The Bottom Line
Should you see it?
Behind a shallow facade, Korine's film is a sweaty mess of sex, guns, and hyperbolic machismo. It's huge fun.
The marriage of Dogma 95 disciple Harmony Korine, the shallow idiocy of Spring Break, and three squeaky-clean young actresses is so weird it's easy to dismiss Spring Breakers as a thoughtless way to simply get chicks in bikinis and asses in theater seats. That kind of thinking, however, gives little credit to Korine, a...Read Full Story
