Baywatch Review

OK

Clearly, it's a risky proposition adapting a cheesy vintage TV series for the big screen: this is the second one that's gone awry this year, after CHiPs. But it doesn't have to be like this. Lively movie versions of Charlie's Angels and 21 Jump Street proved that with inventive writing, snarky performances and deranged energy, the result can be thoroughly entertaining. Sadly, this movie falls back on cheap jokes that simply aren't that funny. Fans of Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will still have a good time - they're both unstoppably engaging - but the truth is that this simply isn't good enough.

We're back in Emerald Bay, where the beefy hotshot Mitch (Johnson) heads up the lifeguard crew with babes Stephanie and CJ (Ildenesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach). And now they're training up three new recruits: fallen Olympic swimming champ Matt (Efron), feisty hottie Summer (Alexandra Daddario) and pudgy geek Ronnie (Jon Bass). Meanwhile, as various crimes and calamities strike the beach, Mitch decides to investigate everything himself without the help of the local police. And as he becomes convinced that resort owner Victoria (Priyanka Chopra) is involved in bribery, extortion, drug running and murder, he sends his lifeguards undercover to catch her. Which of course is just a bit beyond what they were trained to do.

Baywatch - Trailer and Clips


There is no better lifeguard team out there than that of Los Angeles' Baywatch. However, they are seriously losing money and in order to boost their brand, a PR executive encourages them to get some fresh blood on the team. Matt Brody may have landed two gold medals in the field, but that doesn't guarantee he'll be right for the squad. He's far from an impressive addition in the eyes of Mitch Buchanan; he may be prettier, but he hasn't got the brains or the brawn to match up to him. Matt thinks the job is just about educating people on sunburn and stopping them from drowning, but when it becomes clear that there's a drug ring in the area and a body subsequently washes up on the beach, their job gets a whole lot more complicated. Yeah, they should probably leave it to the police, but instead they decide on an unauthorised undercover sting operation instead. Maybe thrill-seeking Matt can teach Mitch and the team a thing or two about living life on the edge. Or maybe he'll just run like hell.

Baywatch - Super Bowl Trailer


The Baywatch lifeguard team might be the best known on the planet, but in this new reality, they are really struggling with their brand. Mitch Buchanan (Dwayne Johnson) is facing cuts to his squad from the council, because they're apparently not doing enough to get themselves noticed (not even with C.J. Parker's [Kelly Rohrbach] slow-motion run). The top brass at the Baywatch Headquarters decide to try and up the popularity by employing a new member to the team; the young, super-athletic and recklessly wild Matt Brody (Zac Efron) who all the girls might like but Mitch is struggling to whip into shape. He's not exactly setting the best example for safety with his endless spontaneous stunts, and Mitch likes him even less when all he's wearing is minuscule American flag Speedos. But these guys have to find some common ground and band together when a body washes up on their beach.

David Hasselhoff WILL Appear In 'Baywatch' Movie


David Hasselhoff Dwayne Johnson

David Hasselhoff is to feature in a new Baywatch movie that also stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron, it has been revealed.

Johnson will reportedly be playing the role of Mitch Buchannon, the part occupied by the Hoff in the original TV series which ran from 1989 to 2000 – meaning that it’s as yet unclear what role Hasselhoff will be playing in this new movie reboot.

Announcing the news in an Instagram video on Thursday (March 3rd), Johnson was seen chatting via FaceTime with his future co-star Hasselhoff, asking the 63 year old actor “I don't know if the world is ready for both of us. Are you ready?”

Too Much 'Hassel'! David Hasselhoff Changes His Name


David Hasselhoff

'Baywatch' star and general TV legend David Hasselhoff has decided to change his name to ease the hassle of his life, and becomes just plain David Hoff - undoubtedly an homage to his endearing nickname 'The Hoff'. Now he just sounds like a cigar brand (Davidoff - geddit?).

David HasselhoffDavid Hasselhoff drops the 'Hassel'

The cheesy 80s actor (and we say that with great affection) who appeared in 'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!' earlier this year opted for the name change as part of an Australian ad campaign - more on the subject will be revealed later - but he sure had us convinced that it was all for real with his video announcement.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No Gives Ian Ziering A Franchise


Ian Ziering David Hasselhoff Bo Derek Lou Ferrigno

No one expected the original Sharknado to be much more than a laugh, but its sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One was an even bigger hit. Now Syfy has released Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, and there's also news that star Ian Ziering will be back for a fourth romp next year.

Sharknado 3 poster'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No' comin' atcha!

The actor, who rose to fame in the 1990s in Beverly Hills 90210, knows that these films are a joke. "It's over the top, but it's over the top in a great way, and I've stopped questioning it," he says. "These movies are not intended for overthinkers, but they've really captured the imagination of sci-fi fans. Sharknado 2 generated such a shockwave that it reverberated over a billion Twitter impressions around the world. It was all top 10 trending topics on Twitter at the same time! Nowhere in any parallel universe did I ever think that would happen in my career."

The Hoff returns to his homeland of early computer graphics, cheesy storylines and epic action stories with a new 80s-inspired short film called 'Kung Fury'. Filmed in Sweden by talented up-and-coming animator David Sandberg, it features a new song from Hasselhoff, 'True Survivor' composed by Mitch Murder, alongside an epic music video.

John Cleese To Star As Villain In Baywatch-but-not-Baywatch Spin-Off. What?


John Cleese David Hasselhoff Pamela Anderson

We’ll admit to being a tad confused with this one. A new Baywatch spin-off movie has been announced; with Monty Python star John Cleese fulfilling the role of antagonist.

But even though David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and Alexandra Paul - who appeared as Mitch Buchannon, CJ Parker and Stephanie Holden in the original Baywatch series – will star, the film doesn’t really have anything to do with Baywatch. They don’t have the rights. They can’t mention the word Baywatch. And they probably don’t need to.

Is David Hasselhoff’s New Show The Next ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’?


David Hasselhoff

‘Baywatch’ star and Germany’s favourite recording artist, David Hasselhoff, is coming back to TV, with a new six part ‘spoof-reality’ series beginning next year. ‘Hoff the Record’ (yes that’s the real title) will be shown on comedy channel Dave in the UK, though we’re assuming the German’s will be quick snap this one up too.

David HasselhoffJump in my car, The Hoff is coming to channel Dave

The series sees David, sorry the Hoff, portraying a ‘fictionalised version of himself’ as he tries to rebuild his career in the UK. It will be “semi-improvised’ and David will have some as-yet-to-be-named comedy co-stars helping him along the way. Of course the obvious comparison to make is with HBO’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, starring Larry David. But does The Hoff really have what it takes to make the next 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'?
