SEE BOTTOM FOR UPDATES:
I put the kids to bed, turned on Lifetime and put a bag of Bon Bons in the bedroom to occupy my wife and then I watched ‘Bikini Spring Break’. I was going to close the drapes so the neighbors didn’t think I was a perv, but nah, I don’t think my reputation with them can get any worse.
Right off the bat I have a complaint about the movie. I like to see the opening credits and who worked on the film. However I couldn’t because it opens with a locker room scene that was very distracting while the credits popped up amongst other….forget it. The next moment was classic. The girls are given a camera that’s a live feed to the stadium’s jumbotron. The camera is “accidentally” turned on and the fans are treated to some topless girls while the fans cheer and chant.
Oh yeah the story. “A group of coeds from a small conservative college break out of their shells when their marching band bus breaks down in Ft. Lauderdale during Spring Break.”
Writer director Jared Cohn http://wp.me/p2eH5w-5X knows how to keep us laughing and entertained. When a few minutes go by without nudity he doesn’t just throw it in, he works it in so the nudity is necessary to keep the story moving forward…that’s a talent very few possess. For example; when Franny ‘Jamie Noel’ has heat stroke the mechanic fixing the bus knows she needs to get out of the sun so he carries her into a gentleman’s club. Brilliant, it’s the perfect place to cool down I think!!! Unfortunately the girls are thrown out after a body shot incident along with two guys they met and I love how the owner chases them out with a sledge hammer. The girls keep bumping into those guys throughout the film and the guys are rather hilarious and likeable.
Okay to keep this review simple there’s a ton of comedy from actions and dialogue and there’s an abundance of “trees and animals.”
Lastly, the ending was ideal. The girls suck as a marching band, but they still win Nationals and I won’t tell you how and it doesn’t matter how, but they win!
On my blog I’ve seen a lot searches for slow motion girls and so forth that brought people here.
The following list of slow motion is for you:
- Locker room
- Bikini car wash
- Gentleman’s club
- Jello wrestling
- Garden hose shower
- Wet t-shirt contest
- Mechanical bull riding
You’re welcome! I could easy write a novel with things I liked about the film and if you want more details don’t hesitate to ask.\
UPDATE REGARDING VANCE:
What about Vance? What I liked about him was that he was goofy and a partier but not too over the top. When we first meet him at the gas station he was crude to Zoe, but in a funny way and not an all-out I want to nail you a-hole way. Sure he made it obvious he wanted her, but he didn’t come across as a clubbing meathead douchebag. He’s the type of guy that I can see joking in the bar and making everyone laugh. No matter how crude and obnoxious he got, you can tell he had a heart, awww I know I know cheesy, but we all have those friends that are funny annoying and jagoff annoying, Vance was funny annoying so people can relate to him. Plus he had some priceless facial expressions that were subtle and you may have to rewind to see again. The expressions included but are not limited to: WTF, oh yeah baby, party hard, nice arse, breasts, legs, eyes, hair, fingers, arms, ears, okay he wanted every part of the girls. I look for those things in movies and I annoy people watching a comedy with me. I’m constantly watching the background looking for expressions and actions. I think growing up on Cheech and Chong tapes made me this way. Finally, the sidekick role is most important to keep us entertained and too many times that role fails, but Vance did a great job.
