‘Baywatch’ Movie ‘Far Dirtier’ Than TV Show, Dwayne Johnson Says ‘Flesh Quota Was High’

If you thought “Baywatch” the show was racy, hold onto your monokini.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson insists that the upcoming “Baywatch” movie reboot is “far dirtier” than the classic TV series.

“We are far dirtier than the show ever was — obviously the show was a family show on at family time of day — but in the movie we could have been dirtier,” the wrestler-turned-actor told The Sun. “I think people are going to be shocked that ‘Baywatch’ has got dirty, but there are a lot of laughs.”

Johnson also said the film has a high “flesh quota” and features “gratuitous boobs, bums, abs.”

“We worked hard to make sure the flesh quota was high; there’s more gratuitous boobs, bums, abs, whatever per minute than you can imagine,” he added. “Plot was important, don’t get me wrong, but so was sorting out our slow-motion runs.”

By the looks of the film’s Super Bowl ad and trailers that debuted at CinemaCon, the raunchy, R-rated comedy is filled with four-letter expletives and genital jokes galore.

David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, stars of the original 1999–2001 series, will appear in the film. The movie also stars Zac Efron, whose beach bod apparently made Johnson envious; Priyanka Chopra; Kelly Rohrbach (as C.J. Parker, the role Anderson made famous); and Alexandra Daddario (as Summer Quinn, Nicole Eggert’s character).

The Paramount film hits theaters on May 26 — the start of Memorial Day weekend.
