I have a 16 year old and a 6 year old, they both loved to watch the Disney Channel and had seen adverts about Teen Beach Movie frequently on there and they both wanted to watch it. We were asked if we would like to review some merchandise from the movie and also watch the movie. We were going to watch it anyway and the kids already love Ross Lynch from Austin & Ally.
We received 2 Teen Beach Movie Tumblers with straws, a Teen Beach Movie beach towel, 2 pairs of Teen Beach Movies sunglasses, a signed photo of Ross Lynch, 2 packs of sweet popcorn and a bag of sweets.
The popcorn and sweets were eaten throughout the movie as I had expected. Both of the girls decided to have their drinks in their new tumblers especially for the movie but they both use them as their regular drinks cups now. The tumblers are sturdy and approximately 15cm tall. I like that the lid screws on securely and that the straw has a fatter part on one end so the straw cannot be pulled out and in as kids usually do. The picture on the tumbler is of Teen Beach Movie logo along with Brandy, McKenzie, Tanner and Lela.
The Beach towel again has Teen Beach Movie written on it and has Brady and McKenzie on a surfboard. This has been used a lot since receiving it. It is really soft and washes up really well. The colours do not run. The only problem we have is that the girls will fight over who is using it.
The Sunglasses have dark red arms with Teen Beach Movie written on them and the girls both love them.
You can purchase the tumblers and towel from The Disney Store.
Now a little about Teen Beach Movie itself. Over 8.4 million tuned in to watch the premiere of the movie on July 19th.
Teen Beach Movie stars Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally) as Brady, and Disney Channel newcomer Maia Mitchell as McKenzie. These teen surfing sweethearts ride the last wave of summer together, one that mysteriously takes them into a classic beach party movie, Wet Side Story. There it’s surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout… and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance! Now Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently alter the movie’s romantic storyline – as the handsome leading man, surfer Tanner, is falling for McKenzie while biker girl Lela is swooning for Brady. What will happen and will they ever make it back to their real lives?
My girls loved it because they knew most of the characters from other Disney Channel programs and they both love Ross Lynch. They were glued to the movie from start to finish. They liked the plot of Brady and McKenzie going back in time to an old movie and that they both found it difficult to get the characters back into alignment of the movie so they could go back home.
If I had to sum up the movie I would say it is a mix of Grease, High School Musical and Back To The Future.
If your teen daughters have not seen Teen Beach Movie yet I have no doubt that they will love it and Disney Channel will be sowing it again this Saturday at 8am.
