It feels more like a knock-off of Superbad than it does The Inbetweeners, but I guess it’s all the same source material – the same hormones, the same baggy trousers, the same creative profanity.
This will be just the first of two Inbetweeners remakes, with Iain Morris, co-creator of the original, signed on to reinvent it as a US feature film.
Which I can’t help but hope is then adapted into a UK sitcom.
MTV’s Inebtweeners starts airing on August 10th. The big screen version of the original, which was a smash hit in the UK last year, will screen across the US from September 7th.
