Storyline

Kevin and Perry are two 15-year-old boys whose desperation to lose their virginity is so great that it inspires a sort of awe. In the rare moments when they're not thinking about girls, Kevin dreams of being a singer, and Perry has ambitions toward becoming a dance music DJ. When Kevin and Perry manage to stop a bank robbery, they're given a sizable cash reward, and they decide to go on a holiday in Ibiza, which is supposedly populated with thousands of beautiful women willing to sleep with anyone. However, after the boys pack plenty of sunscreen and condoms, Kevin's parents announce that they're tagging along. Undeterred, Kevin and Perry make the trip and meet superstar DJ Eyeball Paul , who may or may not listen to their demo tape. The boys also encounter Gemma and Candice, two scruffy teenage girls who are nearly as eager as Kevin and Perry to get horizontal. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Harry Enfield appeared on a UK chat show before the film had been completed, various clips were shown that have changed since making it into the film. These include: When Perry walks down the shopping centre and meets Kevin, Kevin proudly says "Let's wear our coats backward to front". Perry and Kevin then put their coats on backwards and walk around the shopping centre saying "Alright ladies!" to all the girls they pass. All the girls either look at them in amazement or reply "You sad virgins!". There is also no music or narration over the scene. In the film this has changed to Kevin narrating the scene and Perry asking why Kevin is wearing his coat inside out. Kevin now says "I do not conform to conventional clothing standards" and Perry puts his coat on backwards and then they both walk around the shopping centre saying "Respect". And there is now background music of Y:Traxx's MysteryLand. In the scene where Kevin and Perry are mixing in Kevin's bedroom they are playing their own mix of 'Big Girl (All I Wanna Do Is Do It)', however in an earlier clip shown they are playing Fatboy Slim's 'Love Island (4/4 Mix)' (the music that plays over the porn-mag/corner shop scene, a little later) and they are not singing, but Kevin does turn it up when Kevin's dad asks him to turn it down, which is identical to the film. There was also a scene that never made it to the final cut shown where Kevin and Perry are playing their mix on a deserted beach in Ibiza, similar to the scene in the shopping centre, except that no-one is dancing in this scene.

Goofs

The film makes out as if the club Amnesia is in the middle of the town - as shown when Kevin's parents leave the restaurant, when in reality Amnesia is halfway between Ibiza town and San Antonio - in the middle of nowhere with nothing else around. See more »

Good.

'Kevin & Perry Go Large' is a really successful follow up to Enfield and Burke's original TV characters. There is always an ever present danger with feature length adaptations of TV shows, in that they'll not always transfer onto the big screen with quite the same clout (Think Family Guy).

BUT, K&P have done very well.

So maybe the content is crude, but quite frankly it's a perfect reflection of youth culture abroad (yet obviously within a slanted comedic context). People do go to such destinations as Ibiza, Malia, and Ayia Napa and they DO lose their moral code.

K&P is if not anything else, a depiction of REAL youth culture.

Whether it glorifies that culture or not is up for debate. I'd argue that it doesn't as I feel that Enfield's character rather pokes fun at the naivety of youth, and whilst I've been partial to my own dalliances in nutty behaviour, I can sense a critical undertone in the Kevin character.

The film is funny, and the plot is definitely good enough to keep you watching. As a pre-pubescent teen at the first time of watching, I found the film better then, than perhaps I would do now - but I know I could always whip out the DVD, watch it, and enjoy it time and again.

Enfield and Burke were obviously well versed in their roles, but as always too the Mum and Dad characters played by James Fleet and Louisa Rix, were fantastic. Their uppish standards and typical parental attitudes are thrown out the window in Ibiza, and the denigration of these standards not only shocks, but humours you too.

Eyeball Paul (Rhys Ifans) is a refreshingly crude character, and the relationship between him and the boys is one of the anchors of the flick. Typically Ifans plays the role with precision, taking any subtleties and throwing them straight out the window.

All in all, K&P is a good film, but perhaps nothing but. It's hard to tell whether it's supposed to be a no hold barred comedy, or a tongue in cheek critique on British society. Am I supposed to take the film seriously? Or not? For that reason, I've given it six out of ten.
