WARNING – SPOILERS AHEAD
There’s no doubt that the ending of Teen Beach 2 was surprising.
If you watched the premiere of the movie — in which 7.5 million total viewers tuned in for — the ending saw Brady and Mack meeting for “the first time”. After getting Lela and Tanner back to their world, Lela took Mack’s advice and changed the entire movie! In the real world, that meant that Brady and Mack never met because Wet Side Story wasn’t ever made.
Fans either liked it or they didn’t, but how did the cast feel? JJJ spoke to Garrett Clayton, Chrissie Fit, John DeLuca and Kent Boyd about how they felt about the ending. Check out what they had to say:
Chrissie on social media reactions: “Someone on Twitter wrote, ‘The ending of this movie is so fantastic. It’s so feminist (in a great way) and progressive. Wow #TeenBeach2.’”
Garrett on if he would change the ending: “I actually wouldn’t change the ending! (laughs) I feel like it ended the way the second one should have.”
John on how he felt about the ending: “I really like the ending, because it’s unpredictable. It’s not what you’d expect. I think that helps set the movie apart and makes it unique and special. It’s a positive and hopeful ending.”
Kent on the ending: “I liked the ending because as far as Lela’s character you don’t have to settle you can do anything you truly desire. With Mack and Brady it shows you that true love will always find a way to each other not matter what comes in between.”
