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

Real Bad
7 August 2005 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

It was bound to happen, the TV reality craze bled into the film industry, but did it have to be so bad? Shot in ten days then rushed into theaters a few weeks later it was then rushed into video stores where it destroyed countless more minds, this film has to have the fastest turn around time on record. Hey I've actually said something nice about it...amazing.

The premise is that a bunch of hand picked jerks are flown to Mexico for spring break and we get to watch them behave badly. I'm sure it sounded good on paper but the people we are given to watch are such awful people we don't care. Any promised titillation and truly over the top behavior isn't there so this comes across as rather tame considering the promises the film makers made.

I kept watching this wondering why I was watching it since I hated the people and their behavior. Finally after a just over half an hour of this non-event I turned it off. I suggest that you do better than I did and never turn it on.
