British TV hit The Inbetweeners ended its three-season run more than a year-and-a-half ago, but The Inbetweeners Movie — which opened in the U.K. last summer — is here to cap the characters’ various teenage misadventures in grand style. One filled with sexual pratfalls and filthy language, that is.
Even a Yankee neophyte got some good (if not exactly “refined”) laughs from this preview, with absurd dancing and a gag about spraying cologne in one’s public area being… highlights. We, sadly, weren’t so enthusiastic about the movie in our review, complaining that Ben Palmer‘s “oddly enjoyable” comedy “spends the best part of two hours spinning a yarn which probably should have been spun over the course of a television season.” I think it looks generally funny, but I’d honestly wait to see the (relatively short) series before going into the movie. You need that mythology set up, after all.
