Storyline

Life's a beach for surfers Brady and McKenzie -- until a rogue wave magically transports them inside the classic '60s beach party flick, Wet Side Story, where a full-blown rivalry between bikers and surfers threatens to erupt. There, amidst a sea of surfing, singing and dancing, Brady and Mack accidentally change the storyline, and the film's dreamy hero and heroine fall for them instead of for each other!

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?

546th Review: Very Solid Tweenies Movie With Song & Surf...and Post-Modernity?!
21 July 2013 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

TBM 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!
