We don’t always watch movies and TV for realism. In fact, some of the best films are those that allow you to escape to a totally un realistic situation. Like, spring break in Mexico, except you have a lot of money. Or, perhaps a scenario in which your parents have decided to take you on a tropical vacation to the Bahamas. Or even that you’d go anywhere but your couch for spring break at all.

Spring break shows are especially guilty of getting our hopes up. While the cast of Beverly Hills, 90210  is in a swanky hotel in Cabo, you and your friends are likely shacking up in a double bed at the Motel 6 in Orlando. Ahead, 12 major lies spring break movies and TV shows told us.
