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.

Truly the worst production ever put out by a major studio
23 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I don't think there has been another movie in history that has been released and forgotten about as quickly as THE REAL CANCUN. I myself had completely forgotten about it until recently. Shot and released between March and April 2003, THE REAL CANCUN was an attempt by reality TV producers Mary Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray to bring their successful "Real World" formula to big screen. Luckily, they failed. The Real Cancun was completely avoided, making only $5 million worldwide despite being billed as the first "realiy" movie. Exploitave, disgusting, and idiotic beyond belief, it remains the worst production ever put out by a major studio. I'd say New Line Cinema should be ashamed of themselves, but seeing as they've done their best to bury it, it seems they've learned their lesson. The only reason anyone should check out THE REAL CANCUN is to see what Laura Ramsey was like before becoming a mainstream Hollywood actress. As of this writing, there has yet to be another "reality" movie. 0/10
