Movie Review: Baywatch
By Andrea Thompson
The only thing to say about the Baywatch movie is that it could have been worse. Really. Then again, Hollywood probably should’ve known better than to try to update it, even in our current era of endless reboots, prequels, sequels, and remakes. Much like the recent Power Rangers adaptation, the main problem is that the TV show that spawned it had an appeal that seemed confined to its era, which was a bizarre mix of cheese and camp, as well as a lighthearted tone that both allowed the show to fully embrace every ridiculous situation the cast found itself in, and get away with the…let’s just say visuals.
