In Teen Beach Movie (2013) Butchy said "For some people it's spiders for others it heights but for me its lighthouses." And then he says he's afraid of water. See more »
In "Best Summer Ever," Butchy is revving his motorcycle and a girl in a black bathing suit is sitting behind the bike. Behind here are green and yellow surfboards stuck upright in the sand. Butchy revs his bike, covering the girl in sand. However, when we see black bathing girl covered in sand, she has been reoriented so that the beach is behind, leading to the entrance of the frisbee dance brigade. See more »

This sequel to Teen Beach Movie by the Disney Studio strays more into fantasy than the original. The original film dealt with a pair of fans from today who think the original movie from the early Kennedy era Sixties is the greatest piece of cinema ever made. Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell step into the world of that movie and change things just by being there and then have to leave, but not before repairing all the damage they've done.
Teen Beach 2 is exactly the opposite. The lead characters from the film Garret Clayton and Grace Phipps step into the real world and their Sixties frame of mind gets quite a culture shock when they see the world of 2015. Pretty soon however the whole cast even the extras come over into the real world. Like characters from the Holodeck of the Enterprise. And those folks meet an inevitable end when they venture beyond their Holodeck world.
Now it's Clayton and Phipps who turn things upside down and have to get back to their world.
The film actually asks some intriguing questions but in the end you have to remember this is a Disney film and meant for juvenile audiences who don't think so terribly deep. The performers are scrubbed clean and fresh and are attractive as you would expect anything from the Magic Kingdom to be.
It's obvious that Disney Studios is going to stretch this out like they did with the High School Musical series. Here's an interesting thought though. In the movie if the real players who were Clayton and Phipps when they were younger, if they're not dead would now be even older than I am and on social security.
What if their 2015 selves met Clayton and Phipps? Turn that one over in your mind for a third Teen Beach movie.
