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

Trivia

James Lee Hunt, Sam Sheriff and Tom Wells got picked out of over a thousand applicants to play James' friends. Another guy named Chris, was originally picked, but it was seen as a better option to have three friends instead of four. However, he can be seen as an extra in the club scene which James and his friends feature. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema release was cut to obtain a BBFC 15 certificate. Some crude sexual dialogue was cut and a use of 'cunt' was overdubbed with 'shit'. The DVD release still has these edits but the Blu-ray release waived these cuts with an 18 certificate. See more »

User Reviews

Loved the series, but this really wasn't very good.

Don't get me wrong - I loved The Inbetweeners series, which packed a freshness and sparkle that far outshone many of the pallid comedic offerings of the late noughties. In all accounts, sadly, I feel the film failed to capture the magic of the show.

The movie plot positively throbs with potential - horny teens, a chavvy holiday destination, a pot of money from a dead grandparent. What could go wrong? Sadly the characters proved utterly skin-deep, the jokes were sparse and predictable, and the finale an embarrassment with the characters' half-baked romances.

The television series were a warm and funny reflection on the trials of Brit adolescence. This film provides a few banal little holiday vignettes and a poo joke. Disappointing.
