Cinema rule #34:
If a film has the word “Movie” in the title, it’s going to be bad.
Fortunately, The Inbetweeners Movie doesn’t fall under rule #34.
Jay, Will, Simon and Neil are off to Malia, getting away from their troubles and celebrating leaving Rudge Park Comprehensive school. Arriving at their hotel for the week, the lads find the owner fishing a dead dog out of the well and it soon becomes clear that their accommodation hasn’t won many AA stars. Still, the boys decide to make the most of it and go hit the local bars. It’s not long before they meet some ladies having a girly holiday and their prospects start to look up.
If you’re a fan of the TV series, you can basically expect an extended TV episode and on the whole, that works just fine. However, when The Inbetweeners Movie is crude, it’s very crude and when it’s funny, it’s very funny indeed. If you’re not a fan of this type of humour, don’t even bother, but if you’re happy to never to be able to look at wafer thin ham in the same way again – well, The Inbetweeners Movie is for you.
Random fact: The Inbetweeners Movie was called “Sex on the Beach” in Germany.
