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 the end of the credits there's a brief scene where Sonsoles (Cuadrado's wife), who is still tied and taped mouth in the hotel room, talks to the audience. Mary Carmen, the actress who plays Sonsoles, is a famous ventriloquist in Spain, and indeed she impersonates the voice of Doña Rogelia, one of her memorable characters. Also, Dominguero's voice (from the WC) can be heard asking for the soccer game score. See more »
I have never seen or heard of the Torrente movies saying that I cant compare them to the previous movies but I did enjoy this one. After reading some of the other reviews that were so negative and unjust, I just had to give my two cents! If your you're looking for a Critically-acclaimed award winning Movie, no this is not for you. If you want some almost painful to watch slapstick humor that will hurt your side from laughing like the three stooges then yes this is for you. Its like watching Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, always setting him self up for failure. The viewer sees it coming a mile away and just enjoys seeing the comedic failure. It is a bit derogatory towards woman and misogynistic in my opinion but to me it shows the cultural differences on what is exceptable here in America versus Spain. (or the rest of the world for that matter) If a major movie company in America was this misogynistic in a comedy and not a drama, they would be shunned. Now I feel bad for enjoying the movie. I would have been just as (stupid) funny without the scenes I speak about. It is not OK to encourage or endorse this behavior. So I guess I can only say that I liked this movie because I learned something from it. I Love my Mom, my sisters, my nieces, my aunts and my grandmothers...Don't we all?
