‘Teen Beach Movie’ Reviews
New York Times
Of course, many other sources are tapped for the synthetic peppiness and
romance of Teen Beach Movie. The film within the film, featuring a
song-and-dance face-off between a biker gang and a group of clean-cut
surfers, is called Wet Side Story (just one “s” away from a more
distinguished musical) but more closely channels Grease, also a dominant
influence on the High School Musical films.

To be clear, Teen Beach Movie isn’t a retro beach movie, but a movie
about two modern-day teenage surfers, McKenzie (Maia Mitchell, ABC
Family’s The Fosters) and Brady (Ross Lynch, Austin & Ally), who get
trapped inside a ’60s-era musical. However, the musical holding them
hostage — Wet Side Story, where surfers and bikers battle for control of
a local hangout — is more colorful, acrobatic and full of tunes than
any of the actual beach films ever were.
on its own terms the 95-minute Disney Channel original plays like a
brightly colored beach blanket, albeit one that’s a little rough around
its sandy edges.
clearly hoping to recapture the teen pop culture conversation with Teen
Beach Movie, a more entertaining, clever musical than its generic title
suggests. Written by Vince Marcello, Mark Landry and Robert Horn and
directed by Jeffrey Hornaday, Teen Beach Movie goes out of its way to
mock the movie musical convention of characters breaking into song but
then devotes a whole song to the practice.
Sounds like everyone’s
warming up to the summer sensation like we are! Teen Beach Movie really
is a blast that picks up right where the High School Musical fun left
off. But don’t take it from us — you can get a better idea of the
beach-y fun by watching our exclusive interview with the cast below! And
don’t forget to catch a Teen Beach Movie rerun!
