I received Disney Channel "Teen Beach Movie" products in exchange for a post about the film. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Teen Beach MovieNow that summer is in full swing, our thoughts naturally gravitate toward the sand and the sun.  Who wants to be cooped up indoors when the warm temperatures and bright sunshine are virtually screaming for us to come out and play?  When I was a kid, I used to love watching the classic Beach Blanket Bingo movie starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello.  It was the perfect mix of surfing and singing and a virtual summer-viewing staple.
