    It is from an actual movie, though.

    Four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work.

    Written and directed by Harmony Korine.

    For those who don't know, Korine wrote Kids (yes, that Kids) and Ken Park and wrote/directed Gummo.

    It also stars James Franco.

    So I watched this movie over the weekend.

    First of all, lets get the important stuff out of the way. All four of the girls looked hot in this movie. There is also plenty of gratuitous t and a shots from many of the other females in at as well. The opening sequence made me want to get up and say, "God Bless the United States of America".

    I think it was safe to say that we already knew that Vanessa Hudgens was a goer based on that pic she sent out of herself a few years back. But I think she removed any doubt of that because of the looks she had on her a face during a couple of the scenes in movie. Rachel Kornie was also working for me.

    Okay now to the movie itself: Its bad. Its basically a 90 minute music video and tone of it is all over the place. The movie couldn't decide if it wanted to be a dark comedy or a drama. It was taking itself way to seriously be the former. While having too many absurd moments to be the latter. Then there are just way to many unrealistic scenes in this movie to take it seriously as a drama and they aren't funny enough to laugh at either.

    The constantly repeating of lines and shots from earlier in film started to get annoying after awhile.

    Going by Spring Breakers, apparently the Tampa-St. Petersburg police department is the most inept law enforcement agency in this country.

    The only "good" part movie wise, was James Franco's performance. He played the wigger part brilliantly. Although at times he sounded like a cross between Justified's Boyd Crowder and Dazed and Confused's David Wooderson.

    I watched this last night, and holy fuck were those girls hot, and were dressed in bikinis for most of the movie. I will rewatch multiple times for the girls alone.

    I liked the movie more than @Stormrider666 , but probably less than @LiddyRules . The situations were entertaining, but the plot seemed fragmented to me. The characters didn't have much development, and most of what development they did show took place via hack, one-sided phone conversations with their parents. If the movie had a different feel, this might not have been an issue... but an integral part of the movie seemed to be how the girls evolved to get to the end of the story, and they just didn't show it well.

    Franco's performance was good, but I had a hard time believing his character had lived as long as he had.

    It was better than I expected, but I didn't expect much.

    The girls completely saved that movie. Especially Vanessa, in my opinion.
    If you don't expect much from the plot, and just see it as a vehicle to show the
    chicks off with, its ok.
    Otherwise, shitty movie. Too fragmented, and pretty much ridiculous.

    I really liked it. I thought it was weird in a good, borderline surrealistic way, which is what I tend to like in movies, especially in a year of relative mediocrity. And I liked how the selling point was the hot Disney princesses in bikinis gone bad, but it wasn't a sexy movie. It was more uncomfortable and sad.

    Just bikinis does nothing for me. Years of hardcore porn too early in life has jaded me. The only time I'd waste time on this is if we got to see Selena's lock-tight vag or at least some of her mexican muff . Can't do it. Now if i'm flipping the channels a year from now and this is on I might check out a couple of minutes.

    I think if you watch the first five minutes, you'll watch the next five, and so on and so on. It's worth it just to see these 19 year old girls dancing around in various stages of undress. And there is good amount of actual nudity also.
