Brit, Candy, Cotty, and Faith have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun.

James Franco admits in an interview to Howard Stern shortly after the movie was released that while shooting some scenes in the movie, (specifically one scene at a pool hall) some areas of filming were and quote, "real locations where there were real gangsters around and real bad stuff going on." Franco also admits that Vanessa Hudgens, aka "Candy" specifically was very scared while shooting at this location. (Which is contrary to her character in this movie) See more »
The girls are shown crossing the Sunshine Skyway bridge as they arrive in St. Petersburg. Faith is shown crossing it again when she leaves. The Sunshine Skyway is south of St. Pete, therefore the girls came to town from southern Florida, and Faith would be heading farther south instead of northward to her home. See more »

The rating must be a joke, one of the worst films in years
I rarely write reviews it's been ages since the last one but am writing this to vent out some frustration. To think this film currently has a 6.3 rating and generally favourable reviews elsewhere is really strange. There is booze, sex and drugs but you need something of substance to make even a half decent film, this doesn't even come close.
Acting is poor, girls are largely annoying and there is nothing happening whatsoever, it makes no sense, it just dwells on the over importance of spring break, there is no character development and it's a total waste of time, I was bored. It plods along pointlessly for an hour gets decent for 10 minutes and finishes off with a meaningless ending.
I haven't seen After Earth and yes it may be disappointing but it will never be this bad, it's a shame a film like that would get such bad reviews, I mean at least they have tried something, Spring Breakers doesn't even do that, the plot has more holes than a string vest.
If I was to think about a top 10 worst films list this would most likely be on it, it is definitely one of the worst I have seen in years I would have gave it a 1 but it does have a catchy soundtrack for the younger crowd, some scenes are well shot and James Franco does pretty well for his part which does however start becoming repetitive like everything else due to the poor script. Very overrated not everyone will agree but I'm sure some will, especially if they have seen or watch after this review.
