When a quartet of Kentucky-based college students (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine) have failed to secure the funds necessary for the spring break trip of a young twenty-something’s dreams, they hatch the unsavory plan to rob a diner. And they do. Next stop: St. Petersburg, Florida where they manage to hit the party scene hard before their good times are cut short by the police. The girls spend some time in jail before they are surprisingly bailed out by an aspiring rap artist called Alien (James Franco). That’s when the girls’ spring break takes a serious turn for the insane.
Holiday In The Sun
Did any movie have us begging our parents for a trip to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas more than this installment in the Mary-Kate and Ashley’s movie series? After getting over the disappointment of not being whisked away to Hawaii for break, twins, Madison (Mary-Kate) and Alex (Ashley) are excited to touch down in the Bahamas for, what else, a holiday in the sun. Alex quickly develops a crush on Jordan, a worker at the resort, while Madison falls for hottie Scott. The fun is interrupted when a man smuggling stolen artifacts comes into the picture. Jordan is caught in the middle and wrongfully arrested and the twins must work together to clear his name.
