“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese
FADE IN INT. – AMANDA BECKETT’S SUBURBAN HOUSE HALLWAY AMANDA BECKETT, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed All-American type college girl in her late-teens, is standing in the hallway of her parents’ home saying goodbye to her PARENTS as she’s preparing to leave for the airport. With a large traveling bag slung over her shoulder, she hugs her mom and then her dad. AMANDA Bye mom…bye daddy! AMANDA’S MOTHER (worriedly) Bye baby, I’ll miss you! AMANDA Ohh mom, I’ll only be gone for a week. Besides, we hardly see each other since I’ve been in college anyways. AMANDA’S MOTHER I know, but still, you’re traveling all the way down to Mexico. It’s my job to worry. AMANDA’S FATHER Yeah honey, you watch out down there and take care of yourself. AMANDA Dad, I’ll be fine! I’m going to be with Michael and his friend Brendan, not to mention my friend Julie. We’re hanging out as a group for the whole time, we’ll be safe. AMANDA’S FATHER I hope so, I don’t want to regret my decision to let you go down there.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA (laughs) Ohhh dad, like you had a choice in the matter. AMANDA’S FATHER Hey let your old man think that he still has some power in his family. A car horn HONKS off screen. Amanda walks over to the door and sees a convertible drive up to the front of the house with her boyfriend, MICHAEL, driving and her other friends BRENDAN and JULIE, a cute petite brunette, riding in the back. She gives them a big wave upon seeing them pull up. AMANDA I have to go now. AMANDA’S FATHER OK, if you run into any problems, just head to the American consulate. AMANDA Dad, you watch too much Dateline NBC. AMANDA’S FATHER That may be so, and I may be an over protective dad, but I’m just looking out for you. Amanda kisses her dad on the cheek. AMANDA I love you dad. AMANDA’S FATHER Love you too honey. Amanda skips out of the house. EXT. – AMANDA BECKETT’S SUBURBAN HOUSE – DAY Amanda excitedly runs across the yard and into the waiting car.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – MICHAEL’S CONVERTIBLE All four of them are dressed in their beach gear and sunglasses, ready to hit Cancun for Spring Break even though the suburban Chicago area that they live in isn’t that warm yet. The other three friends are laughing and giggling, listening to loud hip hop music, as Amanda enters the car. Once in the car, Amanda leans over and gives her boyfriend, Michael, a tall, good-looking guy in his late teens, a kiss on the lips. After she kisses him, she raises her arms up in excitement. AMANDA Spring Break!!! THE OTHER THREE Spring Break!!! Whooo! Amanda turns the already loud radio up even more. AMANDA Let’s turn the music up! party! It’s time to
MICHAEL Yo guys, this Spring Break is going to be sick! BRENDAN You got that right! I’m hoping for legendary, epic stories! Michael puts his hand up and gets high-fived by Brendan who is sitting behind him. AMANDA Well I’ll try my best to deliver those stories. MICHAEL Hey, don’t try too hard, ok baby? you all to myself. I want
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA Mike, I didn’t mean it like that! I’m just going to have fun and get drunk, that’s all! JULIE I’m so excited! No school for the next week, no worries… BRENDAN (interrupts her) And we’re going to a place where we can legally drink! Everyone cheers to that comment. BRENDAN How awesome is that?!? We don’t have to worry about our fake IDs getting confiscated or underage drinking citations. MICHAEL Cancuuuuunnnnn! Michael drags out the second syllable for an extend period of time. THE OTHER THREE (in unison) Cancuuuuunnnnn! EXT. – SIGHTS OF CANCUN, MEXICO – SUNNY DAY Several scenes of the typical “fun in the sun” sights of Cancun – girls walking down the street in bikinis, groups of beefcake guys drinking outside at bars, people surfing and parasailing on the water and high waves crashing into the shore as girls and guys lay out on the beach. EXT. – A CANCUN BEACH RESORT – DAY A Jeep Wrangler carrying the four friends pulls up to the front of the resort. All of them get out of the car and look around in amazement at the size of the resort and the sights of the palm trees lining the property. AMANDA This place is beautiful.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael walks up to her and gives her a kiss on the cheek. MICHAEL And so are you… Michael grabs Amanda’s hand and leads her to the front entrance of the resort. MICHAEL (cont’d) Come, let’s check-in so that we can hit the beach. INT. – HOTEL ROOM Amanda, Julie and Brendan are unpacking their suitcases on their separate double beds when Michael barges into the room carrying a bottle of tequila and margarita mix with some cups. MICHAEL Margarita time! The others stop unpacking and jump up and down in excitement. AMANDA Woo hoo! MICHAEL Come, take a cup. Everyone grabs a cup and Michael puts the bottles down on the table and starts making margaritas for everyone. MICHAEL Ice, we need ice. BRENDAN I’ll grab some. Brendan picks up a trash can, dumps out the trash and runs out the door to get ice. MICHAEL Let’s do a quick drink here then head down to the beach.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA Sounds good. I bought a new bikini just for the trip. Here, check it out. Amanda goes through her suitcase and takes out her new bikini to show Michael. He walks over to feel it. MICHAEL Wow, that looks nice. I hope you enjoy putting this on now as much as I’ll enjoy taking it off later. Ewww, gross! JULIE Come on guys.
Brendan walks back into the room with a trash can full of ice and puts it down on the table. BRENDAN OK, I got the ice! JULIE Ice in a trash can? Classy! BRENDAN Hey, it’s Mexico! This is probably the cleanest thing we’re going to put into our mouths this week. All four of them huddle around the table and finish making their margaritas. MICHAEL Especially for Julie, assuming she blows you this week Brendan. Julie slaps him in the stomach. AMANDA Nice, really nice. JULIE Talk about class. BRENDAN Asshole. MICHAEL I’m just screwing around.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael makes a toast. MICHAEL (cont’d) OK, put your cups up. Here’s to a kick ass Spring Break in Cancun! All four of them “cheers” and take a sip of their drink. AMANDA Let’s listen to some tunes! Amanda runs over to the stereo on the other side of the room, turns it on and starts playing around with it until she finds a good station playing Latin music. MICHAEL Turn it up Amanda! Once Amanda turns up the stereo, all four of them get into the middle of the room and start dancing together as they drink their margaritas. EXT. – THE BEACH – DAY Julie and Brendan are splashing each other in the water as waves crash all around them. Amanda and Michael are close by laying on the beach. Amanda, who is wearing sunglasses, is laying on her back soaking up the sun. Michael is laying on his stomach, practically sleeping. They’re holding each other’s hand. AMANDA This is the life Mike. MICHAEL (drowsy) It certainly is. AMANDA Let’s move down here. MICHAEL And do what? AMANDA I don’t know, do we have to work?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese
MICHAEL If we want to live, yes. AMANDA OK, well maybe you can become a bartender. MICHAEL I like that, what would you do though? AMANDA (thinking) I don’t know, maybe a be shot girl. MICHAEL (laughs) A shot girl? I was thinking more like a tourist guide, or hotel concierge, for you. Don’t those shot girls have to put test tubes of booze in their cleavage and have sweaty, disgusting men drink them out? I don’t know, I thought I saw that on a Wild On E! show once. AMANDA (thinking) Yeah, maybe a tourist guide is better. Julie and Brendan run up to them and pour a bucket of water on Michael’s back. Startled, Michael flips around and immediately gets up to chase Brendan. MICHAEL Ohhh you’re dead, you’re so dead! Julie sits down next to Amanda where Michael was laying. JULIE Beautiful day isn’t it? Yeah, it is. AMANDA It’s hot though.
JULIE The water’s nice and cool. AMANDA Good idea, I think I’m going to take a (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA (cont’d) dip while the boys horse around like a couple of kids. JULIE They are so immature, aren’t they? AMANDA Yeah, yeah they are. But we love them anyways. JULIE Yes we do. AMANDA OK, I’m going in. JULIE I’ll stay with the blanket. Amanda stands up and slowly walks down to the water’s edge. She sticks her foot into the water, fixes her bikini then jumps right in head first for a swim. LATER ON Michael and Brendan are tossing the football to each other on the beach as Amanda and Julie lay on a blanket close by. MICHAEL Yo, let’s go to the bar, my buzz is wearing off. BRENDAN Yeah, we’ve done enough stressful activity for the day anyways. Michael and Brendan run over to the blanket where the girls are laying on their stomachs. Michael playfully drops the football on Amanda’s ass; she flips over in anger. AMANDA Jerk! MICHAEL Have you girls had enough sun yet? Amanda looks at the time on her cell phone.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA Yeah I think we’re good. We don’t want to end up too burnt on the first day. MICHAEL Good, we’re heading up to the bar over there to get our drink on. JULIE Sounds good, let’s do it. Julie and Amanda stand up and grab the blanket while Michael picks up the football, then they all walk up the beach and over to a beachside bar. EXT. – BEACHSIDE BAR – DAY The four of them walk immediately up to the bar and Michael gets the attention of the blonde bombshell-type BARTENDER. MICHAEL Can I get four beers and a funnel please? AMANDA A funnel? Hell yes! MICHAEL We’re on vacation! BRENDAN Spring Break! MICHAEL, AMANDA, JULIE Spring Break! The bartender comes back carrying four beer cans and a long funnel and gives them to Michael. MICHAEL OK, who’s up first? BRENDAN Lemme show the girls how it’s done. Brendan gets in position by getting low to the ground and putting the hose by his mouth. MICHAEL OK, you ready?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Brendan gives Michael a thumbs up. BRENDAN Yeah. Michael opens the can of beer and pours it into the funnel, he lifts it up and Brendan pounds the beer in seconds. Chug! Chug! MICHAEL Chug!
After he’s done, Brendan takes the hose out of his mouth, shakes his head and gives Mike a high five. BRENDAN Damn that was good! MICHAEL Who’s next? AMANDA I’ll do it. Amanda takes the hose, gets low to the ground and puts it in her mouth. MICHAEL You ready honey? AMANDA Go for it dear! Michael opens another can of beer, pours it into the funnel and lifts it up. Amanda funnels the beer much more slowly than Brendan but she does do it with only minimal spilling. Amanda jumps up in celebration when she’s done and hugs Michael. MICHAEL OK, Julie your turn. JULIE Ohh, I don’t know, I’m not much of a funnel girl.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Come on don’t be a wimp. BRENDAN Honey, don’t embarrass me. Do it.
JULIE (reluctantly) OK, OK, OK, I’ll do it. (pause) I don’t even know what to do. BRENDAN Grab the hose. Brendan grabs the hose and gives it to Julie. BRENDAN (cont’d) And get down on your knees. Julie gets down on her knees and places the hose over her. MICHAEL Yeah, like you’re blowing Brendan. Amanda hits Michael in the stomach. AMANDA Hey, be nice. MICHAEL I’m just trying to help her visualize funneling so that she can do it. Imagine the hose is Brendan’s dick… Michael holds up the can of beer. MICHAEL (cont’d) …and this beer is his sperm. JULIE Ewww, gross. Amanda hits Michael in the stomach again. AMANDA Mike, please stop it!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL (laughs) OK, OK, OK, I’m sorry. Julie puts the hose in her mouth. MICHAEL You ready? JULIE (mumbles) Yeah. Michael opens the beer can and pours it into the funnel, then he lifts it up very slowly. Julie starts drinking the beer very slowly until the hose slips out of her mouth a few seconds later and the beer spills all over her bikini soaking her. The other three laugh at her misfortune, even Amanda. MICHAEL Ha, ha, nice. Amanda walks over to the bar and grabs several cocktail napkins so that Julie can dry herself off. BRENDAN Here, I’ll take care of that. Brendan starts licking Julie’s neck and chest until she pushes him away. JULIE Ewww, gross. BRENDAN You didn’t think that when I was doing that to you last night. JULIE Well, that was different. MICHAEL Ahhh, Julie, you’re funny. You couldn’t even do a funnel! What are you, eight years old?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JULIE OK big mouth, why don’t you do one? MICHAEL I don’t mind if I do. Michael turns to the bartender and gets her attention. MICHAEL Excuse me, can I get two more beers here? The bartender drops off two more beer cans for him. Michael grabs them and puts them next to his other beer. MICHAEL Watch this. You mere mortals looked cute pounding a beer. I’m going to do three. Michael pours all three beers into the funnel, then he lifts it up over his head and quickly pounds the beer in a matter of a few seconds. Once he’s done, Michael throws the funnel down in celebration and high fives Brendan then makes out with Amanda. MICHAEL That’s what I’m talking about! Julie, that’s how you do it! BRENDAN Let’s get more beers. AMANDA And margaritas. All four of them go up to the bar and grab more drinks. They walk over to a corner of the bar that looks out to the water. AMANDA Such a beautiful day, it really is. MICHAEL You know what would make this day even more beautiful? See
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA No, what? MICHAEL Recreational drugs. BRENDAN Like what? MICHAEL I don’t know, weed, coke, crystal meth. Whatever man, I just want to get fucked up. BRENDAN Well, we’re in the right country to do that. JULIE How are we going to score some drugs? MICHAEL It’s fucking Mexico! It shouldn’t be too hard to find drugs here. (looks at Brendan) Brendan for your sake I hope Julie gives good head, because there’s not much up there in the brain department. Julie takes a sip of her margarita through her straw then spits it in Michael’s face. JULIE Screw you Mike. And what is your fascination with blow jobs anyway? This is like your third reference to it today. What can I say? Amanda? MICHAEL I love head. Right
AMANDA Keep me out of this. MICHAEL Anyways, I figure we can buy some drugs off some street corner around here. It should be as easy as that.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Brendan eyes two shady looking Mexican guys sitting over at the bar. BRENDAN What about those guys over there? They look shady, they might have some drugs to sell. Amanda, Julie and Michael look over to the bar. AMANDA Brendan, you are such a racist. You think just because they’re Mexican, they’re drug dealers? BRENDAN Well, yes. AMANDA So stereotypical. MICHAEL There’s only one way to find out. go over there. Let’s
AMANDA You know what, you guys can figure this out on your own. Just find some dope and tell us later what we owe. Fine. MICHAEL Brendan, you rolling with me? BRENDAN Yeah, I’m going. MICHAEL Let’s go then. Michael and Brendan walk slowly over to the two MEXICANS sitting at the bar quietly drinking beers by themselves. Once they get to them, they spend a couple brief seconds standing there in awkward silence until Michael finally speaks up. MICHAEL (coughs) Hola.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN Donde esta ingles? MICHAEL (whispers) Dude, you just completely butchered that line. BRENDAN (whispers) No I didn’t. MICHAEL (whispers) Yeah, you did. BRENDAN (whispers) I doubt it…don’t forget I took two semesters of Spanish in high school. The Mexicans, not amused at all, just look at the two of them and continue smoking their cigarettes. One of them even intentionally blows smoke into Brendan’s face. MICHAEL (whispers) This is awkward, should we just walk away? BRENDAN (whispers) No, we got this far, we have to go through with it. MICHAEL Habla ingles? Finally one of the Mexicans, JUAN CARLOS, speaks up in a very measured tone. JUAN CARLOS Yes, we speak English. What do you boys want?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN (nervously) Ummmm, we were just ummmm, looking for, ummmm, we were thinking about maybe, ummm, well, you know, ummm. JUAN CARLOS Are you guys OK? Juan Carlos’ friend, PACO, leans over and whispers to him. PACO (whispers) Gringos. JUAN CARLOS (laughs) You got that right. MICHAEL Look, we’re just trying to score some weed. Maybe coke too if we can find it. Do you know where we can find some? Juan Carlos looks Michael and Brendan up and down a few times, sizing them up then he finally speaks again. JUAN CARLOS We can help you out in your predicament. BRENDAN (smiles) Ha, I knew it! MICHAEL (whispers) OK, no need to gloat. Brendan takes out his wallet. BRENDAN Sooo, what can we get, how much is it? Juan Carlos quickly puts his hand on Brendan’s wallet and pushes it back down to his pocket. JUAN CARLOS Whoa, whoa, whoa essa. Not here, too (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS (cont’d) much heat from the police, especially the undercover cops. MICHAEL OK, where then. Juan Carlos points to a general direction outside of the bar. JUAN CARLOS There’s a house two blocks down from here, halfway down that road on the left. Meet us there in a half an hour. There you’ll be able to buy whatever you want, in absolute safety. MICHAEL Sounds good. JUAN CARLOS Paco, give them the address. Paco writes down the address on a cocktail napkin and passes it along to Michael. JUAN CARLOS Make sure you’re there in a half an hour sharp. We don’t like to be kept waiting. Juan Carlos stands up with Paco. JUAN CARLOS Make sure you bring cash too. Juan Carlos and Paco finish their beers and walk away. MICHAEL Those dudes were kind of scary. BRENDAN Yeah, that must mean they’re good drug dealers. I bet they have some grade A shit. MICHAEL I guess that’s one way to look at it.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael and Brendan walk back over to the girls on the other side of the bar. JULIE So what’s going on? AMANDA Did you get anything? MICHAEL We have to meet them at a house down the street in a half an hour then they’ll sell us stuff. JULIE So they were drug dealers? MICHAEL It sounds like it. I mean they haven’t proved that they have any drugs yet, but it sounds promising. BRENDAN Let’s grab another drink then we’ll head over there. JULIE We’ll? BRENDAN Yeah all four of us. It’s on the way back to the hotel so I figured we’d all go there. AMANDA I don’t know, it sounds a little scary, to go to a house down an alley way to score some drugs. BRENDAN Oh come on, I’m sure this happens all the time around here, all the time. It’ll be fine. MICHAEL Besides, we don’t want you girls walking around this city by yourselves. You’re safer with us.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA OK, fine. EXT. – DIRT ROAD – DAY Michael, Brendan, Amanda, and Julie are walking slowly down the middle of a dirt road that’s bordered by small, rundown houses on each side. Scary MEN are staring them down from their front porches at a few of the houses along the road. They’re still dressed in their swimsuits; but the girls are each wearing short skirts and the guys are wearing tshirts. Brendan is carefully studying the cocktail napkin that has the house address on it. MICHAEL Do you know where we’re supposed to be going? BRENDAN I’m not sure. I mean I think we’re on the right street, I just don’t know which house it is. MICHAEL It is kind of tough to see the numbers on these houses. The four come up to a house that has four luxury sports cars parked in front of it. MICHAEL I’m going to bet that this house here is the place we’re looking for. JULIE Why do you think that? MICHAEL Look around, none of these other houses have a car in their driveway worth more than $500. This house has not one, but four nice sports cars in front of it. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. BRENDAN That makes sense.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Brendan, check that cocktail napkin again. The four of them stand in front of the house as Brendan examines his napkin again. He looks up at the front of the house then looks back down at the napkin; he does this a few times before noticing a house number hidden behind a bush. BRENDAN 49. This is it. All four of them stand there for a few seconds in awkward silence until Michael speaks up. MICHAEL OK, let’s do this. BRENDAN Let’s pool our money first so we don’t have to stand in the house and fiddle around with our money in front of the dealers. MICHAEL Good idea. Amanda and Julie reach into their purses and fish out some money. AMANDA I have $80 on it. JULIE I have $60. Brendan and Michael both reach into their pockets and pull out money. BRENDAN I have $150. MICHAEL I got $150 too. Michael collects the money from everyone.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL OK, let me handle this. I’ll do the talking and negotiating too. AMANDA Fine with me. The four of them walk slowly up to the front door, Michael knocks. After a few seconds, a YOUNG MEXICAN, only in his midteens, opens the door. MEXICAN TEENAGER Yo. MICHAEL Hi, we were invited over here from the bar down the street about a half hour ago. The teenager doesn’t say anything further, he just opens the door wide and steps out of the way so that the four of them can walk in. INT. – RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE OFF DIRT ROAD The four enter a dark, mostly vacant house where the only light is provided by the sunlight that manages to peek through the windows which are mostly covered up. They are greeted silently by three MEXICANS in a living room that is nearly empty except for a beaten up couch, a couple chairs, a broken table and a small TV. The three rough-looking young Mexicans in their mid-to-late twenties, standing in the middle of the room looking tough, are a stark contrast to the four pristine young American kids standing by the front door. MICHAEL (innocently) Hi, we’re here to buy some drugs. The young Mexicans continue to stare them down until one of them walks out of the room. The others stare intently at the beautiful Amanda, who is wearing a bikini top and a very short skirt.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Visibly nervous, the American kids stand there silently while they wait. The young Mexican walks back into the room followed by Juan Carlos, whose holding a cigar in his hand. BRENDAN (innocently) Hey, it’s the guy from the bar… Paco also walks into the room so that now the Americans are outnumbered by the Mexicans. BRENDAN And it’s the other guy from the bar, Paco. Juan Carlos walks up to Michael and shakes his hand firmly. JUAN CARLOS I’m Juan Carlos. MICHAEL (nervously) I’m Mike. JUAN CARLOS What can I do for you? MICHAEL We’re looking to party. JUAN CARLOS I know that, what exactly are you looking for? MICHAEL As much blow as $440 can buy. JUAN CARLOS I think we can do that. You got the cash? MICHAEL Yes, yes. (reaches into his pocket and takes out the money) First we have to see the product.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS (menacingly) Oh really? MICHAEL (nervously) Well, if you don’t mind. JUAN CARLOS OK. (turns around to Paco) Paco, go measure it out. (looks back at the Americans) Anyone want to go with him? Paco leaves the room. MICHAEL (looks to his friends) No, we’re fine here. JUAN CARLOS Very trusting of you, don’t worry we won’t screw you. A couple of the young Mexicans continue staring intently at Amanda. She finally notices their eyes going through her and becomes self-conscious so she hides behind Michael. MICHAEL (whispers) Are you OK? AMANDA (whispers) Yeah. JUAN CARLOS So you all down here for spring break? MICHAEL Yeah, we’re in college and came down here to blow off steam. BRENDAN …and party. MICHAEL Hence the coke.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS I hear you, that’s cool. Where are you from? MICHAEL Just right out of Chicago, a suburb around there. Juan Carlos look both Julie and Amanda up and down. JUAN CARLOS You’re women are very beautiful. MICHAEL (nervously) Thanks. Juan Carlos walks right up to Julie and gently rubs his finger down the side of her face. JUAN CARLOS Very beautiful. Julie stands close to Brendan and grabs his hand. Juan Carlos is standing in front of the four while his Mexican friends stand behind him and stare the Americans down. He takes a big puff from his cigar and blows the smoke right in Michael’s face as a sign of intimidation. MICHAEL (coughs) Thank you for that. JUAN CARLOS I’m sorry, did you say something? MICHAEL (nervously) Ummm, no. The tension is incredibly high in the room and continues to grow during the silence. Juan Carlos backs off and walks around the room.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS First time down here? MICHAEL Yeah, first time. JUAN CARLOS Once you get your stuff, how are you going to celebrate? MICHAEL (confused) What? JUAN CARLOS Where are you all partying tonight? MICHAEL Oh, I’m not sure. BRENDAN We were thinking about hitting up Senor Frog’s tonight. I’ve heard it’s awesome. Party Central. JUAN CARLOS Senor Frog’s, good place. Nice vibe. Paco comes back into the room carrying a bag of coke and hands it over to Juan Carlos. JUAN CARLOS Well, here you are. (takes the money out of Mike’s hands) Enjoy the party. MICHAEL Thanks. The four Americans walk over to the front door and Julie opens it. JUAN CARLOS If you need anything else during your stay in Cancun, you just come back, OK? MICHAEL Sure.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese As Amanda walks out the door, she turns back and sees a couple of the Mexicans staring at her again. She quickly leaves. Paco closes the door once all four of the Americans walk out. Juan Carlos walks over to a window and moves the curtain slightly to watch them walk down the street. PACO There walks some fine-looking American bitches. JUAN CARLOS You got that right. PACO So fine. JUAN CARLOS It sounds like they’re going to Senor Frogs tonight. PACO I guess we know what we’re doing tonight then. JUAN CARLOS Yeah, I’d like to get to know those girls a little bit more. PACO We could make some serious money off of them. JUAN CARLOS Yeah, especially that blonde one. EXT. – DIRT ROAD – SUNSET Amanda, Julie, Michael and Brendan are walking up the street away from the drug house. MICHAEL That was a little nerve-racking. A little? AMANDA That’s an understatement.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN Ohhh it was fine. Brendan runs up behind Michael, grabs the bag of coke out of his back pocket and holds it up. BRENDAN (cont’d) And we got party favors now! AMANDA Those guys were scary. MICHAEL (sarcastically) Yeah and thankfully Brendan was nice enough to tell them where we’re going tonight for some reason. BRENDAN Relax, they were fine, they’re harmless little drug dealers. MICHAEL Well I wasn’t comfortable telling them what we were doing tonight, you should’ve just followed my lead. Brendan throws his hands up to dismiss Michael. BRENDAN Whatever. AMANDA Those little Mexican guys were staring at me the whole time. It’s like they were undressing me with their eyes. MICHAEL (laughs) You’re just imagining things babe. Look you’re hot, you’re ridiculously hot, I know that; but you can’t think that every hard up guy is undressing you with their eyes. Seriously. AMANDA I know that Mike, but they made me uncomfortable.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JULIE Amanda’s right, did you not see that creepy Juan Carlos guy rub my face? BRENDAN Oh come on Julie, maybe that’s how they greet people in Mexico. It’s not like we know all the cultural nuisances down here, we’ve only been in Cancun for a few hours. MICHAEL Look, let’s forget about all this. We got our stuff now let’s go and party. AMANDA Fine by me. INT. – HOTEL ROOM Amanda snorts a long line of cocaine off a glass table with a dollar bill. Once done, she immediately sniffs in, looks up to the ceiling and rubs her nose. There’s loud music playing in the background, she, Brendan and Julie are dressed up in their best club clothes and there are several other lines of coke laid out on the table. Brendan taps Amanda on the shoulder to get her to move. BRENDAN OK, OK, OK my turn. Brendan takes the rolled-up dollar bill from Amanda and snorts a line of coke. BRENDAN Arrrgh, this coke is awesome! Michael walks out of the bathroom wearing his best club clothes – an Ed Hardy t-shirt and designer jeans. AMANDA Looking good honey! MICHAEL I’m feeling good babe! Let’s party!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN Have a party favor first. Julie snorts a line of coke then passes the bill over to Michael. MICHAEL I don’t mind if I do. Michael snorts the last line of coke on the glass table. Julie and Brendan are sitting together on one of the beds. BRENDAN Hey Jules, I heard that if you put coke on your dick it makes it go numb, can I do that and you snort it off of me? JULIE (hits him in the stomach) Ewww, you’re so gross sometimes. BRENDAN Thought I’d just ask. Michael grabs a bottle of tequila off the dresser, takes a swig of it then grabs Amanda and starts dancing with her. He puts the bottle up to Amanda’s mouth and makes her drink some of it, then he grinds with her to the music. Brendan and Julie stand up and start dancing in the middle of the room as well. Michael takes out some more coke from his pocket and takes a quick hit then he gives some to Amanda so that she can take a hit. He passes some of it over to Brendan so that both he and Julie can take a hit. Then Michael passes the bottle of tequila over to Julie so she can drink some with Brendan. MICHAEL Should we go hit up the club now? BRENDAN Yeah, let’s do it!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL You good Amanda? AMANDA (throws her arms up in the air) Let’s party! Amanda grabs her purse and digs through it to find her pack of Trident chewing gum. AMANDA First though, anyone want a piece of gum? We don’t want to hit the club without having minty-smelling breath. MICHAEL Yeah, I’ll take a piece. JULIE Me too. BRENDAN And me. Amanda passes out a piece of gum to everyone and the four of them get ready to leave the hotel. MICHAEL (points to the table) Brendan, grab the coke for the club. BRENDAN Ahhh yes, we don’t want to forget the most important thing. Brendan grabs the bag of coke on the way out the door. INT. – SENOR FROG’S The nightclub is packed with young people dancing and grinding on each other to the loud music. It’s a very festive, energetic atmosphere – people are dressed in their best club clothes, some guys are shirtless while some girls are barely clothed. Amanda, Michael, Julie and Brendan are dancing together in the middle of the club.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese A sexy, female bartender grabs a megaphone and jumps onto the bar. SENOR FROG’S BARTENDER (screams) OK all you bitches in here, I’m talking to you guys too, come over here for a free shot of Ass Juice, it’s my own special concoction! The bartender grabs a bottle filled with red liquid off of the bar. SENOR FROG’S BARTENDER (screams) Come here now! Michael grabs Amanda’s hand and drags her over to the bar. The bartender walks over to the end of the bar and starts pouring shots into the mouths of guys and girls standing with their backs to the bar and their heads tilted back. She makes her way along the bar until she gets to Michael. SENOR FROG’S BARTENDER Hey cute stuff! MICHAEL Hey. SENOR FROG’S BARTENDER I’ve got something special for you. The bartender puts a shot in her mouth then leans over until she’s just a few inches away from Michael’s mouth. She spits the shot into his mouth then leans all the way over to make out with him. This lasts for a few moments until Amanda pulls him away from her. AMANDA (angrily) What are you doing? MICHAEL It’s Cancun baby!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael high fives Brendan who is standing behind him. BRENDAN I want in on that! Brendan rushes to the bar and takes Amanda’s place. He quickly turns his back to the bar and tilts his head back to get ready for the shot. The bartender just pours the shot down his throat like any other normal customer. BRENDAN (disappointedly) Hey where’s my kiss girl? SENOR FROG’S BARTENDER Sorry, you’re not as hot as your friend. MICHAEL (laughs) Ohhh, diss! Julie hugs Brendan to comfort him. JULIE Awww, honey I think you’re quite hot. BRENDAN Thanks Julie, come on let’s get back on the dance floor. Brendan grabs Julie’s hand and leads her back onto the dance floor. Meanwhile, Amanda is angrily staring down Michael. AMANDA So are you done making out with other girls mister? MICHAEL Stop, it’s no big deal. Come on, it’s Spring Break Cancun! Stuff like this is bound to happen. AMANDA No big deal, huh?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL No. AMANDA Stuff like this is bound to happen, huh? MICHAEL Sure. AMANDA OK, we’ll see how you like it. Amanda jumps onto the bar and sits on it, then she grabs the megaphone from off the top of the bar. AMANDA (yells) OK all you players and pimps…who wants to take a body shot! MICHAEL What are you doing? Michael is quickly pushed out of the way by a hoard of guys that are rushing to the bar. Amanda reaches behind the bar and grabs a bottle of tequila then she lays down on her back across the bar and pours some tequila in her navel. AMANDA Come and get it boys! A guy immediately leans over and takes the shot off of her body then grabs a lime off of the bar and sucks it. AMANDA Next! This time Amanda sprinkles some salt around her stomach before pouring another shot in her navel, then she grabs a lime and puts it into her mouth. Another guy walks up and licks the salt off of her, then he drinks the shot out of her navel and leans over to suck the lime of her mouth. Amanda grabs the back of his head to keep him down there and makes out with him.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Once done the guy turns around to his buddies and highfives all of them. Juan Carlos is standing with Paco on the other side of the room, far from the bar, watching Amanda. AMANDA Mike, this is so much fun, doesn’t this look fun? Michael has had enough with watching Amanda’s antics and pushes his way through the crowd to get to her. MICHAEL OK, you’ve had your fun, you’ve proved your point, are you happy? Michael picks up Amanda and carries her off the bar as the other guys around him boo, he finally puts her down several feet away. AMANDA Hey baby, why are you being like this? It’s Spring Break Cancun! Stuff like this is bound to happen. OK, I get it. MICHAEL I’m sorry!
AMANDA That’s all I wanted to hear. You’re not going to kiss anymore bartenders, are you? MICHAEL No way, baby. AMANDA Good! MICHAEL Let’s get back on the dance floor, OK? AMANDA Yes, I just want to be with you anyways. Michael grabs Amanda’s hand and leads her back to the dance floor.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Juan Carlos and Paco follow the two with their eyes while keeping a safe distance from them. PACO Those Americans do like to party. JUAN CARLOS Stupid Americans. Paco notices Julie and Brendan dancing in the middle of club and points them out to Juan Carlos. PACO There’s the other two JC. JUAN CARLOS Yep, I see them. PACO What do you want to do? JUAN CARLOS We can’t get too close since they’d recognize us…call the boys in. PACO No problem. Paco takes his cell phone out of his pocket and walks away to get some quiet. Back on the dance floor, Michael and Amanda dance over to Brendan and Julie. All of them are pounding their beers. Brendan pats Michael on the back. BRENDAN This is the life my man! MICHAEL I know, I’m drunk! BRENDAN Me too! JULIE Enough with all this talk. (grabs Brendan’s face) Shut up and kiss me!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN I can’t say no to that. Brendan passionately kisses Julie on the dance floor, he starts groping her and rubbing his hands up and down her body. He also grabs her breasts and ass during their makeout session. MICHAEL Oh god, get a room you two! BRENDAN We might have to in a few more minutes! As Brendan and Julie stop making out, Amanda dances over to Julie and grabs her around the waist. They start drunkenly dancing together and Amanda starts making out with her. Brendan and Michael are both in shock. playfully hitting Michael on the back. Brendan starts
BRENDAN Oh my god, oh my god, this is amazing! Our girlfriends are making out with each other! MICHAEL I don’t know what to say, I’m speechless, I’m without speech. BRENDAN This is like my wet dreams come true. MICHAEL I don’t know exactly how I feel about you having wet dreams about my girlfriend, but OK. BRENDAN You know what I mean. MICHAEL Yeah, it’s cool. Brendan and Michael continue to stand there watching the two of them dance with each other and make out. This is great! BRENDAN Look, if they start
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese fingerbanging each other, I’m going to pass out right here. MICHAEL Cancun man. BRENDAN Canfuckingcun. Brendan and Michael high-five each other. MICHAEL Let’s move in. Michael and Brendan both grab their girlfriends from behind and start dancing with them. Julie and Amanda slowly turn from making out with each other to making out with their boyfriends. After they’re done making out, Julie and Amanda drunkenly light up cigarettes for themselves and start smoking in the middle of the club. MICHAEL Ahhh jeez, again with the cigarettes. AMANDA Hey, I only smoke when I drink. MICHAEL But you drink all the time. AMANDA So? MICHAEL I’m just worried, those things will kill you. AMANDA What are you my mom? MICHAEL No, I just care about you. Amanda takes a puff of her cigarette and playfully blows the smoke in his face.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL (coughs) Thanks, you’re acting like that drug dealer now. Amanda turns around and spanks her ass in front of Michael. AMANDA Kiss this baby! As she’s turned around, Amanda starts dancing with a stranger. MICHAEL OK drunk girl. Michael walks over to the bar again while the guy dancing with Amanda gets a little physical with her – grinding with her, lifting up her leg, putting his hands on her ass. In a moment of clarity, Amanda finally realizes what’s happening and she pushes the guy away from her. AMANDA Creep! Amanda stumbles off of the dance floor. A shady-looking MEXICAN in his mid-to-late twenties is eyeing Amanda from across the club. Amanda walks over to Michael at the bar and runs her fingers through his hair. AMANDA (hiccups) What are you doing baby? MICHAEL Just drinking another beer. AMANDA Can I join you? Of course. MICHAEL I even got you another beer.
Michael hands her a cup of beer, they “cheers” and take a quick sip.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The shady-looking Mexican slowly makes his way closer to Michael and Amanda. MICHAEL So what do you want to do tomorrow? AMANDA How about we just stay in our hotel room all day tomorrow and fuck? MICHAEL OK, we can definitely do that but then again we can do that back at my dorm room in the States anytime. I thought maybe we could do something tomorrow that we can’t do in Chicago. AMANDA Like what? MICHAEL I don’t know, like parasailing or a nature hike or checking out the ancient ruins…this is Mexico, they must have ancient ruins around here, or more ancient ruins than what we have back in Chicago. The shady Mexican has now made it up to the bar and is standing close to Amanda. He just stands there minding his own business. AMANDA Let’s go hiking, that way we can have sex in nature, alongside all the other animals. MICHAEL I am down with that. AMANDA I thought you would be my little stud muffin. Amanda kisses Michael. MICHAEL How are you liking Cancun so far?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA I love it… Amanda drapes herself on Michael and gives him a big hug then a playful lap dance. AMANDA (cont’d) …and I love you. Amanda starts kissing Michael all over his face. While her back is turned from her drink, the shady Mexican next to her slips a pill into her beer cup which quickly dissolves. At about the same time, the bartender gives him a new beer. He takes it and walks away. MICHAEL OK, OK, OK baby, you’re tickling me. AMANDA I’m going to be doing a lot worse to you when we get back to the room later. MICHAEL Let’s get back on the dance floor. Michael grabs Amanda’s arm and tries to lead her to the dance floor but Amanda stops him and drags him back to the bar. AMANDA Wait, I need to get my beer. Amanda grabs her beer, takes a large sip from it and walks with Michael back to the dance floor and up to Brendan and Julie. BRENDAN Gimme another bump Mike. MICHAEL Geez, another one? BRENDAN Yeah, I’m jonesing for more. MICHAEL You my friend are a drug addict.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN Maybe so, but I need a hit. Michael looks around to make sure the coast is clear from cops, then he reaches into his pocket, takes out some coke and discreetly passes it over to Brendan. MICHAEL Go easy on it though, I don’t want to have to make another stop to that drug house tomorrow. Pace yourself. BRENDAN Yeah, yeah, yeah. Brendan takes a bump of coke and then lets Julie take a bump as he holds it in his hand. Michael and Amanda go back to dancing but Amanda starts getting visibly disoriented. MICHAEL Are you OK? AMANDA Yeah, yeah, I’m fine. MICHAEL Are you sure? AMANDA Yeah, I’m cool. BRENDAN Mike, Julie wants to get laid real bad. JULIE (hits Brendan on the arm) Hey, like you don’t? BRENDAN We’re going to go christen the hotel room. MICHAEL OK. BRENDAN What are you guys up to?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Well we’re certainly not going to go back to the room with you all. We’re going to hang out here for a little bit longer. BRENDAN OK, well, give us 45 minutes before you barge in. JULIE 45 minutes? You’re being quite generous, are we going to do it eight times? BRENDAN Baby I’m so drunk and so fucked up I’ll probably need the full 45 minutes to come. JULIE Amanda, don’t worry; just give us 30 minutes, tops. MICHAEL Sounds good. Julie notices that Amanda isn’t looking too good. JULIE Amanda, are you OK? MICHAEL Yeah, she’s fine. I think she’s just tired. JULIE OK, well if that’s the case, give us just 25 minutes. Brendan and Julie leave the bar. Michael and Amanda go back to dancing, she periodically takes a sip of her beer as she dances. After a while the room starts spinning for Amanda and she starts having double vision. MICHAEL Amanda, I’ve been holding it as long as (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL (cont’d) I can, but I really need to go pee. Will you be OK here by yourself? AMANDA Yeah. MICHAEL Are you sure? Amanda grabs her forehead and shoos him away with her other hand. AMANDA Yeah, yeah, I’ll be fine. MICHAEL OK, I’ll only be gone for a minute or two. You can come with me to the bathroom. AMANDA No, I’ll just hang out here. up, I can handle myself. MICHAEL OK, suit yourself. Michael walks off to go to the bathroom. Meanwhile, Amanda stays by herself in the middle of the dance floor. The room is spinning even more for her and she’s completely disoriented. Several guys walk up to hit on her but she barely notices it and completely dismisses them. GUY AT SENOR FROG’S #1 Hey baby, how you doing? GUY AT SENOR FROG’S #2 Damn girl, you’re hot! She starts stumbling across the dance floor. A few other guys try to forcibly dance with her, one guy literally grabs her and starts grinding on her, but she manages to get away from each of them. Dazed and confused, Amanda stumbles out of the bar. I’m a grown-
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Juan Carlos and Paco are standing close to the exit and notice her stumble out. JUAN CARLOS Call Miguel, tell him to get the van ready. The two Mexicans follow Amanda outside. EXT. – STREET OUTSIDE OF SENOR FROG’S – NIGHT Amanda is stumbling down a dimly lit, nearly empty, street. She’s being trailed by a gang of Mexicans – Juan Carlos, Paco and three of their associates – who get closer and closer to her as she zig zags her way down the sidewalk. INT. – SENOR FROG’S Michael is standing in a line of about five guys waiting to use the bathroom. He taps his foot on the ground to pass the time and checks his watch to make sure he hasn’t been gone for too long. EXT. – STREET OUTSIDE OF SENOR FROG’S – NIGHT As Amanda walks to the intersection of a quiet street, she is approached by the group of Mexicans. JUAN CARLOS There you are girl! AMANDA (confused) What? JUAN CARLOS Ahhh, come on, you already forgot me? I sold you and your friends some stuff earlier today. AMANDA (confused) What? JUAN CARLOS Wow, you must really be fucked up. Poor American girls, they never know when to say when.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA (confused) What? The five Mexicans make a circle around Amanda so she has no escape. INT. – POLICE CAR Two officers, who are sitting in a parked police car alongside the road, see Amanda get surrounded by five Mexicans. One of the officers points out the girl to the other. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 Hey look over there, that blonde girl looks like she might be in trouble! MEXICAN PATROLMAN #2 Let’s check it out. The two patrolmen get out of their car. EXT. – STREET OUTSIDE OF SENOR FROG’S – NIGHT The two patrolmen approach the gang of Mexicans and Amanda. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 Excuse me gentlemen. PACO Officers, is there a problem? MEXICAN PATROLMAN #2 I guess that all depends on what you’re up to this evening and what you’re doing with this white girl here. PACO We’re just escorting this fine young lady back to her hotel to make sure she gets home OK. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 Miss, are you OK? Amanda is so disoriented she can’t even answer the cops.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 Miss? Amanda still can’t answer him. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #2 OK, maybe you guys should just leave this girl alone. Juan Carlos, whose back has been to the cops the entire time, finally turns around to face them. JUAN CARLOS What we’re doing with her is none of your concern. The two cops look mortified after seeing Juan Carlos since they obviously recognize him. JUAN CARLOS You know who I am, right? Juan Carlos lifts up his shirt slightly to reveal a handgun in his waistband. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #2 (nervously) But of course Juan Carlos. JUAN CARLOS It’s in your best interest to turn around, walk the other way and forget what you saw here. Both patrolmen look back and forth a few times between Juan Carlos and the helpless Amanda before answering. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 For us to do that, we’ll need a little incentive. JUAN CARLOS I can respect that. Juan Carlos reaches into his pocket, takes out a few bills and gives them to the patrolman.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS That’s all you get, but it should be good enough for just minding your own business. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 Gracias senor. JUAN CARLOS Get going. The two patrolmen walk away leaving a helpless Amanda to fend for herself. She looks scared but she’s unable to do anything about it. INT. – POLICE CAR The two patrolmen get into their car. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #2 Life’s too short to go against the Cancun Drug Cartel. MEXICAN PATROLMAN #1 At least we made some money out of it. The cops slowly drive through the intersection and past the group of Mexicans and Amanda. They look right at Amanda, who is close to passing out and is being propped up by a couple of the Mexicans. EXT. – STREET OUTSIDE OF SENOR FROG’S – NIGHT Juan Carlos looks back at Amanda. JUAN CARLOS Now it’s just you and us. Juan Carlos runs his hands through her hair. JUAN CARLOS Too bad we couldn’t get your cute brunette friend, but if anyone were to ask me, I’d say we got the much prettier one. Amanda ends up finally passing out and falls into Juan Carlos’ arms. Just as that happens, a white van pulls up right in front of them and the side door opens up.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS Get her in there. Paco and the others help Juan Carlos put Amanda in the back of the van. Once that’s done they all get in and drive off quickly. INT. – SENOR FROG’S Michael returns from the bathroom and goes back to the dance floor to find Amanda. He goes to the exact spot where they were hanging out before but he doesn’t see her so he does a 360 to look for her. When he doesn’t see her he starts walking through the club looking for her. MICHAEL (yells) Amanda!
GUY AT SENOR FROG’S #3 Hey, shut up pal! MICHAEL Go fuck yourself asshole, I’m looking for my girlfriend. GUY AT SENOR FROG’S #3 She’s back at my hotel room waiting to give me head. Michael ignores his comment and continues walking around the club. Having walked through the whole place and not seeing her, he walks up to the bartender behind the bar. MICHAEL Excuse me, but have you seen a cute, blonde American girl about five feet six, five feet seven, blue eyes…drunk? SENOR FROG’S BARTENDER Look around dickhead, this club is full of that!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael looks around the club and sees that most of the girl’s are cute, drunk American blondes. MICHAEL (deflated) Point taken. Michael takes one more look through the club – walking around a bunch of drunk people hanging out, people funneling beers and doing body shots, guys grinding on girls and others practically simulating sex on the dance floor – but he doesn’t see her so he runs out of the club. EXT. – STREET OUTSIDE OF SENOR FROG’S – NIGHT Michael runs into the street from the club then takes out his cell phone and dials Amanda’s number. It rings several times then goes to voicemail. AMANDA (O.S.) Hi, you’ve reached Amanda, I can’t come to the phone right now so please leave a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. MICHAEL Amanda, Amanda, it’s me, where are you, where did you go? Call me as soon as you can, I’m worried. Michael hangs up the phone then immediately texts her: “Where are you?” He puts his phone back into his pocket and looks up and down the street, then he yells out. MICHAEL (yells) Amanda!
He looks both ways again but he doesn’t see her anywhere, so he runs down the street and back towards his hotel. EXT. – CANCUN BEACH RESORT – NIGHT Michael runs up from the street and heads towards the front entrance of the resort.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – CANCUN BEACH RESORT LOBBY Michael runs through the lobby, past the concierge desk and towards the elevator bank. HOTEL CONCIERGE (yells) Hey, slow down there! (to himself) Stupid, drunk over privileged American kids. INT. – HOTEL ROOM Michael opens the door to the room. there so he flips on the light. It’s pitch dark in
Julie and Brendan are under the covers of their bed and Julie is in the middle of moaning when Michael barges in. Annoyed, Brendan throws a pillow at Michael. BRENDAN What the hell, bro? JULIE Yeah, didn’t we say 25 minutes? It’s been, it’s been like only 17-18 minutes. Michael ignores them. MICHAEL Where’s Amanda? BRENDAN (confused) What? MICHAEL Amanda, did she come back here? BRENDAN What, do you think we were having a threesome? MICHAEL This is serious Brendan.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael walks into the bathroom and checks it for Amanda but doesn’t find her. BRENDAN No, I haven’t see her. What happened, I thought she was with you at the club? MICHAEL She was, but I went to the bathroom and when I came back she was gone. Just disappeared. BRENDAN Really? JULIE She wasn’t looking good when we left her, I hope she didn’t wander off. MICHAEL Me neither. (pause) Shoot! I knew I shouldn’t have left her alone in the club. Shoot! BRENDAN Calm down, I’m sure she’s fine. MICHAEL Calm down? Calm down? I can’t calm down. We’re strangers in a strange land, she doesn’t know her way around. Plus, we’re Americans, it’s not like we’re that well liked outside of the US. JULIE Mike, now you’re just being ridiculous. Michael walks out onto the EXT. – HOTEL ROOM BALCONY – NIGHT Michael looks out helplessly over Cancun and screams out. MICHAEL (yells) Amanda!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN (O.S.) Mike, you’re not going to find her that way. Michael walks back into the INT. – HOTEL ROOM MICHAEL I’m going downstairs to the concierge to see if he can help. BRENDAN I’ll throw on some pants and a t-shirt and will meet you downstairs. MICHAEL Thanks. Michael rushes out of the hotel room. Brendan and Julie remain laying in the bed. JULIE I hope Amanda is OK. BRENDAN I’m sure she’s fine. She got too fucked it, it happens. I’m sure it happens hundreds of times a night in this city, if not thousands of times. She’s probably passed out at a bus stop along the road, remember when we walked by those bus stops tonight, how many people did we see passed out there? Nine? Ten people? I’m sure the cops will find her and bring her back to the hotel. JULIE You’re probably right, but we should still help Mike to find her. BRENDAN Of course, of course. (pause) Can we help him after we finish having sex though?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JULIE Ohhh come on, don’t you think the mood is ruined? BRENDAN Baby, the mood can never be ruined for me. (grabs the remote control) Let me just get a movie from Spank-OVision to rev my engine again. Brendan reaches in for a kiss but is pushed back by Julie. JULIE Come on Casanova, put your clothes back on and let’s go meet up with Mike. INT. – CANCUN BEACH RESORT LOBBY Michael is standing at the concierge desk in midconversation with the CONCIERGE, an older, well put together gentleman wearing a crisp suit. HOTEL CONCIERGE You Americans are all the same, aren’t you? MICHAEL (confused) What do you mean? HOTEL CONCIERGE You’re all spoiled. You come down here to our beautiful city and destroy it. You drink, you party excessively, you vomit in our streets, you break stuff, wreck our hotel rooms, fight with the natives. And then you’re shocked when one of you go missing due, undoubtedly, to the overindulgence of drugs and alcohol. MICHAEL Let me know when you’re done lecturing me.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese HOTEL CONCIERGE I see this happen all the time. I will call the cops for you, they’ll come, maybe ask a question or two, but they really won’t be able to help. They have bigger things to worry about, like an ongoing drug war…a drug war, mind you, that’s being funded by American kids like you and your insatiable appetite for drugs. Michael is joined by Brendan and Julie at the desk. HOTEL CONCIERGE (cont’d) Besides, I hate to say it but when a girl goes missing like this and her boyfriend comes looking for her, she’s usually hiding in a bathroom stall giving some guy head or shacking up at another guy’s hotel room, a guy that she probably met on the dance floor of some random club. MICHAEL I should fucking hit you. Michael winds up to punch him but is held back by Brendan. BRENDAN Whoa, whoa, whoa don’t do that Mike. I’m sure this prick is willing to help us if we only ask nicely. MICHAEL Fine. (regains his composure) Sir, will you please call the cops for me so I can find my missing girlfriend? HOTEL CONCIERGE Since you’re a guest of the resort, I am forced to do that for you, so I will. The hotel concierge picks up the phone and calls the police.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese
INT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE Amanda is laying on a couch in the same rundown, nearly empty, house where she bought drugs earlier in the day. There is a small TV on in the corner of the room tuned to Fox Sports Espanol and showing soccer. Amanda is still passed out unconscious when Juan Carlos enters the room and approaches the couch. He moves her legs and sits down beneath them on one side of the couch. Moving her legs wakes her up; she is still completely dazed and is barely awake. Paco enters the room and stands by the TV. PACO So what are we going to do with her? JUAN CARLOS Probably hold her for ransom. Look at her, she seems like she comes from money. She looks as though she has a family that would care terribly if she went missing and would do anything to get their little baby back. PACO That’ll probably take a little while to facilitate, what are we going to do with her in the meantime? JUAN CARLOS Well I don’t want her having any chance of escaping, she’s worth a lot of money to us. So watch, here’s what we’re going to do with her in the meantime. Juan Carlos puts his arm behind Amanda’s neck and gently lifts up her head. JUAN CARLOS Hey, hey, you OK? Amanda doesn’t say anything as she’s still very dazed, she tries to open her eyes but can barely even do that.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS Paco, grab that box on the TV. Paco grabs the box, walks over to Juan Carlos and gives it to him. Juan Carlos opens the box and takes out a needle. He grabs Amanda’s arm, taps it to find a vein then injects her with heroin. Amanda’s eyes roll back in her head and she lays back down on the couch. JUAN CARLOS We’re going to keep her drugged up so she can’t resist her captivity. Juan Carlos gently rubs his fingers against Amanda’s face. JUAN CARLOS Sleep my dear, sleep. Juan Carlos stands up and approaches Paco. JUAN CARLOS Paco, I’m going to get some sleep, but make sure there’s someone in here guarding her at all times. PACO No problem. INT. – CANCUN BEACH RESORT LOBBY Michael, Brendan and Julie are sitting in the lobby impatiently waiting for the cops to arrive. Michael is nervously biting his fingernails. BRENDAN So Mike, do you want to play a video game while we wait? I saw that they have an arcade somewhere around here. JULIE Brendan, don’t.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN What? I’m just trying to take his mind off of things. MICHAEL Thanks Brendan, but I’m good. Michael notices two cops enter the resort lobby and immediately jumps up to greet them. MICHAEL Officers, hi I called you all, I’m Michael. CANCUN COP #1 Ahh yes. The cop checks his notes in his little notepad. CANCUN COP #1 (cont’d) …And you’d like to report a missing person. MICHAEL That’s right officer. CANCUN COP #2 How long has she been missing for? MICHAEL I don’t know, I guess an hour, an hour and a half now. The cops roll their eyes. CANCUN COP #1 Really? That’s it? MICHAEL Yeah, what difference does it make how long she’s been missing for? The point is she’s missing. The cops look over to the hotel concierge, who’s standing close by behind his desk, and shoot him a stern look. HOTEL CONCIERGE I’m sorry, I tried to talk him out of it, but he was adamant.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Is there’s a problem officers? CANCUN COP #2 Kid, we have a lot better things to do then chase around Cancun looking for your drunken girlfriend. CANCUN COP #1 Yeah, we have real crime to fight. don’t have time for these games. MICHAEL (shocked) I don’t believe this. CANCUN COP #1 Did you see her get abducted? MICHAEL No. CANCUN COP #2 When was the last time you saw her? MICHAEL I went to the bathroom at Senor Frogs and left her behind on the dance floor and when I came back about 10 minutes later, she was gone. CANCUN COP #2 And I’m assuming she was drinking? MICHAEL Well, yes. CANCUN COP #2 Heavily? MICHAEL I guess. CANCUN COP #1 Was she on any other substances? MICHAEL (takes a step back) No, of course not. We
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese CANCUN COP #1 No drugs? MICHAEL No, not at all. She’s not into that. Actually she’s pretty much against that kind of stuff. CANCUN COP #2 But she was drinking heavily? MICHAEL Yes, I already told you she was. The cops look at each other and laugh. MICHAEL (annoyed) Is there something funny? CANCUN COP #1 Kid, you just need to relax. MICHEAL What do you mean? CANCUN COP #2 Your girlfriend is probably passed out on the beach. I’ve seen tons of guys and girls going to the bars around here, drinking too much, thinking it’d be cool to take a dip in the water; getting down to the beach and passing out even before they make it into the water. CANCUN COP #1 It happens all the time. MICHAEL Maybe, but my Amanda wouldn’t do that, she’s more responsible than that. CANCUN COP #2 That’s what they all say, everyone thinks that their friend or girlfriend wouldn’t do this or that but then they come down to Cancun and turn into someone different.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese CANCUN COP #1 Look, I bet she’ll turn up tomorrow morning and you’ll all have a funny story to share. She’ll come back. CANCUN COP #2 And if she doesn’t, call us in 24 hours and for a modest fee of $5,000 American dollars we’ll work on finding your friend. MICHAEL (confused) Wait, what? I have to pay you to find my girlfriend? CANCUN COP #1 That’s right. MICHAEL But you’re the police? CANCUN COP #1 We are, but we also have a six month backlog of missing people cases to deal with. CANCUN COP #2 If not a year. CANCUN COP #1 If you want us to help you look for her, you’ll need to pay us. MICHAEL That’s ridiculous! CANCUN COP #1 That’s Mexico. MICHAEL That’s extortion! CANCUN COP #2 Call it what you will, but that’s the price you’ll have to pay. MICHAEL Fine, I’ll just call the police department and get someone who isn’t corrupt.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The cops laugh at Michael’s statement. CANCUN COP #2 Good luck with that, I can tell you in all seriousness that this is standard operating procedure. MICHAEL It can’t be. CANCUN COP #1 Believe us, it is. Go ahead, waste your time with another officer, you’ll just get the same offer. I can bet you that. BRENDAN This collusion is unbelievable. CANCUN COP #1 Payment would need to be in cash as well. JULIE This can’t be happening. One of the cops reaches into his pocket and gives Michael a card. CANCUN COP #2 Here, if she doesn’t show up in 24 hours, and you care to find her, call us. CANCUN COP #1 Remember, cash…upfront. MICHAEL Upfront? CANCUN COP #1 Yes, upfront; if we’re putting time into this case we’ll need the cash first. MICHAEL Fine. CANCUN COP #2 Good night…and good luck. The cops turn around and walk out of the lobby.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Is everyone in this city against us? JULIE It seems like it. BRENDAN Maybe we should just call home. MICHAEL I don’t want to have to do that until we know she’s missing. I don’t want to alarm anyone, especially her parents. They find this out and they’ll blame me and hate me forever. JULIE Michael they won’t blame you, they’ll just care about getting Amanda back. Michael looks outside and sees that it’s almost sunrise. MICHAEL The sun’s coming up, I’m going down to the beach to look for her. JULIE OK, we’ll go with you. MICHAEL No, Julie, you stay back just in case she comes back to the hotel. Brendan, come with me. (pause) Let me call her one more time though. Michael takes his phone out and calls Amanda again. INT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE A different, shady-looking, young MEXICAN is sitting on the floor across the room from Amanda, who’s still laying on the couch. He is staring intently at her as she lays there sleeping, still dressed in her club clothes and looking sexy. He is sweating and getting agitated as he watches her toss and turn restlessly on the couch, her shirt is barely
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese covering her breasts as she moves around and her short skirt rides up to reveal a little bit of her panties when she moves. After watching this, he grabs his crotch over his jeans. Suddenly, the phone in her purse, which is sitting by the couch, starts vibrating. After a few vibrating rings, the young Mexican stands up and approaches the couch. He gets down on his knees and searches through her purse to find the phone. Once he finds the phone, he takes it out and looks at it, the name on the phone says: “Michael.” The vibrating stops and he puts the phone back into the purse. He’s now kneeling right next to the couch and is literally inches away from Amanda. He looks at her for a few moments then runs his dirty fingers through her beautiful blonde hair. Amanda’s eyes open slightly, she’s still so drugged up that she’s in a daze and doesn’t know what’s going on. From Amanda’s perspective, the room is spinning and she’s completely disoriented, she can barely keep conscious. The Mexican stands up over Amanda and looks down at her silently for a few seconds. Then suddenly he pulls his jeans down to his ankles and gets on top of her. He pushes her skirt up, pulls her top down around her waist and mounts her. He grabs her breasts and forcibly kisses her, Amanda, unable to resist, just lays there in a daze. Her eyes are open but she’s helpless to do anything. He thrusts into her rhythmically, each one harder and more violent than the last. She’s being moved around like a rag doll. The room is still spinning for her and, although she sees this guy on top of her, she is so disoriented that she’s helpless to do anything about it. He breathes heavily on her face but she offers no reaction. After several strokes, he lets out a slight scream as he finishes, cautious not to alert anyone else in the house to what he’s doing.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese He sighs heavily after he finishes and kisses her on the lips one last time then licks the side of her face. He stands up, pulls his jeans up, fixes Amanda’s shirt and skirt to cover her up, walks back over to his spot on the other side of the room and sits back down to watch over her. He sits there quietly just watching Amanda, who is staring at him as she continues to lie on the couch. After several moments, Paco enters the room to check on things. PACO Is everything OK in here? AMANDA’S RAPIST Si. PACO I thought I heard a noise? AMANDA’S RAPIST No. Paco looks at Amanda lying helplessly on the couch. She moves her eyes off of her rapist and now looks at Paco. PACO OK. Paco turns around and leaves the room. EXT. – THE BEACH – SUNRISE Michael and Brendan are walking along a nearly deserted beach during sunrise. MICHAEL Where the hell is she? BRENDAN Don’t worry Mike, we’ll find her. Michael does a 360 around the beach then yells out. MICHAEL (yells) Amanda!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN Calm down, it’ll be OK.
MICHAEL Oh really, you think? I’m not so sure that it’ll be OK. My life is falling apart. There’s no telling what happened to Amanda. BRENDAN Let me check in with Julie and see if she came back to the hotel. MICHAEL I’d hope she would’ve called us if she came back. BRENDAN Let me just check with her. Brendan takes his cell phone out and calls Julie. JULIE (O.S.) Hello. BRENDAN Hey it’s Brendan, you got anything? JULIE (O.S.) (deflated) No, not yet. BRENDAN OK, let me know if you hear anything. Brendan hangs up his cell phone. BRENDAN Sorry Mike, nothing yet. Michael kicks the sand in frustration. MICHAEL Fuck! BRENDAN We’ll find her Mike, we’ll find her.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael sees a blonde woman sleeping on the beach in the distance. MICHAEL Hey, is that her? BRENDAN Where? MICHAEL (points down the beach) There, down there. That blonde girl, it looks like she’s sleeping on the beach. (excitedly) I think that’s her! Michael starts sprinting down the beach. try to catch up with him. Brendan runs to
BRENDAN (yells) Mike, don’t get too excited, it might not be her! Michael finally makes it to the blonde girl, who is laying on her stomach. She has the same figure and hair style as Amanda. MICHAEL Amanda! Michael gets down on his knees and forcibly pushes the girl over in order to see her face. Once he sees she’s not Amanda, he falls back onto the beach, disappointed. The girl, startled, immediately yells at him. BLONDE GIRL ON BEACH Hey, what are you doing asshole! Brendan finally catches up to Michael and keels over to catch his breath. MICHAEL (deflated) Shit, I’m sorry.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BLONDE GIRL ON BEACH You better be, my boyfriend’s right over there in the water. All I have to do is call out and he’ll come over here and beat your ass. MICHAEL I don’t want that, again I’m sorry. I’m just looking for my girlfriend, she’s missing. BLONDE GIRL ON BEACH (uninterested) Well, I hope you find her. The girl goes back to laying on her stomach. Michael punches the sand in frustration and begins to cry. MICHAEL (shakes his head) Damn. BRENDAN Mike, let’s go. Let’s get out of here. She’s not around here. MICHAEL I’m falling apart Brendan, I’m falling apart. Brendan puts his arm around Michael. BRENDAN We’ll find her Mike, we’ll find her. Michael and Brendan start walking off the beach. INT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE LIVING ROOM Paco is sitting at a makeshift table in the room where Amanda is laying on the couch. He is rifling through her purse as she wakes up. PACO Ahhh, she’s awake again.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Paco finds her wallet and looks through it, he examines her driver’s license. PACO Amanda Beckett of Chicago, Illinois. Yes, I remember your little guy friend saying that you were all from Chicago. Well Amanda Beckett, what does your dad do? AMANDA (softly) He’s…an…engineer. Engineer? right? PACO Good money in that field,
AMANDA (softly) He…ummm, he makes a decent living. PACO How much do you think he’d pay to see his little girl again? Amanda looks around the room and finally realizes that she doesn’t know where she’s at. AMANDA (confused) Where am I? PACO Your new home. Amanda looks at Paco but doesn’t recognize him. AMANDA (confused) Who are you? PACO I’m your guardian. AMANDA Who?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Paco doesn’t reply to her and continues to rummage through her purse. PACO Let’s see what else you have in here… a cell phone. Paco puts the cell phone in his pocket. PACO (cont’d) …a pack of gum. Paco takes a piece of gum out and the pack and puts it in his mouth. PACO (cont’d) …and that’s pretty much all you have. You’re a little low maintenance, I’m surprised. Juan Carlos, dressed in a white wife beater and jeans, walks into the room with MIGUEL, a Mexican man in his latetwenties. JUAN CARLOS We might have a change of plans. Come on, stop playing around with her purse and come into the kitchen. PACO What about her? JUAN CARLOS Don’t worry, Miguel will watch her. Paco stands up and walks out of the room with Juan Carlos. Miguel takes Paco’s place at the table; he rummages through Amanda’s purse and takes out the pack of gum. He takes a piece out and starts chewing it, leaving the pack on the table. KITCHEN Juan Carlos walks over to the stove and continues making a breakfast of eggs and bacon. PACO So what’s up?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS The girl, we might have a new plan for her. PACO We’re not going to hold her for ransom? JUAN CARLOS Maybe not. PACO We’re not going to let her go, are we? JUAN CARLOS No, but I am working on a new revenue stream for her. Juan Carlos takes a piece of sizzling bacon out of the pan and passes it over to Paco. JUAN CARLOS (cont’d) Here, try a piece of bacon, it’s maple flavored. Paco eats the piece of bacon. PACO So what’s the new revenue source? JUAN CARLOS I had a meeting with the Yucatan Cartel earlier this morning about the usual business and they mentioned how they’re launching a new business venture. PACO What’s that? JUAN CARLOS (eyes light up) Human trafficking. PACO Human trafficking? JUAN CARLOS Yeah, think of it like white slavery. I made a deal with them, we split the profits.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese PACO How will this work? JUAN CARLOS We kidnap girls from here in Cancun, teenagers, girls in their early twenties, then we transport them a few hours west to the Port of Yucatan. There, the cartel will take possession of them and ship the girls over to Thailand or another Southeast Asia country where they will be sold into prostitution or whatever else they’re needed for. Quite frankly, I don’t care what they do with these bitches once they take possession of them. Sounds like these girls going to be day in, day PACO an intense plan, but once land in Asia, how are they forced into prostitution out?
JUAN CARLOS Look, I don’t know the details, and I don’t need to know the details, but I’m assuming the constant presence of mindaltering drugs in their system will keep them in line. PACO So when are we moving her? JUAN CARLOS She’s going to be our test run, to make sure the route and transport runs smoothly…we’re going to move her this afternoon. Paco peeks out of the kitchen and looks at sweet, innocent Amanda helplessly laying on the couch. PACO It’s almost sad to see a girl like that being sold into slavery. Juan Carlos walks over to Paco and looks at Amanda as well.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS Paco, when you look at her, I don’t want you to see a hot American blonde piece of ass, I want you to see pesos…a lot of them. INT. – HOTEL ROOM Michael, Brendan and Julie are sitting on a bed in the hotel room. JULIE OK, let’s take a step back and think about this for a moment. MICHAEL What’s there to think about? missing! She’s gone
JULIE Yes, but we have to think about whether this was totally random or if this was planned. MICHAEL (surprised) What, you think she planned all this? You think her master plan was to start a new life in Mexico? JULIE No, I’m not saying that at all. But what if, what if, her disappearance wasn’t random at all? What if somebody was watching her and saw the perfect opportunity to kidnap her when they saw us leave the club and saw you go to the bathroom? MICHAEL Like who? JULIE (thinking) I don’t know. BRENDAN Well let’s think about this for a moment, Julie may be on to something.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The three of them sit there silently for a few moments as they think. Finally, Michael looks like he has a revelation. MICHAEL Friggin’ Brendan. BRENDAN (confused) What did I do? MICHAEL Yesterday, you told those drug dealers where we were going at night, Senor Frog’s. Damn it! They probably cased the joint looking for us. BRENDAN Oh come on, that’s ridiculous! Those guys were just a bunch of two-bit punk drug dealers. MICHAEL Were they? Michael stands up and kicks the trash can. MICHAEL (cont’d) I knew you shouldn’t have said anything to them! BRENDAN I was just making small talk to ease the tension and pass the time. Those guys were scary, I thought I’d try to connect with them on an emotional level. MICHAEL By telling them where we, and our hot girlfriends, were going to hang out and get stupidly drunk at night? BRENDAN This is too much to handle, I need a hit of coke. Brendan stands up and walks over to the table to grab a vial of coke. Once he grabs it, Michael knocks it out of his hand.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Stop, that’s what got us into this trouble in the first place. BRENDAN You don’t know that for sure. MICHAEL Well regardless, we need all our wits about us so no more of that shit until we find Amanda. BRENDAN Fine. JULIE So what do you want to do? MICHAEL I want to check out this drug dealer angle. JULIE OK, and how are we going to do that? MICHAEL We’re going to go back to that rundown house that we went to yesterday. You’re crazy. JULIE You’re absolutely crazy! How
MICHAEL It’s the only thing I can think of. else are we going to find them?
BRENDAN So you’re just going to walk right up to the house, knock on the door and ask them if they stole your girlfriend? MICHAEL Yes. BRENDAN Really? MICHAEL Yes.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN And you’re going to do this yourself? MICHAEL Well not without help. BRENDAN You know I’m there for you, but I think we’ll still need more help. MICHAEL I agree. That’s why we’re going to buy some guns for protection. JULIE (shocked) Are you kidding me? MICHAEL It’s the only way. JULIE Mike, if you really think these guys are responsible, why don’t we call the police? MICHAEL (laughs) The police? You saw how they treated us last night. They’re not going to help us. No way, no, we have to do this. JULIE OK, fine, I’m on board. MICHAEL No you’re not. Your job is to continue waiting around here in case Amanda comes back. JULIE I can help though. MICHAEL I know you can, but it could get dangerous. BRENDAN I mean we’re talking about getting guns here. I won’t let you get in harm’s way (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN (cont’d) Me and Mike will take care
like that. of this.
MICHAEL Speaking of that, we’re wasting time just sitting around talking. Let’s start doing. BRENDAN Where are we going to get guns? MICHAEL It shouldn’t be that hard, it’s Mexico. It took us only a few minutes to find drugs yesterday, how hard could it be to find guns? BRENDAN You make it sound like you think guns are being sold on every street corner. Maybe we should just ask the concierge? MICHAEL Good idea. INT. – CANCUN BEACH RESORT LOBBY Michael and Brendan are standing in front of the concierge desk talking to the concierge. MICHAEL Look, you don’t like me and I sure as hell don’t like you. You think I’m spoiled prick and I think you’re a pretentious asshole. But the fact remains that my girlfriend is still missing and no one in this godforsaken town wants to help me out. So I’m going to take matters into my own hands, which means that I need to find a gun. That’s right, since no one is willing to help me, I am actually contemplating going out and buying a gun. Ridiculous I know, but I don’t think I have any other option. HOTEL CONCIERGE So what do you want from me?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Where the hell can I buy a gun? HOTEL CONCIERGE Why should I help you? You and your friends have been nothing but a pain in the ass ever since you checked in yesterday. Michael sees a picture of the concierge, his wife and his young daughter sitting on the desk. MICHAEL Because this girl is someone’s daughter. (pause) Don’t you have a daughter, or a niece that you care about? (pause) My girlfriend is out there somewhere, she could be in trouble, she could be hurt, but regardless I know she’s alone, even if there are people around her, and she’s in this country for the first time. I’m sure she’s scared. (pause) Forget about me, just think about how this girl’s dad will feel if his precious little daughter doesn’t come back home to him. The concierge stands there thinking for a moment until he takes out a notepad and writes an address on it. HOTEL CONCIERGE Look, I don’t know any actual gun dealers, but I do know where you can go to buy a gun. (hands the piece of paper to Mike) Go to the Snakes Den Marketplace, it’s a short cab ride away. It’s this big open-aired market in a rough part of town where vendors come and set up shop to sell their wares. You can find anything there, even guns, you just have to ask the right person. MICHAEL Thanks.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese HOTEL CONCIERGE (sincerely) Good luck. EXT. – ROAD ALONGSIDE THE BEACH IN CANCUN – DAY A taxi cab drives along a road that parallels the Cancun beach. INT. – TAXI CAB Michael and Brendan are riding in the backseat of a cab being driving by an older AFRICAN-AMERICAN MAN. The radio is playing Bob Marley music. MICHAEL Excuse me, sir. As you know we’re going to the Snakes Den marketplace. TAXI CAB DRIVER (laughs) Ohhh I know, you guys are showing some balls going to that part of town. Some shady shit goes on there, more so than other parts of Cancun, if you can believe that. Tell me something, what’s two clean-cut American kids like yourselves doing going to the Marketplace? MICHAEL We’re looking to buy guns. TAXI CAB DRIVER (laughs) Whoa, whoa, whoa, no shit? Who are you guys trying to be? Rambo? MICHAEL We’re just trying to right a wrong. TAXI CAB DRIVER You crazy Americans, you think that guns can solve all your problems. BRENDAN This coming from a guy who lives in a country where thousands of your citizens are killed each year to drug violence?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese TAXI CAB DRIVER Only because Americans make the guns and buy the drugs is why we have all this violence. BRENDAN Of course, blame someone else for your problems. MICHAEL Brendan, calm down. (to the driver) Do you have any idea where we can by guns at the marketplace? Who we can talk to? TAXI CAB DRIVER For an extra $20 I’ll tell you where to go in the marketplace. For an extra $50 I’ll take you there directly. And for an extra $100 I’ll make sure you don’t get shot. MICHAEL I’ll give you the $100 if you take us to the exact place we need to go. No games. TAXI CAB DRIVER No problem. EXT. – SNAKES DEN MARKETPLACE – DAY Michael, Brendan and the taxi cab driver are walking through a packed open-aired marketplace filled with people walking about and vendors selling their trinkets behind little booths. The walkway that snakes around the marketplace is tight and crowded with people. TAXI CAB DRIVER Even though I said I’ll make sure you don’t get shot, watch your back, my eyes can’t be everywhere at all times. BRENDAN Do you know where you’re going?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese TAXI CAB DRIVER (looks at Michael) Your friend asks a lot of questions. MICHAEL I know, don’t mind him, he’s an idiot sometimes and he doesn’t know when to shut up all of the time. TAXI CAB DRIVER Look boys, I told you I was going to take you to where you needed to go and I’m a man of my word. MICHAEL That’s hard to believe a guy like that exists in Mexico. TAXI CAB DRIVER Believe me, I am. The three of them approach a vendor behind a small, rundown booth. TAXI CAB DRIVER And here he is. (pause) My man, how’s it going Jamaal? JAMAAL, a skinny African-American in his early thirties, shakes the driver’s hand. JAMAAL It’s good, it’s good. What can I do you for? TAXI CAB DRIVER My friends over here would like to buy a couple of your special products. JAMAAL These are your friends? TAXI CAB DRIVER Yes. Well they bought my friendship, but they’re friends nonetheless.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JAMAAL (laughs) Of course…forever the businessman. TAXI CAB DRIVER So what do you say, can they buy a couple of your specials? Jamaal looks Michael and Brendan up and down, sizing them up, before he speaks. JAMAAL OK, follow me. Even I don’t do this kind of business out in the open. Jamaal walks through a curtain behind the booth, followed by Michael, Brendan and the taxi cab driver. INT. – ROOM BEHIND BOOTH IN MARKETPLACE Michael is inspecting a handgun that Jamaal has just given him. JAMAAL You see, if the cops saw me selling guns out in the open, they’ll shake me down for a percentage, cutting into my profit margins. I’m just a poor vendor trying to make ends meet, so I can’t have that happen. BRENDAN The friggin’ man, trying to get his piece of everything; especially from the working man. It’s just not right. Jamaal, the taxi driver and Michael all look at him like he’s crazy. Michael aims the gun and pretends to fire. JAMAAL How do you like it? MICHAEL It shoots right? JAMAAL It does, but bullets are extra.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL OK, I’ll take it…and one for my friend too. JAMAAL Excellent. I’m sure you’ll be quite happy with your purchase, it carries quite a punch. MICHAEL Good. JAMAAL What do you boys need guns for anyways? MICHAEL You ask a lot of questions don’t you? JAMAAL (laughs) Hey, it’s all good man. I don’t care, I just want to get paid. INT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE LIVING ROOM Juan Carlos is standing in the living room looking at his watch. JUAN CARLOS It’s time, let’s move out. (looks at one of his Mexican associates) Drive the van up to the house. The young Mexican races out of the house to get the van. JUAN CARLOS Paco, grab the girl. Paco picks up Amanda, who is still laying dazed and confused on the couch, and puts her over his shoulder. Juan Carlos points to a couple other young Mexican associates standing in the room.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS You guys come with us, we’ll need some muscle; you never know what might happen when the money changes hands. (yells) Miguel, get over here. Miguel walks into the room from the kitchen. JUAN CARLOS Miguel, we’re going to be gone for a couple days taking care of this. Watch over things while we’re away, handle our business, take care of all the stupid Americans that come by looking for a fix. MIGUEL No problem boss. Juan Carlos looks out the window and sees the van pull up to the house. JUAN CARLOS OK, let’s go. Juan Carlos, a few of his associates and Paco, who’s carrying Amanda, walk out of the house and enter the back of the van. INT. – WHITE VAN After everyone else enters the van, Paco lays Amanda down in the back of the van, gets in and closes the back door. He quickly ties Amanda’s arms behind her back with a rope and then ties her ankles together with another piece of rope. Juan Carlos jumps into the passenger seat. JUAN CARLOS Let’s go. EXT. – DIRT ROAD OUTSIDE THE DRUG HOUSE - DAY The van drives off the lawn and up the street. turn at the intersection and enters traffic. It makes a
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The van passes Michael and Brendan who are walking along the street heading to the dirt road that leads to the drug house. BRENDAN Any idea what we’re going to do when we get to the house? MICHAEL I haven’t thought that far ahead yet. BRENDAN Well maybe you should since we’re only about five minutes away from it. MICHAEL OK, fine. We’re going to knock on the door and politely ask whoever answers it where Amanda is. If they don’t tell us and I get the feeling that they’re lying then I’m going to draw my gun and force them to tell us. OK. BRENDAN What if there are six guys there?
MICHAEL Then we’ll take them by surprise. BRENDAN Ohhhkay. MICHAEL Look, these guys probably cater to a bunch of goofy, American kids just looking to get high and not knowing any better. BRENDAN Like us. MICHAEL Yeah, like us. They’re never expecting a bunch of gun-toting guys that look like us showing up and getting in their grill. BRENDAN They’re drug dealers, don’t you think (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN (cont’d) they’ll be prepared for anything, I mean considering that they’re in a house full of drugs and cash? MICHAEL I’m not saying they won’t have guns in the house; I’m just saying we can surprise them. BRENDAN How so? MICHAEL By acting like two goofy American kids just looking to get high. BRENDAN I can do that. MICHAEL I know you can. (pause) With all that said, let’s hope there aren’t six guys in the house. I’d be happy with just two. BRENDAN Yeah, me too. (pause) Have you ever shot a gun before? MICHAEL Only at Dave & Buster’s, they have all those cool shooting games so I’ve put some time in on that. You? BRENDAN No, but my older brother had the gun that went with the original Nintendo, so I used to target shoot on Duck Hunt and Hogan’s Alley, I was pretty good too. MICHAEL I was more of a Gumshoe guy myself. BRENDAN Ohh, I liked that too.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL (sarcastically) OK, so it sounds like we’re fully qualified to be carrying a loaded firearm. Brendan takes out his gun from his waistband and waves it in the air. BRENDAN Hell yeah! Michael is quick to put his hand on Brendan’s gun and push it back down to his waistband in an effort to hide it. MICHAEL Jesus Brendan, are you crazy!?! BRENDAN What? Brendan puts his gun back into his waistband. MICHAEL Do you want us to get shot right here? Look around, this isn’t the type of neighborhood where we should be whipping out a pistol, because these people will shoot first and not even bother to ask questions later. BRENDAN OK, OK, OK. MICHAEL Just be cool. Can you try being that for a few minutes, please? BRENDAN Man I’m always cool. MICHAEL No you’re not. Michael and Brendan walk up to the drug house. BRENDAN 49.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Here we are. (pause) Follow my lead. Don’t do anything until I do it. If you see me draw my gun, you have to be right there with me. No hesitation. BRENDAN I got you. MICHAEL (takes a deep breath) Let’s do this. Michael and Brendan walk up to the EXT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE – DAY Michael looks back at Brendan, takes a deep breath, then knocks on the door. There are several seconds of silence until Miguel finally opens the door. He only opens it a few inches and peeks through the opening; the chain lock is still attached to the door. MIGUEL What’s up? MICHAEL We’re here to ummm, buy some drugs. MIGUEL Who sent you? MICHAEL Juan Carlos. Miguel shuts the door for a couple seconds, unlocks it, then opens it up. MIGUEL Come in. Michael and Brendan walk into the house.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE Michael and Brendan stand in the dark living room with Miguel. MIGUEL So, what do you want? MICHAEL I don’t know, we just want to get fucked up, so I guess maybe we’ll take some weed or something? BRENDAN Yeah, we just want to get high, high. Weed, huh? MIGUEL OK, I can do that for you.
MICHAEL (goofily) Awesome, that’s great, because me and my friend really want to get stoned. BRENDAN Yeah and hopefully it’ll help us hook up with chicks. It is Cancun after all. MIGUEL You’ll have to excuse me for a moment. Most of my associates are busy taking care of other business so I’ll have to get the baggie myself. MICHAEL No problem, take your time. Brendan and Michael start whispering to each other once Miguel walks out of the room. BRENDAN I’m nervous. MICHAEL Me too. BRENDAN When are we going to do this?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Patience. All in good time, when I see an opening. BRENDAN OK because I think this gun is giving me a rash on my waist and, you know, that could end up spreading to my balls. MICHAEL Don’t worry, your balls will be fine. BRENDAN How do you know that? MICHAEL Just shut up Brendan. Miguel comes back holding a baggie. I got your stuff. MIGUEL You got the money?
MICHAEL Ahhh yes, the money, sorry this is the first time I’ve ever bought drugs, but I figured screw it we’re down here in Cancun having fun in the sun, we might as well make it a total party. BRENDAN (awkwardly) Party! MIGUEL OK, well this is the part where you give me the cash and I give you the drugs. MICHAEL Before I give you the cash, can I ask you a question? MIGUEL What. MICHAEL My girlfriend, Amanda, a very cute, young blonde went missing yesterday. (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL (cont’d) We haven’t been able to find her anywhere. I bet guys like you have their ears to the ground around here, you know I bet you hit up the clubs every night. MIGUEL (calmly) I go out. MICHAEL So have you seen a girl like that? MIGUEL Kid, cute blonde girls grow on trees around here, they’re everywhere. MICHAEL That might be true, but did you see a blonde girl get in some trouble last night, maybe someone that was taken advantage of by a guy or a group of guys, maybe someone who was possibly abducted? MIGUEL (shakes his head) No, didn’t see anything like that. Michael stares at him intently for a moment then answers him. MICHAEL OK. Michael sits down at a table in the room to count his money. MIGUEL I hope you find your girl though. Unfortunately there’s some senseless violence going on in this city, I only pray she hasn’t fallen victim to that. MICHAEL Me too.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese As Michael counts his money, he notices a half empty pack of Trident gum sitting on the table. He stares at it until he realizes that it’s Amanda’s gum. Without uttering a word, Michael takes his gun out and shoots Miguel in the leg. Miguel screams out in pain and falls to the ground, he’s grabbing his shot leg and rolling around the floor in agony. Brendan instinctively jumps back in shock. BRENDAN (surprised) What the hell did you do that for? didn’t tell us anything yet.
MICHAEL Don’t worry, I didn’t try to kill him. Michael stands up, grabs the pack of chewing gum and shows it to Brendan. MICHAEL Look, this is Amanda’s pack of gum! BRENDAN Are you sure? MICHAEL Definitely, she gave us all a piece from it yesterday. Michael runs over to Miguel, kneels over him and grabs his shirt. MICHAEL (yells) Where is she? Where’s Amanda! MIGUEL I don’t know what you’re talking about. Michael shoves his gun right in Miguel’s face.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL I’ll blow your fucking head right off. Tell me. Michael looks up at Brendan, who’s just standing off to the side. MICHAEL Brendan, get my back. Shoot anything that enters this room. BRENDAN Gotcha. Brendan takes out his gun, stands right by Michael and does a 360 around the room to make sure no one sneaks up behind them. MICHAEL Tell me where she is dickhead! esta bitch?!?! Donde
MIGUEL OK, OK, I’ll tell you, just don’t kill me. Michael helps Miguel lean up against the wall. MIGUEL They just left with her. MICHAEL Who? MIGUEL My associates. MICHAEL Where are they taking her? MIGUEL They’re driving her to some drop off point. I don’t know where. MICHAEL Why? MIGUEL I don’t know.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael pushes the gun into Miguel’s right cheek. MICHAEL (yells) Why?!?!?! MIGUEL OK, OK, OK, they’re selling her to someone that is transporting her to Thailand. MICHAEL Why Thailand? MIGUEL I don’t know, I think she’s being sold into prostitution or something like that. I don’t know for sure, none of us know for sure, we just care about getting paid. We don’t care about her. Michael punches Miguel in the face. MICHAEL Well I do. BRENDAN How are we going to find her? MICHAEL This guy is going to drive us to them. MIGUEL I’m shot! MICHAEL In only one leg though, you have another one to drive with. MIGUEL I’m going to bleed out though. MICHAEL You won’t if you help us. MIGUEL OK, fine, just help me. MICHAEL Brendan, go to the kitchen and get a towel.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Brendan rushes into the kitchen and comes back a few seconds later with a towel. Michael takes the towel and makes a tunicate with it around Miguel’s leg. MICHAEL You’re lucky I’m pre-med and know how to do this sort of shit. You’re going to help us, right? MIGUEL I don’t know if I can find them though. I don’t know where they went. MICHAEL Don’t worry, I have faith you can figure it out. (pause) You have a cell phone? MIGUEL Si. MICHAEL It’s on you? MIGUEL Si. Michael reaches into Miguel’s pocket and takes his cell phone. MICHAEL You got wheels? MIGUEL Si, it’s in the driveway. MICHAEL Good, let’s go then. Get up! MIGUEL I can’t. MICHAEL Brendan, help me.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Michael and Brendan help Miguel stand up and they walk over to the front door. EXT. – THE RUNDOWN DRUG HOUSE – DAY Brendan walks out of the house first and stands on the lawn to watch the street as Michael helps Miguel out of the house and over to his car. Michael jumps into the passenger seat while Brendan helps Miguel into the driver’s seat. Then Brendan gets into the backseat. INT. – MIGUEL’S CAR Michael sticks his gun into Miguel’s side. MICHAEL Drive. Once they get on the road and start driving, Michael shoves Miguel’s cell phone in his face. MICHAEL Call your boss or whoever it was that took my girl. Find out where they’re going. (pause) No funny business. Miguel dials a number on his cell phone and calls Juan Carlos. MIGUEL Juan Carlos, this is Miguel, we had a little bit of an issue at the house just now. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) What happened? MIGUEL Law enforcement was snooping around. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) Local cops? What are they doing interfering in our business?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MIGUEL No, it was the federal police. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) The federal police? What did they do? MIGUEL Nothing really, just looked around and took off quickly. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) Did they find anything? MIGUEL No, it seemed like they were looking for something specific. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) I’ll get to the bottom of this. MIGUEL They said they were going to come back for another inspection. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) When? MIGUEL They didn’t say. JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) OK, I’ll deal with it. MIGUEL What should I do if they come back? JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) Stall them. MIGUEL For how long? JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) As long as it takes. We’ll be back soon enough. MIGUEL Where are you guys?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS (O.S.) We’re making the delivery at the Port of Yucatan. (pause) Be cool Miguel, I’ll take care of the federal police. Miguel hangs up the phone and looks at Miguel. MIGUEL Port of Yucatan. Michael shoves his gun in Miguel’s side. MICHAEL Take us to the Port of Yucatan then. INT. – WHITE VAN DRIVING ALONG A DESERTED HIGHWAY IN MEXICO The Mexicans are driving quietly along a deserted highway road, there’s very little traffic and there’s barely any buildings around. They are essentially out in the middle of nowhere. Juan Carlos hangs up his phone having just talked to Miguel. Suddenly, Amanda sits up from the back of the van and is finally coming out of her blackout. AMANDA (confused) Where am I? JUAN CARLOS Mexico. AMANDA Where in Mexico? JUAN CARLOS Out in the country. AMANDA I’m supposed to be in Cancun. JUAN CARLOS Your plans changed.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Amanda looks down and realizes she’s tied up with rope. AMANDA Why am I tied up? Who are you guys? Why am I in this van? JUAN CARLOS Paco, the American’s asking too many questions, take care of that. As Paco climbs over the backseat to get to Amanda, she starts yelling, kicking and screaming. She kicks Paco in the face, temporarily stunning him, then she turns around and starts kicking the back door to get out. Paco rubs off the blood coming from his nose. PACO You fucking bitch! Paco grabs her hair and drags her away from the back door, she turns around again and continues kicking away. Paco then grabs her legs to subdue her. PACO I should kick your ass! Amanda continues yelling and screaming, so Paco covers her mouth with his hand to shut her up. Amanda bites down on it so hard that she draws blood. Paco screams and holds his hand while Amanda continues to kick at him. Paco backhands her across the face then looks back at his associates just sitting there. PACO I could use some help here. One of the other Mexicans jumps over the seat to help Paco. JUAN CARLOS I can’t believe Paco needs help fighting one little American bitch. Embarrassing.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese PACO She’s tougher than you think. (to his associate) Here, grab her legs. Paco’s associate grabs Amanda’s legs as Paco puts his arm around her neck to subdue her. She’s still yelling and screaming. Paco takes a needle out of his pocket, grabs her arm and injects her with heroin. Her eyes roll to the back of her head and she falls back passed out and hits the floor with her head. Paco is breathing heavily, trying to catch his breath. JUAN CARLOS Are you done playing around with her? PACO Feisty bitch. JUAN CARLOS Get back up here. Paco climbs back over the seat and sits down along with the other Mexican who helped him. Amanda is left laying in the back passed out while they continue driving along the deserted highway. JUAN CARLOS (looks at the driver) How much time until we’re there? WHITE VAN DRIVER Probably an hour, an hour and ten minutes at the most. Juan Carlos looks at his very expensive watch. Very good. on time. JUAN CARLOS That’ll get us there right
Juan Carlos rolls his window down all the way and sticks his head out to enjoy the wind blowing through his hair.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – MIGUEL’S CAR DRIVING ALONG A DESERTED HIGHWAY Michael still has his gun pointed at Miguel’s side while Brendan has his gun pointed to the back of Miguel’s neck. MICHAEL You’re not dicking us around, are you? If you drive us to the wrong place or you try to stall us, we won’t shoot you, we’ll torture you. We’ll pull over to the side of the road, drag you out to the middle of nowhere, torture you and leave you for dead. Brendan taps Miguel in the head with his gun. BRENDAN Yeah, Dick Cheney is a distant relative of mine, you do know who Dick Cheney is, right? Your worst fucking nightmare to a guy like you. You don’t want to fuck with us or we’ll waterboard your ass. MIGUEL I’m taking you to the place, I swear, I swear. MICHAEL OK, I’m watching you… Michael moves the gun down to Miguel’s crotch. MICHAEL (cont’d) …but one bad move and I’ll blow your balls clean off. MIGUEL What do you think you’ll be able to do if you find them though? MICHAEL (he corrects him) When we find them. MIGUEL Surely you know you’ll be vastly outnumbered. What are you going to do?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL I usually don’t think that far ahead. MIGUEL Your going to be outgunned too. They’re going to look at your little, baby handguns and laugh. They’ll all have automatic weapons on them. You won’t even make it out of the car. MICHAEL Let me and my friend worry about that. BRENDAN (nervously) Yeah, ummm, we should start worrying about that, shouldn’t we Mike? MICHAEL I got it all under control Brendan. (pause) Where is this place anyways? MIGUEL The Port of Yucatan, it’s about an hour fifteen minutes, an hour and a half away. It’s where we usually do our import / exports from. This is the first time we’ve ever done this though. MICHAEL Done what? MIGUEL Exported a human. MICHAEL For your sake you better hope we don’t get there too late. MIGUEL And for your sake too. MICHAEL Can’t this damn car go any faster? MIGUEL I’m driving as fast as I can, any faster and the car will break apart.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese A few tears fall down Michael’s cheeks as he looks out the window and stares at the barren landscape alongside the highway. INT. – WHITE VAN DRIVING ALONG A DESERTED HIGHWAY The Mexicans continue driving along a deserted highway while Amanda is still passed out in the back of the van. VAN DRIVER Juan Carlos, we’re getting a little low on gas. JUAN CARLOS OK, I saw a sign a couple miles back for a gas station up ahead. We’ll re-fuel there and stretch our legs. They continue driving along the highway and it’s only a few seconds until they see the gas station on the horizon. JUAN CARLOS There it is, up ahead. You see it? VAN DRIVER Yeah, I see it. They come up on the gas station, which is in the middle of nowhere with no other buildings around it, and pull off the road. The van pulls up to a gas pump in front of the old schoollooking gas station and kicks up a big cloud of dirt when it stops. JUAN CARLOS (looks at the driver) Fill up the car. (pause) Paco, let’s grab a smoke outside. Juan Carlos turns around and looks at the Mexican who raped Amanda sitting behind him. JUAN CARLOS (cont’d) You stay here and watch over the girl. I don’t want to take any chances.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Everyone in the van, except for Amanda’s rapist sitting in the backseat, gets out. EXT. – GAS STATION ALONG DESERTED HIGHWAY – DAY Juan Carlos lights up a cigarette and helps Paco light his. They both take a long drag and exhale slowly. Juan Carlos leans into the van through the rolled down window and looks at Amanda who is still passed out in the back. JUAN CARLOS Resting like a baby. So beautiful. Paco leans into the van and looks at her as well. PACO So pure too. JUAN CARLOS Not anymore. Paco starts walking towards the gas station, followed by Juan Carlos. JUAN CARLOS Paco, make sure you pick up some water for the girl. I want to make sure she’s hydrated. I don’t want her looking like shit for the cartel, we need top dollar for her. INT. – GAS STATION STORE Juan Carlos and Paco browse through an aisle of the small, rundown, nearly empty gas station store. You can feel the heat and humidity inside as there is only one ceiling fan working and it’s rotating very slowly. JUAN CARLOS Paco, grab some of those cheese doodles over there.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – WHITE VAN Amanda finally regains her consciousness while laying in the back of the van. She just lays there momentarily as she thinks about her options. She feverishly begins trying to free her hands from the ropes while also keeping an eye on the Mexican sitting in front of her, who’s busy reading a magazine. With his head down reading his magazine, Amanda’s rapist speaks to Amanda whom he assumes is still passed out. AMANDA’S RAPIST Damn girl, I wish you were awake so I could tell you how fine you tasted. A good piece of American ass like yourself was exactly what I needed this morning. Amanda finally frees her hands from the rope by being able to loosen the knot and slips out of it. Then she quietly unties the rope around her ankles. She looks at the Mexican sitting in front of her then decides in one motion to suddenly kick open the back door and jump out of the van. The Mexican hears the noise, turns and notices Amanda running out of the van. AMANDA’S RAPIST Damn! He jumps out of the van to chase her. EXT. – GAS STATION – DAY A couple of the Mexicans are loitering around outside the front of the gas station when they see Amanda escape from the van and running down the road. CANCUN CARTEL ASSOCIATE #1 Look, she’s free! VAN DRIVER She’s escaping!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – GAS STATION STORE Paco looks up while walking down an aisle and sees Amanda running down the road. PACO Juan Carlos! Juan Carlos! She’s running away! The girl!
Juan Carlos and Paco drop whatever’s in their hands and rush out of the store. EXT. – GAS STATION - DAY The two run up to the Mexicans standing in front of the gas station. Juan Carlos hits Paco on the arm. JUAN CARLOS You guys chase her down. (hits the van driver on the arm) Let’s take the van. EXT. – ALONGSIDE DESERTED HIGHWAY – DAY Amanda is running as hard and as fast as she can down the side of the road, crying as she runs. She is being chased by three of the Mexicans but she had a good head start on them. She runs out in the middle of the road to flag down an approaching car, waving her arms in the air to get their attention. The car honks it’s horn, swerves to avoid hitting her and continues speeding down the highway. Amanda throws up her arms in frustration and anger. AMANDA What the fuck asshole!?! Amanda, sensing that she’s lost hope again and will be caught, starts crying uncontrollably. Seeing the three Mexicans fast approaching, Amanda turns to continue running down the side of the road.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The van peels out on the dirt in front of the gas station and speeds down the highway towards Amanda. It screeches to a halt right in front of her to cut her off along the side of the road. Juan Carlos jumps out of the van, runs in front of Amanda and sticks his gun right at her forehead. JUAN CARLOS If you weren’t so valuable to me, I’d kill you right now. AMANDA Go ahead, I’m already dead. Juan Carlos simulates shooting her with his gun. JUAN CARLOS Boom! The other three Mexicans catch up to the van. Juan Carlos puts his gun down and grabs Amanda forcibly by the arm, he leads her to Paco who is standing outside the back of the van. JUAN CARLOS Will you watch her this time around? They open the back door; Juan Carlos picks up the rope from the floor and pushes it into Paco’s chest. JUAN CARLOS (cont’d) Oh and learn how to tie a rope. PACO Yes JC. Paco takes Amanda and forces her into the backseat of the van. INT. – WHITE VAN Everyone gets back into the van. Paco pushes Amanda between himself and another associate.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese EXT. – ALONGSIDE DESERTED HIGHWAY - DAY Juan Carlos pauses a second to light a cigarette outside of the van and takes a few relaxing drags from it before leisurely getting back in. INT. – WHITE VAN Once Juan Carlos gets into the van, they drive off and continue down the highway. JUAN CARLOS Paco, give her more heroin and throw her on the floor in the back again. (pause) We need to calm her down. Paco reaches down on the floor and grabs a bag of heroin. Amanda, who is already being restrained by the Mexican sitting on the other side of her, starts yelling and screaming at the prospect of having to do more drugs. PACO Shut her up. The associate manages to cover Amanda’s mouth while continuing to restrain her. Amanda’s eyes grow wide and fearful when she sees Paco preparing the needle. INT. – HOTEL ROOM Julie is pacing back and forth around the hotel room to pass the time since she has nothing else to do. After a few times, she grabs her cell phone and calls Brendan. Hey, it’s me. No, you? JULIE No, nothing. I’m going stir crazy here. Just pacing back and forth waiting. I’m a nervous wreck. JULIE Anything yet? BRENDAN (O.S.)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN (O.S.) I know baby, hang in there. I have a feeling we might find her soon, hopefully. JULIE OK, bye, love you baby. BRENDAN (O.S.) Love you too. Julie hangs up her phone and continues pacing back and forth around the hotel room. INT. – MIGUEL’S CAR DRIVING ALONG A DESERTED HIGHWAY Brendan hangs up his cell phone. MICHAEL Was that Julie? BRENDAN Yeah. MICHAEL Anything? BRENDAN Nope. And she’s getting anxious, very anxious. MICHAEL Aren’t we all. MIGUEL We’re getting close. MICHAEL Almost game time. MIGUEL (grabs his shot leg) You are going to take me to the hospital after this, right? MICHAEL Let’s handle things one at a time, I just want to get my girlfriend back right now.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MIGUEL Come on man! I’m shot! it to get infected!
I don’t want
In anger, Michael sticks his gun at Miguel’s temple. MICHAEL (yells) No, you come on man! You’re only in this situation because your boys stole my girlfriend! Don’t blame me for this shit! BRENDAN Just drive man, drive. MIGUEL OK, don’t shoot! MICHAEL OK, like my boy just said, drive. We’ll get you help after we find my girlfriend. MIGUEL I’m trying. Everyone in the car becomes silent, Michael takes out a piece of gum from Amanda’s pack and starts chewing it as he looks out the window and views the barrenness of the surrounding area. INT. – WHITE VAN DRIVING ALONG A DESERTED HIGHWAY IN MEXICO They continue quietly driving along the deserted highway. Paco looks behind him at Amanda, who’s still laying on the floor in the back. Amanda starts coming out of her blackout and rolls around the floor. PACO Looks like the girl is coming to again. JUAN CARLOS She must be getting used to the heroin. PACO Shall I give her another hit?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS No, we’re almost at the drop point, I want her to witness all of this. PACO Are you sure? JUAN CARLOS Yeah, it’ll be fine. Paco and his associate turn around and lift Amanda up and over the seat. They sit her between the two of them, she’s still pretty disoriented but she’s alert. JUAN CARLOS Welcome back. AMANDA (dazed) Where are you taking me? You’ll see. JUAN CARLOS It’s a surprise.
AMANDA (cries) I just want to go home. (pause) I just want to go home, I just want to go home. (pause) I miss my mommy and daddy. I miss my little brother. She starts crying uncontrollably. Juan Carlos mocks her by looking at Amanda and fake crying. JUAN CARLOS Don’t worry, we’re sending you to a place where you’re going to be very loved. PACO Yeah, you’ll probably be loved 20-30 times a day sometimes. JUAN CARLOS (laughs) That’s the truth. (MORE)
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS (cont’d) (turns around to look at Amanda) Yeah, a nice piece of ass like yourself, you’ll be getting it a lot. That is until your completely torn up, then you’ll just be thrown out, like the gutter whore you are. AMANDA (crying) Why are you doing this to me? JUAN CARLOS It’s business. AMANDA If it’s business then my dad will pay you any ransom you want to get me back, trust me, he will. JUAN CARLOS I don’t doubt that, but our trafficker will pay us more, trust me. Amanda looks helplessly out the window at the ominous surroundings. AMANDA (to herself) Why? Why?
The van continues to drive down the deserted highway; the port can be seen in the distance. VAN DRIVER We’re coming up to the port. JUAN CARLOS I see it. The Mexicans drive in silence as they get closer and closer to the port. EXT. – PORT’S FRONT GATE ENTRANCE - DAY The van drives up to the heavily guarded front entrance of the port. There are SECURITY GUARDS standing at the post holding machine guns.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The van comes to a stop at the gate and a tough-looking security guard approaches the driver’s side. Once he approaches the van, Amanda sits up attentively and starts screaming. Help! Help! Please help! AMANDA I’m being held captive!
The security guard casually looks into the van then at all the Mexicans. Juan Carlos manages to flash a little smirk to him. Amanda, shocked that the security guard is ignoring her, pleads to him again. AMANDA Are you deaf?!? These guys have kidnapped me! Help, please! The security guard continues casually looking into the van, then finally looks at Amanda. PORT SECURITY GUARD Calm down and if you listen to these nice gentleman then maybe you’ll live through this ordeal. Juan Carlos passes an envelope filled with money over to the security guard, who happily accepts it. PORT SECURITY GUARD Thank you. JUAN CARLOS (smiles) Thank you. AMANDA No, no, this can’t be happening!?!? The security guard takes a step back and signals to another guard to raise the gate, once the gate is up he waves the van through. Amanda hopelessly stares at the security guard as the van drives through the gate and past him.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese AMANDA What the hell was that? JUAN CARLOS In Mexico, everyone has their price. Amanda slouches back down and leans up against the side of the van, she’s seemingly given up. EXT. – PORT OF YUCATAN The van drives towards the water where a large cargo ship is docked and a black Escalade is parked in front of it. INT. – MIGUEL’S CAR DRIVING ALONG THE DESERTED HIGHWAY Miguel’s car is approaching the port, which is still far off into the distance. MIGUEL We’re almost to the port. BRENDAN There’s got to be security there, right? MIGUEL Ohh yes, a lot of it, it’s controlled by the Yucatan Cartel. MICHAEL (sarcastically) Ohhh great. MIGUEL But don’t worry, I got a way around it. Just promise you’ll get me to a hospital. MICHAEL I will, I will. Michael stares at Miguel for a few seconds to size him up while he drives. MICHAEL Pull over I need to piss. MIGUEL Now?
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL Yes now. BRENDAN Really? You have to go right now? about losing your focus. MICHAEL (yells) I have to piss now! MIGUEL OK. Miguel pulls the car over to the side of the road. MICHAEL Brendan, stay here and watch him. Michael gets out of the car and walks a few feet away from the car and onto the grass. With his back to the car, he takes a deep breath then turns around, rushes back to the car and fires two shots to Miguel’s head through the open window. Miguel’s head falls forward and hits the steering wheel. Brendan, who gets splattered in the face with Miguel’s blood, immediately jumps back into his seat in shock. BRENDAN Why the hell did you do that?!? Michael opens the passenger side door and starts moving Miguel out of the driver’s seat. MICHAEL You heard it yourself, the port is controlled by the Cartel. We would not have made it through the front gate of the port alive. Trust me. BRENDAN Well how are we going to get in the port? MICHAEL I don’t know, we’ll figure it out. on, help me with him. Come Talk
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese Brendan gets out of the car and helps get Miguel out of the car by pushing him over to Michael. Once Michael has a good hold on him, Brendan moves over to the passenger side of the car and helps pick him up. They carry Miguel about twenty feet off of the road and drop his body in an area of tall grass. BRENDAN We’re just going to leave him out here? MICHAEL We don’t have time to do anything else, I need to find my girlfriend. BRENDAN What if someone finds him? Michael looks up at the sky and sees a few vultures circling overhead. MICHAEL Don’t worry, the vultures will take care of him in no time. Whatever, his boys took my girl, he got what he deserved. Michael and Brendan walk back to the car. INT. – MIGUEL’S CAR The two are shocked to see how much blood is covering the windshield, especially around the driver’s seat area. BRENDAN Holy shit! MICHAEL Look around for a towel or something. The two look around the floor of the car for any sort of towel or blanket, Brendan finally finds one in the back seat and grabs it. BRENDAN Here. MICHAEL You should probably use the towel first.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN (confused) Why?
MICHAEL You have his blood all over your face. Brendan wipes his face with the towel and sees all the blood wiped off from his face. BRENDAN (shocked) Holy Christ! MICHAEL I know. Michael takes the towel and starts wiping the windshield off. The whole towel turns red very quickly as a lot of the blood, but not all of it, is wiped off the windshield. MICHAEL That’s good enough. It’ll have to do. Michael throws the towel in the backseat and drives down the road towards the port. EXT. – PORT OF YUCATAN The white van parks a few feet behind the black Escalade. The Mexicans sit quietly in the van for a few moments until there’s finally movement from the Escalade. Three Mexican guys dressed impeccably in black suits get out of their Escalade and stand facing the van. INT. – WHITE VAN JUAN CARLOS Time to make the drop. Paco, come with me. Juan Carlos and Paco slowly get out of the van and approach the three men. EXT. – PORT OF YUCATAN The three men from the rival cartel stand firm in front of Juan Carlos and Paco.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese JUAN CARLOS Gentlemen, good afternoon. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER Juan Carlos. You got the girl? JUAN CARLOS So much for small talk. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER I don’t want to be out here longer than I have to. This port is dirty, and disgusting; nothing like my hacienda in the hills filled with my harem of Brazilian bombshells. JUAN CARLOS Well, without further ado, let me introduce you to our product. Juan Carlos turns around and signals to his associates in the van. With the signal, two associates drag Amanda out of the van and forcibly pull her over to Juan Carlos and Paco. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER (looks Amanda up and down) Very nice…veeery nice. (pause) Juan Carlos, I think this could be the start of something special between our two cartels. JUAN CARLOS I know it will be, we have an endless supply of these blonde beauties in Cancun. EXT. – ROAD LEADING TO THE YUCATAN PORT – DAY Michael is speeding down the highway towards the port when he suddenly veers off the road and heads towards a fence that surrounds the perimeter of the port. Michael jumps out of the car and runs to the fence with Brendan trailing behind him. He sees a lone cargo ship sitting at a dock in the distance and points it out to Brendan.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese MICHAEL They must be transporting her out in that cargo ship. It’s the only one I can see. BRENDAN Do you see Amanda? Michael looks hard around the port. MICHAEL No, I don’t. I see a couple cars close to the ship though, she must be in one of them. BRENDAN So what now? Michael looks around and sees a military-style Humvee pull over to the side of the road inside the port. The DRIVER gets out and walks to the back of the Humvee to check the tires. MICHAEL We’ll take them by surprise. Michael scales the fence and jumps over it onto the port property. Brendan is caught off guard but quickly follows Michael by jumping the fence as well. EXT. – PORT OF YUCATAN ROAD CLOSE TO THE FENCE The two guys run over to the Humvee; Michael gets into the driver’s seat and Brendan gets in the passenger’s side. Michael peels out leaving the Humvee driver literally in the dust. Hey! HUMVEE DRIVER Come back here!
The driver starts chasing the Humvee for a few feet but quickly realizes that he can’t catch it, so he just chucks his wrench in its general direction.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese INT. – HUMVEE Michael is speeding towards the cargo ship, which is still off in the distance. BRENDAN (points) There she is, look! MICHAEL I see her. BY THE CARGO SHIP The two rival cartel groups are finishing up their deal for Amanda by the cargo ship. One of the rival cartel members grabs a briefcase from the trunk of the black Escalade and brings it to Juan Carlos. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER And to kick start our relationship, here’s your payment. Juan Carlos takes the briefcase. JUAN CARLOS Good doing business with you. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER When can I expect the next drop? JUAN CARLOS Next week, same time. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER Excellent. JUAN CARLOS She’s all yours. Paco hands Amanda over to the cartel leader as Juan Carlos walks back to the van. No, no, no! AMANDA Please no!
Amanda tries to resist as best she can – flailing her arms, kicking her feet – but to no avail. A few of the cartel’s
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese goons restrain her and start leading her towards the cargo ship. She tries her best to continue resisting so one of the guys just picks her up by the waist and carries her. INT. – WHITE VAN Juan Carlos and all of his associates get into the van. JUAN CARLOS Let’s head back to Cancun. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, the van is struck in the side by the speeding Humvee being driven by Michael. INT. – HUMVEE Michael steps on the gas as hard as he can. MICHAEL Take that assholes! INT. – WHITE VAN The van is being crushed and moved across the road until it’s smashed against a wall. Juan Carlos and everyone else in the van is bruised and injured. Get out! JUAN CARLOS Get out! Get him!
Juan Carlos’ door is right against the wall so he can’t get out; the van driver tries to open his door but it’s jammed. I can’t! VAN DRIVER It’s stuck!
EXT. – PORT OF YUCATAN Michael puts the Humvee in reverse and aims for the group of cartel members leading Amanda to the ship. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER Quick, get the guns!
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese The cartel associates scramble to get their guns from the black Escalade. Michael slams his foot down on the gas and speeds right towards the three guys holding Amanda. Michael hits one of the goons head on; the guy goes flying in the air, lands on the windshield and falls off the hood and onto the ground. The Humvee comes to a screeching halt in front of Amanda and the other two goons. The two guys are in shocked and attend to their associate who just got hit, leaving Amanda standing by herself for a moment. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER What are you doing fools?!? Get the girl! Brendan opens the door to the Humvee, which is now only a few feet away from Amanda. Come on! Get in! Amanda is in shock and isn’t sure what’s going on so Brendan grabs Amanda’s arm, pulls her into the Humvee and sits her between Michael and himself. Once she’s in the vehicle, Michael speeds off down the road. YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER In the car! In the car! The cartel leader and a few of his associates jump into the Black Escalade and speed off to follow them. Michael speeds down the road in the port, heading to the heavily-guarded front gate. INT. - HUMVEE Brendan notices the black Escalade catching up to them in his rear view mirror. BRENDAN Come on! MICHAEL
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese BRENDAN Hurry up Mike, the Escalade is catching up to us. MICHAEL Well we got all sorts of problems now don’t we? We’re coming up on the front gate with all those guards and their pretty little machine guns. BRENDAN What are we going to do? MICHAEL Hang on! Michael speeds towards the gate. EXT. – PORT OF YUCATAN FRONT GATE The GUARDS take their positions in front of the gate and start shooting towards the Humvee. Not slowing down, the Humvee speeds right for the gate. The guards scramble to get out of the way once they realize the Humvee isn’t stopping. The Humvee crashes right through the front gate and speeds onto the highway. The force of the crash knocks over a huge wooden pole that was standing by the gate. The pole falls down across the gate, blocking the exit. The black Escalade screeches to a stop in front of the pole; they’re blocked from leaving the port. The cartel leader jumps out and hits the hood of his car in frustration. Damn it! YUCATAN CARTEL LEADER We lost the American girl!
The guards jump over the pole and run onto the highway to continue shooting at the Humvee, but it is already far down the road.
“Spring Break” Original Screenplay by Jason Wiese EXT. – DESERTED HIGHWAY - DAY Michael is speeding down the highway in the Humvee. MICHAEL Are they following us? Brendan looks in his rear view mirror and sees the port far away in the distance. He can also barely see the guards shooting at them anymore. BRENDAN No, we’re good, no one’s following us. We’re safe. Michael continues driving down the highway as all three of them just sit there silently and stone-faced. Finally after a few moments Amanda speaks up. AMANDA Can we go home now? Michael gently holds Amanda’s hand as he drives. DISSOLVE TO BLACK INT. – AIRPLANE Michael and Amanda are sitting in a row on a packed airplane heading back to the U.S. with Julie and Brendan sitting behind them. FEMALE FLIGHT ATTENDANT (O.S.) To all passengers we will be landing in Chicago in approximately 20 minutes, at this time please take your seats and bring both your seatbacks and tray tables to their upright and locked position and stow away all your electronic devices. We hope you all enjoyed your stay in Cancun, now sadly it’s back to reality for everyone. Having gone through hell, all four of them just sit there in silence with blank expressions on their faces.
