The exploits of four friends, who are socially only marginally above what one of them calls "the freaks", are presented as they grow from their late teen years into adults and as they go on... See full summary »
As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
Exceptional London cop Nicholas Angel is involuntarily transferred to a quaint English village and paired with a witless new partner. While on the beat, Nicholas suspects a sinister conspiracy is afoot with the residents.
Best friends Will McKenzie, Simon Cooper, Jay Cartwright and Neil Sutherland - who are not among the social outcasts, but also not cool enough to hang out with the cool kids who they aspire to be - have just graduated from their suburban London high school. Simon has finally been able to get Carli D'Amato, who he has been in love with since they were children, to be his girlfriend. Largely because they will be going away to different schools in the fall, Carli breaks up with him. To get Simon's singularly focused mind off Carli, his three best mates decide to take him on vacation for two weeks to get some sun, sand and girls before they move onto the next chapter of their lives in the fall. Neil makes the decision for them to go to Malia on the isle of Crete, a popular summer tourist destination for many a Brit.

When the boys arrive at the check-in desk, the lady asks: "Malia flight?". Malia is a small town just outside Heraklion. There is no airport in Malia. All international flights to Crete go to Heraklion airport. See more »
This isn't The Dead Poets Society and I am not that bloke on bbc2 keeps getting kids to sing in choirs. I especially don't want to hear how well you are settling down at uni or how much growing up you have done in the past 12 months. At best I am ambivalent towards most of you, but some of you I actively dislike, for no other reason than your poor personal hygiene or your irritating personalities. I hope I have made myself clear on this point and in case any of you think I am joking, I am not. ...

I was an instant fan of the first Inbetweeners TV series. But the sit com was always going to have a short shelf life due to its restrictive setting.
There was barely enough room for manoeuvre to make the three TV series and a film, although conceptually sound, was never going to be a hit.
There are only so many times you can get away with telling the same old 'mum' jokes before they get tired and tedious.
The characters recognise this and begin to comprehend they are growing up and moving on into adulthood. This gives the film a touching, sentimental feel. The movie is a definite farewell, right from the start you feel like the characters are swimming out to sea and not leaving anything for the return.
The film is moderately funny, sometimes the old comedy magic from the first series sparks but can't quite ignite.
Expect nob gags and vagina references aplenty.
It is worth watching just to get closure on the franchise and to know that the characters are off living their lives at college etc. but are no longer inbetween.
