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.

Lazy writing that relies on gross out humour
9 December 2018 | by fallyhagSee all my reviews

A mash of the inbetweeners and the hangover. This film should be in court for multiple stolen ideas. There are very few funny bits and the story is painfully predictable and dull. I'm rrallu struggling to understand how they failed so badly at writing their own story rather than copying others. It's just a lazy film that didn't need to be made like it was. Not recommended.
