How Well Do You Know Baywatch?
Baywatch. The very name brings back a nostalgic montage of photographic memories – primarily of red and yellow swimsuit-clad femme fatales running in slow mo with their sultry, determined eyes towards the camera and their jolly bits bouncing around! Oh, and then there were also the bare-chested, testosterone pumped males whose pecs seemed to bounce with the beat of the theme song.
From shark attacks to serial killers, stalkers to would-be rapists, cyclones to giant octopi – Baywatch managed to cover everything and more in an action drama that revolved around the lives of the lifeguards of Los Angeles. David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, David Chokachi, Carmen Electra – these were the names that remained indelibly etched in our minds, even if their so-called careers did not take off much after Baywatch.
And now 2017 will soon see Baywatch, the movie, starring The Rock (instead of The Hoff) as Mitch Buchannon and Kelly Rohrbach as CJ, originally played by Pamela Anderson. The movie is supposed to be an action-comedy and the trailer itself generates a few laughs as it spoofs the original Baywatch, albeit in a good way. The movie also stars Alexandra Daddario as Summer Quin (originated by Nicole Eggert in the series) who coincidentally also played The Rock’s daughter in the disaster movie San Andreas. Zac Efron will play the role of Matt Brody, originally played by David Charvet in the series.
So let’s check you BQ – as in Baywatch Quotient– and see if you remember the series well. And even if you don’t, think of this as a refresher course that will allow you to watch the movie and make your own judgments about which to like better, he original slow mo series, or the new and refreshing comical take. We wish you the Bay-st!
