In case you’re wondering…
…the gossip and news about the second film has dramatically reduced since filming hence the lack of activity on the blog. I’m praying for some kind of teaser or trailer soon although if the first films to go by, the pre-release material is going to be very bare until about two weeks before actual release…
Australia & New Zealand fans…
…rights have been sold to a distributor called Village Roadshow and the sequel film will therefore be shown throughout the outback and the land of the kiwis.
hotel-romeo asked: In England how do they sensor the episodes? Because they are pretty dirty!
We don’t really have censorship - unless your cock ‘n’ balls are literally hanging out, after 9PM everything is acceptable.
Memorable Inbetweeners Quotes
We all cried when the third season ended, rejoiced when the film came out and argued with our friends about whether there would ever be another series.
The Inbetweeners – cringeworthy, embarrassing and utterly hilarious – has inspired a whole new language for teenagers, twentysomethings, and let’s face it, people of all ages who have been captured by the spectacled geek Will, the lovelorn, awkward Simon, the fibbing, floppy-haired Jay and the lanky, oblivious Neil.
There are too many quotes I’ve repeated without even realising over the years – but here are a few of the most common:
Beep be de beep beep beep!
We all have them. The friends that never shut up about their boyfriend/girlfriend/fiance/husband/wife/concubine. Thanks to the genius of the Inbetweeners, there is now a polite, effective and humorous way of alerting them to the fact they are becoming a giant bore, without anyone getting offended.
So nonsensical but so great. A booze-addled, suit-wearing Will uttered the now-famous phrase after a day of bunking school. It entered into the dictionary of every teen in Britain almost instantaneously.
Ooh, friends, football friends…
Who could forget Jay jumping manically on the bonnet of a car, yelling about how his friend was NOT his friend? A perfect but inexplicably annoying way of winding up any of your own pals who make a new friend…be it football friends, university friends, work friends or even soon-to-be romantic ‘friends’.
The Inbetweeners lads, like most men, like to pretend to be tough until they have a massive and unamused bloke staring down at them. Like most polite people would, Simon – to avert a huge punch up – apologises. With the scared voice of a five-year-old girl.
Do you think you could spare us the bulls**t for one minute?
We all have a friend like Jay. They’ve climbed Everest, bedded hundreds of models and narrowly missed entering the England squad because their penalty shootouts were so good it would embarrass the other team. Good on Will for calling Jay out with this gentlemanly request to shut up.
Feisty one you are!
Even for those of us who aren’t massive Star Wars fans, we could tell that impersonating Yoda wasn’t the best way to impress the ladies.
Because we’ve all had too many energy drinks before an exam. But most of us don’t have….well, accidents, in our pants. At the age of eighteen. In front of everyone we know.
The Inbetweeners has taught an important lesson to all those kids about to start school who had invested in a briefcase and prepared to proudly display it on their first day: don’t.
My arms don’t work and my hands are sausages!
Don’t do drugs, kids! Don’t EAT drugs! Or you could end up on the stage at a gig crying for your mummy, with the real, terrifying belief that your fingers are chipolatas.
My dad’s not bent!
For some reason, teenagers likes to make up rumours about their friends’ parents. Not an episode goes by where Neil’s Dad is not accused of being gay, always in foulmouthed terms. At least Neil’s Dad can take comfort in the fact that all the other parents are also routinely abused (especially Will’s Mum).
Bring your wellies, because we’re going to be knee deep in clunge!
A disgusting phrase, coined by Jay, which has every girl quivering in their Hunters (not in a good way). The word ‘clunge’ is disgusting, unattractive and now sadly rooted in the lingo of most young men in the country.
Because those of us who take the bus deserve to be shouted out by four odd-looking schoolboys hanging out of a bright yellow car (with one red door).

Anonymous asked: Is there a second inbetweeners movie?
Indeed; to be released Summer 2014 (that’s this year).
British comedy film crew boosts outback town
A British comedy called ‘The Inbetweeners’ is being filmed in and around Marree this week, offering a boost to the small outback town during the tourism off-season.
Publican Phil Turner says there are hundreds of people in the remote town that would not normally be there at this time of year, which is great for local businesses.
Usually Mr Turner can count the number of daily visitors “on one hand” during the hot summer months, but the remote town’s accommodation has been fully booked this week due to the British film crew arrival.
"I was thinking last night in economic terms as to what it means, it’s probably close to $100,000 a day while they’re here," Mr Turner said.
"When you think about the fuel, the food, and the fact they’re shooting in three or four locations."
He said station owners on the Oodnadatta and Birdsville tracks have been involved with equipment, trucks, water, prop vehicles, horses and riders.
"So behind the scenes is a tremendous amount of activity involving the whole community."
The 120-person crew is understood to be filming a movie version of the popular British sitcom, The Inbetweeners, which is based around a bunch of teenage school friends.
But Mr Turner says the crew is remaining tight lipped about the film.
"When you get a group like this through they play all that pretty close to themselves as to what the movie is about and the script."
He said the rural and remote feel of Marree made it a fitting film location- including the many character-laden outback buildings, and rusting discarded trains near the rail line that stretches through the town.
"They’re delighted with the range of almost ready-made props, they don’t have to do a lot of work to actually make their scenes come alive."
He said the town’s facilities, such as an all-weather airstrip and “reasonably good” dirt access roads, also made it appealing for crews.
The Inbetweeners isn’t the first film to be shot around Marree; ‘The Rover’ featuring Robert Patterson and Guy Pearce utilised this outback setting in 2013.
"What’s great is this is now the second major movie in 12 months for Marree, so it’ really putting a different spin on this region and the far north of South Australia."
