The Inbetweeners Movie (2011) - ★ ★ ★ ★
If there ever was a film to bring British independent cinema to the mass-market in the last ten years, then this was it. The Inbetweeners Movie is the end to a three-year adventure for everyone’s favourite secondary school oddballs: Will, Simon, Jay and Neil. The plot of the film is designed to facilitate for the short and sharp nature of the television series that served it so well, and as such is split into several clearly defined acts with a total runtime of only 97 minutes.
Characters from the past three years of Inbetweeners; including Mr Gilbert, Carli, the parents and the classmates, all feature to some extent, bridging the gap between pastures old and new as the boys leave temperate England for sunny and rowdy Crete. The blend of characters means that while fans of Inbetweeners are able to understand the relevance of certain events, newcomers are not at a disadvantage on the whole.
But enough about premise, let’s get on to the important stuff. First and foremost, this film is laugh-out-loud funny. Just like the original series, there is boyish humour from the outset and during several of my laughing fits I can remember wondering whether I had ever laughed that much in a cinema before. Upon recollection, I probably hadn’t.
