* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Definitely can be seen as one to the late noughties: the soundtrack is taken from that period, mobile phones used by the characters are of the pre-smart phone variety and there are no tablets, characters use [=PS3s=] and Nintendo Wiis, social networks in use are Facebook, [=Myspace=] and Bebo (The latter two of which have fallen out of favour since), while Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram are not (though Neil uses Grindr in the second movie).

* WorkingTitle: The pilot episode was entitled ''Baggy Trousers''. Joe Thomas named the cast's 'band' on the radio after the final show's working title of ''1, 2, 3, 4''. This was most likely a reference to the song by Feist of the same name, which was something of a Leitmotif during the first series and appears sporadically throughout the rest of the show.
** ''Sex On The Beach'' for the first movie, which became its MarketBasedTitle in Germany.
** The second movie got a few although they were much more clear cut; ''The Inbetweeners Down Under'', ''The Inbetweeners Movie 2'' and ''The Inbetweeners 2: The Long Goodbye''. The latter was what appeared on all the scripts and (strangely) is the title that appears on Blu-Ray copies when read by the player.
