Don't let the flood of hollywood loving over budget reviewers get to you, seriously.
If you are just looking for a short well done fantasy movie where basically the trailer pretty much tells you what you are exactly renting and I think all of the haters were expecting some hollywood over budget type of movie and clearly this movie is not like that at all. This movie was VERY well done with the camera work, the actors/actresses did a good job portraying themselves as stereotype people that you pretty much see today in the real world and actually poke fun of it at the same time. Sure the four girls who star in this movie are probably not you're favorite actresses but don't let that bother you since this is not some reality TV E! movie or some crap. The movie does a good job showing how sick and boring the real world is when everybody is stuck in the same 24/7 routine and bends a little bit into the fantasy type world of being showered in money and fame. I really don't understand why there is alot of hate in this movie but Once i started reading some of the bad reviews, it is clearly obvious those bad reviewers are the same type of people that think adam sandler movies like "grown up" is the best comedy movie of all time or they think the fast and the furious movies are the greatest action films of all time which is absolutely hilarious, so I chose to ignore those type of reviewers and I was glad I did because Spring Breakers will actually surprised you if you give it a chance. Plus Spring Breakers is a brilliant example of saying "you may hate this movie but at the same time you will love it" if you know what I mean. The awesome bright neon lights, the superb raw energy and a great cultural reality check type of movie as well. It is worth watching once and of course this is not the movie of the year or whatnot. Also, the director of Spring Breakers was also the writer for the underrated controversial "Kids" movie back in 1995 and even THAT movie got bad reviews by religious people/parents but turned out to be a great wake up movie for people who actually enjoy watching movies without being so damn judgemental. Plus, he directed "Gummo" as well. So if you have not seen "Gummo" or "Kids" then this movie is clearly not for you and you may be better off with watching some over budget hollywood movie.
