It’s grim. It’s really, really grim. No amount of preparation or love for your child can prepare you for Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger, which has more in common with Invasion of the Body Snatchers than it does with any other Christmas film. One could make a cogent argument that this film is a secret military project to liquify the brains of the populace.
So, The Inbetweeners Movie is finally upon us, relishing in the antics of four teenage boys on holiday. And, what with the success of Twilight and High School Musical lingering in the air like a bad smell, it seems the world has gone crazy for teen flicks. Crazy, obviously, because these new-fangled teen movies can’t ever hold a candle to the likes of Ferris Bueller and The Lost Boys. Join us as we count down our fave ever pubescent movies of all time…
What a depressing, stupid sentence.
Remember how The Inbetweeners was proper good because it was what actually happened to teenagers, rather than what TV told us happened to teenagers? Yeah. The Inbetweeners Movie is what films tell us happens to teenagers. But on holiday. Funny if you’re fifteen, frustrating if you’re not, it’s just a bit of a shame such a solid team threw away their USP in favour of SPF 15.
