Back in the 80s, five friends cause raucous in their schooldays. Twenty years on and they’ve got jobs they don’t want and wives who don’t want them.

Mix in a dollop of The Inbetweeners’ intellectual wit, add a pinch of bromancing from The World’s End, and then stir in a few ladles of The Hangover’s vomit and you’ve got Destination: Dewsbury, destined to be one of 2018’s funniest releases.
