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 »
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
James Buckley who played Jay was 23 when the film was shot. He was the youngest of the quartet who portrayed school leavers aged 18. See more »
In the first scene in Marco's, after Jay says "Feed the pony", Neil lifts his right arm to have a sip of his pint. In the next reverse shot, his right arm has instantly jumped back down to his side where it started. See more »
That's it! Neil, you're right. It may not be paradise, but it's time we started enjoying this place for what it is.
Yes, but it's our shithole! So I say, we get out there, and get royally fucked up on Jay's dead grandad's money!

From being a big fan of The Inbetweeners Show for approximately a year, (I am now 16.) I was really excited about seeing this movie, even though I failed to see it at cinemas, so I had missed out on hearing people's laugh out loud reactions! When I got The DVD and I sat down and watched it, I had myself laughing my ass by saying: "Shihihihihihiiiiit!" each time something funny or stupid would happen! If you have not seen this film yet, I can tell you a bit about it, without giving away too many of the jokes. The film shares the same theme as American Pie And Beavis And Butt-Head Do America, because a group of teenage boys try their very best to loose their virginity when on their holidays! The film offers a lot of laughs, but it gets a little over the top in some places by showing a lot of full frontal male nudity which makes Team America: World Police look like The Simpsons Movie and the jokes eventually wear off after the first hour! Still a very funny, recommended movie! (Just do not show it to your kids!)
Overall Rating: 8/10!
