Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens Shed Good Girl Image For Racy Comedy

It's the controversial new movie about young girls going wild on spring break, committing crimes, doing drugs and having sex.

The most shocking thing of all about Spring Breakers is the cast.

Selena Gomez, best known for her role as an innocent kid on the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place and Vanessa Hudgens, who shot to fame in Disney's High School Musical, both star in the upcoming film.

Lacey Rose, senior TV writer for The Hollywood Reporter said, “It does feel like Disney girls gone wild, clearly a transitional movie for Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens."

Spring Breakers also stars Ashley Benson, who's plugging the R-rated movie on the cover of Seventeen magazine and that's got everyone on The View upset.

Sherri Shepherd said, "They target 12-19 year-olds, so you got a large population who can't even see the movie."

Clearly, the actresses knew what they were doing when they took these edgy roles.

Rose said, "This is done as a sign that they we're growing up. You need to see us in a different light. We don't want to be seen as those feel-good Disney stars anymore."

At the South By Southwest Film and Music Festival in Austin, Texas, Selena Gomez stood up for the controversial movie, saying the buzz in Europe is good.

At a Spring Breakers press event, Selena said, "The reaction was really cool, in Toronto too. The first four rows were 18 to 20 year-olds, they were totally into it. I think in Europe they're more liberal."

But will Spring Breakers go over big in America?
