In sun-kissed Emerald Bay, the vigorous Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon and Baywatch, his elite team of hand-picked and perfectly tanned lifeguards, protect the bay, keeping both sunbathers and beach lovers safe. However, this summer, two new eager trainees will join the demanding life-saving program, as well as an insubordinate former Olympic swimmer, who are all called to prove their worth on the lifeguard towers just on time when a new synthetic street drug begins to infest the Emerald Bay: the flakka. Without a doubt, this calls for some serious undercover teamwork action, as the badgeless heroes in spandex comb the beach for shady newcomers and nefarious entrepreneurs with hidden agendas of their own. Can Mitch’s band save the bay?
User Reviews: I can take a comedy that doesn’t have a strong plot, just as long as it’s funny. The film fails its one job, falling flat on most of its jokes (quite literally in fact, considering the first prominent joke involves a Cole Sprouse look-a-like*, played by Jon Bass, falling over)
*To be clear, Jon Bass’ character isn’t meant to be an actual Cole Sprouse look-a-like; I just wanted to point out that he really looks like Cole Sprouse.
