The Inbetweeners is a Britcom near and dear to my heart. For those unfamiliar with the show, allow me this reductive comparison: it’s like Superbad, only with four friends — played by Joe Thomas, Simon Bird, James Buckley, and Blake Harrison — and set in the UK. At least, that’s the first thing that came to my mind when the series premiered in 2008, just one summer after Superbad. The Inbetweeners is no pale imitation, though. The humor is admittedly juvenile and revels in the most uncomfortable scenario fictional high school has to offer, but the show is painfully funny.
The program wrapped the third (and I believe final) season last year, leading into a movie that takes the boys to Malta. The new teaser trailer is not particularly representative of the series as a whole, but hints at the awful trouble the group can get into on vacation, set to the pulsing soundtrack scored by The Streets’ Mike Skinner. The Inbetweeners hits UK theaters on August 19, and hopefully will find its way to my country in some form shortly. Watch the trailer after the jump.
