Down to 14% on RT. Ouch. You would think a shirtless Zach and Rock could draw at least a 40

Let's keep it simple: it was 21 Jump Street on a beach, but the difference is 21 Jump Street was actually good.

Outside of The Rock calling Zac "High School Musical", my theater barely laughed at this movie. Went in with low expectations and those still weren't met, avoid this.

Also TONS of comments about lack of female nudity. Reddit is gross.

We watched this last night. It wasn't *awful* like some people were acting. We've seen some bad comedies this year (Snatched, Fist Fight, Rough Night), I would put Baywatch above all of those. It tries really hard to be the next 21 Jump Street, but it isn't even 1/10th as funny. The Rock is charismatic and fun to watch, same with most of the cast. I don't regret watching it, but I will never watch it again.

The movie is 2 hours long, that was just too long. There was a lot of fat that could have been trimmed out, like spending 10 minutes on a character getting his twig and berries stuck in a lawn chair.

Watched this on Saturday. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting and I actually did laugh a few times. The story itself was pretty bad and I agree with Glass that they could have taken a lot of the dumb stuff out.

I agree with everyone. This would have been an awesome 90 min movie.

I havent watched it yet, but I'll go ahead and agree with every one too. Trim the fat.

One thing that really bothered me was how the fat lifeguard didn't seem to care too much that Hannibal Burress's character was killed. The beginning of the movie made it seem like they were best friends, but when he gets killed, the fat guy just says "Oh man, that's my old co-worker and nothing more, I'm barely sad at all".

That was really odd. Clearly they were close friends, not just old co-workers.

Dwayne Johnson happily accepts Baywatch's Razzie

Pretty ironic since this was him when Baywatch came out. I guess all that Jumanji movie cooled him off.

Bold move from this critic who watched #Baywatch w/ other critics who laughed their ass off, but then they decide to trash it publicly. https://t.co/k8x6XFBzPd

Oh boy, critics had their venom & knives ready. Fans LOVE the movie. Huge positive scores. Big disconnect w/ critics & people. #Baywatchhttps://t.co/K0AQPf6F0S

Whaa? Who taught you economics? 35-45% of your budget in just one territory (US) is excellent. Our worldwide rollout begins next week.

That is pretty funny that The Rock appears so fun and lighthearted when accepting that role but threw such a fit earlier about the movie.

Idk, I think this movie gets too much criticism. Yes it was a dumb, immature comedy, but I feel like it knew that's what it was. It wasn't trying to be a serious action movie or anything. I don't think it was a good movie by any stretch, but I don't regret watching it.
