“I hate films where people talk to camera!” misfit Jack (Jamie Blackley) talks-to-camera in an opening monologue that sets the self-referential tone for Justin Edgar’s comedy.

What follows continues in the same vein as this feckless bank clerk and his two ineffectual pals embark on a wild night in Birmingham to only marginally amusing effect.

The Thatcher-era detail is the only fresh element in a film that otherwise sticks to the Inbetweeners Movie (opens in new tab) template. Mohawked rich kid Chunks (Sean Teale) is alone in leaving an impression, though only by being the most obnoxious one.
