The Inbetweeners Movie 2

Critics Consensus

The hapless Inbetweeners reunite for another raunchy adventure that will satisfy fans' appetite for laughs, but a downturn in plausibility along with an uptick in mean-spiritedness makes for less fun than their previous exploits.

  • The focus remains firmly on the delusional quartet, confidently drawn and depicted. Things fall away around them, however: the supporting characters are less deftly written, and the female characters are particularly disposable.

  • 'The Inbetweeners 2' is riddled with contempt: for its characters, for its audience and most notably for the entire female gender.

  • Nobody leaves The Inbetweeners 2 a hero, and we love them for it.

  • Like having your brain replaced with a defective version of Urban Dictionary and then being constantly booted in the swingers.

  • "The Inbetweeners 2" happily dissolves ... lofty concerns in giddy gales of hilarity.

  • Morris and Beesley have taken these characters far beyond their origins, yet a large swath of the population will doubtless be reassured to learn they are, still, incorrigible.

Audience Reviews for The Inbetweeners Movie 2

    If you like your films with negative Australian stereotypes, gross-out humor including shit in someone's face or pissing on someone's face and complete disregard, and disrespect, for pretty much every woman the boys come across then I have just the film for you! You may ask yourself that why I gave this film a below average score if I gave the first film a positive review. I assume the logic behind this being that this is more of the same except in another country. There's a saying that goes 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' and I think that's something that this film certainly subscribes to. It's just the law of diminishing returns. Just because a joke is funny once does not mean it'll be funny 10 times in a row. The film has this feeling of 'been there, done that' with one exception and that is the fact that this is a really mean-spirited comedy. To the point that it's honestly to the detriment of the entire experience. As if it wasn't bad enough that this is really just a repeat of the first film. We also have to deal with 'attempts' at humor by demeaning a large group of people. Australians? Check. Women. Check. Transsexuals? Check. Fat people? Check. Look, to me, it wouldn't be so much of a problem if your film had, at least, a little bit of heart and soul. I'm not trying to brand myself as someone who's got such a high moral compass that I find it impossible to enjoy a little crass humor. After all I absolutely loved Borat and this film doesn't even come close to that. I'm not saying Borat had heart, but it was smartly-written satire. What is this film's excuse on relying on such lazily assembled comedy? This is as dudebro a film as you will ever find. It's all about your bros and the hell with relationships as long as you got them. And that would be fine if it didn't seek to completely put down anyone and everyone in its way. Or at least did so in a way that was satirical. But that would be giving this film way too much fucking credit. Say what you will about the first film, but at least, as minute as it may have been, had some heart and soul. It still treated women like crap and like they're sexual conquests for these 4 dipshits to trying and win over and that was nasty. So, what does this film do, it pushes that nastiness up to 11 and includes more groups of people instead of just the women. It's just so fucking lazy honestly. There's no thought put into anything other than gross-out gags. Story? What fucking story? There is nothing to go on here. This is just as bad as Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and A Few Best Men in it feeling like a collection of gross-out skits without an actual story holding it together. I honestly would have no idea which of those three would be the best film. I was gonna give this 2 stars, but I hated it more and more as the review went along, so I guess this would qualify as the 'best' of those films. That's not high praise either. If I was inspired to check out the show after the first film then the sequel definitely made me re-think that. I mean it'd almost be impossible impossible to base a television series around these 4 unlikable assholes and have it last for any length of time. I'm assuming the show HAS to have a lot more personality and heart than this, right? Right???? I really didn't like this movie. Maybe fans of the show will love this, but everyone else can just avoid this and, trust me, you're not gonna regret it. Just a bad movie on all accounts.

    Pointless sequel to a movie test should have been left alone. Loved the series, but these movies aren't so great.

    An unsubtle, amusing, if not slightly disturbing comedy.

    The gang are back and hilarity ensues as always. However the original film is a tad better in terms of running comedy. A lot of this feels stiff towards the end but it is still enjoyable.
