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 »

Quotes

Candidato Paiño: [while being arrested for pederasty] All this is a lie, it's clearly a complot, they set me up, man. How could I know that girl was 10 years old? Blame it on their parents! They dress them as whores!

Laugh and laugh if you let your mind to expand a lilbit.

This movie doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but like culture classics like Animal House, National Lampoons Vacation, this road trip Spanish movie has what it takes to be a great classic if they decide to re-reprint the film. The plot basically is a bunch of friends trying to break in their best friend with a prostitute before his weeding, but in this case a very expensive family heirloom gets stuck inside the working girl.

Now all they have to do is track the ring, because the whorehouse is a traveling one. On their quest to find the ring they get mix in with the mafia, Pimps, and a lot of cocaine. This movie is like a mix between Porky's and national Lampoons. hahahaha enjoy this movie is a fun one.
