THE IN­BE­TWEEN­ERS MOVIE ( MA) ★★★ ■

Stars: Si­mon Bird, James Buck­ley, Blake Har­ri­son, Joe Thomas Di­rec­tor: Ben Palmer Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD TAK­ING your small- screen suc­cess to the big screen is the go- to move for de­funct TV se­ries these days. But if you don’t take the se­ries magic with you, what’s the point? That’s what we have with The In­be­tween­ers Movie, which should have just been a long ver­sion of the fan­tas­ti­cally grubby Bri­tish com­edy but in­stead ends up lack­ing the wit and charm. In it, the four mates have fin­ished their school­ing and head off for an in­ter­na­tional get­away full of drink­ing and hope­fully a bit of ‘‘ ac­tion’’. Though they all meet babes, things don’t ex­actly go smoothly and much of their hol­i­day is spent try­ing not to look like com­plete plonkers in front of them. While it won’t en­cour­age non- fans to check out the se­ries, it is still a bit of a laugh and not a bad way to send off the lov­able losers. Ex­tras: ★★★ ½ The one- hour long mak­ing- of is good stuff, there’s also a fea­turette on what the lads got up to while they were sup­posed to be re­hears­ing, nearly a quar­ter of an hour of deleted scenes, and the same again in bloop­ers plus footage of the London pre­miere of the film.

LOV­ABLE LOSERS: James Buck­ley, Blake Har­ri­son, Joe Thomas and Si­mon Bird.
