The Inbetweeners Movie
3.5 stars
Directed by Ben Palmer

Rated R

Think Americans have a monopoly on raunchy, gross-out teen comedies?

Think again. Just 15 minutes into this new British comedy, you'll see that the folks on the other side of the pond are not only deft at dry wit, but can also deliver "American Pie"-style vulgarity - and it's enhanced by a proper British accent.

"The Inbetweeners Movie" spins out of the award-winning British TV series, which ran for three seasons (and is now remade as an MTV series).

It follows four pals who have just graduated from high school. Before heading off to university or whatever, they journey to Crete on holiday, with the sole purpose of landing some "fit" ladies (along with some other choice British slang for other female attributes).

Fans of the series will especially savor the hapless antics of the four leads, but there's really no requirement to have seen the series (though you absolutely should, because it's great).

No matter what, you'll laugh hardily at this good-hearted, naughty nonsense.
