Where did you watch this movie?

Embedded with quirky comedy and youthful romance, this coming-of-age drama centres around best friends Will McKenzie, Simon Cooper, Jay Cartwright and Neil Sutherland - who are not among the social outcasts, but also not cool enough to hang out with the cool kids who they aspire to be - have just graduated from their suburban London high school. Simon has finally been able to get Carli D'Amato, who he has been in love with since they were children, to be his girlfriend. Largely because they will be going away to different schools in the fall, Carli breaks up with him. To get Simon's singularly focused mind off Carli, his three best mates decide to take him on vacation for two weeks to get some sun, sand and girls before they move onto the next chapter of their lives in the fall. Neil makes the decision for them to go to Malia on the isle of Crete, a popular summer tourist destination for those living in surrounding regions. Jay, with inheritance money in hand, believes he can have the pick of any girl he wants. Neil has to decide what constitutes not cheating on his girlfriend, Nicole. Will wants to add a bit of culture into the vacation. And Simon still pines for Carli, getting her off his mind being more difficult when he learns why Neil chose Malia. What starts off as a disastrous vacation has the potential to pick up when they meet fellow Brits Alison, Lucy, Jane and Lisa, who pair up with Will, Simon, Jay and Neil respectively, and with who they hang, out of circumstance, for much of their time in Malia. Will, still a virgin, who generally makes Alison laugh, has no chance with her as she is far out of his league. Not only that, she is already in a serious relationship with a Greek waiter named Nicos. Jay is ashamed to be seen with self-assured Jane, because she is overweight. Neil treats Lisa like any other female with who he wants to have non-cheating "sex". And Simon may not see that Lucy really does like him despite his singular focus on Carli. All these issues are placed against the backdrop of the guys trying to get tickets for the all-day boat cruise, seen as the party of the season, and at which all their dreams - at least in their dreams - will come true.

This Summer four boys become men.
Surf. Sun. Shagging.
Out of school. Out of the country. Out of their league.
Errors in Geography
When the boys arrive at the check-in desk, the lady asks: "Malia flight?". Malia is a small town just outside Heraklion. There is no airport in Malia. All international flights to Crete go to Heraklion airport.

Factual Mistake
When they boys return from the holiday they are seen at Gatwick Airport arriving from the arrivals hall. The hall shown on the film are the domestic flights, the actual hall is on the floor above which is the main arrivals hall.

When Simon's dad takes the four lads to the airport they are seen getting into a silver Mazda 5 medium-sized MPV, we see this car again when Simon's dad is driving, however in the next shot of the car turning right at a junction a silver VW Sharan is used instead.

When Jay and Simon are fighting in the street, the positioning of the background people ranges from close to far away throughout the scene.

After Jay and Simon argue and attempt to fight, Jay walks away and kicks a nearby metal bench. The bench is empty when he kicks it, but in the next zoomed-out shot a man is seen sitting on the bench.

When Simon and Carli are on the Boat Carli's hair changes form shot to shot. When the camera is showing her face some hair is down her back, but when it shows her back it is all down her front.
A sequel of this movie was released in 2014.

It was a commercial success, setting the record for the biggest opening weekend for comedy film in the United Kingdom.

This movie is based on a television sitcom and was intended to be the ending of the series.

James Buckley who played Jay was 23 when the film was shot. He was the youngest of the quartet, who portrayed school leavers aged 18.

Although the boys' holiday is set in Malia (Greece), the majority of external filming took place in Magaluf (Majorca) - with any signs mentioning the location covered or replaced.

When the boys are in the coach on the way to the hotel there is another group of lads singing a "We Love You Burnley" football chant. When they get to the hotel the man they meet clearly has a Blackburn Rovers tattoo. The two Northern teams have one of the most violent and longest running rivalries of the game.

In the taxi ride to the airport, Magaluf is mentioned as a holiday. The hotel scenes and resort scenes were shot in Magaluf.

When the kid by the pool pulls Jay's shorts down a body double was used to 'superimpose' his privates.

Jay's dad says to Kevin Sutherland (Neil's father), 'Alright, who's this then, the vicar?'. Kevin who is played by Alex Macqueen previously played a vicar on the IT Crowd (2006), episode Return of the Golden Child.

James Lee Hunt, Sam Sheriff and Tom Wells got picked out of over a thousand applicants to play James's Friends. Another guy Chris originally was picked but it was seen as a better option to have three friends however he is an extra in the club scene in which James and his friends feature.

Anthony Head, who plays Will's dad, is the real life father of Emily Head, who plays Carli.
