Is It Any Good?

Three very talented women wind up humiliating themselves in a movie with too little story, too few laughs. Spring Breakdown follows the enormous success of bawdy comedies in which inept, socially awkward man-boys find joy and solace in each other's company (Superbad, Role Models, I Love You Man). Too bad the film's amateurish production values led it straight to DVD-land. It's a frenzy of skimpy bikinis, racy dialogue, drunken partying, and women trying way too hard to be stupider and more unconscious than they look. Could it be that it's impossible for women to appear that clueless?
