Terrible, explicit movie -- beware!

True exploitation filmmaking. Watching it is getting fleeced.

It's not quite the end of civilization as we know it, but it's not a good sign.

As if we needed feature length versions of MTV's "The Real World," served up this weekend is two hours of Cancun hysteria. Is it real? Yup - real dumb.

It's a document of the decline of Western civilization, and no, it's not because everyone in it drinks, has sex, and parties but because when asked if someone could film it, they said yes.

Perversely, disturbingly entertaining, and as much of a glimpse into the dark depths of human nature as a Dostoevsky novel.
July 30, 2003
With a strangely irritating editorial sensibility, the filmmakers work desperately at juicing up a narrative, but mostly meet with failure.

Never has the word "real" been used in a more liberal way, because this reality movie seems to have a tighter script than American Pie - or at least one cloned from it.

"Girls Gone Wild" meets "The Real Wold" in miniature, with Snoop Dogg's seal of approval.
June 27, 2003
With its shimmering cinematography, The Real Cancun is better at hiding the city's grimy exterior than at being fun to watch.

Unfolds with the same simplicity as any multitude of teen films that are honest about being fiction.
May 28, 2003
If you want a movie in which teenagers have a lot of sex, then rent a Larry Clark film. These "real" documentaries contain far less truth than Christopher Guest's "mock" documentaries.

Hardly qualifies as a movie.

As Forrest Gump once intoned, stupid is as stupid does. Stupid does it up big in The Real Cancun.
May 9, 2003
Whether you see it as a more-raunchy The Real World or a toned-down Girls Gone Wild, the reality of this reality movie is it's nothing we haven't seen before.
May 9, 2003
A fascinating document about the hollowness of contemporary youth culture.
May 6, 2003
The quick cuts, swooping aerial shots, and images of wet T-shirt contests don't change what this is - a bunch of self indulgent 20-year-olds massaging their egos on camera.
