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!

Not Bad At All.
26 September 2014 | by RascutinSee all my reviews

Good storyline (a used one though), great actors and actresses, excellent costumes, beautiful film location, and catchy songs. The TBM was like a combination of the movies Back To The Future, 17 Again, and West Side Story. I had never really been a huge fan of Ross Lynch before so I had no idea how good this movie was going to be. As I was listening to Ross speaking, I didn't find his voice to be "attractive". But then everybody broke out into singing and I was amazed! I later found out that Ross was the lead singer of a band with his two brothers, sister, and close friend called R5 and now I'm a fan. Anyway, TBM was a great little movie. Can't wait for the sequel! 7/10 stars.
