Javier Bardem was considered for the role of Pako, but was committed to Dance with the Devil (1997) for the same dates. He eventually ended up making a cameo appearance as the star of a soap opera shown on a TV set. Viggo Mortensen was also considered for Pako, but his Argentinean accent was deemed not suitable for a character who had to sound genuinely Spanish. See more »

This film hits the unsuspecting viewer like a ton of Spanish tiles. The story line is fairly simple (boy-meets-girl-boy-is-about-to-marry-girl-boy-and-his-friends-have-a stag party-boy-loses-engagement ring-up-a-hooker's-XXX-boy-has-to-get-the-ring-back).The film races on at incredible speed through the northern Spanish countryside and there´s a great mix up with drugs and prostitutes and machine gun toting bad guys. The film has some things speaking for it. There are some truly memorable comic scenes. The "Russian Tortilla" scene, for example, is fabulous. There are also some funny cameos, some appear only for a minute and Rossy de Palma appears only on a photo. However, the film tends to sag a bit at the end. It's a film to see after having a couple of beers.
