It’s time for some brand new movies again. This is a drama and a comedy movie (tough most won’t find it funny at all because there is nothing funny about it.) Due to the actors (Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine) this movie caused a lot of controversy so I was interested to see what all the fuss was about. We also get to see James Franco looking really unlike himself…
The plot is about four girls who go on their spring break. It all is fun to begin with until things start to get uncomfortable and by uncomfortable I mean jail run-ins and a meeting with a special person who makes the dream spring break into the girl’s worst nightmare.
Judged by the trailer I thought this was going to be pretty Project X like, just another party movie. It was, for the first 25% or something like that. Then the movie get’s a lot more complex and it is not a party movie anymore. I found that to be confusing at first and for the first ten minutes I did not like the new twist at all. Then it keeps improving and the movie turns in to a dark and almost sadistic movie since the characters have put themselves in a situation they are not comfortable with at all.
I found the ending to be amazing and after having finished the movie I was actually pretty happy with the plot. The visuals were also very good, we get to see a lot of vibrant neon colors that I liked since they make the movie a little more special. I’m not really sure about the characters other than I think that they match the plot.
Even though the movie could have been really bad due to the twist, it all turned around for the better, it’s not a revolutionary movie but if you were looking for something outstanding when you were watching it you might have been a tad to positive. So over all it was pretty good and you get a different perspective on the party scene when it takes a turn for the worst. 8 / 10
