Spring Breakdown

Starring three delightful ladies that include Amy Poehler, Parker Posey and Rachel Dratch, Spring Breakdown revolves around three middle-age ladies who are about to get even on another generation.

Although the movie is uber clichéd and is quite bad at times, it's actually an endearing and sometimes belly-laugh experience such as the start of the film, which begins with the three actors doing a hilarious interpretation of Eternal Flame by the Bangles at College.

Unfortunately this goes down badly and from there, we fast-forward to the present as all three have moved on or have they? When one of the trio's daughter is about to go to Spring Break, the three jump on the chance to revisit this experience and from there, the comedy really starts to erupt.

From dancing, get hammered and getting even, Poehler is definitely the standout star of the movie, followed by Posey and then Dratch. Although the comedy starts hard and fast, it unfortunately begins to dwindle near the end of the movie that is where the clichés and predictability comes into play, however it ends how the movie started.

Presented in widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, the quality of Spring Breakdown is quite apt, although nothing fantastic. There are some interesting extras such as commentary by Director Ryan Shiraki and Rachel Dratch, additional scenes and my personal favourite, the Gag Reel which really shows these three actresses having a ball.

In conclusion, Spring Breakdown may not be the most original movie to come out of Hollywood but it does feature some hilarious performances by Poehler and co that is like a piece of chocolate, enjoyable at first and ultimately forgettable by the next day.
