It's the Simbetweeners

Video game version of comedy movie

The makers of the Sims video game have created their own version of The Inbetweeners movie trailer.

As the film opens in the UK, Electronic Arts has released a version using characters from their hit game.

The real movie’s premiere was held in Leiester Square, attended by the cast as well as the likes of Jimmy Carr and Keith Lemon.

No preview screening have been held for critics to see the film, leaving fans fearing the worst. But the first reviews have been positive, with the Telegraph calling it ‘hilarious’ and The Sun dubbing it ‘The British American Pie - only better’.

Star Simon Bird previously said: Bird said: ‘[The film has] so much more of an emotional heart than the television series does.’

Here’s the Sims version of the trailer:
