Trivia

The film was supposed to be shot entirely on location in the Basque country but local authorities wouldn't give any financial support, so the producers chose to shoot in Madrid and surroundings instead, where they were offered the support they needed. The decision was taken only a few days before principal photography began, so the shooting had to start with half of the locations still to be defined. See more »

What we'd like to do and most of us never will do
30 November 2004 | by eL_1977See all my reviews

Imagine a single men party that you now when it starts, but you never imagine how it finishes. This is what happen in this comedy in which three friends are searching the wedding ring which one of them loose in the ass of a prostitute. They will be implicated in a gang war, during their search. You can see a collection of different Spanish types of people, and also some Portuguese. During the film you will see that what in the beginning seems to be complete casual lost, it's no so simple, and there is co nstant surprises during the 2 hours.

I recommend you this film, and specially one of the bads guys, Pazos. It's incredible how he can mix words.
