Loaded with laughs for In­be­tween­ers

(Buck­ley) get­ting dis­cov­ered by his mum in a com­pro­mis­ing po­si­tion in­volv­ing ham; and a heartbroken Si­mon (Thomas), in tears af­ter be­ing dumped. As the four wave good­bye to Rudge Park Com­pre­hen­sive, the scene of so much hu­mil­i­a­tion, they de­cide they need a proper lads’ hol­i­day to rein­vent them­selves. Of course, from the mo­ment their pink slo­gan T-shirts are banned fol­low­ing a fan­tas­tic slow mo­tion walk through the air­port, noth­ing goes ac­cord­ing to plan. Their ac­com­mo­da­tion is a hell­hole, they wind up in the sad­dest club on the re­sort strip, get in scrapes, get drunk and then get naked. In short there’s hu­mil­i­a­tion on a reg­u­lar ba­sis – but some­how the chums ac­tu­ally meet some girls. It’s al­ways tricky to ex­pand a TV set-up to the sil­ver screen but the writers, along with the di­rec­tor Ben Palmer, have largely suc­ceeded. Like the se­ries, the film is rude and cringe-in­duc­ing with lots of scenes that will have you laugh­ing out loud and the writers haven’t been afraid to slow the pace down to al­low for the odd poignant mo­ment. If you’re af­ter fun and silli­ness and a re­minder of the per­ils of be­ing young, then you’re sure to en­joy this cel­e­bra­tion of the or­di­nary teenager. FAM­ILY WATCH: Swearing, Sex, No Vi­o­lence

The lads live it up on Greek re­sort.
