‘TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2’ Plot
Picking up on the last night of summer before high school resumes, Mack and Brady ponder how their relationship might change in the year ahead. They recall the surreal summer vacation they spent at the beach together and Brady notices that Mack lost her necklace.
Back at school, the couple faces increasing tension as friends don’t understand their relationship. Mack and Brady’s best friends, Alyssa (Piper Curda) and Devon (Raymond Cham Jr.), respectively, remark that they’re surprised the two are together, given the opposing personalities. Soon thereafter, Mack and Brady drift apart, spending more time with other interests, and Brady develops a secret passion for making surfboards.
Meanwhile, there’s the entire cast of a 1960s musical, Wet Side Story, that exists in an alternate reality. They met Mack and Brady that past summer when the pair washed up on their movie set and almost got trapped in a movie from the past. Wet Side Story stars Lela (Grace Phipps) and Tanner (Garrett Clayton) happen to find Mack’s missing necklace that had washed ashore on their fictional beach, and off they go, into the ocean to return it.
They wash ashore on the same beach where Mack and Brady are having a quarrel. The two couples find each other and Brady tells Lela and Tanner that they are in the future, and that the real world is not so great, hoping they’ll jump back into the ocean and head back to their movie world. But Lela and Tanner are excited about being in the future and want to stay. So, Brady and Mack decide that the best thing to do is to bring them to school. They warn them to tone down the rockabilly musical thing beforehand, but Lela and Tanner cannot control themselves.
There is a musical staged by Lela and Tanner in the cafeteria, Lela falls for math homework and begins to blow Tanner off, Tanner tells Brady that he might not be able to make Lela happy and Brady tells Tanner that he and Mack are on a break. Then he shows Tanner his surfboards, saying that Mack doesn’t understand his passion. More and more, Lela and Tanner become a real part of the future, and Brady and Mack tell them that they’re fictional characters, showing them Wet Side Story to prove it, telling them to go back. Lela gets upset and throws Mack’s necklace back into the water, Mack and Brady dive into the ocean to find it then get in a fight. Lela and Tanner feel uncomfortable.
Back inside the Wet Side Story universe, characters are vanishing as Butchy (John DeLuca) realizes that the phenomena started happening right after Lela and Tanner disappeared. Then, he finds Mack’s necklace on the beach. The whole core group of Wet Side Story actors then proceeds to dive into the ocean to find Lela and Tanner.
They wash ashore at the “Save the Beach” dance, where Brady and Mack are avoiding each other. The cast members decide to reunite them and Brady realizes that, without the main characters on their fictional island, Wet Side Story will disappear. They try to get them to go back to their universe, but there are no waves to carry them.
The movie concludes with a bobby pin, a motorized surf board, more quarreling and accidental amnesia. But is this enough to bring Brady and Mack back together?
