The Inbetweeners 2 - Pre-Cuts Probably Worldwide

We Checked: German Version is Identical

You might recall that the first Inbetweeners movie had its censorship issues in the UK. Because a 15 rating was desired by the distributor for the theatrical release, the BBFC's suggested 18 classification had to be circumvented by making cuts. And the sequel that brings the boys all the way out to Australia had the same situation.

But there are still notable differences. While the UK DVD of the first film only contained the cut theatrical version, the Blu-ray had the uncut version on board and was even accompanied by a longer Extended Cut. A good treat for fans that also raised some optimism that something like that could also happen for the sequel. But the reality is another. On both the UK DVD and Blu-ray, only the pre-cut BBFC 15 version from cinemas is included. That's a bummer but still not the end for all hopes since in some other cases those pre-cuts did not surface in foreign releases of a film.

To check that, we took the German DVD (rated FSK 12) by Universum Film and compared the two. Unfortunately, the result is that the film itself is absolutely identical. Since it is a British film that was cut even before it went to cinemas and thus was censored during post-production, the assumption that this is the only version of the film that was subsequently submitted to all other markets is quite realistic. But there's another rather curious sidenote. When the BBFC viewed the bonus features for the home video releases they demanded far-reaching cuts because a part of the deleted scenes obviously contained material that would gravitate towards the BBFC 18 rating again. In order for the DVD and Blu-ray to carry the 15 rating, however, the distributor Channel 4 had to cut 19:54 minutes of deleted scenes material.

But at least here's some sort of happy end if you want to go to such lenghts. According to users on the blu-ray.com message board, the deleted scenes section on the Australian Blu-ray is considerably longer. We couldn't check this with the German release because the bonus section is composed differently. Anyway, the comedy is quite frivolous even for BBFC 15 levels and still offers scenes and dialogues way beyond the waistline. If you want to get an idea of what had to be cut out and don't want to rely on simple text descriptions, you might want to get your hands on the Australian release.
