Like any holiday, it is episodic and suffers from repetition but this is gag-for-gag the funniest film of the summer and a fitting end to a much-loved series. So long boys, it's been great to know you.

Anyone who doesn't already know and care a little about these characters might find the movie a bit thin.

They could have called it British Pie, but this TV sitcom spin-off updates the teen summer holiday formula surprisingly entertainingly, considering it doesn't subvert it one iota.

Variety
Brit sitcom The Inbetweeners, which tracked the travails of four male misfits in their last years at high school, makes a satisfying leap to the bigscreen in summer holiday adventure The Inbetweeners Movie.

Village Voice
Britishly, the movie has a knack for inflating little sap bubbles as if mostly for the joy of popping them.

Affection for the characters will bring fans in. But many will leave wishing the makers of one of the most enjoyable programmes of recent years had left well enough alone.

Even the show's disciples may feel like they've been cheated.

Slant Magazine
Oh, the hilarious awkwardness of placing privileged white kids in a place where they don't belong.

After much fumbling, the snicks and giggles of adolescence grow wearying yet again.

If nothing else, The Inbetweeners Movie earns itself a footnote in any comprehensive history of local movie exhibition. This has got to be the first time a wedgie has been inflicted onscreen at the Kendall.
