The biggest disappointment of this feature is that it's not even so bad it's good.

The'Baywatch reboot is mildly diverting but altogether dull. Summer fun shouldn't feel like such a chore.

Suffice it to say, too, that there's a lot of delight to be had in the frothy union of the Bay and the Watch, much of it coming from Johnson, who carries the whole of this movie on his epically chiseled lats.

Here is a film so poor, so half-arsed, and so contemptuous of its audience, that it screws up one of the great, (previously) infallible tropes of contemporary cinema: the David Hasslehoff cameo.

It's a long haul and despite his rescue efforts, the one-joke script fails to make it.

Baywatch is a rare movie in one sense: it starts with a good plan, to spoof the 1980s and 90s television series on which it is based, and sticks to it.

Teeters between absurdity and earnestness.

[Baywatch] won't make anyone think about anything, except maybe about where to plan their next vacation where they, too, can run in slo-mo on the sand. But, with everything else going on in the world these days, that may not be such a bad thing.

From scene to scene, it's never quite clear whether this Baywatch is paying tribute to its model or sending it up.

Baywatch might've been more watchable if it managed to have a bit more actual fun, not dunce-level antics masquerading as fun.

An unfunny script doesn't get funnier just because it gets to use the F-word. Making a plotline more complicated doesn't make it more interesting or more meaningful. Easter eggs are only fun if they're clever.

Cynical and gross.

Thank heaven for Dwayne Johnson, whose foot-wide smile will not be switched off, and who saves the life of the movie. Whether it deserves to be saved is another matter.

The pair have good chemistry, but the film falls apart when Gordon tries (too hard) to turn it into a crime caper.

The idea of lifeguards playing detective is so fundamentally ridiculous that making fun of it never gets old.

Unlike the setup, the story founders and cramps like a tourist who swam too soon after an all-you-can-eat buffet, which is pretty much the only thing the filmmakers don't toss into the water by film's end.

Lower what little expectation you have going in and you'll still be disappointed.

The Rock is fun to watch, for a while at least. The rest is one big fat wallow in instant stupid.

For a movie that's allegedly a comedy, it never feels like it's having fun.

Not even Zac Efron's abs can distract us from the fact that we are treading in shallow, shallow waters.
