Spring Breakers Reviews
June 15, 2021
Is it social commentary on today's young adult culture? I don't see how. Is it satire? I surely wish it was. Instead this was an earnest try at something...I don't know what.

Alien is the only character in "Spring Breakers" who feels like an actual human being; everyone else is just there to be ogled over or used for shocking imagery.

Before the long, the movie turns into a numbing trailer for itself.

Spring Breakers is a crowd-pleaser, although given its confounding creepiness, the crowd it pleases most is surely the forty-year-old filmmaker's intellectual fan base.

As transgressive as is, it never quite makes the leap to becoming transcendent of the pop culture it seeks to detonate.

No character, no real sense of narrative, no meaningful message. It's just terrible, shallow people doing terrible, shallow things.

A pseudo-shocking, recent entry in the ongoing, extremely competitive, worst-movie-ever-made contest.

Spring Breakers, at 90-ish minutes, is two-thirds Girls Gone Wild-debauchery, and that is the stomach-able part.

From it's pointless script, sloppy acting and dreadful direction, Spring Breakers is not nearly as profound as it pretends to be.

The movie is too calculated to shock. Korine just wants to be the danger he's warning us about.

...a thoroughly detestable piece of gutter trash masquerading as some kind of abstract piece of pop art.

I couldn't get past the feeling that this was basically the director's softcore material masquerading as a feature film

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.

"Spring Breakers" might engender multiple viewings and a cult status à la "Scarface." Korine, unfortunately, jumps the gun by frequently repeating lines of Franco's dialogue in voiceover, as if "Spring Breakers" already is on repeat.

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.

( ... ) 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.

Korine would feel he'd failed badly were I to have enjoyed it.

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.
