Editorial Reviews

Both a raucous party movie and comic vehicle for three talented actresses, Spring Breakdown stars Saturday Night Live veterans Rachel Dratch and Amy Poehler along with independent-film mainstay Parker Posey. The wish-list cast does a lot with a throwaway story about longtime friends whose social failures back in college are somewhat redeemed during a spring break spent with students in Mexico. Feebly chaperoning Ashley (Amber Tamblyn), daughter of the next U.S. vice-president (Jane Lynch in another of her funny, outsize performances), Posey's Becky--who brings Dratch's Judi and Poehler's Gayle along--heads for the beach and many quasi-orgies fueled by alcohol, wet T-shirt contests, and the like. While Becky steers the reserved Ashley toward less provocative activities, Gayle finds herself adopted as den mother to a gaggle of blonde hotties and Judi begins to think maybe there's more to life than being engaged to a gay boyfriend (Seth Meyers). There is certainly a lot to like about scenes involving any or all of the film's three stars, though the rest of Spring Breakdown looks like it could have been shot for any post-Animal House college movie. The film, co-written by Dratch, also features Missi Pyle in an expertly comic role as another older woman who latches onto the craziness. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

All-season comedy fun gets sprung in a big way when Saturday Night Live veterans Amy Poehler (Baby Mama), Rachel Dratch (I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry) and Will Arnett (Semi-Pro) gear up for one huge Spring Breakdown. Thirtysomething best friends Gayle (Poehler), Becky (Parker Posey) and Judi (Dratch) have always dreamed of being fabulous. But they never grew out of being geeks. So when Becky gets the opportunity to unofficially chaperone her boss daughter Ashley (Amber Tamblyn) to the college spring-break destination of South Padre Island, the ladies decide to turn their tragically unhip lives around and party with the beer-and-bikini set. Through keg-stands, hookups and foam parties, Becky, Gayle, Judi and Ashley are about to discover that its better to stand out than to fit in.

4.0 out of 5 stars REVENGE OF THE NERDS 4? June 15, 2009
Look, I don't intend to sugarcoat the fact that this movie isn't anything groundbreaking or unforgettable or anywhere near being a GREAT comedy, but for a straight-to-video, never-heard-of-it type movie, I was throughly entertained. The charm of its stars, takes you for a 90 minute trip that you just can't seem to stop watching.

This movie isn't trying to win awards, their just trying to have fun and the fun the actors had while filming, is contagious.

Amber Tamblyn's turn as Ashley, the daughter of Senator 'Kay Bee' Hartmann would be Vice President, is adorable and endearing. This is one of the things that movie creators forget more often than most these days. Most movies fail to make the audience relate and CARE about their characters. The makers of SPRING BREAKDOWN didn't make that mistake here.

So when friends and lifelong nerds Gayle (Amy Poehler), Becky (Parker Posey) & Judi (Rachel Dratch) are sent to South Padre to keep a close eye on the Senator's daughter and keep her from making any election effecting mistakes, they get to relive the life they skipped over in their own college days.

Judi's (Dratch) late night mistake as she crawls into the wrong room and bed and wakes up with a gorgeous hunk, mistakenly thinking she did more than she really did, becomes a big movie long joke that I found quietly hilarious and surprisingly touching.

Also Missi Pyle has a supporting role as Padre bar hopper and resident Charlene. She's hilarious! What?! So drunk she hits on a tree. What?!

On a rainy day, SPRING BREAKDOWN is well worth the time for some escapism to help you forget all the BS going on in the world. Laugh a little.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a break June 9, 2009
This delightful little comedy probably only deserves three stars, but the mean-spirited (and completely unjustified and wholly unsubstantiated) one-star review needs some evening out.

The film didn't get a theatrical release and that's not a surprise, because it's pretty minor, but it also has a good heart, a fine message, and an appealing cast (with many of the finest comedy talents in the business, some in virtual cameos). And the salsa wrestling looks great in blu-ray. Probably what works against it most is the lack of truly big laughs -- sometimes you think the cast is having more fun playing at spring break than you are watching -- but it's consistently amusing and the character-driven story is worthwhile. Parker Posey (in a role one supposes was intended for Rachel Dratch's pal Tina Fey) is particularly good...and Amy Poehler looks as fine as she is funny in a bikini. Give it a break...and a look.

Ever feel like the underdog who keeps getting the short end of the stick and is just waiting for your time in the sun to come?! Well these three best friends, Gayle(Amy Poehler), Becky(Parker Posey) and Judi(Rachel Dratch) know exactly how that feels.

From college til present these girls have never caught a break, and definitely never tried to change who they are for anyone else.. this is until Becky is asked by her boss, the future vice president(Jane Lynch) to attend spring break and watch over her daughter, Ashley(Amber Tamblyn), who she believes to be a crazy, party girl.

Of course, they are all surprised to find Ashley with her friends, being very much the opposite of a party girl, who shares an odd likeness to themselves. Her very purpose of attending spring break not even to have fun, but to win back her boyfriend who recently dumped her for Mason(Sophie Monk) the 'queen' of the most popular girls at spring break, The Seven.

This movie is silly, a little unrealistic, and really funny.... sometimes. I found myself either laughing-out-loud and holding my stomach or annoyed. But overall this film is light, and packs a good message...if you can get yourself to sit through the 'all-girl talent show' and Rachel Dratch's 'fling' with super hunky Justin Hartley.... you'll see it's all about not getting caught up in the trivial things in life, making good friends, and never letting anyone make you feel inferior for who you really are.. even if you're just the 'average girl'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing June 10, 2009
By Katie T
Spring Breakdown was fresh and stands out among all the other goofy summer movies being produced. Sure the message isn't new, but it is great to finally see a funny movie where the women are actually relatable, 'flawed', realistic, funny, and the central characters. If you are looking for a movie just to relax and enjoy, this is it. It had me laughing more then any Apatow movie, and I'm giving it a five because it is a great movie for its genre. I highly recommend it for women, but I'm sure men would enjoy it as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Spend your money elsewhere September 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this film because three great comedians are in the title roles: Parker Posey, Amy Poehler, and Rachel Dratch. Through some screwy plot, the three of them end up on South Padre Island in Texas, at college spring break. If you're looking for skin, as one might expect in a spring break movie, you can forget it. There is nothing sexy about this movie and more important, three good comedians are totally wasted in a plot that makes them look like members of the PTA caught in the Animal House. Even my favorite actress in a comedy, Parker Posey, can't save this terrible movie.
