Storyline

Stu & O.T. are two studs from the big city who arrive in Fort Lauderdale for spring break. They discover that the room they had reserved in an over crowded motel is already being occupied by Nelson & Adam, a pair of college nerds. With no other accomodations available, Nelson & Adam reluctantly agree to share the room with Stu & O.T., who promise to show them a good time. The wet-T-shirt contests and beer-guzzling-fun are threatened when Nelson's controlling step-dad shows up, along with a building inspector who wants to shut down the motel.

Trivia

Producer-director Sean S. Cunningham's conception of Spring Break (1983) dates back to his own student days at Stanford University when he vacationed on the Strip in Fort Lauderdale in Florida, USA. Remembering his own experiences, Cunningham wanted to capture that "once-in-a-student's-life time" fun with a movie about the day's coeds and collegians in an authentic setting. See more »

Goofs

The belly flop from the palm tree was from directly above the pool, and he just dropped spread-eagled straight down. The next shot shows him hitting the water but clearly from a trajectory that originated from the side of the pool, and not 20 feet up in a palm tree. See more »

4 July 1999 | by Mr.NicoSee all my reviews

This movie as well as other similar movies represented a period known as the 80's. This movie was successful for everything it set out to be. Teenagers who went to see this movie got what they paid for. They wanted to see T & A. They didn't care about story line. Which was, geeks team up with macho guys to score in Ft. Lauderdale, was not that bad of a plot. I saw it in the movies and each time it was on cable. I give it a 7.5 out of 10 and the thumbs up for paving the way for other movies which came out during the 80's which taught us teenagers about sex(a little anyway).
