Storyline

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. A serendipitous encounter with rapper "Alien" promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget. Written by Muse Productions

To secure a "Not under 16" rating, the German distributor added some text panels to the end of the film. These panels tell the viewer that the girls were arrested, basically changing the moral outcome of the film. The DVD was released without the panels and with a "Not under 18" rating. See more »

User Reviews

 
Trashy, tacky, unbelievable, but fun.
29 July 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Spring Breakers is one of those films, you keep wanting to switch off, but have to get to end, it's not exactly a good film, but the story is such that you have to know what comes next.

It's so outrageously over the top, that it pretty much belongs in the fantasy genre, however there are a few concepts which are sadly all too realistic.

James Franco is good, but is like a parrot with gold teeth, he repeats many lines over and over. Selina Gomez does a fair job.

Nonsense, but watchable, the ending is at least bold. 6/10
