Trivia

Santiago Segura thought of Eduardo García for the role of the young Torrente after working with García on the pilot of Aquí no hay quien viva (2003), when he notices not only that the kid could physically pass for a younger version of him but also that he made a solid impression of the character.

Awful!!!
4 October 2005 | by rolherrSee 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.
