Storyline

Torrente is a lazy, rude, drunkard, sexist, racist, extreme-right-wing Madrid cop; a despicable character who only cares about himself. He lives in a decrepit slum with his wheelchair-bound father, whom he treats quite badly. One day, a new family of neighbours move in, and the sexy younger daughter, Amparito, catches his eye, so he becomes a friend of Rafi, her nerdy brother, to get closer to her. At the same time, he discovers that a band of drug traffickers are operating in a nearby chinese restaurant; he knows that if he cracks this case, it could make him regain the status he lost within the police department; but the only people he can count on to help him are Rafi and his equally nerdy friends.

Great Movie, Spain's funniest
12 August 1999 | by (Madrid) – See all my reviews

The best comedy ever made in Spain. Every Santiago Segura fan will enjoy it. Maybe you'll miss a few details if you're not related with Spanish society and culture because the movie is an ironic critic to the old-fashioned fascists that still live in Spain, people who still adore Francisco Franco and similar freaks. If you have an open mind and want to laugh hysterically don't miss it
