Storyline

After a nationwide casting search including college campuses across the country--Arizona State University, University of Oklahoma, University of Vermont, University of Wisconsin at Madison, University of Georgia, Texas Tech, Boston University and Washington State University--the filmmakers cast a unique collection of real people ready to explore reality's barriers beyond the limits of television, while on the ultimate Spring Break vacation, with surprising results. Designed to be the first true reality feature film, six camera crews followed the cast--made up of 16 American college students--and filmed their exploits as they immersed and indulged in the Spring Break revelry of Cancun, Mexico. Filmed 24 hours a day over the course of a week in March 2003, the movie was shot on location and reveals the students' exploits through interviews and planned group activities, as well as through their own spontaneous adventures. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Quotes

Alan Taylor: People used to ask me before, like, you know, "Wow, so have you ever been in love?" because I'm the kind of guy that would love someone. And I'd have to say no, because I've never had that opportunity.

This movie doesn't know what it wants to be.
13 October 2008 | by BeDrinkableSee all my reviews

At first glance, this looks like a "Girls Gone Wild: the Movie" type of movie. Which would be fine; those videos may be morally bankrupt, but at least they don't misrepresent themselves. This, on the other hand ... ugh.

Firstly, you get more titillation from a "Girls Gone Wild" commercial than you do from this entire film. This film is actually done in the style of a documentary, following several young folks on spring break, wandering around Cancun, trying to get laid and drinking a lot. The problem is that the people are not interesting, and nothing they do matters. However they manage, the filmmakers make Cancun seem boring. So, that combined with the exploitative nature of spring break ... if I could give this negative stars, I would.

Oh, and you can't spoil a movie with no plot. Except maybe to say so-and-so hooked up with what's-her-name. But who cares?
