Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie is too calculated to shock. Korine just wants to be the danger he's warning us about."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Korine's story is a searing indictment of today's hedonistic, nihilistic youth, and his script is loaded with sharp, telling dialogue that exposes the rotten moral cores of its characters."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"Korine's most entertaining film to date."
‑ Jack Giroux, Film School Rejects
"I'm not sure how many glow sticks died in the making of Spring Breakers, but I am sure that it was worth it."
‑ Radheyan Simonpillai, AskMen.com
"Often exploitative and completely gratuitous, it succeeds in also exploring the recklessness of youth..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's campy and comic at times, but Korine also gives the film a downbeat, melancholic edge, with voiceovers, pointed repetition of dialogue and images, and hallucinatory camera work, sound and editing."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"The film stands, overall, as one of the director's richer provocations ..."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"It's Malick-meets-dubstep amid post-"Kids"-skin-and-sin with the costumes of Pussy Riot and a sunset-by-the-sea Britney Spears sing-along by Alien and the girls that is both ridiculous and touching."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"A trippy, florescent whirl of boobs and bongs."
‑ Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly
"Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is rough around the edges, visually pleasing, experimental and a downright bizarre film, but one that's worthy of at least one viewing."
‑ Jeremy Lebens, We Got This Covered
"Neon bright and all raw energy, Spring Breakers is a pulsating paradox of a movie, both a tangerine dream and a cultural reality check, a pop artifact that simultaneously exploits and explores the shallowness of pop artifacts."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Once a year, St. Petersburg is awash with thoughtless, unpleasant people making poor decisions. This spring, Korine is one of them."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"...a thoroughly detestable piece of gutter trash masquerading as some kind of abstract piece of pop art."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"I couldn't get past the feeling that this was basically the director's softcore material masquerading as a feature film"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A ridiculous, repetitive and empty drama."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
