The ten most important lessons we learnt from The Inbetweeners 2

Will, Simon, Jay and Neil are back on the silver screen with another set of excrutiatingly funny adventures

The Inbetweeners movie is out in cinemas today and was among the lucky few to get a first glimpse of the boys’ rumoured final outing as Will, Simon, Jay and Neil.


There have been next-to-no press screenings ahead of their second foray onto the big screen – usually a bad omen – but we are pleased (and relieved) to report that the new flick is a worthy entrant into the Inbetweeners canon.

Set in Oz, it revisits Will, Simon and Neil as they blow their student loans on flights Down Under to turn travellers (not tourists) and visit Jay, or as he likes to call himself nowadays “DJ Big Penis”. 

But as we fell out of the cinema, wiping away our tears of laughter (and embarrassment), there was a lesson or two to be learnt from the boys and their tragic endeavours. Here are a few life tips we picked up along the way… 

1. Always check a party is actually fancy dress before you turn up as Harry, Ron and Hermione.

2. Grindr is not a way of making loads of new friends. Unless you’re looking for a certain type of friend…

3. Jay’s Pussay Juice is probably not the most hygienic way to wash your hands.

4. Don’t feed McDonalds to dolphins.

5. If you want any chance of attracting the opposite sex, don’t name your vehicle the Mobile Virgin Conversion Unit. Or have Peter Andre’s face plastered across it.

6. The Sydney Opera House is not (we repeat, not) a spaceship.

7. If your girlfriend expresses a desire to lose weight, don’t buy her a Wii Fit.

8. By all means, get s**tfaced on your travels. But not literally.

9. If you happen to be driving through the outback, check you’ve got ample supplies of petrol and water.

10. A high-pitched guitar solo is probably not the best way to convince a girl to have sex with you.
