The Inbetweeners Movie
So The Inbetweeners is the big screen send off for a hit British TV show about four mates at high school – well, at least that what I’m assuming, because I’ve never seen the TV show, but that doesn’t really matter when it comes to The Inbetweeners Movie, because it’s all pretty self explanatory.
Four High School mates decided to go on a summer holiday to Crete, before they all leave to go there separate ways to university and such. The holiday is basically an attempt to get pissed and get laid, but being four totally different high school graduates, with no real world experience, things don’t go their way. At least not to begin with.
Will, Jay, Neil and Simon all come on holiday with more than just their carry on luggage, and this holiday is their coming of age tale, one that is liberally scattered with crude humour, and vulgar language, delivered on a way that only four teenage boys could.
But there is a little more depth than just four lads getting pissed and chasing ‘pussay’ – The Inbtweeners manages to make us cringe with embarisment, as it faithfully portrays in vivid colour, the real awkwardness of being a male teenager. But more than that, The Inbtweeners also manages to hit the nail on the head with it’s observations of Brits abroad.
Add to that some truly laugh out load moments, and you have a rip-roaring film that can hold it’s own with the likes of The Hangover and other sleazy American comedies.
