Synopsis

Head lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) is informed by Captain Thorpe (Rob Huebel) that city council is considering cutting the money that goes into the Baywatch program. That's when Mitch is introduced to a new, young recruit: extreme athlete Matt Brody (Zac Efron). Unfortunately, the two butt heads when Matt turns out to be reckless, obnoxious and in addition, a heavy drinker.

Along with fellow lifeguard Summer (Alexandra Daddario), the two have to work together to come up with a way to save Baywatch Headquarters and uncover a criminal plot led by Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra).

Based on the hit TV series, which ran from 1989 to 2000. Former stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will be making cameos.

  • 4 stars "The critics said to take a pass which means to me it's a good movie. A great story - not really but the humour was great, especially the banter between Diane and Zac. If you need a good laugh, it's worth a look."
  • 4 stars "Very funny not the best script but worth watching"
  • 3 stars "This is a start of Summer movie...not too serious. It won't go down in the annals of history. It may convince people to get in better shape...and you feel happy after you leave the movie theatre."
