This movie is terrible. It's worse than terrible. And it only fits in the genre of "comedy" because you will spend the entire time laughing that you spent money to see this piece of trash. It's not insightful or artistic. It is crap and sometimes crap is just crap. It is a complete waste of your time, don't even rent on Redbox or watch on tv later. It's not even worth free.

I'll start off saying that the cinematography in this film was stellar. It was amazing, and eye-catching, and unique. I just LOVED it.
Yes, there was tons of partying in this film, but it had a lot of deeper content. If you were watching the film correctly, you could easily see the deeper psychological context, which was displayed mostly by the build up and repetition of sound. The greatest performance was James Franco, of course, who never faltered-- I admit, I was waiting to see a note of his true self. But Franco stuck to it, and performed brilliantly. Vanessa Hudgens was very intense, and stuck to her character as well, and I hope to see more of this work from her in the future. Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine gave very good performances too. But Selena Gomez was truly lacking, and displayed her little experience in the acting field. I, nor my friend. could get a grip on what she was trying to do with her character. It was the only bad aspect of the film.

If you want to waste 2 hours of your life than this is the movie for you. There is no plot and the acting is terrible. The movie kept repeating previous footage to the point where it was just annoying. I couldn't be paid to see this movie again.

first, let me say i have no idea where people are getting the notion that this is even partly a comedy; i can't think of a single humorous moment in the entire film. the movie is an artistic, dreamlike, sometimes abstract drama. it's beautiful, in both simplistic, topless-girls-bouncing-around-in-the-sun ways, and in more complex, darker, grittier ways. it's sometimes impressionistic and not very literally plausible, and sometimes kind of harshly realistic. it doesn't spell everything out for you - it leaves it to you to fill in some blanks however you choose. if you don't want that responsibility, you may not enjoy this movie. but if you like movies that leave some things for you to decide, that sort of let you help make them in your mind, you might enjoy Spring Breakers.(paragraph break here)
Fandango's rating system is stupid: nobody can say whether you should or should not go. all they can say is whether they liked it and why. whether or not you should go is for you to decide

This is pretty much as the title says , Spring Break . Four college girls are bored and looking to put a little adventure into their lives so they decide to go to Florida for spring break . Selena is the church goer while Vanessa and Ashley are a little more on the wild side [to help finance their trip , they rob a business] . When they arrive in Florida , they meet James , a local want-to-be gangster [you may not recognize him , he wears dreadlocks and has metal on his teeth] . James gives them the thrills that were missing in their lives [a little too much for a couple of the girls] and things spiral out of control . This is the first 'R' rated movie for Selena . There is nudity [not for Selena] and drug use [yes for Selena] so this one is not for little kids .
It's rated "R" for sexual content [including nudity] , language , drug use and violence and has a running time of 1 hour & 34 minutes .
I don't think I would buy it on DVD but it would be alright as a rental .
