The original series took place in Santa Monica beach, California. Baywatch movie filmed mainly on Deerfield beach in South Florida. The filming also included portions of Boca Raton and seven other Broward County locations.

Few of the lifeguards at the Boca Raton beaches included as a stand-in to help out the cast and, the crew get the technicalities right. The shooting also increased the economy of the area it was shot in while making those present a fan of the film before it even released.

Final Thought

Though there are many negative reviews about this film, I love watching this film for its beautiful locations. Moreover, the plot is funny and runs smoothly. The comedy in this film is what sells it the most. Some of the jokes are actually great and unexpected. The others are cheesy though. It had so much to offer, funny and entertaining from beginning to end. The acting was fantastic and the actors in this really know how to keep you entertained.

Above all, if you wanna relax and laugh louder watch this film. There are some fascinating visuals with wonderful locations that you may enjoy also. But, If you are in analyzing mood according to film grammar or aesthetic value of a film then avoid it. It is something in a way that doesn’t mean to be analyzed. Don’t judge this film, just enjoy watching!
