A ridiculous, repetitive and empty drama.

With all of its gun sucking, constant references to Britney Spears, and overall dirtiness, you'll feel like you'll need a hot shower and a penicillin shot after viewing Spring Breakers.

Ultimately, Korine's latest proves a pointless trip through spring break hell.

An intriguing cinematic spectacle: an awful film that seems aware - nay, aggressively boastful - of its own awfulness.

Director Korine obviously wants to make some profound comment about the debauchery of Floridian spring-breaking but he's sucked into the whole sleazy world head-first.

Attractively fizzy pic may be a shock to the system for fans of teen queens Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, but remains pretty toothless titillation by its writer-helmer's standards.

However self-aware Spring Breakers' sleaze is, there's something creepy about it as a male perspective on young women.

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.

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.

'Spring Breakers' is so unrelentingly base, vulgar and titillating that it's ultimately exhausting. And no matter how artful your intentions are, I still think you need characters to draw you in. (Complete Content Details for Parents also available)

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.

Ironic exploitation is still exploitation, after all.

If you can look beyond Harmony Korine's misogynistic, uncomfortably leering view of the women in his film, there is some stuff to enjoy, though the film is held back by an unfortunate lack of substance.

( ... ) for anyone refusing to acquiesce that this degree of 'girl power' is less a rite of passage and more like a collective suicide plunge onto a bed of six inch nails, perhaps Korine is right to be so provocative.

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.

There are very few movies I regret having wasted my time on or are completely disgusted by. "Spring Breakers" is the definition of disgusting. The characters had no substance and the storyline had nothing to offer.

With its violence, copious drug use, threesomes and scenes of the women in tiny bikinis, the movie revels in the debauchery without saying much about it.

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

Traditionally, spring break flicks are teen angst induced romantic comedies. Brain death is the best description. Spring Breakers is a totally new way to do that brain death.
