Trivia

(at around 20 secs) At the very beginning of the movie, the motto of the fictitious Spanish Intelligence agency can be read on the doors: "Laborantes in Illo Sumus", which means "We're Working on It" in Latin. That phrase ("Estamos trabajando en ello") became famous in Spain when former Prime Minister José María Aznar said it in a press conference, next to George W. Bush, during a visit to the United States. He pronounced it with a marked Spanish-Texan accent that most Spaniards found amusing, generating a lot of jokes. See more »

Awful!!!
4 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I just arrived from the movie theater and I can't be more disappointed. Being a big Santiago Segura fan, I was expecting to spend two hours with non-stop laughs. However, I kept waiting for the "fun" parts... and they never arrived.

Torrente 3 has been a big blast during the opening weekend, when nobody knew how third movie looked like. However, I would be surprised if it is half successful as Torrente 2.

Maybe it is because he kept repeating the same jokes over and over again (the famous "pajillas" joke is mentioned at least three times). Maybe his character is so well known that it is difficult to surprise the audience. Maybe the plot lacks of originality. I can think of 15 funny moments in Torrente 2. Only one or two are really funny in Torrente 3. I would definitely skip this one and watch the first two Torrente's again.
