Everyone’s favourite group of socially challenged school boys are back with their sequel to the 2011 The Inbetweeners Movie. The foursome reunite in The Inbetweeners 2 for a trip to Australia and, as is to be expected, hilarity ensues.
Will (Simon Bird), Neil (Blake Harrison) and Simon (Joe Thomas) head ‘down under’ to surprise Jay (James Buckley), who is on an amazing gap year in Oz, where he is supposedly earning millions as ‘DJ Big Penis’ in a local nightclub and living in a mansion where he’s woken up with a blowjob by a different woman every morning. A likely story! When his gap year adventures turn out to be much tamer than he’s been making out, the group have a very odd and tumultuous trip with hilarious results.
The Inbetweeners 2 has delighted audiences, taking the box office by storm since its release earlier this month. With a general consensus that the sequel is just as good (if not better than, according to some) as the original, The Inbetweeners 2 is exactly what we all wanted and more.
Never one for the easily offended, The Inbetweeners unabashedly throw as many sexist, racist and basically every other ‘ist’ jokes you can possibly imagine at us right off the bat. But of course, that’s why we love them. The Inbetweeners 2 is easily on par with the first film, if not maybe slightly funnier, which is quite unusual for a sequel (something most of us have come to anticipate with more than a little reserve). The jokes are outrageous and laugh out loud funny, and the lads are on top form once more with brilliant performances all round.
With the sequel being such a success it’s a pity that it’s unlikely we will see The Inbetweeners on the big screen again. The cast have spoken of the difficulty in stringing together a decent storyline that would involve all four characters being reunited once more now that they have all gone their separate ways for uni, and no doubt even The Inbetweeners could get tiresome and over-done eventually, although that’s hard to believe. However, if this really is the last time these four socially inept teens grace our screens, they have done a fantastic job of going out with a bang.
The Inbetweeners 2 is a brilliant laugh out loud comedy and is everything you could expect and hope for. Not for the easily offended, it’ll have you laughing, crying and possibly even throwing up.
