      Watched this on Sunday night - have to agree, it's monumentally daft but still nonetheless enjoyable.

      It is what it is, and it knows it. I think a lot of the bad reviews overlooked that point

      Despite of the bad reactions/reviews we pretty enjoyed this. Was entertaining and would watch it again. Visuals (taking about the girls :) and the audio quality was amazing. One of the loudest sound mix i ever heard. Perfect demo disc for home cinema. :)

      The Mrs and I really enjoyed this, it you actually take it for what it is then it's great.

      It's stupid and cheesey, not a serious film.

      9/10

      Enjoyable film which did the tv series justice I felt. I thought the casting was spot on as well, the rock and effron seemed to work well together and were pretty funny at times.

      Nice to see a cameo from Pammie as well :love:

      This was terrible and on a par with the CHIPS movie.

      Seriously, why would anyone pay £25 to own this piece of crap?

      Be interesting to hear if the people slating the movie watched the tv series? I can't see that they did somehow

      Oh yes I used to watch it. It was a fun bit of fluff, just like the A-Team, Dukes of Hazzard, CHiPs. All of these shows were of their time and very entertaining, however the films that have been made of them have been trash.

      Presumably because they enjoyed the movie you would have thought? I can't imagine it being any more simple than that to work out or are you the type of person that would expect others to like exactly the same types of food, clothes and music as yourself a well?

      Well ,i think the movie reviewers crew needs to step up their game if you rate this piece of sh*t a 7 you got a serious problem for your credibility.

      I actually really enjoyed the A-Team movie! Not seen this though.

      To be fair, the movie got a 6, the overall score of 7 was for the disc which by the sounds of it is of good quality. However, polishing a turd comes to mind...

      Each to their own is all I can say. The world would be a boring place if we all loved and hated the same movies.

      I've not seen it but sounds like a good time chill out with a beer .... makes a change from the action/ Marvel genres I'll pick it up on bluray.

      This is the type of thing that will show up on Netflix in about 6 months. It would be interesting to see how many UHD copies are sold. I'm thinking... pretty much none.

      Finally got round to watching this tonight.

      I'm a sucker for a no-brainer popcorn film so can watch pretty much anything. I was very disappointed in this, it was missing something that I can't put my finger on.

      There was a lot of box ticking such as Dwayne Johnson who I enjoy in most films, then plenty of totty on show including the lovely Alexandra Daddario and the decent 4K picture and the Atmos soundtrack, but apart from a few times I found the humour to be severely lacking. It just didn't work for me and I'd have to give it 6/10. I was surprised as I fully anticipated enjoying it.

      It was almost like the writer thought his script was a lot funnier than it turned out to be. Almost forced at times. The cameos were totally forced too. Especially Pamela Anderson's one. Awful stuff.

      I thought it suffered from the same problem that the CHiPs remake did, take a family friendly show and turn it into a gross out spoof.

      Johnson and Efron had some good chemistry and I did laugh at Johnson’s boy band nicknames for him, but nice visuals and thumping audio can help but never save a dire script.
