    We went into "Baywatch" really hoping to laugh a lot and to be surprised by one of the summer's first comedy films, but never really did. If jokes about taints being flicked for the sole purpose of being filmed for blackmail is your type of humor,... Read the full review »

  • WHAT I LIKED: Every now and then, a character will say something in a film that just so happens to capture exactly what the audience are thinking. Right at the start of 'Baywatch,' Zac Efron quite sincerely asks "are you serious right now?" These... Read the full review »
