* HoYay:
** CJ Parker, who is so enthralling that even the girls become dumbstruck by her:
-->'''Summer''': Why does she always looks likes she's running in slow-mo?\\
'''Ronnie''': You see it too?
** When the original Casey Jean (Pamela Anderson) shows up in the end to train the new members and everyone is entranced, complete with her hair flipping in slow-motion. Lampshaded by Stephanie.
-->'''Stephanie''': This might take a while...

* HarsherInHindsight: It's probably for the best that then-WebOriginal/{{Vine}} (now Website/YouTube) star Logan Paul's cameo was deleted from the final cut, considering how he made himself [[InternetBackdraft internet public enemy number one]] at the very beginning of the next year.[[note]]Specifically for visiting Japan's infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aokigahara "suicide forest"]] and filming ''a man's dead body'' they found hanging from a tree there.[[/note]]

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Along with the double-edged sword that is making a ''Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet''-like DeconstructiveParody while still trying to appeal to the original's fans, there's the fact that the trailers clearly showed the movie was taken a VulgarHumor route. This certainly drove away potential ''Baywatch'' viewers and made it tank in the domestic box office (while faring somewhat better internationally).



** Mitch is compared to both Batman and Superman. Dwayne Johnson is signed up for a role as Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe

* HollywoodHomely: Inverted with Kelly Rohrbach as CJ. As a nod to her [[Creator/PamelaAnderson original counterpart's]] [[MsFanservice reputation]], CJ is treated as the most beautiful girl on the beach, [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer even by Summer and the other women]]. [[InformedAttractiveness This feels somewhat forced and out of place here]], as Kelly Rohrbach is not notably more attractive [[IronyAsSheIsCast (many viewers actually found her to be]] ''[[IronyAsSheIsCast less]]'' [[IronyAsSheIsCast attractive)]] than the actresses playing [[Creator/AlexandraDaddario Summer]] or [[Creator/PriyankaChopra Victoria]].
