Review: ‘The Inbetweeners Movie’

By  |  0 Comments

The Inbetweeners did pretty well on the telly, drawing an audience that appreciated seeing the troubles of youth coming of age, akin to Skins but perhaps not so dirty/dirty. But where Skins tried too hard at times to appear too cool for school, the characters on The Inbetweeners have always been okay with not taking themselves so seriously.

Anyway, so popular has the TV series been, that a movie has come to fruition, aptly titled, well, The Inbetweeners Movie. In it, the four main characters of Will (Simon Bird), Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Neil (Blake Harrison) bid high school goodbye forever, and venture off on their first vacation together.

But their holiday in Crete is no picnic; rather a chaotic ride from the get-go. From disastrous accommodation, to much heartache on Simon’s behalf, to Jay falling asleep in an ants nest, it’s a comi-tragic coming-of-age flick where four boys become men. Or at least try to. Of course getting laid is a priority among the group.

 

 

‘The Inbetweeners Movie’ is out on Blu-ray and DVD through Roadshow Home Entertainment.
