Teen Beach Movie is the Perfect Movie For The Ages Between 6- 15.
Teen Beach Party is a movie about being in a movie - as our two stars find themselves going from 2012 back to 1962 and becoming part of a Teen Beach Movie.
This is good solid Disney fare - it looks very Disney - the colors are bright, the mood is up, the song and dance numbers are beyond professional etc; and it is fun - it's fun because we know that they know that we know that this movie in a movie (if you're still with me)
it all just works well.
There is more going here than just a time travel surf movie - there is a real homage and detailing to those Sixties movies that is surprising. Our kids loved it and so did we - on one level its a fun summer movie for kids with dance and innocent romance, on a level it has something to say about film and roles - surprising!
