Disclosure: I received Disney Channel “Teen Beach Movie” products in exchange for a post about the film. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As hokey as it may sound, I genuinely like watching beach movies from the 1960s. What I like about movies such as “Beach Blanket Bingo,” “ Surf Party” and “Ride the Wild Surf” is that they are such throw-backs to the era – cute surfer dudes, beach bunnies, rock ‘n roll and lots good, clean fun! The surfing was always big and the spontaneous dancing/singing was just a typical day at the beach.
Now the Disney Channel is dragging out the old beach blanket and shaking off the sand for a modern musical twist this summer with “Teen Beach Movie” that premieres on Friday, July 19 at 8 PM, ET/PT.
