Spring Breakers is a year old Saturday – hardly ready for the kind of "We're so old" nostalgizing that greets every movie anniversary these days.
But still, in the 12 months since encountering the Day-Glo rush of its first trailers, our affection for Harmony Korine's simultaneous celebration and critique of mindless hedonism has grown with each subsequent viewing.
In honor of the anniversary of Faith, Cotty, Candy and Brit's life-changing vacation, we're looking back at four memorable moments from the film. As James Franco's Alien says: "Bikinis and big booties, y'all – that's what life is about."

James Franco can add one more item to his already impressive resume.
The actor will star in a Ford Fusion Hybrid commercial – which also features actor Rob Riggle – during this Sunday's Super Bowl, and it's set to air between the coin toss and kickoff.
"Super Bowl commercials are such a big thing now, they're almost mini-movies. So it sounded like it could be fun, and it was," Franco tells PEOPLE.

From gossip to literature.
Former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester will make her Broadway debut next year as a beautiful temptress in the revival of Of Mice and Men.
Producers said Monday that Meester will join James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in the story about an unlikely friendship between two migrant field workers in California during the Great Depression.
The story by John Steinbeck centers on big-dreaming George and the mentally challenged Lennie. Meester, who starred in the film Country Strong, will play the wife of a ranch boss who fascinates Lennie – "she's purty," he tells his friend – and endangers their fates.

Aron Ralston, who gained widespread attention when he cut off his forearm to free himself after becoming trapped by a dislodged boulder in a Utah canyon, has been arrested in Denver over allegations of domestic violence after a fight with his girlfriend, police say.
Ralston and Vita Shannon, both 38, were each booked Sunday on charges of assault and "wrongs to minors."
Police documents allege Shannon struck Ralston twice in the back of the head with her fists and that he shoved her as she was leaving her apartment.
The wrongs-to-minors charge is used when children are present during an incident but not necessarily hurt. Police documents say the couple's 8-week-old child was present at the time of the altercation but apparently suffered no harm.
