SPRING BREAKERS is a US crime drama in which four female college students commit an armed robbery in order to fund their spring break in Florida. They then meet a violent robber and drug dealer and three of the girls join him in his criminal enterprises.

Drugs

The film includes frequent and uncritical portrayals of drug use. Young and attractive men and women are seen to smoke cannabis from joints or bongs and to snort cocaine.

Sex

In the one sex scene of note a naked woman gently rides a man as he lies on his back on a bed. A second woman sucks the man's toes.

Nudity

There are several scenes of sexualised female breast nudity, mostly as young women party on the beach.

Violence

Strong violence occurs during a shoot-out in which several people are killed with automatic weapons. In an aftermath, the camera pans across several dead bodies. Pools of blood have begun to form on the ground, blood trickles from a dead man's mouth and bullet holes are seen in the heads of two other corpses.

Language

There is strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k') throughout, alongside milder terms like 'bitch' and 'dick'.
