Review of "The Inbetweeners Movie (DVD)"
The Inbetweeners The Movie is based on the British comedy show ‘The Inbetweeners’ (which ran for three series). The movie was released in the United Kingdom in 2011. The DVD is currently available to buy from Amazon for a price of £5.00 which I think is good value for money.~ * The Plot (as it appears on Amazon.co.uk) * ~
Will (Simon Bird), Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Neil (Blake Harrison), have finished school forever and are off on their first lads holiday. They’re looking forward to two weeks in Malia with no parents, no teachers and little chance with the ladies. From disastrous holiday accommodation, to Simon’s heartache, to Neil’s spectacular dancing, to Jay falling asleep in an ants nest, it’s a real coming-of-age film - where four boys become men…or at least try to. And with the chance of holiday romance the boys pull out of all stop.I think that the plot is quite interesting as it is something that everyone can relate to and you just know that everything is just not going to go to plan which makes it even funnier. The movie is good; I mean I wouldn’t say that it is the best movie I have ever seen, but it is entertaining and does make an enjoyable watch. It is a great ‘cheer-me-up’ movie, although I did think that it was a bit sad knowing that this is the end of The Inbetweeners….hopefully they will reunite.
The characters in this movie are so funny. The movie focuses on the four main characters in the series; Jay, Will, Simon and Neil. Each character is individual although there is a part of them which I think everyone can relate to. It’s hard to pick a favourite character as there are different ‘parts’ of each character that I like. In this movie, it was interesting to see how the boys change slightly. For example, it was interesting to see Jay become quite sensitive, Neil a hit with the ladies, Simon finally come to his senses and Will suddenly become cool.The humour in the movie as with the series is very crude; expect lots of bad language and ‘rudeness’ so if you like this kind of humour then great, if not I would avoid it especially if you are easily offended. The movie is 15 which means that if you are under fifteen, then this movie is not for you.
When thinking about the movie and the series….it’s quite clear which is the best. Whilst I enjoyed this movie and found it highly entertaining, I don’t think that it is as good as the series. Each episode in the series is around 30 minutes long and so the humour is quick witted and the plots are fast paced. However, the movie seems to have the same content as the series, yet it just doesn’t work as well as the series; the content of the movie would be great in an episode but as a movie…it just seems a bit like a ‘stretched-out’ episode. Perhaps rather than make a movie of their one week holiday, perhaps they could have done a series on the boys going away for the summer to ‘work abroad’ or something similar. I do think that this movie is very short at an hour and a half- it seems to be over and done with in no time.All in all I would recommend this movie, especially if you like The Inbetweeners. I don’t think that it is necessary to have seen The Inbetweeners series in order the ‘get’ the movie. It may help you understand the characters better if you have seen the series first though. One thing I will say is that if you see the movie without watching the series then you may think ‘ah this isn’t that great’, but for someone like me who has seen the series, I was mainly interested in the movie just to see what happened to the characters we have all become to love after watching the series.
Thanks for reading!

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>
