The Inbetweeners go large....,
This review is from: The Inbetweeners Movie Triple Play (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
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...
