Lies that Spring Break Movies Tell Us

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Skidmore chapter.

Drinking on the beach is legal. Say hello to a citation for drinking in public! Also, 21 and over, people.

Sunblock is for losers. Do you even reapply after going in the water? 

Wearing a bathing suit for the whole day is fun and comfortable. Wearing a wet and cute bikini gives you constant wedgies (and who wants to pick wedgies in front of that cute boy)! Oh, and don’t forget about yeast infections. 

Sharing your hotel room with MANY people is a sensible idea. Sure, you hardly spend time in your hotel room, but packing 15 people in a single room- is it really worth it? 

Spring breakers (the movie) was a good idea. If you can’t afford your spring break vacation, just grab some ski masks, hammers, and water guns! 

The whole concept of wet t-shirt contests. Why would you do this to yourself? 

And even wrestling in food. If you have decided to roll around in jello, you have officially hit rock bottom. 

You will have a perfect golden tan. Because you didn’t put on enough sunblock, you’re burnt and have developed skin cancer.
