Today we’re talking about the 2013 Disney Channel movie Teen Beach Movie.
There are a few movies about people getting sucked into their favourite movie, book, or game. I’m not sure what this niche genre is called but I obviously love it since I wrote a book in the same genre. Go check out Everdome.
The movie’s plot is simple and too the point. It’s almost completely unimportant and used as a vehicle for the music, whimsy, and references.
The main characters in this movie are basically Disney Channel cutouts that develop as time goes by.
Oddly enough the “real” world characters have less depths then the stereotypes in the movie world.
They are however very sweet and extremely fun to watch.
This movie is pure and utter cheese and ham. The movie revels in some of the best cheese lines.
The dialogue is delightful.
Visuals and Music
The movie is surprisingly pretty. They really worked towards making it over saturated and beach movie like.
The music is a love letter to teen love stories and classic movie musicals.
Fun music, cool concept, and extremely entertaining dialogue. This movie has a very low cringe factor and a lot of fun.
If you’re a fan of musicals and classic beach movies you’ll love this one. I’ve seen it twice and it’s the kind of movie I’d watch without being annoyed. I will also absolutely sing along.
Final Score: 3.5
