The original Teen Beach Movie found them travelling back in time into the set of Brady’s favorite movie – “Wet Side Story” which was set in 1962. It was there they met Lela (Grace Phipps), Tanner (Garrett Clayton) and the rest of the gang in a surfers meets bikers adventure on the beach. In this sequel, Lela and Tanner find their way into our world where Mack and Brady live. They discover things such as cell phones, iPad, and sushi. Meanwhile, while they are here, the gang back home is trying to get along. Will Lela and Tanner be able to find a way back home before it’s too late?
Teen Beach Movie 2 is full of music, dancing, bright costumes, and funny cheesy lines. If you’ve seen the first movie, you’ll recognize some throwbacks. Even the song “Falling for You” returns in a surprising way! Ross Lynch and his band had the great opportunity to write a song Ross’ character Brady sings in the movie called “On My Own”. The ending song “That’s How We Do” reminded me of the ending of the classic movie, Grease. It had me wanting to join in and sing along! Even days later, I am still catching myself humming some of the tunes from the movie!
