The Inbetweeners Movie
‘I stopped believing in God when I realized it was only dog spelt backwards’
The Inbetweeners Movie follows on from the series as four ‘misfits’ Jay (James Buckley), Neil (Blake Harrison), Will (Simon Bird) and Simon (Joe Thomas) finally leave sixth form and embark on a ‘lads’ holiday to Crete and get up to their usual michevous adventures when they are let out into the big world.
I am a rather big fan of the series, which unfortunately ended after 3 series back in 2010, yet the movie shows the reluctance to fulfill Inbetweeners fans for another hour and a half, although it is more of a reclusive movie because it is probably one that only fans of the series would like to some degree, or maybe they would only like the series. It safely carries on from their lives after sixth form, but there was something missing from the conversion between the series and the movie.
If you have seen it, my favourite scene is the ‘We Speak No Americano’ dance off, but you either like the series or the film, or both. The boys are probably the most realistic teenagers ever without them looking one dimensional, and it is mostly told from the mind and eyes of a group of eighteen year old boys.
