Movie Info

Four geeky high school friends set out on a wild sun and booze-filled vacation in The Inbetweeners Movie, the hilarious British breakout hit finally reaching American shores. Packed with outrageous sexual shenanigans, out-of-control party antics and cheekily rude humor in the tradition of American Pie, the film follows a quartet of sex-obsessed nerds to a notorious Mediterranean hotspot as they try to break their lifelong losing streak with the ladies. -- (C) Official Site

Plenty of funny bits, and apart from some fairly appalling underlying sexism -- guys, screw up all you like, the movie says, because the nice, pretty girls will forgive any transgression -- it actually attempts to have heart as well.

You may not be proud of it, but you'll probably find something to laugh at in "The Inbetweeners Movie."

The movie is apparently the most popular British comedy in history. I guarantee that its success has nothing to do with the quality of the actual movie ...

The Inbetweeners Movie goes where plenty of sex comedies have gone before, but its rambunctious personality makes it worth the trip.

As predictably sophomoric as "The Inbetweeners" can be, it's the ways you stay ahead of it that amplify the laughs. No romantic or sentimental moment is too tender to undercut.

The characters are mostly stupid and rather thinly drawn.

There really isn't enough material here for a feature, with some scattered big laughs and exotic scenery not enough to compensate for a thin and episodic script.

You've seen all this teenage male awkwardness, sexual misadventures and body fluids in so damn many American movies that British accents don't make them any fresher.

If you found the show hysterical, chances are good that you'll be laughing like a loon throughout the movie as well.

A torturous motion picture experience that I don't recommend to anybody more mature than the protagonists.

While I'm sure the effort has proven popular with the faithful, newcomers shouldn't have trouble catching up with the shenanigans, which are largely amusing and enjoyably obvious.

Audience Reviews for The Inbetweeners

So back in 2008 the UK was introduced to yet another foul-mouthed rude and disgusting comedy show...and it was more British brilliance. Easily the most semi offensive, filthy and sexually profanity ridden show to hit our screens since Bottom, and that was tame in comparison. The whole premise is basically centred around childish immature toilet humour, typical boyish low brow school smut that most every British male can relate to because they probably grew up doing and saying the same things.

The TV show revolved around four young boys struggling through their school years which included various stereotypical themes which, again, many will relate too. The most common of these was the attempt and failure of many many sexual encounters with girls from their school or where ever, these sexual escapades made up the bulk of the shows plots. Yes it sounds like a wholly cliched and unoriginal but that doesn't deter us Brits when it comes to embarrassing sexual innuendos and smut.

This movie carries on from where the TV show left off after the final third series which we all thought had finished for good. The lads are still mates and they're off on their holidays to sunny Malia, Crete, Greece. That is basically the plot right there, you don't really need to know anything about the TV show or what happened, you can quite easily watch this on its own and get the drift perfectly. There might be the odd moment which you might not get if you haven't watched the TV show but generally you should be fine.

If ever there was a bad advert on a mass scale for Brits abroad then this has gotta be high on the list. I'm not referring to all Brits of course but mainly the younger binge drinking generation that we all know and loathe these days. Yep its the stereotypical vision of modern day British youths abroad getting blind drunk, having or hunting for guilt free animalistic sex, drugs, vomit, feces and lots of football shirts. Its exactly what you'd expect as a British viewer which is both hilarious at times and utterly shameful at others, we all know what goes down in these types of places, amazed it wasn't filmed in Magaluf (probably too extreme).

Whilst the TV show seems anarchic and unpredictable this film really feels like a let down in my eyes. Gone are the fresh wild obnoxious antics...instead replaced with every known cliche from the book of cliches, besides that we saw all this before with 'Kevin and Perry Go Large'. The one that has been implanted into this story is emotion and some solid character development. The guys do seems to grow as we see them fall out, make up and meet the girls of their dreams...naturally not being the type of girls they expected. Although again its kinda obvious, 'Jay' gets a tubby bird and starts to show signs of maturing, 'Will' get a hot blonde, 'Simon' finally moves on from 'Carly' with a brunette and 'Neil' finds a slightly ditzy girl the same height as himself.

Generally I found this movie kinda depressing actually, there is tonnes of negativity with the guys trying to find girls, trying to be popular and trying to fit in. There are of course the highs but I found there to be more lows really, lows and lots of cringeworthy behaviour which somehow didn't seem as funny as the TV show. Most of the laughs tend to be the most obvious and over used cliches such as the shitty hotel, aging desperate women dressed in unflattering attire, too much booze with obligatory vomiting, hot babes, buff jocks and the old gag of the rude doodle burnt into burnt into your back. I guess the old school location of...errr their school works the best, prime example being the fantastic small sequence with Greg Davies as 'Mr Gilbert' the Headmaster giving a rousing speech at the start. Its reasonable fun in places but on the whole it can't live up to the original show despite the usual good performances from the main cast.

"I love the T.V. show. Big fan. That being said, the film wasn't as brilliant as the show. The first half of the movie and the middle is a lot of fun, but near the ending it starts to lose some steam. I still found it to be funny, awkward, grosse, and entertaining to say the least. These four boys really have no shame. As a viewer, that is awesome. They really let anything and everything happen to them and own it. If you enjoy the show, there is no way you can be disappointed with the movie."

For someone who has not seen a single episode of the TV series, I found this very funny. Although the humour is mainly for teenage/young adults, there is plenty of laughs for its target audience. While it is the finale to the series, this gave me a very good idea of what humour I have missed out on.

I am completely obsessed with the show, but this movie was a little lack luster and kinda gross. I can't be mad at the boys though, because how many movies are as good as the show they were adapted from?!
