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

The audience should be interested in the antics of these idiots ... why, exactly?

It's a refreshing rebuke to the countless Brit period dramas and gangster pics we're known for, but for the closure it seems to provide, it should be funnier and develop its characters more. Big fans will probably still enjoy it enough though.

It manages to spectacularly abandon all its small-screen smarts and charm.

Oh, the hilarious awkwardness of placing privileged white kids in a place where they don't belong.

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.

Crude slapstick and off-colour humour accompany four 18 year-old London lads as they head for Crete in search of girls. Based on the TV sit-com of the same name, everyone but fans will find this quickly tiresome.

Basically just another bawdy spring break movie - with an accent.

The movie is rated MA15+ suggesting it's suitable only for those over 15, but the maturity level required is much less

The snicks and giggles of adolescence grow wearying yet again, despite a few witty bits, none of which are in McKenzie's intrusive narration.

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 ...

I'm disappointed that they turned my horny-teen comedy into a gross-out comedy.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "The Inbetweeners" doesn't go far enough into its insinuated territory of sticky gross-out humor. "The Inbetweeners" keeps too much in the middle of the road.

The characters are mostly stupid and rather thinly drawn.

Who knew that when the "Porky's" movies (finally) died, they went to England?

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

The cast is fairly congenial, and this picture is kind of fun, if you don't mind the exported recycling of American Pie and Judd Apatow.

Affection for the characters will bring fans in. But many will leave wishing the makers of one of the most enjoyable programmes of recent years had left well enough alone.

One doesn't require a Bergman or even a Fellini, it's simply that this film takes every easy way out there is for its laughs.
