Sundown (Guatdefoc)

If you're going to cast the talented Sara Paxton in your horny-dude comedy and make her character urinate on the dance floor, slip in her own piss and then puke in a guy's mouth, there had better be a damn good reason. Sadly, the only one in evidence seems to be that director Fernando Lebrija couldn't fill an entire movie with homophobia and Mexican stereotypes, so he threw in a little humiliation of women, too. That aside, Sundown plays like Risky Business meets The Hangover, as both are like undergoing lobotomies to a rave soundtrack.

Shot primarily at nice resorts in Puerto Vallarta, meaning the cast and crew probably had a way better time than you will, Sundown centers on a would-be DJ named Logan (Devon Werkheiser), who is encouraged by his repulsive, Joe Francis-wannabe best friend Blake (Sean Marquette) to sneak down to Mexico on Spring Break. (The movie actually gives special thanks to Girls Gone Wild in the end credits, and appears to have either borrowed some of that franchise's footage or piggybacked on a shoot.) Logan finds his crush Lina (Paxton), who had mentioned she'd be there, but trouble ensues when he loses an expensive family Rolex to an impossibly gorgeous and kind hooker (Camilla Belle) and her goofy, wig-wearing Russian pimp (Jordi Mollà).

Werkheiser's easy charisma is the only thing here worth watching; one day, he will do much better. And actual star DJs like Paul Oakenfold and Steve Aoki have inexplicable cameos in between the many, many gags involving cockfights and bare ass.
