The Inbetweeners Movie


The Inbetweeners Movie Preview  

 / 10
Preview by Brian Orndorf, September 6, 2012

Landing in America a full year after its UK release, “The Inbetweeners Movie” is intended to conclude the popular Brit series that ran from 2008-10, while also drumming up a little publicity for the U.S. remake of the show, currently airing on MTV. Unfortunately, I’ve never been exposed to the original work prior to the feature, leaving me at a slight disadvantage, likely missing inside jokes and established characterizations. Thankfully, “The Inbetweeners Movie” isn’t algebra, pushing forward as a lewd, crude teen comedy in the “American Pie” vein, with broad acts of humiliation and simplistic emotional cues to decode. While I’m sure the effort has proven popular with the faithful, newcomers shouldn’t have trouble catching up with the shenanigans, which are largely amusing and enjoyably obvious.

With their final school year complete, sensible virgin Will (Simon Bird), horndog Jay (James Buckley), dim-bulb Neil (Blake Harrison), and sensitive Simon (Joe Thomas) are looking for a summertime diversion to help clear their heads before adulthood arrives in the autumn. Planning a vacation to Greece to hunt for “proper gash,” the boys find themselves underwhelmed by their seedy motel and the lackluster nightlife, while Simon deals with a painful break-up from girlfriend Carli (Emily Head), who also happens to be in the vicinity. Desperate to drown their woes in gallons of alcohol and botched sexual escapades, the group finds comfort in Allison (Laura Haddock) and her friends, who are also suffering from awful vacation luck. With a vital yacht party approaching, the guys decide to take command of their Grecian getaway, hoping to strengthen their friendships before the inevitable separation of university life occurs.

Taking advantage of the show’s considerable leap to the big screen, creator/screenwriters Damon Beesley and Iain Morris introduce “The Inbetweeners Movie” with a healthy serving of sex jokes and disturbing situations, one of which shows off Jay in the midst of a furious masturbation session, wearing a snorkel and using deli meats for female simulation. It’s announced early on that the feature is going to use its R-rating wisely, with the rest of the picture highlighting male nudity, bathroom accidents, and, in the case of Neil, brief digital encounters with local middle-aged women.

That the film isn’t monumentally mean-spirited is something of a miracle. With such raunchy material involving clueless teen boys, “The Inbetweeners Movie” remains surprisingly alert and invested in goofballery, using dry Brit timing to diffuse the inherent ick of it all. The cast is uniformly terrific, with Bird taking a leadership role, pulling off narration duties and the material’s lone voice of logic superbly, nailing the effort’s largest laughs. The rest of the cast is offered more physical challenges, supplying the feature with amusing sequences of awkward dancing and general teen unease, especially around women. Humiliating interactions eat up a significant portion of the run time, with Simon painting a penis on Will’s heavily sun-screened back, Jay passing out on top of an ant mound, and the constant threat of bullying from local club goons. Original? Perhaps not, but the ensemble keeps the adventure lighthearted and occasionally absurd, while the screenplay attempts to feel out the finality of the movie by addressing future concerns as the boys deal with their inescapable disbandment.

Even at 95 minutes, “The Inbetweeners Movie” feels a little long, and the gross-out material doesn’t appear necessary to the viewing experience, which is always best focusing on the tart camaraderie of the crew. A subplot highlighting Jay’s hesitation with a willing, slightly overweight girl (nicely played by Lydia Rose Bewley) encourages a few angry scenes, feeling counterproductive to the brightness of the picture. Still, I walked away with an appreciation for “The Inbetweeners” I didn’t have before, enjoying this initial hit of U.K. tomfoolery from horny boys and their perpetual cluelessness and unease.

Starring: Simon Bird (IV), James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas, Anthony Head, Laura Haddock
