Spring Breakers is a Red Bull and Vodka fuelled, overly stylized, directionless, boobie filled experiment... kinda like spring break. A group of delinquent girls land in jail during spring break and get bailed out by a low life gangster played by James Franco. I actually think this movie was made to be watched high with all the repetitiveness, quick edits and zooms. There were moments (as this movie got worse and worse) when I thought, this is gonna shoot out the other end as something brilliant like a heist or coming of age flick. Nope, never amounts to much and watching James Franco sing a Britney Spears ballad at a grand piano was the moment I realized this is pretty terrible. You can almost see what this movie was suppose to be and that's what makes it so disappointing. Curiously cast and directed. Meh soundtrack.
