Baywatch movie quotes provide the dialogue for the film based on the classic lifeguard television show of the same name. The film was directed by Seth Gordon using a screenplay Damian Shannon and Mark Swift from a story by Jay Scherick, David Ronn, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant based on the Baywatch TV show by Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz and Gregory J. Bonann. Baywatch opened theatrically in the United States on May 25, 2017.

In Baywatch, Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) leads a team of lifeguards on a beach in Florida known as Baywatch. These are no ordinary lifeguards, rather the best of the best. Alongside him is Stephanie Holden (Ilfenesh Hadera) and C.J. Parker (Kelly Rohrbach) but they need more so they hold tryouts.

Surfer Summer Quinn (Alexandra Daddario), nerd Ronnie (Jon Bass) and Olympic gold medalist Matt Brody (Zac Efron) all try out to join Baywatch. But soon after that, Mitch learns that a dead body was found on their beach and thinks business owner Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) is running crime through the nearby Huntley Club. This leads Mitch, his current Baywatch crew and the prospective lifeguards on quite the battle to keep their beach safe.

Baywatch was just one of several films in theaters during May 2017 including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales , Wakefield, Everything, Everything, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. If you're still a sucker for the television series, check out more shows like Baywatch.

    Lifeguard Hazing

    Video: YouTube

    Mitch Buchannon: Welcome to Baywatch! You here for the qualifiers, One Direction?
    Matt Brody: What is this, lifeguard hazing? 

    Mitch welcomes Matt to Baywatch via insult, something that doesn't go over too well with Matt. Matt calls it hazing, but really, Mitch just thinks Matt is some pretty boy with no toughness.

      Sgt. Ellerbee: You turned the canals into the damn X-Games. 
      Matt Brody: Yeah, that's cause we were in lifeguard pursuit!
      Sgt. Ellerbee: There's no such thing as lifeguard pursuit. How do I explain this so you people understand? 
      Matt Brody: You people? You people?!
      Mitch Buchannon: Oh, you don't get to say that. You're just tan.
      Sgt. Ellerbee: Right on. Come on, brother.

      Sgt. Ellerbee is not too forgiving to the crew after a high-speed chase through the canals. Matt tries to explain, but things get awkward fast.

        Mitch Buchannon: Our team is the elite of the elite. We are the heart and soul of this very beach. We protect what other people don't want to protect and we go above and beyond. 

        Mitch explains a bit about Baywatch and in turn explains a bit about the Baywatch movie in these Baywatch movie quotes. You see them as lifeguards but they see themselves as the elite crew protecting their beach.

          A Good PR Opportunity

          Don Thorpe: We're staring into the abyss here. City Council's already cut our funding. It's up to us to restore the Baywatch brand. 
          Mitch Buchannon: This is the guy you'd think would be a good PR opportunity for us. He's reckless. 
          Don Thorpe: With two gold medals! How many gold medals do you have? Probably zero.

          Manager Don informs Mitch that their lifeguard squad is in jeopardy due to the city's budget cuts. While Don thinks adding Olympic medalist Matt is the key to getting them good buzz, Mitch clearly doesn't agree.
