jokes as well. I did enjoy it and so will you. Just a genuine movie for good laughs. The sense of humor this movie calls for is not for everyone. Still, you can enjoy this movie and I hope you do. It will not become one of your classic movies though; it is not that kind of humor at all.
Not A Single Fart Joke Was Given! (by crsmial-32649)
I am forty-six years old and I'll be one of the first decry Hollywood's descent into 'nothing but potty humor' notions of what passes for comedy these days. Also, having been seventeen when the show first aired I can tell you that the gratuitous shots of bouncing breasts in slow motion we're not nearly as prevalent as people remember, in what little I saw of it. That said, I am absolutely dumbfounded by the negative reviews and poor opening of this film! I can't help but wonder what in the world people were expecting. To be fair, I may have watched about five episodes <more>
of the TV show when it was on, but my assumption was that the show was about a group of lifeguards getting into situations and capers well outside the purview of a group of lifeguards. For me, this movie was practically perfect at being what it set out to be. It never tried to take itself too seriously, yet was only just campy enough to let the audience know that. I thought everyone performed well in their given roles, the jokes were hilarious and no more excessive than what I would expect the 2017, rated 'R' film version to pull off. At times I even felt like I was in the middle of a seasons long binge on Netflix. This movie did a decent job of making the outlandish 'not-so-mysterious mystery' somewhat believable and I even half-expected a scene near the end with Priyanka Chopra's villain saying, 'And I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling lifeguards and your bigger, stronger Hasselhoff!' Now as a disclaimer, this was the first 'R' rated movie I took my teen-aged son to see so I thought perhaps my laugh meter was ratcheted up, but the theater that was 85% full at 9:20PM on a Sunday night all seemed to be laughing as hard as we were. I think perhaps people were just upset with this film for having not enough naked women and sexual situations, or contrarily didn't want their Baywatchers using foul language and making penis jokes? I don't know. I say go see this movie with zero expectations, let it be what it is, don't be a prude, and you will laugh a lot and have a good time!
Really depends on what you're looking for.. (by seanmitchelmore)
Baywatch is super cheesy, low brow, campy, ridiculous, etc, etc.....but you know what? That's enjoyable sometimes! You don't knowingly buy a ticket to a movie like this and then go write a review afterwards complaining about plot, teenage boy humour, and character development. hahaha. I had low expectations, shut my brain off at the door, and enjoyed this movie for what it was.
It's not a James Bond movie! (by lupierz-91616)
It's not a James Bond movie, but the drama is real!Let's be totally honest - the movie is exactly as it's supposed to be. It's light, slightly offensive to whoever it can and sends this wink to the audience. Not like Deadpool completely breaking the 4th wall. In a way that keeps with the summer vibe.Definitely, a summer movie to watch with friends on a hot evening with a glass of Pimms!Lupierz
I don't know what these other reviews are talking about! (by decafcoffee1979)
While extremely predictable, Baywatch lives up to what comedies are offering the viewers of today's society: laughs! Lots of laughs! There are the generic breast and penis jokes, lots of butt and boob close ups, but also genuine hilarity. The men and women at my movie theater couldn't stop laughing. In fact, I had to cover my mouth several times from laughing TOO loudly. There are moments of warmth, lessons to be learned, and a lot of Zac Efron's abs. With the amount of ladies' butts shown in this movie, it rivals the latest Fast and Furious movie. I also feel that the people <more>
who wrote reviews who say they got up to leave in the middle, or thirty minutes in, sorely missed out on a wonderful film. Don't listen to the critics, go see this film!
