Teen Beach Movie DVD Review
Kidzworld reviews the new Disney Channel DVD Teen Beach Movie!
Disney Channel unleashes Tanner, Seacat, Giggles, Rascal, Butchy, Cheechee, Brady and Mack with today's iTunes pre-order of the surf-rock/pop soundtrack for Teen Beach Movie, an exuberant song, sand and surf fest set inside a retro beach party movie.The television premiere of Teen Beach Movie, a Disney Channel Original Movie was on Friday, July 19th on the Disney Channel.
Teen Beach Movie introduces confident, resilient surfer McKenzie and her carefree boyfriend Brady, a fan of the retro surf musical movie, "Wet Side Story". On the morning of McKenzie's planned departure for boarding school, she and Brady catch one last epic wave which mysteriously carries them right into "Wet Side Story," circa 1962. Amidst the spontaneous song and dance, there's trouble in paradise - it's bikers versus surfers for control of the local hangout but then Mac and Brady unwittingly interfere with the movie's star-crossed plot that would bring together a surfer -- teen matinee idol Tanner -- and a biker -- Lela, the sister of the biker gang's leader, Butchy. Typical of the teen beach movie genre, a kooky subplot has mad scientists scheming to alter weather patterns and take over the local hangout and then, the world.

The Bottom Line
If you're a fan of High School Musical and summer, well, Teen Beach Movie is going to be the answer to your prayers. Combining the most fun elements of the beach movie genre and the high school genre along with some great tunes is a recipe for success, and the best part is you can still enjoy when summer's over! The movie cleverly taps into the classic beach movies of the past while incorporating some new ideas, and while Teen Beach Movie isn't quite at the level that High School Musical is at, it's a fun flick for a summer TV Movie and you'll get to see some up-and-coming Disney stars before they make it big.
