What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Paul Eksteen quote iconBaywatch ripe for spoofing ... not quite.

Die Burger
Herman Lategan quote iconKoop eerder Jelly Tots, dis goedkoper en lekker.

Jim Judy quote iconWhile it has its moments, I think all involved would have been better served going much further and deeper into true satire. After all, a show most famous for slow-mo views of bouncing boobs deserves nothing more than a terrific spoof, something the Brady Bunch movie and Airplane flicks proved could work quite well. Such an approach could have been the cinematic life preserver this film would have needed to win over critics like me. Baywatch ultimately sinks.

Tomatometer quote iconBaywatch takes its source material's jiggle factor to R-rated levels, but lacks the original's campy charm -- and leaves its charming stars flailing in the shallows.
