There's basically just one joke in this scruffy British comedy, and it's dragged out painfully for the better part of an hour before the script finally clicks into gear. Likeable actors help hold our interest until then, giving realistic performances even if everything about the movie is deeply implausible. And at least the final act has some genuine wit in it.
It starts three months before the wedding of Kyle and Lydia (Philip McGinley and Emily Atack), as Kyle's best man Jarvis (Mark Stobbart) takes him on a series of stag-night activities including naked paint-balling and a visit to a brothel. When Kyle discovers that he has a sexually transmitted disease, he decides not to tell Lydia. But how can he avoid sex until the final all-clear test in 90 days time? Jarvis offers several elaborate excuses, while Kyle chooses a more subtle approach. But even without knowing what's up, Lydia begins to doubt whether they should get married.
First of all, who plans a stag night three full months before the wedding? This is the kind of boneheaded logic that infuses the entire film and leaves us unable to believe anything that happens. Obviously, the real problem in this relationship isn't that Kyle has contracted an STD, but that he's unable to be honest with the woman he plans to marry. Writer-director Ben Cookson never even touches on this, instead barrelling on with the goofy antics.

Atack, who plays Charlotte Hinchcliffe in the popular E4 comedy, went to police after twitter user @jeffjon56599388 used the social networking site to send over a barrage of worrying messages to the young star. Currently suspended when you search for the user's name on twitter, The Daily Mail has records of the horrible posts. "Emily its time 4 u to leave this world, ur last hours wnt be pleasant, it will acheive the objective" said one. Another said: 'u sound happy!? im glad!!! visit yr family now...tell them goodbye! it'll be yr last chance to do so!!!!!!' Atack hit back, saying "Everyone report @jeffjon56599388 ^https://twitter.com/jeffjon56599388@ never read/seen anything so vicious towards me in my whole life." She added: 'Please everyone show these tweets to @bedspolice ! Can't be having that. Next level." Given the history of abusive tweets being dealt with swiftly, and the fact that the locations of users can be determined based on ip addresses, it would appear tremendously unwise to use twitter for such purposes; unwise and unkind.
Atack replied to her abuser, confirming the inclusion of the police in the matter, saying, "Prison for you", telling sympathetic fans that her abuser had "lost the plot" and writing: "Hi all, thanks for your nice tweets! Police are on the case. X" A Bedfordshire Police spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that we received a complaint reporting malicious communications and our investigations are ongoing." We'll have more as it breaks.

An internet troll who threatened to kill The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack is being hunted by police. The actress - who played Charlotte Hinchcliffe in the Channel 4 comedy - reported a Twitter user who claimed they would slice her to bits and make her "bleed to death."
The user 'jeffjon56599388' has since been named as Jeff Jones, who told Atack in one of his many tweets, "Emily its time 4 u to leave this world, ur last hours wnt be pleasant, but it will achieve the objective." Remaining pretty calm about the whole thing, the actress reported the issue to police before telling Jones "Prison for you." Somewhat unnervingly, he tweeted back, "Prison for me...death and heaven for you." Afterwards, the actress urged her 84,000 Twitter followers to report the troll, her fans hit back - in their droves. One ranted, "To the vile creature sending @ematack abuse! Be a man and show ur face!"
