Storyline

After a nationwide casting search including college campuses across the country--Arizona State University, University of Oklahoma, University of Vermont, University of Wisconsin at Madison, University of Georgia, Texas Tech, Boston University and Washington State University--the filmmakers cast a unique collection of real people ready to explore reality's barriers beyond the limits of television, while on the ultimate Spring Break vacation, with surprising results. Designed to be the first true reality feature film, six camera crews followed the cast--made up of 16 American college students--and filmed their exploits as they immersed and indulged in the Spring Break revelry of Cancun, Mexico. Filmed 24 hours a day over the course of a week in March 2003, the movie was shot on location and reveals the students' exploits through interviews and planned group activities, as well as through their own spontaneous adventures. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Glorification of morons.
6 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie reminded me of how bad society is. Do yourself a favor and avoid this film at all costs, unless you like seeing a formulated MTV train wreck. This movie is proof that media conglomerates honestly think were all stupid mindless drones.

Thank god I live in Canada and dont have to "deal" with MTV.
