Movie Info

When Nick's (Joe Thomas) girlfriend dumps him at graduation, he has a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university. He's convinced his life is over, but his best mate Shane (Hammed Animashaun) has the perfect solution: three days at an epic music festival. With the help of "festival aficionado" and certified oddball Amy (Emmy Award? nominee Claudia O'Doherty), Shane tries to get Nick to embrace the music, the mayhem and the mud.


Critic Reviews for The Festival

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

Not exactly groundbreaking comedy, but Morris clearly knows his youthful audience demographic well, playing on their hang-ups as much as their aspirations.

The Festival's pursuit remains broadly likable, and Morris again backs it up with real comedy nous.

It all feels so disappointingly similar, retelling old jokes, backed by the rather old-fashioned narrative of a man trying to reclaim his ex-girlfriend.

It takes a little while to get going, but once it does The Festival is a funny take on a British summer institution.

Watchable, but unforgivably derivative - was it not a bit early to have a remake of The Inbetweeners Movie?

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The Festival can't get out of the shadow of The Inbetweeners, but it's well worth a watch for all fans of the series.
