What parents need to know
Parents need to know that even though former Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are in Spring Breakers, it's absolutely not appropriate for teens. This is a hard-R film from controversial director Harmony Korine (Kids), and it explores the naivete of college students who expect spring break to be an otherworldy, life-changing experience. There's constant, overt sexuality (including three-way sex scenes and lots of toplessness), substance abuse (mostly marijuana and cocaine), swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), and violence. People die from being shot and are injured with bullet wounds. Underage men and women are arrested and indulge in sexual acts with strangers they've just met. Bottom line? Every terrible thing that a parent could imagine happening during spring break is unflinchingly on display in this envelope-pushing satire of teen comedies.
