The girls play best friends and bored college roommates who are itching for some excitement. They decide to rob a restaurant to fund a Spring Break trip to Florida. The film is non-stop partying and wall-to-wall bikinis until the girls get arrested.
Franco’s character, a drug dealer known as “Alien,” bails them out after they promise to help him with one of his capers.
The film was previewed at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival last May and screen at the 69th Venice International Film Festival last September. It hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles March 22, with a nationwide release on March 29.
