Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut, ‘Baywatch’, which also stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will release in India on 2nd June. The film, which is the latest addition to the slew of the TV show, is being condemned for its immature content and bad acting.
Baywatch is one of the least rated films at the US box office, with 42 reviews, it has a 14% “rotten” ratings on Rotten Tomatoes’ tomatometer. When it comes to critic reviews, the films has almost failed to create any impact.
Reed Tucker of New York Post wrote,
It all feels woefully juvenile and many of jokes strain harder than Hasselhoff sucking in his gut back in Season 9. It washes up on the beach like a dead whale.
The Guardian’s Steve Rose wrote for Priyanka,
Even Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra, the underused villain of the piece looks like she was contractually obliged to show as much flesh as permissible.
However, even in this incredible gibberish, there are six viewers who weren’t totally put off by the film. Knight agreed that the film isn’t the best, but it still deserves some credit.
Luxford awarded the film a 3-star rating. He wrote,
With Johnson, the film has a star at the height of his powers. The seemingly boundless charisma and confidence of the actor make him a perfect fit for the leading role. He also has a surprising knack for comedy, making his back-and-forth repartee with Efron, one of the film’s strengths.
Well, the road seems unclear for Priyanka’s Hollywood debut. The film is directed by Seth Gordon and also stars Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass, with cameos by original TV show actors, Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.
