The Inbetweeners 2: Up, Down And Everything Inbetween


The last time we caught up with the lads, the fantastic foursome were all seemingly growing up and settling down into relationships, after an epic holiday in Crete to celebrate finishing their final year at school. The second film picks up nine months later and the happily ever after has been very much undone for The Inbetweeners.

None of the relationships lasted for the boys, apart from Simon who is still dating Lucy, although far from being the loveable innocent sweet girl he met on holiday Lucy has turned into the girlfriend from hell. Will has finally made it to University, which turns out to be somewhat different from the utopia he always expected it to be and he finds himself missing his mates. Neil is still the same happy go lucky Neil he has always been, except now he works in a respectable bank job. And then, of course, there is Jay…

Jay is living the life as a hot shot DJ in Australia, unable to move for all the “pussay” coming his way, and is certainly not thinking about his ex-girlfriend Jane. In fact only hours after arriving in Oz, he had already had a threesome with Kylie and Dannii Minogue. What a legend. Actually, knowing Jay, there’s a good chance none of that is true, but sick of their own lives back in England Will, Simon and Neil decide to pay Jay a visit down under, and thus begins their next great adventure.

Writers Damon Beesley and Iain Morris have decided to stick to the tried and tested formula with this much anticipated sequel, and rightly so – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Fans will love every minute, while newcomers to the series may be likely to walk away in disgust. Expect plenty of toilet humour and further embarrassing antics from Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas as our titular heroes, and of course it wouldn’t be The Inbetweeners without appearances from the parents, including even more innuendos surrounding the sexuality of Neil’s dad, and Will’s mum attempting to chat on Skype.

While the crude, lewd and extremely rude humour has always kept the fans laughing, the real appeal of The Inbetweeners has always been the relatability of its characters. Whether its a know it all with a superiority complex like Will, a hopeless romantic like Simon, a loveable idiot like Neil, or a brazen bullshitter like Jay, we all know someone like each of them or perhaps even see a little bit of ourselves in them, which is why we hope they’ll continue making more of these big screen adventures.
