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 South 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
Hmmm... well, "Spring Breakdown" is a comedy mostly targeted for a female audience. But it is still somewhat of a movie that can be seen by guys as well. However, don't expect to be laughing hard at any time throughout the course of the entire movie.
What works out mostly for the movie is perhaps the female cast, as they did have nice chemistry on the screen and each one brought something unique to the movie in each their own right. And it was also nice to see Seth Meyers, Will Arnett and Jane Lynch make special appearances in the movie.
The story in "Spring Breakdown" is about three ladies in their thirties who travel to South Padre Island in order to look after a senators daughter, but also to have a chance at partying like they never had a chance to do during their youth.
For a comedy, then I found myself, oddly enough, not really laughing at any point during the movie. That being said, then I am not saying that the movie is bad or boring, the humor just wasn't in my liking. The movie is still entertaining enough for what it was.
Unfortunately then "Spring Breakdown" is a very generic comedy that doesn't bring anything new or overly interesting to the comedy genre.
