No Scripts. No Actors. No Rules. Anything can happen on Spring Break-and it did! From the producers of "The Real World" comes The Real Cancun. Wild, hot and provocative, you've never seen a vacation like this before! Sixteen college students embark to Cancun, Mexico for a week and cameras caught their every move-clothed and unclothed.
Compress a season's worth of MTV's The Real World into 90 minutes, marry it to a Girls Gone Wild video, and basically you've got The Real Cancun, an ambitious if unwieldy effort to extract a feature film from bawdy footage of a spring break spent in sunny Mexico. Created by The Real World's production team, Cancun tosses 16 attractive college kids into an unrestrained, endless party in paradise, where the waves are majestic, the booze flows freely, and wanton sex-despite free-form nudity and ample opportunity--proves a surprisingly elusive dream. The trouble here is that a lot of spaghetti was thrown at the wall, but none of it sticks: There are too many people, not enough time to develop compelling individual stories or relationship cycles, and an unwillingness among most of the cast to make a leap from relaxed licentiousness to uncensored lust. In other words, there's no payoff anywhere. --Tom Keogh

It's the "everyone else" that makes the movie so bad. There's one guy in a headband who somehow splits into TWO guys with a headband. At some point, I realized that two of the principal partiers looked almost exactly the same. Then, for some reason, a woman gets very angry at a guy because another woman is sitting on his lap. The filmmakers decided that this moment has a lot drama, so they show it over and over. One of the worst moments involves a black guy who spends the entire movie begging a woman for sex. For some reason, the filmmakers think this kind of thing is entertaining. But it isn't. The whole movie is an annoying mess.
The Real Cancun is brought to us by the good folks who gave us MTV's The Real World. In this movie, MTV takes 16 college aged students on a spring break to Cancun. They are put up in a house and they are filmed for the length of their stay. This film has been rated R for "strong sexuality/nudity, language and partying." This is a reality film in the vein of The Real World. We get to see 16 real college students partying on spring break. We expect that we'll see more sex, nudity, and cursing than we get on The Real World. There is more of each, but the movie (such as it is) fails where The Real World succeeds.
Part of the tagline for this movie reads "Anything can happen on Spring Break-and it did!" Perhaps anything did happen, but the problem is that this "anything" was boring. Watching The Real World, we get to find out who these people are and we can begin to be interested in what happens to the kids on The Real World. I understand that The Real Cancun is only an hour and a half for the entire film (rather than multiple hour long episodes), but it suffers from not allowing the viewer to identify with any of the kids on Spring Break. Actually, the movie suffers from a lot more than just that, but the lack of identification was a biggie. Since I had no idea who more than half of the kids were, I didn't care what happened to them. By the end, I was able to recognize a small handful of them, but I just didn't care.
Something else that was done well on the Real World was that every episode had a storyline running through it, and with editing, we were brought along that storyline. There was nothing in The Real Cancun. It was a collection of scenes featuring the same people, but nothing more than that.Read more ›
It is absolutely sickening and appalling that they actually promote such idiotic behavior in such popular media these days.
This is a plotless piece of garbage is just a horrible idiotic filmshots of a bunch of repulsive college students who go to Cancun and go on major alcoholic binge-drinking to an absolutely sickening degree. What makes it so cool to get drunk? Maybe I sound a little too overreactive to this crap but I lost a friend in an alcohol-related accident years back so I have grief at the sad state of the entertainment industry, promoting this awful behavior in these movies.
I can enjoy a great vacation to Cancun.......without resorting to any alcoholic drinking sprees.
The so-called 'hot chicks' as many proclaim, are not attractive at all. In fact, they are repulsive. Even the guys are absolutely repulsive to look at.
Drinking, and sex make a terrible and even fatal combination. Alcohol does not increase your sexual desire, nor improve your sex lives. It instead will suppress your sexual desires and ultimately ruin a lot more than just a good and healthy sex life.
I'm a college student, in the same age area as the cast of "The Real Cancun" but I am absolutely offended and saddened at the pathetic state that the entertainment industry has sunk to.
Then again, I shouldn't be so upset as they got what they deserved with this movie failing miserably at the box office. Perhaps it's a sign that our society, while still seamingly a mudhole of idiocity in many places, is beginning to wake up and realize that such immature, disgusting, vile, and absolutely insulting reality show garbage like this is destined to be tossed into the caverns of shame.Read more ›
