This movie is terrible, it's not like I had high hopes or anything or thought I was watching the next Best Picture Oscar it just even in my bad movies, I like to have a story line that I can follow or something.

I should give this move a whole star or two though because Dwayne(the rock) Johnson is in this movie and I am all about that man!

As good as it is bad. And its plenty bad. Fun for all the family (as long as theyre 13+).

Horrible writing, embarrassing sexism, bad acting. I would rate it no stars.

I love stupid humor, but this was just plain dumb. I lost interest quickly.

Baywatch is a 2017 American comedy and action movie, starring a team of 6 lifeguards who protect their bay and take down a drug operation. Both Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron play an important role in the movie and their character contrast provides comedic scenes throughout the movie. I personally loved this movie because it had a balance between action and comedy scenes and the plot/story was very well written. I enjoyed it a lot due to the actors that played certain characters, for example, Zac Efron acted as an over-confident person, who never was a team player. He was able to play this role very well and made me laugh throughout the movie. I also liked it because everyone sees lifeguards as someone who just stands on the beach all day but this movie showed the struggles and obstacles they had to overcome day by day. I recommend anyone from the age of 15 or older, who enjoy action and comedy movies to watch Baywatch. It contains some sexual & nudity scenes, plenty of profanity, and some alcohol/drugs scenes. I would give this movie a 9/10 rating.

Got me in stitches during the entire film; laughed so hard that my eyes were moist during an early scene when I did not know that this was more a comedy of pretty people in bathing suits than action or drama that critics were looking for:

Entertaining flick, with a lot of laughs, crude humor, and a bit of a weak plot. That said, it was a great flick to watch when I needed something easy to follow--and something to snort at--after a long day.

Why does the SM Library intentionally omit the MPAA rating in its film listings?

Funny and entertaining!

Lot of language, crude, but it's funny with semi-endearing characters.
