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

At the start of the credits there are a mixture of alternative shots of scenes from the film, deleted scenes from the film and out-takes from the film. This is then followed by a continuous scene of inside Cream: Amnesia of people dancing as the credits start to roll up, this carries on until the music credits come up, at which point the background fades to black, but the music and credits continue until the end.

Currently rated just 5.4, I guess that it's more indication that it's not the kind of humour most reviewers like. There is perhaps s conflict between its viewpoint of adults with experience of bringing up a hormonal mid teenage boy, who are by this stage in life probably more into politely showing off their new kitchens to friends and family than guffawing at painful reminders of their gross male adolescence.
It is very Harry Enfield who no doubt has a very nice kitchen but retains a memory of his own awkward teenage phase and has no inhibitions against lampooning his younger self. Today's (or 2000's) teenagers in contrast probably find its portrayal of them as...So Unfair!
Harry Enfield is very good but Kathy Burke's Perry is inspired: "Sorry Mrs Pa-erson". Our sympathies go out to the film's hero, played by James Fleet as cashier, chauffeur, porter - and father.
It's gross fun in the sun and funny.
