Hollywood sure is making a habit of learning the wrong lessons from its successes. Nobody wants all these shared universes, even if the Marvel one rules. And nobody wanted another R-rated take on a cult TV show - sure, 21 Jump Street was sweet, but CHiPs sure wasn't.

Not only owns its dumbness, but hurtles itself all the way back around through a flurry of genitalia jokes and F-bombs to splash unapologetically in an R-rated surf of winking postmodernism.

A character acknowledging that the proceedings resemble an "entertaining but far-fetched TV show" isn't enough to make Baywatch anything more than the cynical cash grab that it is.
