The Inbetweeners 2

4

Rhymes with 'there will be poo'

“Muff before mates is actually a crime in Australia,” says loveable lunk Neil (Blake Harrison) and he’s right. From the three TV series to the 2012 hit spin-off film, The Inbetweeners has always been about the ups and downs of male friendship; and never more so than in this sequel in which the boys wind up in Australia, where fantasist Jay (James Buckley) claims he’s working the decks in a Sydney club under the name “DJ Big Penis”.

Back home, the spiky-haired Simon (Joe Thomas) is studying sociology at Sheffield, and still dating holiday romance Lucy (Tamla Kari), now the girlfriend from hell – microwaving his PlayStation and cutting up his hoodies. Resident narrator Will (Simon Bird) is seemingly the most unpopular student at Bristol Uni while Neil has just found this great new app called Grindr…

Deciding to surprise Jay in Australia, where he’s actually a toilet attendant driving a car with a Peter Andre mural, the boys reunite, then head to stoner paradise Byron Bay, after Will bumps into prep school friend Katie (Emily Berrington), his first love (“that is well Jimmy Saville,” says Neil). Sadly, he has a rival to contend with: Ben (Freddie Stroma), a guitar-strumming, trust-fund git with dreadlocks.

With Jay also on a secret mission, the plot is solid enough, but really it’s the gags that count. Is there anything to rival the dance sequence in the first film? Actually, yes: for one, the scene at water park Splash Planet; for two, Neil feeding the dolphins; and for three, Simon’s desert drink… a trio of gut-busters in a film that, refreshingly, saves all its big laughs for the second half.

Yet amid the riffs about Will’s mum’s tits and Neil’s dad being gay, creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley (who also direct) haven’t forgotten the four-way bromance that always made the show so watchable. Puerile, pleasurable and perfectly executed.

Verdict:

Rude, crude and packed with more laughs than Jay’s had lovers (6,004, apparently), Inbetweeners fans will lap this up. All this, and a killer twist at the end.

      I'm not sure about this. I remember watching the first one and coming out annoyed. Watching the TV show is one thing, but having 90mins of Jay being Jay and Simon pining after Carly really p****d me off, in 20mins i could stand it but a movies worth is too much, I assume Carly will not be in this movie thank god but another 90mins of Jay being a braggy b******tter will likely p**s me off again

      Always good to see a point you are trying to make being completely ignored so some internet warrior can make a mouthy comment think they are being awesome

      A squeal that didn't suck and actually was better than the first movie. If your not a fan of these sex jokes and these dick jokes or your not a fan of the series, then this is not the movie for you, but if you are then this movie will make you laugh and smile. This movie is more funny and even more gross then the first movie and the TV show. The characters have all there moments to shine in this film and the Jokes were so funny that everybody in the cinema laughed there a*s off.

      I never ignored your comment you plank. You're complaining about a film that a) you haven't seen yet b) is a sequel to a film that you didn't like c) is going to p*ss you off for 90 mins if you do watch it d) you ARE actually a d******d. So i refer back to my original comment......

      Watched this and thought it was a hell of a lot funnier than the first one. Funniest film I've seen in ages!

      This is the WORST MOVIE EVER MADE on EARTH!!! The people who made this movie AND ITS HORRENDOUS ACTORS should be SHOT DEAD ONE BY ONE OR BANNED FROM HOLLYWOOD/MOVIES FOR GOOD!! No such thing as humanity in this world anymore, sometimes it seems. Such movies are a DISGRACE to the existence of mankind and humanity. One should enjoy life to the fullest, but this does not mean you flush your humanity in the world of f****d up trash like this movie depicts.
