We had such high hopes for Spring Breakdown — the world needs, Team Gerdes thinks, female versions of the dumb-but-smart, character-based buddy movies that have been, thankfully, so prevalent lately (your Superbad, your Forgetting Sarah Marshall, etc). Rachel Dratch wrote this movie and we've been big fans of Rachel since her Second City days. Sadly, this movie is not the one we've been waiting for. Even more sadly, it's not just a case of thwarted expectations -- it's not even a very good movie. The characters in the movie are all broad caricatures and then even those are sacrificed to jokes in scenes.
