We're gonna surf.
What, you like to surf?
I know! It's like riding a cloud. Except the cloud is water.
No way! I said the same thing! Except, well... Not right now.
I know that Bikers aren't supposed to like surfing, but I don't care. Oh, my gosh. I don't care!
You don't? Hey, you know what?
No, I don't know that either.
I've always wanted to ride a motorcycle.
Are you serious?
No, I'm Tanner.

The astonishing success of High School Musical in 2006 , which successfully blended the musicality of the old MGM movies with a contemporary tale of teenagers trying to find themselves, is made all the more astonishing by the simple fact that this movie was ever made. TEEN BEACH MOVIE is nothing more and nothing less than a "cautionary tale," cataloguing in one short but still extremely painful film all the things that can wrong if you actually make a movie without having a clue what you are doing. As the "dedication" off the top makes abundantly clear, the film is meant to be some sort of affectionate spoof or take-off of the original beach movies which, of course, the Disney studio more or less pioneered. Hold it. Stop right there. That was the first monster error in judgement by the producers. See, the original Disney beach movies were themselves social spoofs. The 60s was a time of social chaos and Hollywood elected to respond to that by creating "escapist" films which allowed both teenagers and adults to participate in the insanity from the safety and comfort of a soft theatre seat. The producers of the original beach movies shrewdly understood that the real audience for their films was NOT teenagers living on the beach in southern California -- THEY ALREADY HAD THE REAL THING ON THEIR DOORSTEP -- but, essentially, everyone else on the planet. The larger, and more lucrative, market was offering the vicarious thrill of eyeballing the beach crowd from cities that did not even have much sunshine, yet alone sand and sea. It was a time of change, revealing bathing suits were new, even colour movies were new. The producers of the originals understood this, and used this to their advantage. The producers of TEEN BEACH MOVIE understand nothing, as evidenced by their attempt to "make a spoof out of a spoof" (replete with production numbers in the sand, and, God Help Us, a walk-on by a Mad Scientist). For that strategy to even have a chance of working, their target audience would have to be the SAME audience that saw the originals. See the flaw in logic? What this movie does succeed in doing is seriously threatening the careers of everyone who appeared in it, Even Grace Phipps, who was very effective in the short-lived Chloe King series, looks lost, as though she wandered onto the wrong set. And the Continuity Editor (assuming this production could afford one) did not seem to notice that the young lady had the complexion of Johnny Depp from Dark Shadows, and looked like she had never been on a beach in her life. Bottom line -- shows you what could have happened to High School Musical, if the wrong people had been behind the production.
