"Inbetweeners Movie - Laugh out loud funny!!"

It was with great trepidation that I approached this film. When someone tries to turn a television series into a film there are usually groans all round as fans prepare themselves for the on-screen slaughtering of their (soon to be ex) favourite show. However, fans of The Inbetweeners have nothing to worry about because this is genuinely one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

Essentially, school's out for Will, Simon, Jay and Neil, and their lives as adults are just beginning. It's been a rough last week of term for all the boys as Jay's grandfather dies, Simon is dumped by Carli and Will discovers that his father has unexpectedly married his much younger mistress. In order to pull his friends out of the depression that they've sunken into, Neil decides to book the boys a holiday to Malia, Crete. So, the boys set out for 'two weeks of sun, sea, booze, minge, fanny and sex and tits and booze and sex', but of course, things don't exactly go to plan.

Personally, I hate it when producers try desperately to hang onto a television show that has run its course. Thankfully, in the case of The Inbetweeners, viewers across Britain were devastated at the end to such a brilliantly funny television series and I think that in itself is a huge part of this movie's success. Almost every single Inbetweeners fan rushed down to the cinema at the end of the summer to see this movie, hoping for anything even vaguely amusing to satiate the withdrawal symptoms that had developed after the end to this series, and they were rewarded. The Inbetweeners Movie is pure class comedy and had me in hysterics from the beginning to the end. I thought that perhaps the jokes would be a bit dry and and a bit of a flop really, especially since the boys have moved away from their usual scene and ventured abroad, but I was proven wrong as this film was just as funny, if not funnier, than the original television series.

The acting was absolutely brilliant - as expected. The cast of The Inbetweeners are absolutely brilliant and are probably what I would call some of Britain's finest young talent. A holiday in Malia really was the perfect place for Jay as it gave him so much opportunity to brag about how much he knows about women and James Buckley captured his character perfectly. Jay probably undergoes the biggest development and change of character and thanks to James Buckley it was a smooth transition and seemed perfectly natural. Simon Bird brought all of Will's sarcasm and wit across the ocean with him to make him the funniest that he's ever been. Blake Harrison's dance skills are now known by all teenagers in Britain as he showcased his brilliant and funny moves across the clubs in Malia. Joe Thomas did not disappoint with his bizarely spiked hair and Simon's pathetic persona. It was nice to see Simon finally grow a pair and stop being a blundering fool. In addition, we saw a different side to all of the boys as they develop throughout the film and finally become men at the end. It was a perfect end to the Inbetweeners, though it's a shame to see it go.


(By the way, if I've counted correctly, I saw a total of three penises in this movie, none of which are particularly attractive so - Beware!)

Review: It has two different gag ratios - the laughter one, and the urge-to-spew one. Both are high. (Daily Telegraph, 2011-11-21)<br><br>[...] this is gag-for-gag the funniest film of the summer and a fitting end to a much-loved series. So long boys, it's been great to know you. (Empire, 2011-11-21)<br><br>He's got a briefcase, a superhot mom, and three new buddies in social purgatory. Definite cult-show potential. (Entertainment Weekly, 2011-11-01)<br><br>Enjoyable, frequently hilarious teen comedy that sticks closely to the winning formula of the TV show and delivers crude sight gags, witty lines and strong, likeable characters, thanks to enjoyable comic performances from the four leads. (ViewLondon, 2011-11-21)<br><br>
