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! Written by The Disney Channel

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?

Fun!
24 August 2013 | by mariajoaou27See all my reviews

Teen Beach Movie is a fun movie. It puts you in a good mood with the catchy songs, the entertaining dance moves and the easy-flowing dialog. It's a light summer movie that will make you smile several times.

Sure, there are flaws in this movie. The conflict is not very clear and the plot is somewhat messy and hard to understand. The antagonists don't seem to go with the rest of the movie. However, 60s movies were just like this -- and this movie is based off a hypothetical 60s movie.

This isn't supposed to be a clever movie that makes you look back on your life and reflect. This is a movie that is supposed to make you feel good. And it serves its purpose really well. Go into this movie with an open minded and you're likely to enjoy it.
