Perversely, disturbingly entertaining, and as much of a glimpse into the dark depths of human nature as a Dostoevsky novel.
| Original Score: 3/5

"Girls Gone Wild" meets "The Real Wold" in miniature, with Snoop Dogg's seal of approval.

While some may find the film off-putting like the other TV reality shows, the film itself is quite appealing and funny and should make a boatload of money from individuals who want to venture into someone else's world.

More closely resembling a "Girls Gone Wild" video than a work of traditional cinema, "The Real Cancun" delivers a unique brand of glossy sex appeal, thanks to a fairly developed array of variously sordid characters.

There's an interesting story in every person -- that's why 'reality tv' is so popular.

If you're a fan of reality shows you'll probably enjoy this movie. But do you really want to pay $10 to see something that you can watch on TV for free?

May be more at home on a television screen once it goes to DVD, but it is admittedly a lot of fun all the same.

The unscripted result is undeniably entertaining, though calling it 'reality' is a bit of a stretch.

There's a case to be made for The Real Cancun as a document of the mating dance as well as an unintentionally poignant film about the brevity of youth.

For some of us there is a certain anthropological appeal to the mating rituals (not to mention the actual mating) on display here.

Reality Land is a village built on lowest common denominators -- the cheapest, the dumbest, the wildest -- that Bunim and Murray well know often leads to the most fun.

If you let yourself be immersed in its irrelevance, it actually has some enticing moments, which to some moviegoers might be the nipple-pierced twins' incestuous striptease.

It's fascinating stuff to watch, as well as enlightening (especially if you're a parent paying for college tuition).

Like the average spring breaker, I enjoyed every minute of it, but felt totally despicable the minute it was over.
