Review: The Inbetweeners

Based on the popular British telly series

Based on a popular British telly series and directed by Ben Palmer, The Inbetweeners sends its four randy, clumsy, post-high-school twits on a journey to the hedonistic vacation resort of Malia on the Mediterranean island of Crete. Amidst the babes, the clubs, the dancing, and the partying, our quartet of blokes, predictably, find their soul and humanity, even as they blab endlessly smutty sentiments and obsess about getting some. The cast is fairly congenial, and this picture is kind of fun, if you don't mind the exported recycling of American Pie and Judd Apatow.
