The Real Cancun [Import]
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

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.
The bottom line is simply that this is a bad movie. It wasn't funny when it was intending to be funny, and it didn't have the interest level required of a "reality" show. Even if you take this as a T&A movie, it fails on that point, too. I'd really like to find something positive to say about The Real Cancun, but I just can't think of anything.
The problem with these movies is that it trys to attract high school students into doing these utterly stupid acts... pathetic.
If you want to watch people doing utterly stupid acts and proud of it....then I highly recommend Jackass: The Movie... I give that movie a 5/5 cause it's something that actually admits to being stupid. The Real Cancun...can't come anywhere near close.
Bottomline: Waste of time and money.
I lost many brain cells watching this crap for crap movie. Don't waste your time. If you want the thrills, cut out the middle man and just find some porn.
