    one of the most boring films i've EVER seen. 0\5

    Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    In Spring Breakers [Mr. Korine] bores into a contested, deeply American topic — the pursuit of happiness taken to nihilistic extremes — but 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.

  • Scott Foundas

    Spring Breakers seems to be holding a funhouse mirror up to the face of youth-driven pop culture, leaving us uncertain whether to laugh, recoil in horror, or marvel at its strange beauty. All I knew is I couldn't wait to see it a second time.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Atmospherically, Spring Breakers is an elegant evocation of noir storytelling, littered with misdeeds with girls and guns at every turn.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    Harmony Korine's first ''mainstream'' movie, Spring Breakers, is by far the best thing he's ever done.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Korine wants to give us a portrait of our nation’s children — the girls, especially — as beautifully depraved sharks, pleasure-seeking killers oblivious to the comedy and horror of their existence. And damned if he doesn’t pull it off, or come close enough.

  • Richard Roeper

    A candy-colored fever dream is the most unforgettable movie of the year so far.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Tampa Bay wears fringe nihilism well, including wet-fever dreams of trigger-happy angels floating on cannabis clouds and dusted with cocaine like beignets waiting to be licked clean. Or drug gangstas sporting cornrows and gold-grill teeth, living large and thinking three-ways. Film as a fetish tool, that's what Spring Breakers is all about, y'all.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Simon Crook

    A lurid, luminous teen-bender movie, as ludicrous as it is stylish, and Harmony Korine’s best film in years.

    Empire Full Review
  • Rosie Fletcher

    Brave, brash and exhilarating, but lacking the insight and impact of the Korine-scripted "Kids" (1995). Too much fun for social commentary, this is what you wish school was like.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Spring Breakers is either an inspired satire of the youth movie or the most irresponsible comedy mainstream Hollywood will never make. The bros in your crowd will call it rad — and radical it is.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Xan Brooks

    Full credit to Korine, who sustains this act of creative vandalism right through to the finish. Spring Breakers unfolds as a fever dream of teenage kicks, a high-concept heist movie with mescal in the fuel tank.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Spring Breakers is Korine’s most cogent take yet on society’s outsiders.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Whether the film is uniquely brilliant or dismissively dumb is not the issue here. Either choice can (and will) be offered – it’s the choosing that counts.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The movie is wild, but not in the ways that you expect, and it’s also surprisingly chaste — you think you see a lot more than you actually do.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The female actors, particularly Hudgens and Ashley Benson, are game for the ride. And Franco is indispensable, bringing humor and pathos to one of the more repulsive cinematic creations in recent memory.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    With a greater emphasis on sex than violence, Spring Breakers is a more enjoyable guilty pleasure than “Natural Born Killers” and just as acute about our cultural devolution. For all its seeming stupidity, its masterstroke is making us complicit in the corruption of its young stars (who include the director’s own wife).

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's a pleasure, so soon after seeing Franco's recent bewildered performance in "Oz the Great and Powerful," to watch him tackle this menacing yet beguiling character.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The equation of "drugs+booze+sex=happy ending" applies. Then along comes Harmony Korine with Spring Breakers and subverts an entire genre.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Starts out like a salacious, rump-centric and blithely bare-breasted hip-hop video and ends up in the realm of scary and inspired trash. That's not meant negatively.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • One of the effects of Harmony Korine's feverish, hypnotic style is that the whole thing feels like a fantasy—or rather a nightmare perversion of the American dream.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    Midnight movie programmers of the future will undoubtedly give it a long life years after it’s gone from first-run theaters.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    What stays with you is Franco, one of the more enigmatic actors around, going way over the top yet grounding his performance in … something. Whatever it is, it’s more interesting than all the wet T-shirt contests in the world, and it makes Spring Breakers worth watching.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    The movie is an arty lark of ambiguous entertainment value, pulsing with melancholy. It's rarely less than interesting visually or tonally, thanks in large part to Korine's prurient sense of humor and the rich location textures and Crayola sweep provided by gifted cinematographer Benoit Debie ("Enter the Void").

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    It’s shallow, it’s boring, it’s poignant, it’s clever, it’s poorly acted, it’s intentionally poorly acted, it has no story, it has marvelous scenes, it is artful, it is hallucinatory, it is shoddily put together. All response is valid. Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Spring Break – it’s every bit as much fun as you think it is. Until it isn’t.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    As Alien, a gun-crazy Florida drug dealer with tats, beaded cornrows and a grill any rapper would envy, Franco is a bug-f--k blast. Too bad the movie itself is rarely as outrageous as he is.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Although parts of Spring Breakers are very funny, there's also something tsk-tsking and superior about it, as if Korine had thought a lot about young middle America's idea of midsemester fun and decided he doesn't like it one tiny bit.

    NPR Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    So often not in his element — his turn in “Oz the Great and Powerful” is evidence of that — Franco is in freako mode here, and walks a line between spaced-out caricature and just plain Out There.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The overall effect is enervating, like a party that grinds on after most of the attendees have either left or passed out. And much like "Kids," the enfant terrible’s breakthrough screenplay, Korine’s film has an unintended moral hysteria, like a warning to parents of what their good girls are doing when they aren’t looking. The message: Keep them locked up. In their bikinis, if necessary.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Am I crazy, or are Spring Breakers and "Oz the Great and Powerful" essentially the same movie? James Franco stars in both - a tattooed, gun-totin' gangsta in one, a charlatan magician in the other (you figure out which is which), and, in both, he's encircled by a bevy of Hollywood babes determined either to get witchy on him, or get that other witchy-rhyming word on him.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    With director Harmony Korine's visual overload and somnolent voice-overs — the same sentences are repeated ad nauseum — it manages to be both mind-numbingly dull and off-putting.

    USA Today Full Review
  • David Edelstein

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

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Just about every charge of social negligence leveled at Spring Breakers can be countered with an arch claim of intent, which makes it at once playful and wearying; enjoyment is contingent on how little you're willing to fight it.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Rooney

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Admittedly, I’m far from a fan of Korine’s “Gummo,’’ “Julien Donkey-Boy’’ and the absymal “Trash Humpers.’’ But that he is proud of making intentionally sloppy and tedious movies doesn’t make them any easier to watch. Or all that much fun, for that matter.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Any irregularity in tone becomes a part of the movie’s intentionally rough, imperfect surface — a formal strategy I might find interesting if I could make head or tail of what the movie that’s using it is trying to say.

    Slate Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Fitzgerald’s influence could have crept in there by osmosis, and 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. Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    "Trash Humpers" at least had the artistic courage of its own lunatic convictions, but Spring Breakers is all surface and sham; it’s trash about humpers.

    Time Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    How on earth is it possible for one film to be so tiresome? Spring Breakers isn’t deadly dull despite all the nudity and violence, but because of it.
