The new season of "American Dreamz," the wildly popular television singing contest, has captured the country's attention, as the competition looks to be between a young Midwestern gal (Moore) and a showtunes-loving young man from Orange County (Golzari). Recently awakened President Staton (Quaid) even wants in on the craze, as he signs up for the potential explosive season finale.
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
The scene where Kevin and Perry are scrubbing Eyeball Paul's floor had to be shot quickly because Rhys Ifans had to get on his flight to America to film The Replacements. See more »
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 »
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!
