8 Comedy Action Movies Like Baywatch

2017

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario

Watch on Amazon

The Baywatch 2017 movie was a long awaited addition to the Baywatch series. This movie brings back the original Baywatch cast with new actors. Mitch Buchannon has a new recruit that doesn’t exactly live up to his expectations.

Mitch, played by The Rock, is a serious mannered lifeguard with a warm touch. His new apprentice, Matt Broody, played by Zac Efron, is a halfwit with no work ethic. Matt thinks he can get through life with his looks. On top of training Matt, Mitch also uncovers a criminal plot that is threatening the bay the lifeguards call home.

Baywatch is a fun comedy action movie from start to finish. The babes are hot, the actors are amazing and the red suits and beautiful beaches will bring back memories of the past. We don’t recommend this movie for a younger audience, there’s foul language, nudity, and crude adult content. If you’re looking for some action packed entertainment paired with a lot of sexy people, watch Baywatch, and for more movies like it about crimes and comedy, check out our list below.
