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

The End of the World as We Know it
30 April 2003 | by (Yongin, South Korea) – See all my reviews

The very existence of this movie, the very idea that this has a major theater release, has me waving a razor over my wrist. The only people who would like this piece of trash are the same variety of vacuous young people that make The Real WOrld popular and listen to ass-bumping, mindless techno and the shallow end of hip hop and give my generation a bad name. good movies like Donnie Darko and Igby Goes Down are met with limited or no theater exposure, and this trash gets the big time treatment? Thank God, thank a God I don't even believe in, that this thing bombed in its opening weekend. THe success of this thing would be a pandora's box that would kill the film industry the same way its killed TV. Film, like painting, sculpture, music and writing, is an art form. The sad thing is that a huge number of people would just as soon see miles and miles of tits and ass over a real plot, good acting, and a keep directorial eye. screw this movie and everyone involved.
