All in all, Baywatch capitalizes on its R-rating, affable stars, and the goodwill of its TV franchise ties to breathe life into an otherwise standard buddy cop action/adventure. Though the film tries to join the ranks of action comedies with heart – or, perhaps, follow in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street in modernizing a classic property to great success – Baywatch ultimately doesn’t offer much more than a superficial bro adventure. Certainly, the film will no doubt entertain audiences that head to theaters excited for Johnson or Efron’s latest offering, and it does deliver on the promise of a summer comedy starring the two beloved actors. Still, neither Johnson and Efron’s charm nor the property’s TV legacy can save Baywatch from becoming a largely unremarkable action comedy.

That constant theme would be family, and the film here has Dom and Letty (Rodriguez) talking about starting one, and Hobbs (Johnson) spending his free time training his daughter’s soccer team. There are other father-sons, mother-sons moments here.What about the cars, you ask? Even as the films come fast and furious (eight in 16 years), there are fewer and fewer grounds left to break. This one, with Gary Gray at the helm for first time, skates on thin ice. Literally.

It kind of goes that way throughout the movie. Which also features long periods of too-sincere homilies about teamwork, weirdly gratuitous brutality (one innocuous character is subjected to a grotesquely grisly death) and an extended corpse-penis joke which, in the dishonorable tradition of “Dirty Grandpa,” subjects a character played by Zac Efron to humiliation in a way that’s not even stealthily homophobic. On the plus side, the movie has a pervading air of crass amiability about it—it’s almost like a two-hour end-credits gag reel. (Nevertheless, it contains an end credits gag reel.) But as I said, if you saw the trailer, you got the best the movie has to offer.

The female characters are sidelined, given little to do besides run slowly up and down the beach and smile patiently as the camera (and every male character onscreen) ogles their bodies. The most they’re given to do during the movie’s frequent CGI-heavy danger-and-rescue scenes is idle a boat in the water to wait for their male coworkers to finish the heroics. Worse, one male character is frequently called “princess” or “bitch,” and a coworker records a video of him touching the penis of a dead man (The Office’s Oscar Nunez, which makes the scene even weirder for fans of that show). Ha ha, like he’s gay, see? Because that’s funny. And it’s a dead guy’s penis, so that’s funny, too. Right? Right? Hey, where are you going? No thanks, movie.
