Sleep walking through your adolescence? This is not the movie for you.
Korine is the true hard OG, only with a sense of humor. The best suggestion I can make to those who are panning this film on Fandango - go see it again and this time compare Faith's jelly rolled youth minister to Alien.
I also suggest you hit Netflix and see some Roger Altman movies ("Nashville", "MASH", "McCabe and Mrs. Miller") Check out anything by Werner Herzog there and other places I mention below. Then head on over to Amazon Instant to see the 1960 Jean-Luc Godard film "Breathless". You'll probably have to go to your local public library to get a copy of Godard's, "Two or Three Things I Know About Her". It's a real eye-opener.
Other reviewers have spelled out good cases for this film, so I won't bother to repeat them. One thing, this isn't an "art film". This is the sort of film Quentin Tarantino plays over and over in his head and would love to put out. If he only could.

From the fact that the religious girl's name was "Faith" to the predictable, over-dramatized spring break attitudes of the co-eds in repeated scenes, this movie was filth. Vanessa Hudgens' acting was atrocious - her acting was solely sexual advances and flirting with Ashley Benson. There was no plot to this film, and the hand held camera just about gave me motion sickness. I really expected more from this film, seeing as critics like it and it did well in film festivals, but it was by far one of the worst I've seen in a long time.

This movie was not what i expected it to be. It totally took a turn in a different direction but was still funny with some serious moments. Way too much nudity, but i guess that is what happens on Spring break. Funny to see James Franco out of character as well as Vanessa Hudgens.

Spring Breakers is a unique film to come to theaters that is not an average teen movie to say the least. If your intentions are to see a funny teenage movie about hot girls on spring break DO NOT see this movie.
Spring Breakers exposes the viewer to all senses and even shames their eyes. Although visually beautiful, your stomach will feel as though you are watching a real life horror movie. There are scenes that make the viewer think "is every one watching this? should I be closing my eyes right now?"
Korine executed this movie beautifully balancing an uneasy feeling between young naive girls and the illusion of a "bad ass" lifestyle.
If you have seen Harmony Korine's other movies prepare to be entranced, if you have not, just keep an open mind.
