Baywatch

Rated R 119 minutes 2017

Technically, Baywatch is a comedy spin on the 1990s syndicated staple starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson as lifeguards with a liberal idea of jurisdiction, but the only influence that really matters here is the Jump Street franchise. The mission statement is the same — turn an outdated cheeseball TV drama into a soft-R, nostalgia-tickling bro-buddy action comedy — and so is the formula. Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson were hired as mismatched stars, key cameos were secured, a plot about a mysterious designer drug was devised, nudge-nudge self-references were sprinkled throughout.
