Baywatch ****

This is a very funny homage to the original TV Baywatchseries, with cameos from two of the stars.

I found myself laughing out loud with the large audience of an early afternoon screening.

The humour is lowbrow and liberally peppered with innuendo and expletives but of very good quality and portions.

The original series put the characters into ridicules situations and the film builds on that tradition, with a beautiful evil villain, off the shelf henchmen and improbable heroes.

Fans of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will not be disappointed by the stunt work. It is not on the sane scale as his other recent films but fits this story very appropriately.

All said, a very satisfying 4 out of five stars from me.

  1. Never watched the series in any serious way, despite the obvious attractions. Pleased to hear that it’s so humorous, though an unlikely one for us
