The Inbetweeners Movie – Review

Reviewed by Rachel Geeson

Score: 4/5  

In a sold out showing of The Inbetweeners Movie, there was non-stop laughing throughout the film. The film is very funny, very good and very rude.

The boys, Will, Simon, Jay and Neil have finished their exams and have finally left school. After the gang deal with break up’s, interruptive parents and death, they decide to go on holiday to leave their problems behind.

There is a funny moment when Neil gives the boys “Pussay Patrol” T –shirts to wear on holiday, which are pink and have rude nicknames on the back, which are perfectly suited to their personalities. It is a great highlight to the film and has the audience in hysterics.

When the lads arrive in Malia, Crete at their hotel they see their accommodation, which is far from luxury with dead dogs, stains and strange guests. One of my favourite scenes was when the guys had just been tricked into an empty club. Whilst they are waiting at the bar, four girls walk in and sit down on the other side of the dance floor. The boys are try to think about how to get the girls’ attention. Neil suggests they try and get themselves noticed by dancing. So Neil, Simon and Will show the ladies their moves, which made the audience laugh out loud. It’s so awkward and embarrassing yet really funny, especially as the girls invite them over to sit with them, which is absolutely priceless.

imageWhen the boys try to impress girls at the pool, Neil ends up insulting guests and Jay gets into an argument with an irritating teenager and ends up in the pool. The whole scene has both awkward and humorous moments where you don’t know whether to laugh or not.

The lads’ holiday includes having it off with older women, projectile vomiting, sleeping in an ant’s nests, skinny dipping and lots of drinking.

At the end of the day, The Inbetweeners has always been about friendship and amongst the crude jokes and embarrassing circumstances; the film delivers a realistic portrayal of young blokes.

The performances from Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison are just perfect for these characters. The whole cast are very talented and I highly recommend this as a must see movie.
