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.
Ian Buckwalter, The Atlantic, 2012-10-09
A disposable but inventive and intelligent series follow-up which satisfies as a standalone experience.
Joel Arnold, NPR, 2012-09-06
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.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 2012-09-06
It's vulgar in the extreme and technically rough, but with enough endearing moments to redeem the raunch.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2012-09-06
What primarily redeems the Inbetweeners movie is that it's so surprisingly tender and sweet.
Noel Murray, AV Club, 2012-09-06
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.
Jonathan Kiefer, Village Voice, 2012-09-04
Brit sitcom The Inbetweeners, which tracked the travails of four male misfits in their last years at high school, makes a satisfying leap to the bigscreen.
Charles Gant, Variety, 2011-08-22
You may not be proud of it, but you'll probably find something to laugh at in "The Inbetweeners Movie."
Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, 2012-09-07
I'm disappointed that they turned my horny-teen comedy into a gross-out comedy.
Kyle Smith, New York Post, 2012-09-07
Basically just another bawdy spring break movie - with an accent.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2012-09-07
The movie is apparently the most popular British comedy in history. I guarantee that its success has nothing to do with the quality of the actual movie ...
Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 2012-09-06
The audience should be interested in the antics of these idiots ... why, exactly?
Soren Anderson, Seattle Times, 2012-09-06
Who knew that when the "Porky's" movies (finally) died, they went to England?
Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, 2012-09-06
The snicks and giggles of adolescence grow wearying yet again, despite a few witty bits, none of which are in McKenzie's intrusive narration.
Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2012-09-06
Even the show's disciples may feel like they've been cheated.
