Spring Break is a 1983 American comedy film directed by Sean S. Cunningham and starring David Knell and Perry Lang. The tagline for the film was: Like it's really, totally, the most fun a couple of bodies can have. You know?.
Two nerds, Nelson and Adam, book a room at an inexpensive hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a great time on spring break, where they meet Stu and O.T. from Brooklyn, New York, also there to have fun. The hotel has overbooked the room so Nelson, Adam, Stu, and O.T. agree to share the room due to the shortage of hotel rooms. The wet t-shirts contests, beer drinking, and other illicit activities associated with Spring Break are all on display here. Nelson's step-dad shows up and causes trouble for the group; he is paired with a building inspector who threatens to shut down the hotel (and the fun).
