The Good, the Bad and the Hot Lifeguards:

• The movie is exactly like its TV series counterpart, filled with brawns and beauties, but not much brains.

• Based on the trailers, we can already expect what sort of movie this will turn out to be - a movie with plenty of dirty jokes and a lot of slow-motion jiggling.

• It's not like the movie is not entertaining at all, to a certain degree, the movie is funny and it has a couple of great action scenes, but sometimes it seems more like a parody than an actual movie.

• Even though the movie features so many A-listers, it still ends up being a shipwreck.

Trivia:

• Zac Efron gave Dwayne Johnson all the nicknames to call him in the movie, like One Direction and Bieber.
