Storyline

When Nick's girlfriend dumps him at graduation, he has a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university. He's convinced his life is over, but his best mate Shane has the perfect solution: three days at an epic music festival. With the help of "festival aficionado" and certified oddball Amy, Shane tries to get Nick to embrace the music, the mayhem and the mud. From the creators of the Inbetweeners comes The Festival, a movie about friendship, growing up, and going mad in a field.

10 Years Too Late
15 August 2018 | by zoegreen-194-798504See all my reviews

Seems like a film that should have come out in 2008, it just seemed out of touch. Played Mr Brightside at least 3 times. There were definitely some funny moments but just the same joke formats as the inbetweeners, nothing new. Noticed a joke pinched from Peep Show (no thanks, I'm full). Overall I had a fun time going to see this movie but I will never watch it again.
