The film's time-warp, movie-nerd conceit is just clever enough to keep you entertained.

In spite of my pasty self, there's something I liked about all the relentless mugging and frugging.

It's too bad the makers didn't do a slightly better job casting the key roles, but taken on its own terms the 95-minute Disney Channel original plays like a brightly colored beach blanket, albeit one that's a little rough around its sandy edges.

So we have a fundamentally earnest movie that mocks tongue-in-cheek movies for their earnestness.

The push-and-pull between the two [main characters] is a delightful dynamic, setting the tone for other fantastic character interplays and some entertaining turns of events.

Common Sense Media

A more entertaining, clever musical than its generic title suggests.

Audience Reviews for Teen Beach Movie

For a Disney movie, this film did a fantastic job at setting itself in the 1960's. The dialogue, the costumes, the atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this,

Disney Channel's way of reviving the 60s beach party movie subgenre with the combination of "West Side Story" meeting "High School Musical 2" infected by the DCOM makeovers and being predictable while consisting a minimal amount of compels that would probably entertain some. (B-) (Full review coming soon)

Teen Beach Movie isn't my kind of movie because I'm not of age to watch but I can understand why it's good for kids. It has decent musical numbers but they are painfully cheesy and the acting isn't great either but it's fun for kids for sure and adults can potentially too. D-
