Document 1: The four friends arrive in Benidorm. This attitude evidences the old male chauvinistic stereotypes that were commonplace decades ago. For example, when the friends introduce themselves to four French girls at a beach bar, they speak to them in an absurd, ridiculous manner mixed with Valencian. Luckily Brigitte Nazaret Aracil speaks Spanish perfectly and can act as an improvised interpreter. During one scene on the beach, one of the women tries on a bra without covering herself while the men stare at her open-mouthed with perplexed lechery.
Document 2: Lecherous and perplexed stares when a French tourist shows her breasts. Once in bed, with her breasts on show, she asks him in French to put on a condom before continuing. In the end, he has to respect the non-negotiable conditions and solves the matter in extremis by putting on protection. Denise, obviously drunk, cannot stop laughing as he gives her a piggyback ride. His friends, however, have all managed to have sexual intercourse. They pursue the four friends throughout the film as they have confused them with the bank robbers. However, they have no other choice but to reluctantly blend in with the summery surroundings to go unnoticed.
As they cannot identify themselves as undercover policemen, they are arrested and taken to the police station.

The appearance of the civil guard and of setbacks as a result of possible crimes links this film with the mishaps the Montoro family endure in Atasco en la Nacional. Document 3: Encounter between the policemen and the civil guards.
This is the narrative—and very Spanish 7 —recourse that allows us to observe reality from an exaggerated and grotesque perspective, transforming costumbrismo into a critical and nonsensical deformation similar to esperpento. Several decades later we see the less gratifying consequences of the happy s and the success of the policy of economic development.

The film is part of our popular cinema with social content, but with a twist to give it the modernness of the Simpson family. Traffic problems and jams during the exodus from the Spanish capital towards the coast are one of the main news items at the start of the holiday season every year. This is the introduction to a film depicting in highly significant scenes how the shared imaginary agrees on the failures of a saturated tourism model that is the opposite of the quality and exclusive tourism the well-off classes enjoy and that the middle and working classes cannot aspire to.
Document 5: Argument at the buffet. But the film also alludes to another tourism model: high-end in exclusive residential areas with all mod cons, golf courses, etc. The archaic late-Francoist liberalism has now made way for the most progressive social freedoms. We give you a home, a job and what happens? Foreigners are no longer perceived socially as something exotic.
In general, foreign tourists are seen as a factor of wealth, while immigrants are considered a potential threat integration problems and a cause of unemployment. Nevertheless, from an optimistic anthropological perspective, tourism is one of the main ways to bridge gaps between cultures and it is a useful tool to share intercultural experiences in a globalised world.
Decades later, with no censorship or national Catholic codes of behaviour, summer holidays in Spain are still viewed as synonymous with fun associated with the sun, beach, alcohol and sex. This is explicit from the first scene of this feature film, a lesbian fantasy in a whirlpool tub, and also in its promotional poster.
In this case, eroticism plays the role of identifying Spain as a fun destination, as mentioned above. But the liberalism Nordic women were supposed to display in their habits is a myth that has now transferred to Spanish men and women. The clash is between two highly different tourism models: Paris, supported by the swots, 13 is the icon of French sobriety and cultural city tourism.

Benidorm is the symbol of decontextualization, timelessness and eclecticism that excites the senses. Shit, man. Benidorm means having a party with your mates all fucking day, just messing about. Document 6: Poster advertising the film. Tourism, as a means of consuming, adapts its services and products to overcome seasonality and expand the age range of its potential consumers Ritzer, With the aim of raising money for the trip, one student with large genitals performs a striptease in front of his screaming, frenzied admirers to the sound of the disco version of the pasodoble Paquito el chocolatero , a song that is a must at any popular Spanish celebration.
These strip shows for tourists and stag and hen parties are a distinctive feature of the entertainment on offer in Benidorm. Document 7: Kitsch as a specific feature of Benidorm.
