Customer Reviews

This movie suffers from bad writing, acting, and story line.
W. McKee
Not worth your time watching, after 30 minutes I had to turn it off.
Ryan
The movie wasn't too bad, just had a hard time getting into it.

I was really, really surprised by this film. The preview does not really do it justice, as this is NOT a film about a white gangsta and a crew of Girls Gone Wild armed robbers. Yes, there is a white gangster, and there are sexy girls in bikinis robbing and shooting. But the film is not actually about those facts. The film is a study in CONTRAST (both visual and thematic), and in challenging your expectations. The filmmaker is really, really good at changing gears once you think you understand the characters' motivations, or where the plot is going. At first, Franco's "Alien" character seems like a con-man hustler, and you feel an almost paternal fear for the girls as he sucks them into his world, but this perspective does not last long, and soon you are starting to wonder if the girls are really just using him as he grows more emotionally attached to them. They turn the tables on his apparent supremacy in a scene involving his gun collection and his bedroom, and the sexual dynamic of the group shifts radically.

On that topic, there is surprisingly little sex in the film. The scenes of spring break debauchery leave the actual act to the imagination for the most part, and by the time sex actually occurs in the Franco-Girls gang, it is far more emotional than you have been expecting. The scene where Franco's "Alien" serenades the ladies with a Brittany Spears song SHOULD have been a point of ridicule, but as it was happening, all I could think was that this is EXACTLY how a character like Alien would express his genuine emotions.

The film is shockingly beautiful, visually. The moments of color contrast are perfect.

Just look at all those 1-star reviews, my my. Why do I get the feeling that those 1-star rates and comments are from a bunch of guys in their early 20s going, "wtf"? They had hoped for something stupid and sexy; what they got was an art film from a moralist who has a lot to say about the gangsta culture embraced by bored Caucasian suburban youth. It's a culture that glorifies violence and ostentatious consumption ("Look at all my S***!" James Franco howls with glee while jumping up and down on his ridiculous bed). It's a culture that encourages young women to look and act like whores while simultaneously pretending to some sort of you-go-girl faux-feminism. I am Woman, hear me roar -- now watch me shake my booty like Beyonce. Feminism for Dummies. This culture is now mainstream among the under-25 set. "Spring Breakers" attacks that culture by taking its precepts to their logical conclusion. By doing so, director Harmony Korine (male, btw) also attacks the generation responsible for it. No wonder y'all hate this movie, yo. Not only has this movie gotten on your nerves, I suspect it has struck a few nerves, too.

One thing's for certain: Increasing equality between the sexes is creating more aggressive females, sexually or otherwise. The movie shows this paradigm in action with a superb scene between Franco and two of the girls in his bed. After thinking that he's impressed them both with his gangsta routine, he's ready to get down to business with them ... but they turn the tables on him, holding him at gunpoint (he has guns lying around everywhere) and sticking the guns in his mouth. The gender roles are reversed, or, more interestingly, blurred.

First off, this film is intended to be disturbing, and to create knee jerk reactions. Sometimes art wants us to examine ourselves, and often, through that process, things may hit a little too close to home. This movie is a huge commentary on the "party" scene and the absolute idiotic, reckless, behavior college age adults will put themselves into in the meaning of having fun. I have no doubt parents out there will be mortified to think their teenager is on Spring Break participating in the hedonistic lifestyle choices portrayed in the movie, or more mature older adults will think back to their own shameful mistakes of their youth, which is kind of the point. The characters are mostly one dimensional, plot is sparse, violence, nudity, drugs use, and hedonism are abundant but it's obvious all of these factors contribute to the message of the movie and Harmony Korine's comments on the the culture he is mocking. I also love that the slow paced "art" film quality of this movie is a harsh and fascinating contrast to the gratuitous excess of the violence, drug use and overly sexed party scenes. A lot of people are not going to like this movie at all, and I actually feel sorry for someone who goes into this movie thinking they are going to see a feel good road movie about Spring Break. This is a very dark, satirical, look at what today's youth are exposed to and what they might find themselves falling into.

I suspect that young people old enough to see this movie, thinking it was another "Project X" or something like it, were in for a surprise. Sure the movie starts out with all the "B's", i.e. booze, beer, bongs, babes and boobs. And make no mistake, there are plenty to each to go around. But there some shockers on the way.

The story has 4 extremely bored small town coeds focused on getting to the sugary beaches of St. Petersburg, Florida. Running short of cash, three of the girls (Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine - wife of director Harmony Korine - and Ashley Benson) decide to knock over the local Chicken Shack. It works and later they reunite with the fourth girl, Faith (Selena Gomez) whose name is consistent with her religion. Off they go and when they get there, its party hardy with Faith pulling back a bit and Cotty (Korine) at the other extreme.

In a night of debauchery, the cops haul the young cuties in to the calaboose still in their bikinis. An observer from the beach scene earlier, "Alien" (James Franco) bails the ladies from the grips of the man. Franco in full-on crazy complete with cornrows, a grill and a pimped out Z-28 Camero is quite the character. Raised in the hood, he's all that, just white. He's also trouble, but the visceral excitement he brings is an aphrodisiac to 3 of the girls. Faith, the early focus of Alien's interest has the good sense to head back home.

Sometimes ultra-violent, always sexy, often comedic and usually campy, "Spring Breakers" takes a Tarantino-like turn that takes 2 of the more frisky gals (Candy and Brit) into new territory. Certainly not for everyone, I found the movie exhilarating, highly entertaining and way out of the mainstream.
