The Lifeguard: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: Young adults in crisis are common, especially in films. What prompts someone working at the Associated Press in New York City to move back home to suburban Connecticut to work in the job she had in high school as a lifeguard is the kind of thing that can only be explained away in a movie as an invigorating premise. Liz W. Garcia, who has worked as a writer on television shows Dawson’s Creek, Wonderfalls, Cold Case, and Memphis Beat, makes her feature film debut with this light comedy that feels all too familiar. (Cinema, The Lifeguard) C+/A+
