The first trailer for the remake was released yesterday and Digital Spy readers were among the strongest critics of the first clips.
Featuring several familiar scenes and set-ups from the classic E4 comedy series, Bubba Lewis (Simon), Joey Pollari (Will), Mark L Young (Neil) and Zack Pearlman (Jay) star as the four teenagers struggling to be cool and get girls at school.
Joe Thomas, Simon Bird, Blake Harrison and James Buckley made the British version a hit with three series and a movie between 2008 and 2011.
Commenting on the early footage, DS reader Craig Randall said: "Someone please tell me why they can't find anybody to come up with a new and original idea for a TV show and not rip off a TV series originally created in the UK... again!
"The idea of a group of uncool kids at school is not an uncommon idea granted, but there are plenty of opportunities to create new gags, new stories, new names and a new ruddy title!"
Samantha Lloyd said: "'Together, they're almost cool'. And with that tagline YOU MISSED THE WHOLE POINT OF THE SHOW MTV. Wow, I know that some American redos have been good (The Office...er...) but this is just going to be another show that will a) not translate well and b) will just copy jokes from the original wholesale without even trying to be original. No love MTV. No love."
Adam Potts added: "What did I just watch? Looks like they have taken all the personality out of each character!" Meanwhile, Leachyy merely commented: "WHY."
One reader joked: "The trailer isn't working for me, which might be the internet's attempt to save us from something awful."
The Inbetweeners will debut on MTV in the US on August 20.
