The boys go down under in this second hit spin-off from the much-loved sitcom.
An all too pedestrian post-school meet-up between Will (Simon Bird), Simon (Joe Thomas) and Neil (Blake Harrison) prompts the three friends to visit Jay (James Buckley) during the Easter holidays.
He’s on a gap year in Australia and boasts via email about how sun-soaked and sex-filled his new life is. The reality, as you might expect, is a little less glamorous.
Actually, it’s a lot less glamorous. Jay’s always been one to play fast and loose with the truth and while he does work at a nightclub it’s as a toilet attendant rather than a superstar DJ. This revelation puts a bit of a dampener on things, but prospects for the trip pick up again when Will runs into the beautiful Katie (Emily Berrington). An old school friend, she convinces the gang to tag along with her backpacking group as they make their way across the country.
The runaway success of the first film made a sequel more or less inevitable, but writer-directors Damon Beesley and Iain Morris don’t rest on their laurels. They make sure to inject enough charm and innocence to justify going for broke when it comes to the gross-out gags. To say that the bodily fluids flow freely would be an understatement
