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 aspires to be a dance-music DJ. When they manage to stop a bank robbery, they're given a sizable cash reward and decide to go on holiday to Ibiza, which is supposedly populated with thousands of beautiful women willing to sleep with anyone. Bu after the boys pack plenty of condoms and sunscreen, 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

Eye-ball Paul's villa is on the Port Deportivo Marina. Every time Perry and/or Kevin is seen outside the villa, they subsequently walk along the jetty towards the water. These jettys don't actually go anywhere, so unless they travel by boat, they'd just have to turn around and come back again. See more »

Quotes

Eyeball Paul: Hows your mummy ginger pubes?
Kevin: Shes a bitch!

User Reviews

It's so gross but yeah, it's funny.
28 July 2001 | by famousgir1See all my reviews

I am never keen on the British comedys but Kevin and Perry Go Large is an exception. Sure, it's really gross but it is really funny and Harry Enfield and Kathy Burke both do a brilliant job as Kevin and Perry. Just watch out the for the picking-of-the-spots bit, now that is not a nice sight at all. Kevin and Perry Go Large is a really good film and I give it a 6-7/10.
