Storyline

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. Jay, with inheritance money in hand, believes he can have the pick of any girl he wants. Neil has to decide what constitutes not cheating on his girlfriend, Nicole. Will wants... Written by Huggo

Will, Simon, Jay and Neil are all here as the gang head out to Malia for a lads holiday after leaving school. It is to be the holiday of a life time, but in Inbetweeners style nothing goes to plan.

And that's where the similarities with the hilarious TV show end. As sadly the film fails to capture the magic of the show. The movie plot positively throbs with potential. From horny teens, a holiday destination, and Jay having money from a dead grandparent. What could go wrong?? It simply never dips in to the potential.

I'll start with Jay, some of the funniest lines in the TV show come from him. Here for some reason he is very watered down, and barely lies or exaggerates at all. his one lie "I've swam further UNDER water" was one of the two times I actually laughed. There was soooo much potential for the character of Jay in this situation, and it's never explored and we miss it!! Next up Simon is so ridiculously annoying and naive (who gives up ALL of their clothes) as he pines for Carli I wanted to punch him never mind Jay!As for punching someone the character of the Rep that Carli was smitten with was vile and in no way got the sort of comeuppance that he deserved. Will was a duller version of his TV version self and was subject to the old suntan lotion gag that was old, when it was used in "Police Academy V" the only one close to his TV version was Neil, and him leading the boys minus Jay on a dance to attract the attention of 4 girls was the second time I laughed.

Now on to the 4 girls, all OK, but clichéd. But it is ridiculous that all 4 four girls, hooked up with the 4 boys for a holiday romance, and it is NOT in keeping with Inbetweeners spirit. The show is funny watching them try and fail. for all four to succeed just seemed like a "lets give them all an American Pie-esque happy ending" situation.

All it all a massive let down, and this will not find it's way into my DVD collection unlike the TV show.
