Jul 23, 2013Luckily some of the tunes in "Teen Beach Movie" work nicely, but it certainly has issues with its actors portraying realistic-like roles. With its "High School Musical" like genre, the film has certainly a bunch of musical numbers, and although they might not reach the heights of the level that "High School Musical" could, the songs are at least better than most, although it sounds very auto-tuned. Also, the movie is in fact better done than I expected, as the film at least tried to convey a message, though not entirely. With this in mind, "Teen Beach Movie" is a good film for your kids, and will at least get a tune stuck in the minds of adults, but will sometimes feel horribly acted and a lot cliche.… Full Review »
Aug 4, 2013Not a bad Disney channel original movie, more like decent. It follows the trend set by the likes High School Musical and Camp Rock by being a musical. The actual music numbers aren't bad but after a while I just lost interest, and that can be said about the movie as a whole. The overall plot is nice and has a sweet tone, and there are a few chuckle worthy moments throughout, but that won't help keep older viewers entertained. Kids will love it though. Everything about the movie is decent at best right down to the acting. Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell are likable enough leads, but the latter has trouble maintaining and American accent, occasionally letting her British accent slip through. The more emotional moments are when the acting takes a slight dip in quality. I can't really hate on this too much considering it's aimed at kids, but I can't really bring myself to say that it's a good movie, because in my book it's more of an ok movie.… Full Review »
Oct 25, 2013Never mind the fact that Teen Beach Movie is a movie and not a TV show (so it wouldn't have "Season 1" like it says above and would be in the movie section) but it was kinda stupid. I mean, how is it even possible to enter a movie through a wave? Did they somehow enter some kind of alternate dimension or reality? OK for a Disney Channel movie (in which cheesiness and cliched lines are expected) but it could have been better. However, I'm sure that it will please most of its younger audience, as they probably don't care about all the plot holes.
