The Story Line:
In Florida, Emerald Bay, Lt. Mitch Buchannon with his team of lifesavers, including the second-in-command, Sir Stephanie Holden with the veteran CJ Parker, defend the beaches and bay as a portion of the elite division called as Baywatch.
Having about 500 rescues with his career, Mitch was adored by the community, to her annoyance of the local beat police Garner Ellerbee with Captain Thorpe, Mitch’s superior. During one of the sunrise patrols, Mitch discovered the little pouch of drugs that washed up close to the Huntley Club, and this is now under the ownership of the business lady Victoria Leeds.
With the next tryouts for the new lifeguards, there were three people that stand out: the surfer Summer Quinn, Ronnie, the old buddy of Holden, the chubby nerd that have a crush with C. J. and Matt Brody, the previous gold medal Olympic swimmer who fell from the grace to grass right after vomiting during the relay race and that now have to perform some community service being part of the unspecified plea contract. Ronnie and Summer mutually passed the trials, and Brody refused to do so and insisted that the Olympic status entitled him to the place of the team. Even with Brody representing the abilities by supporting in saving a drowning lady with her son, Mitch complained to Thorpe that he was not fit as to be a squad player. In return, Thorpe insisted that restoring the image is important to encourage the city and not to more cut the funding of Baywatch.
The Writers View:
About 20 years ago, the humanity was initiated to Baywatch a TV show. This was the awesome show for the pre-pubescent boy and the middle-age distorted who adored to view Pamela Anderson that runs with a slow-mo. Not like in a TV show, the movie is all beauty and brawn and does not have the brain cells to its name. The cast don’t even save the atrocious excuse of the movie. This is far from comedic romp that were promised in some trailers. The movie takes itself really serious and then some other times it is also known as a parody.
