Did You Know?


If you notice, all of the actresses in Teen Beach Movie (2013) have high-waist bikinis that cover their navels. Most of the actresses in the "Beach" movies of the 60's wore regular bikinis of the time that did expose their navels but not Ms. Annette Funicello. Ms. Funicello was still under contract with Disney at the time and was on loan to do the Beach movies. It is a widely reported myth that Mr. Walt Disney forbid Annette from exposing her navel. Ms. Funicello addressed this issue in her 1994 autobiography where explained she choose not to expose her navel "out of respect" for Mr. Disney. See more »


(at around 1 hour 28 minutes) When they start dancing again, Mack starts to do one move, then very quickly changes to another, showing that she did the wrong move. This happens so quickly, it's a "blink and you'll miss it" moment, which is probably why the editors decided to leave it. See more »


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

Shame. Nothing but shame.
20 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I didn't have very high expectations for this movie, but on a rainy afternoon, I thought 'eh why not?' Here's why not: It was horrible. the costumes where overdone, the accents where horribly cheesy, and the songs where so cliché for the 60's. Overused tunes, stupid lyrics and it seemed like Maia Ross and Grace where the only people who could actually sing. And then there's the acting. So,so stupid. I have never been a huge Ross Lynch fan, and this movie dropped my respect for his acting to an all time low. the only reason I gave this movie a 3 (a blessing) is because I was genuinely fond of Maia Mitchell as 'Mack.' I thought her acting was very good, as was her singing. I would love to see her in anything else besides, you know, this. To sum it up, don't waste your tie on Disneys latest disaster.
