A take on today's current too-much down-to-earth and unambitious materialistic youth, fully living the American Dream. - 5/10

There's no denying that Spring Breakers exploits the worst possible scenario for a group of no-so-innocent college girls. There's plenty of nudity and partying (read sex, drugs, and drinking games) from start to finish; however, there's also the type of mayhem that involves a hilarious "gangster" played by James Franco and plenty of guns, money and drugs. It's also worth mentioning that this movie doesn't have a conventional story. It's mostly storytelling in a daze, which works well for the most part -- it's just not the straightforward storytelling that most audiences are used it. SPRING BREAK FOREVER!

Yes horrifying and disturbing- the excess is the point.. James Franco - as always - worth the price of the admission- the direction and cinematography were interesting- some great mosaic shots and jump cuts- OK- not for the kiddies- for the film afficianados only .... the primary relationship is clearly between the ******* couple.. how rare is that to begin with???...So OK haters- I get it.. you don't want your Disney princesses to be antiheroes.. but there is clearly a moral voice in the film.. the fact that it is nuanced and subtle I actually prefer.. so not meant for everyone.. and the fact that there are primary ,secondary and tertiary layers to the film means that some viewers will respond to it on the purely manifest level (all the discussions of too much sex and violence etc) and then the complex latent level- I applaud the actresses for taking a risk- but as with any art- the masses are not really going to get it - or even supposed to get it...pack your knives and go-

Its sad that this movie has so many Disney Channel actresses and many young girls will want to see this movie. As a father that worries me. I'm going to spoil the ending but in particular it makes me worry that it doesn't shows any consequences to the bad behavior of the protagonists. In the end they drive up into the sunset like heroes who bagged their bad behavior to experimentation and a "good" experience.

This was an awesome movie. The actors, director, crew, etc., did not take it seriously at all so the audience shouldn't either. James Franco was brilliant. 'Spring break lasts forever.'
