Torrente has now moved to Marbella, where, after being wiped out of the money he had gained, has returned to private investigation. But in one of his cases he gets involved in the middle of a villain's missile plot to destroy the city and his own uncle's blackmail operation... and he knows nothing. Written by
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 »
Never seen the first Torrente, but if it's as good as this one, I'm there. Santiago Segura is excellent as the overweight, rude, crude and downright nasty detective caught in some elaborate plot in Marbella which doesn't really matter since the movie is a collection of gross gags and outrageous situations... Torrente is one funny man and he's ably supported by a cast of weirdos, including his slow-witted assistant Cuco, a madman obsessed with his pet monkey, a crime boss with a panty fetish, an overweight kid in a wheelchair dreaming of being a detective, and a lot more. One of the funniest films I have ever seen, proving why Segura is a cult icon in Spain. **** out of 4.
