You start the film wondering what the moral take on all this uninventive debauchery is going to be - is it a satire? - but then realise with dismay there is no take on offer at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 4, 2013
It's the kind of 'experimental' movie hailed as edgy, subversive and transgressive, when in fact it's inept, amateurish and loathsome.

April 4, 2013
A tedious attempt to inject some style and artistic flair into the teen movie, combing outrageous behaviour with arty, slo-mo cinematography and a monotonous voiceover.

Drink, drugs, sex and robbery with minor violence.

April 4, 2013
The trouble is all in the film's wildly anxious structure, which feels largely dictated in the cutting-room by Korine going out of his way not to be accused of a message.

April 4, 2013
As a director, Korine certainly has visual style (most of it seemingly knocked off from MTV Beach Party) but doesn't seem overly concerned with fleshing out any his buff bodies with character let alone dialogue.

Spring break 4eva!

April 4, 2013
A weird, day-glo fusion of trashy exploitation thriller and arthouse pretension, enlivened by game performances from a trio of former squeaky-clean TV stars and a deliriously brilliant turn from James Franco.

April 4, 2013
It's campy and comic at times, but Korine also gives the film a downbeat, melancholic edge, with voiceovers, pointed repetition of dialogue and images, and hallucinatory camera work, sound and editing.

April 4, 2013
For all its absurdity and voyeurism, Korine brings to it a real authorial style.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 4, 2013
However self-aware Spring Breakers' sleaze is, there's something creepy about it as a male perspective on young women.

[It] quickly descends into a pointless repetition of images and vapid dialogue.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
April 3, 2013
In appearing to embrace the mainstream, erstwhile enfant terrible Harmony Korine orchestrates one of his most provocative, formally experimental films to date.
April 3, 2013
Its sparse narrative, following four bored-to-death college girls on a crime spree to spring-break paradise, is elliptical, hazy and marked by recurrence and a sense of dj vu.
April 1, 2013
Where's the provocation in a long, slow build-up to nothing in particular? Korine's movies have no answers or solutions. They just push buttons.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 1, 2013
A lurid, luminous teen-bender movie, as ludicrous as it is stylish, and Harmony Korine's best film in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Don't believe the hype...this movie is an awful mess.

It's not the wages of sin we need to worry about, it's bored co-eds desperate to feel alive
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 29, 2013
Bolstered by a pulsating techno score, Korine fills the screen with attitude and energy to spare in his most mainstream effort to date.
March 29, 2013
Garish, goofy, leering and nasty, it's meant to be hypnotic, but winds up nearly unwatchable.
Full Review | Original Score: F
