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
All three of the girls from "Drifters" (2013) appear in this movie, two as girls in a club and one as Neil's girlfriend. See more »
When Simon and Carli are on the Boat Carli's hair changes form shot to shot. When the camera is showing her face some hair is down her back, but when it shows her back it is all down her front. See more »
Painfully puerile but not in the good and funny way that the TV series was.
My header says it all, but IMDb want a whole ten lines, maybe if I just go 'AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!' it will help to fill the space?! I found this film so awful I left before the end, the 'jokes' weren't that funny, and were mostly of a visual and totally predictable nature; including a rehash of the 'disabled kids on a roller-coaster' joke, which was a classic TV moment, just like Del Boy 'playing it cool', only this time it was by a hotel pool, and not that funny - yet it was the 'funniest'(?) moment that I saw. The casting had every middle class wannabe that wants to go to RADA in there, which constantly annoyed me, not even 'The Queen' talks like that anymore. If you've ever done an 18-30 holiday you'll know there's very little 'posh totty', just plenty of 'northern tarts' with their boobs hanging out off their face's on 'E', while Cockney lads pour spirits down their throat in the hope of a quickie if they get them drunk enough. This 'movie' tried to emulate that 'culture' a wee bit, but no where near well enough. Even the dance tunes in the bars weren't a touch on the real thing, another thing that annoyed me no end, they were mostly just cheesy pop which no self respecting DJ would play - in fact everything about this annoyed me to the point of wanting to start an FB campaign to demand my money back, however I decided it would be a waste of energy and I'd already wasted enough going to the flix in the first place. How could this have been so bad when the TV series was so good? I'm flummoxed. Nuff said, watch it at your peril and remember that it's time you'll never get back.
