The DDT, the professor Bacterio's dangerous invention has just been stolen by the dictator of Tirania. The Súper wants to recover it but he knows that it should not call Mortadelo and Filemón, so it sends the case to a boaster detective called Freddy Mazas so that recover the invention, but Freddy is bribed by the dictator Tirano. The mission seems that it will fail although Mortadelo and Filemón investigate the case for their own means.Written by

What are you doing?
Deciding who's taking you out to dinner, Ofelia.
Don't cry, Mr. Filemón. You can take me out some other time.
No, that's why he's crying. The loser takes the cow out to pasture.

German theatrical version was cut prior to submission to the FSK by ca. 19 minutes because the distributor thought they would never get a "Not under 6" rating for the complete version. Ironically, the complete version was later released on DVD with exactly that rating. See more »
This movie has surprisingly good visual effects for a low budget Spanish movie, compared to Hollywood productions, but it is a very boring movie. It is a good adaptation from the comic book as most of the elements of the "tebeo" actually are well depicted in the movie, but the characters are lifeless and somehow you do not get attached to them. I just sat back and watched how those readings that I used to like in school came to life visually but I hardly laughed at the jokes and gags, they were too childish and repetitive. Another misconception was that characters, specially Mortadelo, should talk rapidly and with an unvaried tone (actually, acting was kind of poor). During the film, I didn't even understand what they were saying and I guess I should wait to see it in tv to get most of their lines. I prefer P.Tinto, Fesser's first movie, it has the same good visual effects, but, at least, there is some heart in the characters and you get a little more interested in the plot.
