It's a known fact that moviegoers love two things: watching Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stare logic in the face and kick its ass and seeing Zac Efron without his shirt on. (Just me?) By some benevolent force, we now get to witness both of those things in one glorious film: Baywatch. The first trailer for the R-rated beach romp is here, and it's even more magnificent than that time Johnson and Zefron had a shirtless pull-up contest on the beach.
There's plenty of dirty jokes (why *do* Efron's balls sound like 3-year-old girls?) and meta humor (Kelly Rohrbach's CJ Parker always looks like she's running in slo-mo, ha) to go around, but it's Johnson and Efron's off-beat bromance that anchors the film. In Baywatch, The Rock stars as veteran lifeguard Mitch Buchannon, who isn't much of a fan of the team's cocky newcomer Matt Brody (Efron), a gold medal-winning swimmer who needs a bit of an image overhaul after a recent scandal. (Sound familiar?)
But let's not kid ourselves here: Johnson and Efron bring the heat with their spray-tanned, baby-oiled muscles, but it's Priyanka Chopra's villainess who brings the slayage.
