This December Four Boys Become Men 
I received a pair of tickets to watch a movie preview of The Inbetweeners on 23rd December 2011 (Fri), at GV Plaza (Hall 8), courtesy of Golden Village and omy.sg

According to the Urban Dictionary, an "Inbetweener" is defined as:  
Someone who clearly not "cool enough" to hang out with the cool kids, yet see's themselves as being above the typical losers on the social pyramid. 
An inbetweener, as implied by the name is a male neither a boy nor a man,it is that perfect inbetween stage where looks are still pumping strong but nothing is yet wrinkled.
Also this stage allows for the awesomeness of a younger male with the maturity of a man.
An inbetweener is not fickle and wants to have fun.

:: About the movie :: 
The Inbetweeners is originally a British sitcom which aired for three series from 2008. Since it release, it has received plenty of positive reviews and critics and was even nominated for ‘Best Situation Comedy’ at BAFTA twice, in 2009 and 2010.

The Inbetweeners movie is released after the final TV series. The 2011 British comedy film directed by Ben Palmer, who directed all six episodes of the second series and all but the last of the third of The Inbetweeners and produced by Christopher Young who produced all three series of the TV show. The film follows the four main characters on holiday in Malia.

The story is about four teenagers, Will Mckenzie (Simon Bird), Simon Cooper (Joe Thomas), Jay Cartwright (James Buckley) and Neil Sutherland (Blake Harrison) who have finished their final exams and are about to leave school. Within their final week, a series of bad events happened where Simon got dumped by the love of his life - Carli; Jay's grandfather dies; and Will's father reveals he's married his mistress.

Their accommodation is awful but everything turned around when they met four girls, Lucy (Tamla Kari), Jane (Lydia Rose Bewley), Lisa (Jessica Knappett) and Alison (Laura Haddock), in an empty bar during their first night out.
