Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson doesn’t need the electoral college — he has the popular vote!

Wait, that’s wrong on a great many levels… Ha!

What’s also wrong, according to critics anyway, is the star’s new movie Baywatch, which is getting sand kicked in its face by critics. But the future POTUS has a response to the haters.

First, a fan tweeted to The Rock and costar Zac Efron about the awful critical response:

To which Dwayne lightheartedly responded:

To be fair, as of this writing the movie is up to a 20% on RottenTomatoes, so y’know. It’s not ALL bad.

To see how bad the lifeguard flick is drowning with critics, check out our review roundup (below):

Stephanie Merry, The Washington Post: “Johnson being Johnson, he’s still a delight to watch. But there’s only so much a charismatic giant can do when he’s up against a blend of lazy gross-out humor and inane male wish fulfillment weighed down by terrible editing and lame action.”

Brian Lowry, CNN: “Crude and silly, searching for the laughs in this R-rated comedy is the equivalent of scouring the beach with a metal detector looking for lost items.”

Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly: “The lowbrow humor is lazy and repetitive, and the action scenes are flat-out terrible.”

Jody Mitori, St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “…struggles to maintain the comic tone as the movie drags on with repetitious jokes and bickering over why the patrol team doesn’t defer to the police.”

Jocelyn Novek, Associated Press: “It eventually gets wearisome, despite the best efforts of Efron and especially Johnson, who can enliven any scene.”

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times: “Johnson and Efron are as likable as ever, but they’ve played better-developed characters on Saturday Night Live.”

Max Weiss, Baltimore Magazine: “Most of the “jokes,” such as they were, have a mean-spirited edge and virtually none of them made me laugh.”

The thing is, the bad reviews aren’t even really all that bad! For instance Soren Anderson of the Seattle Times wrote:

“It’s all just a day at the beach, harmlessly fun and instantly forgettable.”

So what’s wrong with that?

Baywatch opens everywhere Friday, May 25. Are YOU going to see it despite the critics??
