Spring Breakers: Does It Deserve The Hype?

I watch Pretty Little Liars and because I watch this show, when I saw Ashley Benson tweeting bout her movie coming out this month, I knew I wanted to see it. To support her and her acting career. I mean, it has an all star cast ranging from James Franco to Selena Gomez. How bad could it be?


Well that is the million dollar question. All the reviews I’d seen before seeing this, said this movie was amazing and easily one of the best films of the year.

Sure. If by best, you mean sucks.

Does this movie deserve all the hype? In my opinion: HELL to the NO!

This movie was such a waste of time, I feel like my intelligence was sucked out of me with every second I kept my eyes glued to the screen.

James Franco did an amazing job, acting like a street thug, drug dealer that he was, but the storyline was tremendously lacking.

This movie seemed nothing more than a bunch of girls we’ve seen on our tv screens trying to break out of their goodie goodie molding. The artistic way in which the film was edited, didn’t leave a lot of room for a lot of lines, but lots of cut away shots to different (illegal) things these girls were doing.

I think this had potential to be a great movie, but script is in serious need of an overhaul before that can happen. So many stupid decisions are made (many of which, I don’t think most sane girls would make just to get to FL for spring break, but who knows, maybe these girls are insane) that don’t seem realistic choices, common sense was thrown out the window for the entire movie.

If you are a fan of any of these actors, then check it out to support them. It’s why I watched it. If not, and you just like movies, skip this one. Wait for it to come on HBO – at least then, you won’t waste your money…only your time.
