The Inbetweeners Reviews
A British Crumpet parallel to American Pie, this feature-length dose of boyish sexual fumbling and fantastically dirty British slang is bound to expand an American viewer's vocabulary.
To say it's basically a British Superbad or American Pie doesn't allow for the real and nearly surreal comic possibilities of poise and genteel wit applied to randy scatological high jinks.
Plenty of funny bits, and apart from some fairly appalling underlying sexism -- guys, screw up all you like, the movie says, because the nice, pretty girls will forgive any transgression -- it actually attempts to have heart as well.
You've seen all this teenage male awkwardness, sexual misadventures and body fluids in so damn many American movies that British accents don't make them any fresher.
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.
