YMMV: Teen Beach Movie
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: C'mon, find a song in this movie that isn't this. Especially Can't Stop Singing which gets bonus points for being a song about Lampshade Hanging.
  • Ear Worm: Likewise, just about every song.
  • Foe Yay: Tanner/Butchy
  • Fridge Brilliance: Abound. Just to name a few:
    • When they're in the "real world" Mack and Brady actually surf. In the "movie" portion, Mack and Tanner are surfing in front of a green screen.
    • A few plot holes tend to show up, especially towards the middle-end How did Tanner and Lela find out about Camenbert's and Dr. Fusion's evil plan?. Of course, 1960s surfing movies had their fair share of plotholes too so it's easy to assume that the actual Wet Side Story likely had the same plotholes as well. Plus, it could be a side effect of the movie essentially trying to catch up with itself once the plot is un-derailed.
    • The opening theme is set in the present and Autotuned, but the rest of the songs are not because they're from the 60s and Autotune didn't exist yet.
  • Les Yay: Lela seems just as interested in Mack as she does Brady.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Justin Bieber makes a surprise cameo at the very end of the movie. The reaction it gets from the characters is priceless.
  • Values Dissonance: Invoked:
    Mack: Why does she need a boy to make her happy?
    Brady: Because it's 1962!
