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 »
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 »
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 »
Torrente is a crude, ladies man type man of the law. I think this version was even more fun because he's in the playground of Spain, Marbella. I think if you liked the first one, you will enjoy this version even more. I've even seen the third version, and this is my favorite. If you get the Spanish sense of humor, you will enjoy this film. I would say it's definitely for machos, and the wives and the girlfriends have to ignore lots of scenes in the Torrente series. But just keep a good sense of humor about it all. It's for guys who like sexy women (quite a bit of nudity in all of the Torrente films) and very Spanish domestic sense of humor. If you've ever lived in Spain or have a Spanish husband like I do, you will understand what I mean. For example, he loves "El Fary", Real Madrid, etc. The language is very graphic as well, and it is better if you understand Castellano. It is quite hilarious if certain things don't bother you.
