Spring Breakers (2012)
Not as impressive as it looked in the trailer
I don't hate this movie, but I don't like it as much as I thought I would. I really like James Franco and his starring in a movie is usually something that will make me give a movie a shot, even if others hated it (Oz the Great & Powerful, for instance). However in this one, I felt his performance was one- note as the goofy, gold-toothed white rapper & drug dealer. Not horrible per se, but just lacking in nuance, which actually might be the fault of the director in the editing room. I've seen Harmony Korine's other movies "Kids" and "Gummo", so those are his only other two movies I can compare it to- IMO it's on the same level as Kids and WAY better than Gummo, both in story composition, scene construction, and performances by the main actresses. The girls all played their characters well, especially Selena Gomez as the appropriately named Faith who just can't reconcile her morals with her friends' concept of "fun". Boobs and butts abound as we go through one wild party scene to another, so if you like seeing jiggling female body parts, you're in for a treat. If not- you might want to find a different movie. 6 out of 10 stars.
