Torrente has now moved to Marbella, where, after being wiped out of the money he had gained, has returned to private investigation. But in one of his cases he gets involved in the middle of a villain's missile plot to destroy the city and his own uncle's blackmail operation... and he knows nothing.

(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 »

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.

Only one or two are really funny in Torrente 3. I would definitely skip this one and watch the first two Torrente's again.
