Baywatch

Get bready for our quiz on The Rock!

Is this Dwayne Johnson? Or is it a bread roll?

Fans of the hit 1980s TV show Baywatch are probably wondering how can The Rock and Zac Efron improve on perfection?

Baywatch, available from Friday 9 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15. Also available in HD

You may be sceptical as to how a big screen adaptation of one of the telly phenomena of the eighties can improve on the windswept, perfectly coiffed perfection that was the ten-year beach run – which helped launch the careers of Pamela Anderson, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, Shaggy and Bryan Cranston (seriously, they all popped up).

There’s one simple solution – get future President of the United States, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, involved. He plays no-nonsense life-saving machine Mitch Buchannon, who heads up a team of lifeguards at Emerald Bay. The team and a new recruit – Olympic gold medal swimmer-turned-bad boy Matt Brody (Zac Efron, Bad Neighbours) – must contend with the emergence of a drug ring that threatens the bay’s future. Priyanka Chopra (Quantico) and Yahya Badul-Mateen II (The Get Down) also star, plus a couple of very familiar faces pop up – if you know what we mean…  

But before you watch it, prove yourself with our quiz on The Rock. Can you tell which of these pictures are Dwayne's head, and which are just bread? You’ll get a rise out of it.
