The brand new "Baywatch" movie got slammed big time by Movie Critics after it premiered in theaters yesterday. The immensely negative reviews were also mirrored in online reviews and entertainment publications, which rated the movie way below average.

Worst of the worst, according to online ratings

In the review aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes, the movie got an approval rating of just 19 percent. This rating was a combination of reviews submitted by 93 movie critics online. All of the critics rated the movie with an average score of just 4.2 out of 10.

The general consensus on the website states that the movie just wasn't able to live up to the hype.

Some reviewers on the website don't agree with the R-rated take on the Television Series, with some criticizing the performance of the movie's ensemble cast. Similarly, the movie's ratings on Metacritic were also disappointing, with the site giving it a score of just 38 out of 100.

Publicly humiliated

Aside from the online review websites, well-known entertainment publications such as Variety and Empire have also revealed their take on the movie. Variety's review of the film didn't hold back and outright called it a "trashy" and "obscenity-and-insult-laced" adaptation of the television series.

The publication's movie critics apparently didn't appreciate the film's satirical take on the 25-year-old television series. Empire, on the other hand, mentioned that the movie was likely trying to be the next "21 Jump Street," but it apparently ended up being "21 Chump Street" instead.

The cast's reactions

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently published a post on Twitter to express his reaction towards the movie's abysmal reviews. Johnson plays the role of the iconic Mitch Buchannon, a character that was originally played by David Hasselhoff. In Johnson's post, the actor explained that there is apparently a "disconnect" between the movie critics and fans of the movie.

The actor also indirectly told critics that the movie was meant to make audiences "laugh & have fun. "

"Baywatch" opened in over 2,554 theaters across the United States.

The movie managed to rake in around $1.25 million at the box office on its first night. The film is projected to earn at least $40 million during its first week, which will hopefully increase to make up for the $60 million production cost. Along with Johnson, the movie also stars Zac Efron as Matt Brody, Priyanka Chopra as Victoria Leeds, Alexandra Daddario as Summer Quinn, and Kelly Rohrbach as C.J. Parker.
