Harmony Korine is an evil genius.
"I got SHORTS. Every f***** color"
I also give this movie the award for best use of Britney Spears' "Everytime"!
I didn't know what to expect from this movie other than the fact people kept saying it's raunchy, wild, and an all-out neon explosion. They were right. I, for one, was really excited when it premiered at TIFF. I even have pictures of the four girls, with me. It was a delight. The movie, I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved it. The whole "finding yourself" thing was brought up and made sense yet you know these girls won't be able to do that since they're on a crime spree. They have good intentions though: TO HAVE FUN!
James Franco really outdid himself, he was hilariously brilliant. Selena Gomez, who I thought was gonna be wilder, really showed off some acting chops there. Vanessa Hudgens was class A, her role was terrific and how vulnerable it was, just plain amazing. The other 2 girls, Ashley Benson & Rachel Korine, I felt they were fillers. But they did what they had to do, and overall it was really a great, non-traditional, f***** amazing movie.
