Brit, Faith, Candy and Cotty are best friends anxious to cut loose on their own spring break adventure, but they lack sufficient funds. After holding up a restaurant for quick cash, the girls head to the shore in a stolen car for what they discover is the party of a lifetime. They're thrown in jail -- but quickly bailed out by Alien, a local rapper, drug pusher and arms dealer who lures them into a criminal underbelly that's as lurid as it is liberating for a close-knit gang of girlfriends who are still figuring out their path.
Drama Comedy (Dark) - While three of its young female leads made their names with Disney
and/or teen-targeted programs, this is a very raunchy, violent,
adults-only dark comedy/drama. So parents of young fans of Selena
Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson should be warned that this
has a lot of sex, nudity, drug and alcohol use, and violence. Fans
of James Franco should enjoy his smaller but change of pace role.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good The strengths more than counterbalance the weaknesses and help Spring Breakers to deliver a more disturbing and substantive experience than one might expect from an exploitation-tinged title.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good 'Spring Breakers' challenges us to think about the hedonistic hell that of that annual ritual, as it segues from party film to insane crime story. It's self-indulgent, it's funny, it's dark, and it's always provocative.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average 'Spring Breakers' isn't deadly dull despite all the nudity and violence, but because of it.
NY PostFull Review Below Average 'Spring Breakers' promises all sorts of titillation, like girl-on-girl action, but in truth you're not going to get much more action than you'll find in the brilliantly cut trailer.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 30 moviegoers:
From five showings, opening weekend, we were only able to collect 30 reviews. You know a movie is really bad when it's targeted at teen males and it receives terrible reviews, even though it contains bikini clad females. These are probably the worst reviews I've seen for a teen movie. Usually, no matter how bad it is, at least some of the teen and twentysomething reviews are good, but not for "Spring Breakers."
