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.
