Teen Beach Movie Madness

Teen Beach MovieThis Friday, Teen Beach Movie premieres this Friday at 8 p.m., and of course I am going to be watching.

I feel a little bit like this film was made for me: not only am I old enough to appreciate the teen beach movies of the 50s and 60s, but I’m also old enough to remember and appreciate High School the Musical. And the idea of merging the two together … weeee! Fun times.

Plus, the plot looks sort of epic. Here’s the trailer:

In case you can’t add that up, the film’s two main characters are magically transported into a fictional beach-movie-version of West Side Story. So not only do we have Disney teens and beach movie inspiration, but there’s also a twist on a Romeo and Juliet subplot?!? YES, PLEASE!

I am totally excited, and I am definitely putting some pineapple juice in my beach tote and getting ready to mix up some awesome, tropical-inspired cocktails. And popcorn. Definitely popcorn. But if you’re looking for something a bit fancier, the movie’s official website includes printables and recipes to make your viewing perfectly coordinated.

Anyone wanna play LINGO BINGO with me?! (Please say yes. Please say yes. Please say yes!)
