If you missed the drugs, guns and teenie bikinis at the movie theater, you can now watch "Spring Breakers" at home.

The indie flick, shot at St. Pete Beach and other locations around Tampa Bay and Sarasota, hits stores on DVD today.

The movie stars James Franco, Ashley Benson and former Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, and follows a group of students who rob a restaurant and use the money to fund a debaucherous spring break trip to Florida.

So sit back at home and see if you can spot the Sunshine Skyway bridge, the marquee for the now-closed Beach Theatre, the Twistee Treat on Gulf Boulevard and other Pinellas County landmarks.

The DVD extras include outtakes from Franco's famous "look at my s---" scene, commentary from director Harmony Korine, a Vice-produced featurette on real-life partying in Florida, and a look at the music used in the film, including St. Petersburg rapper Dangeruss.
