Baywatch is not perfect, but, for a film intended it as a dumb comedy, it succeeds, for the most part, by leaps and bounds. What is so enjoyable despite the cookie cutter plot, silly characters and beauty-ogling is that it somehow manages to feel fun and fresh and (dare I say) clever in so many scenes. Its humour isn't always gut-bustingly funny but it is consistently smile-worthy.
Sure, there's lots to dislike. Sure, it's pointless, but it is pitch-perfect and keenly balanced between humour and faux-drama.
3.5 stars out of 5
Not as bad as I expected. Not sure whether that's due to the quality or my expectations. For a dumb reboot it was pretty enjoyable.
Went to see it with the hope it would be such a dumb comedy I'd enjoy it, but sadly I didn't. Felt way too long and only had a few half laughs and could have been easier funnier. Above that, the acting was most of the time disturbingly bad. 2/5.
