Spring Breakers

We have an early contender for Worst Film of 2013. Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers is getting a lot of attention for the Disney-shedding turns by Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgins, along with yet another out-of-left-field performance by James Franco. A lot of critics say the film contains sharp social commentary, but I disagree. All that I see here is an excuse for pure hedonism; bared breasts, drugs and violence abound. It’s mind-numbingly repetitive, which is only made worse by being repetitive about absolutely nothing. I swear, if I’d taken a shot every time James Franco mumbles “Spring break,” paramedics would’ve had to take me out of the theater on a gurney. Come to think of it, that sounds like a better option than sitting through the film.
