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 »

. Torrente he gets involved in a blackmailing against the mayor of Marbella.
26 April 2006 | by (Bochum, Germany) – See all my reviews

After I saw Torrente 2 in Spanish I didn't know what to say... I've never seen any comparable kind of humor in a movie before! But I realized that Mr. Segura tried to gather some typical "inpolite" attitudes of Spanish society concentrating them in the character of Torrente. So this movie can be seen as a very exaggerated reflection of the low-class-society in Spain (e.g. have a look at the low register language Torrente employs!). But just that makes the flick so funny in a (in Germany) never seen form before.

The German sync.-version is a catastrophe! The expressions Torrente uses are too hard in German and too unusual. That makes the character "Torrente" some kind of confusing. Anyway I recommend this movie, especially when you dominate the Spanish language!
