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.

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 .

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.

This is a must see! By far the absolute best movie I have seen in a long time. James Franco's performance is Oscar worthy. If you loved the movie Havoc, and I mean who didn't, you're in for a treat. How can a movie be awesome AND horrible...watch to find out!

James Franco and Selena Gomez give stellar performances. The script could be tighter and some logic didn't jive. But it was a good script for the most part. Very good directing and editing. Great performances from all of the main cast. I liked it a lot and hope it becomes a classic! I see glimpses of Vanessa Hudgens winning an Oscar at some future point of her career.
There were people in the audience where I saw it in Santa Monica, California from all age groups, all genders,class and races! I think this movie is going to make a lot of money!!!!
