Long Story Short: Four suburban college girls (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine) who are planning on going on their spring break vacation of their life. But not all of them enjoy this trip full drugs, sex and alcohol. And when they get involved with a drug dealer named Alien (James Franco) everything changes.
My Thoughts: This was the biggest let down of the year. The trailer made it look like the audience can expect a fun, fresh, provocative portrayal of the new generation, but it is definitely not! The movie is so stupid and senseless, I didn’t care the tiniest bit for the four girls, and if it was up to me, they all should have died or gone to jail for being so dumb, which would be at least some kind of decent ending. Wow, we see Jennifer Hudgens as a bad girl… wooohoooo. I couldn’t care less. The characters had no depth, development, nor had they been appealing in any way. Selena Gomez was probably the only one who delivered an okay performance, because she stuck with the innocent Disney – character, but the other three just seemed ridiculous. And what was up with James Franco as Alien? How would he even consider playing such an annoying role?
This movie comes from the man who wrote the script for Kids which has been an eye-opening and very thought- provoking movie, but this movie is total bull$#!t and I think a ten year old could have written a better script.
Thought- provoking? No, but provoking my last nerves!
Fresh? Of course not!
Fun? More of a hell ride… and not in a good way!
I admire the commercial success this movie had, but if you don’t want to waste your time, I would suggest to watch something else.
