Inspired by the reality-tv show The Real World, this babefest boasts unprofessional actors working without a script or director in a completely natural setting. Basically this means that you won’t be watching a movie, just a bunch of people who are like your friends if your friends are really boring and slutty. The assortment of twenty-something boys and girls that were assembled by the production team are sent to a posh resort in Cancun, Mexico for ten days during Spring Break, where they are put in a fishbowl and observed very carefully. Why on Earth would anyone want to sit there and watch strangers going on a vacation? It doesn’t help that although these kids are suspiciously pretty, there isn’t one whit of personality between the lot of them. Maybe voyeurs will get enjoyment out of seeing young Americans behaving like pre-Christian Romans, but the rest of us would rather save our cinema-screen time for real entertainment and rent genuine pornography at home. And, to defend a dead culture, at least pre-Christian Romans believed in hedonism as a religion; these guys just act stupid the minute someone turns a garden hose on their white t-shirts and gives them free tequila.
