Storyline

Neil, Will and Simon receive an invite from Jay to join him in Australia whilst on his gap year, who promises them it's ''the sex capital of the world''. With their lives now rather dull compared to their hedonistic school days and legendary lads holiday, it's an offer they can't refuse. Once again, they put growing up temporarily on-hold, and embark on a backpacking holiday of a lifetime in an awful car, inspired by Peter Andre's 'Mysterious Girl'. Will soon finds himself battling with the lads to do something cultural, whilst they focus their attention on drinking, girls, and annoying fellow travelers. Written by Production

Alternate Versions

The UK "15" version reduces two scenes (one where a dog licks a man's genitals and a moment where a character tries to urinate into another's mouth) in order to get the rating. Unfortunately, this version was used for worldwide distribution. See more »

Several of the years funniest movie moments so far.
6 August 2014 | by CharlieGreenCGSee all my reviews

Like most close school friends come school leavers, we often go our own separate ways. Jay (James Buckley) for instance has gone down under to Australia, where he is living it large with countless women at his luxury mansion whilst knocking out Koala's with one punch – or so he says. After announcing such antics he invites his pals Will, Simon and Neil to join him.

Once there and settled in at a hostel full of spiritual travellers, Will spots Katie (Emily Berrington) an attractive fwrend' from his previous, much posher prep-school, who entices him to go along with Aussie traditions and more. Continuing with the usual Inbetweeners style they quickly let the banter flow, bruises glow and bushes show like we have never seen before.

Spun off from the Channel 4 sitcom, the 'Betweeners remain conventional to what we all remember and expect – so much so that the gags and one- liners now seem rudimentary like the Family Guy or The Simpsons in-jokes that we have all grown to love. Only far, far ruder – which is why it has a 15 rating slapped on it.

Featuring (for the second blockbuster this year) the song 'The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face' – this time sung by Will (Simon Bird), it was as you imagine… A possessive girlfriend who cuts Simon's (Joe Thomas) trademark hoodies; Jay's (James Buckley) The Wolf On Wall Street spoof tour of life down under (minus the drug intake), and Neil's (Blake Harrison) usual, well special Forrest Gump behaviour – plus much more, overall it is great fun!

Although now all in their late 20's and early 30's, the boys are back (for another 93 minutes at least anyway) Yet producers (Damon Beesley & Iain Morris) and Inbetweener actors alike have all stated that they would 'never again' come back to relive the characters and that this will in fact be the last outing… but knowing the trend of recent films expect a reunion in about 12-15 years from now.

Yes – the fwrends' are back and easily provide several of this year's funniest movie moments so far, confirming why they are quickly becoming the UK's most successful comedy show. Move over Monty Python, there is a new boy band in town.
