Big-screen spin-off of the Channel 4 sitcom following the life of socially awkward suburban teenager Will (Simon Bird) and three of his friends. The film follows 18-year-old Will and his schoolmates, Neil (Blake Harrison), Simon (Joe Thomas) and Jay (James Buckley), as they take off on a lads' holiday to Malia in Crete, where they go through all kinds of eye-opening and embarrassing rites of passage. This writer's cut contains an additional four minutes of footage not shown in the theatrical release.

Yes, the inevitable big screen outing for one of the best comedies on years finally hits the screen, and it's really nowhere near as good as the box office suggests.

Simon gets dumped by his girlfriend, and everyone finishes school, so what better time than to take a 'Lads' holiday? The thing is with the four leads is that in 30 minute doses, they are are amiable and quite endearing, whilst at the end of this movie, you really begin to dislike them all and also recognise the fact that they really don't like each other.

It's not the casts fault, they all do a good job, it's just once the narrative goes to Malia, we are treated with inane toilet gags and predictability we were given more than 11 years ago.

We get the group of girls who have the same traits as the leads, but things get in their way to prevent them from getting together before the final scene.

We get the ex who just happens to be in the same resort.

We get fat jokes
We get dirty old ladies
We get embarrassing nudity
And, we get the devious rep who just wants to use Simons ex, but she doesn't realise it.

The writing is poor and something like this should have been treated better.

The problem is, the genius marketing company decided to release just in time for when most of the demographic this film was aimed at just came back from holidays like the one depicted.

Despite the films potential, it gets a little depressing at times, especially when you get metaphors thrown in your face (hello lonely party boy) of what might become of the group.

A blatant cash in of a terrific series...

This is undoubtedly one of the best comedies I've seen in a long time. It boasts a great cast and it is wickedly funny but without ever being 'too' repulsive and offensive - a great achievement considering it's a 'lads' comedy.

I laughed out loud on a number of occasions but the film does more than make you laugh: without giving too much away, there were some very sweet moments where the boys' innocence in genuinely touching. Older viewers will love the memories the film brings back of first holidays abroad, drunken kisses and teenage infatuation. It's a feel-good, nostalgic film that we can all relate to. I left the cinema with a great big smile on my face and I would definitely watch this again.

**Note: I hadn't seen an episode of the Inbetweeners before watching this film, but I'm glad I didn't let this deter me because it did not spoil any enjoyment of the film one iota. So if you have yet to see an episode of the Inbetweeners, do still go and watch this as it's a good introduction to what is an undoubtedly great series (I've since ordered the box set!)

From modest beginnings on E4, "The Inbetweeners" became - in my view - one of the greatest British TV comedies of recent years. If you'd ever been a teenager in suburbia, you could relate to Will, Simon, Jay and Neil's ham-fisted efforts to get drunk, impress girls and navigate their hormonal way through sixth form.

The transition to the big screen brings a few moments of sheer comedy gold, such as the hilarious nightclub dance and hotel pool scenes, but the movie generally doesn't have the same wit or invention as the TV series. Whereas the TV episodes were short, sharp and usually ended with the boys' failure and humiliation, the movie is drawn-out and sentimental, and a happy ending is telegraphed from early on.

The film's plot, which revolves around the group's encounters (and growing bond) with four holidaying girls, doesn't really convince. The girls themselves are well played, but their interest in the boys - despite the latter's charmless, gauche and sometimes obnoxious behaviour - beggars belief. None of the romantic possibilities in the series were ever so forgiving, and four attractive girls on holiday in a party resort are hardly going to hang around after being ignored and offended. Elsewhere, the main 'villain' of the piece (a nasty club rep) doesn't get enough screen time or play a coherent role, and Simon's tedious obsession with Carli is overdone. A couple of amusing cameos from sociopathic teacher Mr Gilbert simply remind you how much better the series was.

While the story allows the boys to mature a little - even Jay gets a poignant scene when he realises that he and Simon will soon go their separate ways - I had the feeling that none of the lads travelled far enough along their character arc to justify the movie's upbeat conclusion.

I've not seen the series', but I thought this would be a good introduction. Based on this film, I don't think I'll bother. It's not a bad film, but it's very clunky in places, with some terrible dialogue. Perhaps I've just missed the boat on this one, or perhaps it's not really as funny as some think, whichever it is, there are some nice touches, but surely there's not one man alive who has been so blinded by 'love' that after he's been so unkind to another, she forgives him.

On the plus side, for anyone who's been away on a lads' holiday, you will see some very familiar moments, as painful as they may be in retrospect and there really are some genuine moments of comedy. I'm not much older than the guys playing the main characters, but this me feel so much older than I am. It's fun, but not a keeper.
