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 for a few bucks to rent this funny film, it will make you grin like a Cheshire cat
Becky (Parker Posey) works as a sub-underling for a powerful senator (Jane Lynch). Her closest friends from high school, Gayle (Amy Poehler) and Judi (Rachel Dratch) also live nearby and they often take vacations together. One day, Gayle, a dog trainer, gets rejected by a handsome blind man (Poehler's real life hubby, Will Arnett) and Judi comes home to find her fiancé in a clinch with another man. These two are so ready for the coming vacay. But, Becky's plans change and, consequently, so does the other gals' destinations. The senator, a possible vice presidential candidate, has a daughter, Ashley (Amber Tamblyn) on a college spring break and she asks Becky to go keep an eye on her child at South Padre Island. Actually, all of the older women are fairly excited, for when they were at the university, they got rejected by sororities and never went on a spring vacation. When they arrive, the trio of ladies are greeted by a hotel clerk (Missy Pyle), who brags she is experiencing HER 18th spring break. Now, this hotel worker is going to ensure that Becky, Gayle, and Judi "party hearty", too! Along the way, the gals meet handsome younger men, witness salsa-tub wrestling, and decide to put on a singing act for the island's talent show. Will this be a memorable spring break or a breakdown, for Ashley is still under observation, after all. Well? This is really a cute story, which Dratch helped write. All of the three principals do a great job as the trusted friends, with Posey the biggest surprise, for her role is sweet and naive, not her usual sassy type. The rest of the cast is also great, with special praise for Lynch and Pyle, they are utterly hysterical. The scenery, naturally, is beautiful, making one want to hop on a plane to SPI NOW. All of the other film attributes, such as costumes, script, camera work, and direction, are worthy, too. If you like romantic comedy or any of the cast members, seek this film out. Springing a few bucks for a view will be the best decision you made all week.
