Disney is promoting their newest TV movie, Teen Beach Movie. Just like with the Big Time Rush summer beach movie, my question is why. WHY?
Seriously, why is anyone making beach movie parodies? They stopped making those movies, long before today's teenagers were born. They stopped making them before the parents of today's teenagers were born. A beach movie parody is as timely as a parody of President Lyndon B. Johnson.
I expect to see President Johnson jokes in the movie, by the way, or else I'm declaiming it as inauthentic to the genre.
While I'm on this topic, let me take a moment to official declaim Annie as inauthentic to the source material. The movie portrays President Roosevelt in a positive light, even though Harold Gray hated FDR. He often attacked American socialism in the comic strip.
Back to Teen Beach Movie. Is it a good parody of the genre you've never experienced? Is it more like High School Musical On a Beach than a Beach Boys movie? Let me know! I don't have the Disney Channel at my house, so I can't watch the movie myself.
