Over-The-Top Adaptation That Still Bears The Classic 'Inbetweeners' Resemblance
Whilst I am a massive fan of the hit TV series, the film adaptation of 'The Inbetweeners' didn't really intrigue me as much. It was still very entertaining and full of humour, most of which will only relate to the more teenage audience, but as an opinion, I think the creators took the opportunity of a film adaptation to create over-the-top and gross scenarios that TV wouldn't allow them to show. I would never say I disliked this film, because that isn't true, despite the sometimes gross and immature scenes, it still bears the classic 'Inbetweeners' resemblance. An enjoyable film overall, but I wish them more luck with the sequel.
