SnoReptilePlenty Memorable, crazy movie
Rijndri Load of rubbish!!
Lela The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue.
Curt Watching it is like watching the spectacle of a class clown at their best: you laugh at their jokes, instigate their defiance, and "ooooh" when they get in trouble.
Rascutin 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.
mikelela19 I did have very high expectations for this movie, but on a rainy afternoon, I thought 'eh why not?' Here's why not: It was good. the costumes where hot, the accents where good not bad , and the songs where so cool for the 60's. good turns not bad tunes , good 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 good. I have never been a huge Ross Lynch fan, and this movie popped my respect for his acting to an all time high. the only reason I gave this movie a 10 (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, do good Disney movies on Disney channel .
je_and_la Back in 2009 Disney Channel brought us "Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie" from the shores of Puerto Rico. Now they bring us "Teen Beach Movie", a fun beach party inspired film. McKenzie (Maia Mitchell) and Brady (Ross Lynch) are two surfers who are magically transported inside a classic '60s beach party film, Wet Side Story, where a surf-and-turf war between the surfers and bikers is in full swing. After accidentally changing the film's plot causing the film's hero and heroine to fall for them instead of each other, Mack and Brady must find a way to change the plot back whilst also finding a way back home.The storyline progressed at an easy pace for the audience to follow, while still taking the time to learn about each of the four main characters in detail. The plot line of Wet Side Story, a spoof off of the popular film "West Side Story", was both funny and enjoyable to watch. McKenzie's insistence that girls can do anything boys can do provided a great message to the audience, as well as adding extra conflict to the plot.The acting was typical for a Disney Channel Original Movie and most of the cast did a terrific job at over-acting their parts when it came to the Wet Side Story characters. Lynch and Mitchell had very believable chemistry, while Grace Phipps (Lela) and Garrett Clayton (Tanner) did a great job at over-acting their own character's relationship.The film was let down as it was laced with continuity errors. One such error occurred towards the end of the film when Mitchell's hair changed from being up to down from shot to shot. Other errors occurred throughout the film, though this was the most noticeable. The costumes for this film were very similar to those that were used in beach party movies in the '60s. The girls in this film wore high-waisted bikinis which covered their navels, a nod to Ms. Annette Funicello to whom the film was dedicated. The movie's soundtrack was reminiscent of '60s beach party tunes, and contained tracks that were catchy and fun to listen to. 'Can't Stop Singing', sung by Lynch and Mitchell, reflected the plot and worked to parody the genre of movie-musical with lyrics such as 'this can't be happening' and 'don't tell me it's a song'. As we saw back in 2009, Puerto Rico has some beautiful beaches which we got to see again in this film. It's a shame however that in the 'Can't Stop Singing' scene, there was a modern city visible in the background although this part of the film was set in the '60s.With catchy tunes, a progressive storyline and a beautiful location, Disney Channel has once again produced a thoroughly enjoyable film, deserving of the 8/10 rating given.
maria joao 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.
