THE INBETWEENERS MOVIE is a British comedy in which four young male friends decide to go on holiday after finishing their A Levels.

Language

There is very strong language ('c**t') and frequent use of strong language ('f**k').

Sex

There are frequent strong sex references which include jokes about 'fingering' women, references to 'vag', 'minge', 'clunge' and lubrication. There are crude hand gestures, scenes of implied digital penetration and a scene in which it is implied that a man is masturbating with slices of ham. Characters are heard having sex and there is a scene in which it is implied that a male dancer performs fellatio on himself.

There are infrequent scenes of drug misuse when a man snorts cocaine.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE INBETWEENERS MOVIE was originally seen by the BBFC in an unfinished version. The company was informed that the film was likely to receive an '18' classification but the preferred '15' classification could be achieved by making cuts in four scenes. These were to remove an aggressive use of very strong language, to remove a particularly crude verbal sex reference (to urolagnia), and to reduce the explicitness of two scenes of sexual activity (one of self-fellatio and one of masturbation). When the completed version of the film was submitted, the aggressive use of very strong language had been redubbed, the crude verbal sex reference had been removed, and the strong scenes of sexual activity had been reduced, by a mixture of cutting and reframing. The film was therefore classified '15' without further cuts.
