After the vice-president's resignation over a scandal, senator 'Kay Bee' Hartmann is first in line to succeed him. The only likely skeleton in her closet is teenage daughter Ashley, on spring-break with her sorority in Texas's wild-reputed San Padre Island, trying to act cool in a desperate attempt to win back studly boyfriend William, who dumped her for a popular party animal. So the senator sends nerdy junior assistant Becky St. Germaine as chaperon. Becky takes along her former college friends, all refused by sororities and meeting for an annual joint holiday. For once it won't be tame but frightfully exciting, making up for their wasted wild years, joining the party scene with their libertine motel host and the Seven, a group of popular airheads who adopt the dog coach from the adult bunch as dance coach. One 'old' girl even attempts to seduce the hottest frat boy, gentleman Todd, which seems to work. Written by
Spring Breakdown stars Amy Poehler, Parker Posey and Rachel Dratch as three thirty-something losers. They are 15 years out of college and now they are going on a spring break vacation.
The high school or college losers are very common characters, it was a pleasure to see the older version of the cliché characters.
The movie is riddled with clichés, you will know what is going to happen next, but I still found myself laughing along with it. There are a lot of great actors in this movie and they all embody their different characters perfectly.
The movie is short and spends just the right amount of time necessary to give us the background information needed on each of the characters. The movie does not take itself seriously so it works very well for a quick, funny comedy.
