This week on the Film Show The Independent's resident movie man Paul Whitington and Entertainment.ie film buff Gavin Burke review new releases 'The Inbetweeners 2' and 'Welcome to New York'
'The Inbetweeners 2' is probably one of the most highly anticipated comedies of the year. It surpassed Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie's opening day record in the UK on Wednesday and looks set to be one of the biggest comedies of the year.
The first, hugely successful, film saw the teenagers go to Malia in Crete for their last holiday before university. The Inbetweeners 2 follows them to Sydney, where Jay is living with his uncle, for a gap-year adventure.
However, whilst some scenes are hilarious, according to Gavin Burke it looks like the foursome may finally have run out of steam, although he says the door is wide open for a third sequel should this one continue to bust the box office.
'Welcome to New York' is equally outrageous. Inspired by the court case which saw a New York hotel maid accuse former head of the IMF Dominique Strauss Khan of sexual assault, it stars Gerard Depardieu in one of the best performances of his career, according to Paul Whitington.
