Saw this at a preview last night in Shepherds Bush. (Absolutely packed cinema).

The film makers have tried to do a '21/22 Jump Street' movie.
However, it doesn't work. As with the 21 Jump Street film, you have a serious storyline about a drug dealer & associated corrupt officials. mixed in with comedy set piece scenes. The problem is that there is no equivalent of Jonah Hill to drive the comedy. The first half hour or so of character establishment is funny- but the 2nd half of the film gets too serious.
Zac Efrron's character is probably the worse thing in it- as he's plays a good looking idiot, without the wit & humour that he brought to 'Bad Neighbours' 1 & 2.

The outtakes at the end of the film aren't even funny, unless you count 'The Rock', struggling to pronounce- coroner's office.
There are two cameos- one with the 'Hoff' & another with Pamela Anderson- who doesn't even get any dialogue, and is only on screen for about 15 seconds.

The film is nice to look at in 'eye candy' terms. The 2 set pieces- one in a morgue & another early on at the beach are fun to watch, along with a couple of running jokes involving a black police officer & also the pet names that 'The Rock' keeps coming up with for Effron's character. There is also some 'geek' wish fulfillment with the 'blonde'.

The Goldie Hawn / Amy Schumer film 'Snatched' which has been dreadfully reviewed, nevertheless has more jokes that land in the first 20 minutes, than Baywatch had, in its lengthy 2 hour running time.
