Trivia

While widely known as "Torrente 2: Misión en Marbella", which is the title used in posters, DVD covers, and all promotional material, the actual on-screen title reads "Misión in Marbella" only, using before it the James Bond-like formula "Santiago Segura es Torrente en..." ("Santiago Segura is Torrente in...). The only entry in the series to actually have Torrente in the title is the first one, Torrente, el brazo tonto de la ley (1998). See more »

Goofs

During the scene about the bananas, the bowl containing them repeated disappears and reappears between shots - there's even a metal cover placed on it in one shot. See more »

Crazy Credits

Main actor and director Santiago Segura sings parts of the ending songs but, in the credits, he is listed as "José Luis Torrente" (the fictional character he plays in the movie - and in the song). At the very ending of the credits, Segura says (not sings) "¿Y éste quién es? Ya no queda nadie" ("And who the heck is that one? There's nobody left"), meaning that all the audience has left the cinema but one person. See more »

Second entry in ¨Torrente series¨ starred by the most grotesque and dirty detective well played by Santiago Segura
8 April 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Featuring politically incorrect private detective Torrente (Santiago Segura) , he is a lazy, rude , despicable drunkard , caring only about protecting and serving himself . Despite that, he still manages to get the job done . Torrente follows the exploits of Jose Luis Torrente, a Bad Santa of the police force . This time he is moved to Marbella, where , after being wiped out of the money he had gained , has returned to private investigation . As usual , being helped by Cuco (Gabino Diego) , both of whom attempt to detain the local Mafia . Meanwhile , Torrente falls in love for a beautiful singer (Ines Sastre) but is utterly rejected . In one of his cases he discovers the illegalities and irregularities of a powerful magnate (Jose Luis Moreno) and gets involved in the middle of a nasty's missile plot to destroy the city and his own uncle's blackmail operation .

This is 2º installment in Torrente series . These films are made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a nice entertainment . "Torrente 2" is a passable and unapologetic dark comedy with great special effects , it has several funny and hilarious scenes and quite successful action scenes with persecution , car chases and many other things . The picture contains thrills , nosy action , tongue-in-cheek , profanities , grotesque situations and above all , humor . Torrente 2 is written, directed, produced and stars Segura, whose production house Amiguetes Entertainment produced the film , UIP holds Spanish distribution rights . The screenplay is absurd as well as crazy , just what makes laugh a lot , that the character "Torrente" very slutty , clumsy , sexist , extreme-right-wing , on a real person is despicable , being not adequate , but this is a film that satirizes all this and that just means it's a pathetic character , though he also has his charms . Torrente 2 grossed more than €22 million in 2001 and the first Torrente, which set box office records in its day, took $707,000 . The film contains many cameos of famous people, familiar faces such as Tony Leblanc , Juanito Navarro , Joe Luis Lopez Vazquez , Paloma Cela , Santi Millan , Jose Mota , Pablo Carbonel ,among others . This film will not disappoint Santiago Segura fans.

The first outing was ¨Torrente El Brazo Tonto De La Ley¨ in which he fights against the oriental mafia in Madrid , being starred by Javier Cámara , Neus Asensi , Chus Lampreave , Tony Leblanc , Antonio De La Torre ; ¨Torrente 3 El Protector¨ in which the horrendous Spanish detective becomes a bodyguard , being performed by José Mota , Javier Gutiérrez , Carlos Latre , Yvonne Sciò , Eduardo García , Fabio Testi ; ¨Torrente 4 Lethal crisis¨ with Carlos Areces , Kiko Rivera , Javier Gutiérrez , Fernando Esteso and ¨Torrente V: Misión Eurovegas¨ with Alec Baldwin , Anna Simon ,Neus Asensi , Pablo Motos , Chus Lampreave ,Andrés Pajares . The movies were written by, directed by and starred popular Spanish comedian-director Santiago Segura and is getting the remake treatment from New Line Cinema ; all of them were produced by Andres Vicente Gomez, who exec produced the Academy Award-winning Belle Epoque
