Ordinarily the question might be 'how many times can they regurgitate Porkys?' The answer, of course, is 'every five to ten years when a new generation grows up'. Because whatever laughs this film has, it's the latest in a very long line of rites-of-passage/youth-behaving-badly movies that will outlive us all yet.

From the UK TV series, it's a profane odyssey of four school friends who go to Europe with the promise of cheap booze, sex and girls but who end up in a hellhole and fall for the various tourist traps designed to lure them in while learning something about themselves and maybe finding something more important than sex – love – in the process.

The stereotypes are locked in and left to bounce off each other as the boys zero in on members of the opposite sex and the film is rambling road to pairing them all up through chance and derivative plotting.

There are admittedly plenty of laughs thanks to the crassness but it's nothing you haven't seen a zillion times before.
