So I finally got around to seeing Harmony Korine’s newest movie, Spring Breakers, a few days ago. If you are unfamiliar, the movie stars a cast of fine looking young gals including Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Benson (pictured below respectively). The main gist is that these four college girls are bored at school and want to get away during spring break. Through a series of absurd events, they make it to spring break and party their asses off. While away, they come in contact with a rapper, played by none other than James Franco, who gets the girls into even more trouble.
This movie is an hour and a half, in your face, thrill ride. Whether you think it is a quality film or not, one thing is for sure, you will NOT be bored. Through the entire movie, though, the one thing running through my mind was, “What if this movie was a porno?!” The cast of incredibly attractive women is already rarely seen with anything but bikinis on. And let’s be honest, who among us hasn’t dreamed about the innocent Disney actresses Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens getting a little hot and heavy together.
There are so many scenes that would have been better served if the girls just took the next step and removed those bikinis. We all know one of the classic porn situations is a girl getting in trouble with the police. The officer comes in, and well, you know how the rest goes. They had the perfect opportunity for that in this movie when the girls get busted doing drugs at a party! Sadly we are forced to leave it to our imaginations and wonder what could have been.
The closest we come in the movie to actually seeing some action is when Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens join Franco in a pool and do some making out. It may not be everything that I had hoped and dreamed for, but for now, it’s still more than what you’re going to get with most movies you catch in a theater.
Overall, the movie is absolutely hilarious and wild. There’s plenty of drugs, sex, and violence to satisfy the craziest of us. Maybe we’ll get lucky one day, and these ladies will decide to give the world the sequel we all want…Spring Breakers 2: Full Exposure. Until then, I highly recommend sitting down to watch this with some friends and enjoying a few good laughs.
