ROSS LYNCH IS CRUISIN FOR A BRUISIN IN NEW "TEEN BEACH MOVIE" CLIP The movie definitely has a Pleasantville meets Beach Blanket Bingo, but for tweens and teens. "Teen Beach Movie" introduces confident, resilient surfer McKenzie and her carefree boyfriend, Brady, a fan of the retro surf musical movie, "Wet Side Story." On the morning of McKenzie's planned departure for boarding school, she and Brady catch one last epic wave which mysteriously carries them right into "Wet Side Story," circa 1962, where they meet Seacat, Giggles, Rascal and Cheechee, among others. Amidst the spontaneous song and dance, there's trouble in paradise — it's bikers versus surfers for control of the local hangout, but Mack and Brady unwittingly interfere with the movie's star-crossed plot, one that would pair a surfer (teen matinee idol Tanner) and a biker (Lela, the sister of Butchy, the biker gang's leader). Typical of the teen beach movie genre, a kooky subplot has mad scientists Les Camembert and Dr. Fusion scheming to alter weather patterns and take over the local hangout — and then the world.
The soundtrack for the film will be available July 16, the movie will premiere on Disney Channel July 19 and will hit DVD on July 30. Sing Along and Dance Along editions of Teen Beach will air July 21 and July 27, respectively.
