Agreed on both counts.

The Rock "saved" "Central Intelligence" for me. I went in expecting not to like it but The Rock had me laughing a lot. And I say that as someone who is not a huge Rock fan in terms of comedy. The Rock is likable and seems to go for it when it comes to comedy so he has been growing on me. He is easily one of the more fun Hosts on SNL.

And as I've said already, Efron is hilarious in Raunchy Comedies.

And let's not forget the gorgeous Priyanka Chopra is in this.

I prioritize Alexandra Daddario over Priyanka Chopra here. Because Daddario is playing a lifeguard and Chopra is not.

A new trailer is supposed to be out this Wednesday, plus from Facebook the Rock posted this new poster and it confirms the R rating.

I'm just glad they didn't put Josh Gad in the Josh Gad role. Movie seems like dumb fun. If we get Daddario nude in this, then it'll be a worthwhile matinee.

Although I plan to watch both, I'm actually looking forward to this more than Fast 8. I think I need a good riotous belly laugh and Johnson can be fun with comedy.

Hopefully Paramount didn't blow their load and show all the funniest scenes in the trailers.

Ahh, man, I loved Baywatch back in the day.

Would have been nice if they tried a TV reboot instead of a big-screen movie.

Looks like they went the 21 Jump Street route with this, which I think is smart. Hopefully the movie is as entertaining as the trailer.

That's exactly what came to my mind. I wouldn't be surprised if they slapped on the trailer "From the creators of 21 Jump Street movie".

Okay, this looks hilarious. Had no real desire to see it but I'll be there opening weekend now.

I agree this actually looks pretty funny but from the trailer it was Efron who brought the funny. Between his reaction while falling into the pool and the morgue scene Efron looks like the one doing most of the physical comedy here.

Basically looks like a third 21 Jump Street movie, and I'm good with that.

Same here. Might even wait for a free library rental. To me, when The Rock does comedy, seems so forced and fake.

Re: Baywatch (2017, D: Gordon) S: The Rock, Efron, Daddario

Industry pundit says it's tested well.

http://www.hollywood-elsewhere.com/2...hake-baywatch/

“I can tell you that everyone is surprised at how well that Baywatch plays and has tested,” the guy says. “It went through development for years and years, but somehow the tone came out right and it apparently channels The Rock’s sweet spot. [Allegedly] the best comedic use of Johnson to date. There’s a satirical current that sends up Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay cinema, mocking the omnipresent shallowness and overt calculation of every set piece, plot point and storyboarded CGI action sequence. Baywatch wasn’t super-expensive, save for its stars, and will surprise audiences as a smart, funny film that works like gangbusters.”

They need to have this theme song for the movie.

Rock said this would have a lot of nudity, so I'm in.

Fixed. The world needs more gratuitous nudity it has become way too uptight.

I really hope there is a new cover of "Current of Love" in the movie, it played over the end credits for seasons 2-4. Its Hasselhoff at his best.
