Spring Breakers Review

What's Good:
Spring Breakers is super-sexy, funny at times and extreme on the 'R' scale.
What's Bad:
Repeated scenes, dialogues and no substantial plot.
Verdict:
It could be either a shock or entertaining. Shock to luvy-duvy gomez fans, and entertaining to 2013 youth.
Watch or Not:
Definitely watch it for some kick-ass entertainment! (Only if you can handle extreme 'R' stuff)

Spring Breakers strikes me as another of Korine's calculated punk outrages, a sploog in Disney's direction.

Korine's latest is a characteristically serious film about inherently ridiculous characters, but it's too montonous to be really thoughtful or funny.
Critic Score: 2.5/4

Chicago Sun-Times

Basically a "Girls Gone Wild'' short artily padded out to feature-length by endlessly repeating the same scenes and lines of dialogue, often three or more times.
Critic Score: 1.5/4

"Spring Breakers" is so over-the-top, so-overdone, so extreme, it'd turn even a hedonist off sex.
Critic Score: 1/4

Spring Breakers is an exploitative display of bacchanalian excess, casual sex and rampant nudity that's more tedious than titillating.
Critic Score: 2/4

The movie is an arty lark of ambiguous entertainment value, pulsing with melancholy.

Los Angeles Times

[Korine] turns his exploration into such a gonzo, outrageously funny party that it takes a while to appreciate that this is more of a horror film than a comedy.
Critic Score: 5/5

Spring Breakers, beach-party fluff done as an art film by the reliably bizarre Harmony Korine, is a return to form for Franco.
Critic Score: 2.5/4

Korine manages to make much of the film into a "Natural Born Killers"-style pop patchwork with a videogame-influenced lack of morality.
Critic Score: 3/5

We're all screwed, Korine seems to be saying. It's very sad - but also kinda sexy.

Whatever other charges you want to level against "Spring Breakers" - such as incoherence, plotlessness, salaciousness and mind-numbing monotony - it has no lack of high concept.

All I knew is I couldn't wait to see it a second time.

It has hypnotic visual style and a dense, driving soundscape. But it's also too monotonous and thematically empty to be seriously provocative.

Hollywood Reporter

Attractively fizzy pic may be a shock to the system for fans of teen queens Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, but remains pretty toothless titillation by its writer-helmer's standards.

It would be easy to dismiss 'Spring Breakers.' Lord I'd like to.

Spring Breakers is all surface and sham; it's trash about humpers.
