Lacking exposition or any real emotional punch, THE GIVER is brisk and unfulfilling, never reaching the potential of its hefty ideas. While a visual delight - through its mixture of grayscale and colour film - everything else under its skin is bland and tepid.
A brand of humour built around awkwardness and teenage factions, without the laughs. While this brand has worked in the past for this series, it seems that while the age of the lads of THE INBETWEENERS series increases, their associated level of humour declines. THE INBETWEENERS 2 brings nothing new, but instead holds a heightened series of cringe-worthy social interactions and rancid clutches at gags.
Beginning with a riff on the nature of sequels and following with (another) reinvention in its series - MUPPETS MOST WANTED brings a fun silliness and sly irreverence that only this cast of felt characters can deliver.
