4 main female characters. The first good chunk of the movie is the 4 of them brainstorming ways to get money for a spring break vacation, then shortly after deciding to commit and planning a robbery.
This movie is completely female driven/female dominant. Even in the scenes where the male is perceived to have the power, the women are really using the man to get what they want throughout the entire movie.
Unfortunately, the women who are the main characters in this movie are all quite shallow, vacuous, and willing to slut it up to get what they want.
The movie itself was garbage, but by all measures, it passes the test.

I don't think the movie was garbage. Why can't we have female characters who are greedy, shallow, vacuous, willing to slut it up, or even evil? People like that exist. The movie was about the emptiness of hedonism. In a way, I saw it as kind of a horror movie.
