Breaking News: 'The Inbetweeners 2' Is Actually Really, Really Good

Fans of The Inbetweeners have known for some time that the sequel to 2012's box-office busting big screen movie would probably be Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison's last outing as Will, Jay, Simon and Neil. The boys - whom we first met at a secondary school somewhere in the Home Counties - have only aged about 3 years over an 8 year period of shooting the TV show and the movies, and they've convincingly argued to leave the quartet's story at that throughout just about every publicity interview for their new movie.

The InbetweenersThe boys are back - down under!

So it's fitting that The Inbetweeners 2 - out in cinemas today (August 6, 2014) - should be everything that drew some 3.7 million viewers to its season 3 finale in 2010. 

The sequel is set mostly in Australia, with Jay - who's on a gap year down under - emailing his friends inviting them to come and sample his debauched new life. 

Describing the movie as "hysterically funny", the Telegraph's Robbie Collin wrote, "...when the four boys find themselves utterly alone in the Outback, and the background noise fades down to almost nothing, the film momentarily strays into Waiting for Godot territory - Godot with generous splashings of gay panic and toilet humour, at least - and you can't help but be impressed by its easy self-assurance. Not fitting in has seldom looked so confident."

The InbetweeenersThe Inbetweeners 2 will be the boys' last outing

"Lads' mags may have fallen out of fashion but the spirit of Nuts and Loaded lives on in this cheery, intermittently hilarious and unremittingly crude sequel to the 2011 box-office hit," said Geoffrey MacNab of the Independent. 

The Inbetweeners 2 is in cinemas from today (August 6, 2014).
