Check out the trailer for “The Inbetweeners,” a 2011 UK box office smash being plugged as the “British answer to ‘American Pie.'” So, it’s British pie? Certainly a nice crashcourse in dirty slang from across the pond.
The set-up is fairly typical. Four geeky guys with matching pink “Pussay Patrol” t-shirts go on vacation in Greece, with little interest in “boring fucking Greek ruins” and copious interest in getting laid. Directed by Ben Palmer, the film is based on the hit UK TV series of the same name.
Upon its release in Britain, the film spent four straight weeks in the #1 box office spot. It broke the record for biggest opening weekend ever for a live action comedy in the UK, and has gone on to make $70 million domestic (in Britain) and $100 million worldwide.
And now, be still our hearts, the Pussay Patrol is coming our way. It hits theaters September 7, via Wrekin Hill.
