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
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.

Not a masterpiece, but if you are British, quiet entertaining.
I like the film, I gave it a 7, I even use a quote as my signature ("all I wanna do is do it") but I can see that it is not an amazing film, but it does what it says on the tin: its a Harry Enfield comedy - so its a puerile, toilet humour driven extended comic sketch. But it does have an awesome soundtrack, and does chronicle, in a comical way, the rights of passage for a British teenager from the late 90's and the traditional image of holiday with your parents in THE place to be at the time - ibiza.
I was a teenager in the 90's, I loved and still love dance music, I went to ibiza many times and now even live here, and I, like millions of other brits at the time, was a fan of Harry Enfields comedy. So for those reasons, this was more than a reasonable evenings entertainment. If you are looking for a masterpiece of comedy, then Anchorman is a good place to start, so too is The Office. Don't look in the direction of this film unless you know what you are going to get in advance - Lowest common denominator humour that pulls no punches and loves what it is. Enjoy!
