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 love the TORRENTE character and I believe if perhaps the greater movie character ever developed; however after waiting to almost 1 AM to see the movie (on a Wednesday) because it was SOLD OUT; after a few minutes I almost leave the theater completely disappointed.
First of all; some characters are back but with different actors and not as good as the originals. Others quite capable like Firoentino Fernandez are almost unused. Screen time was given to the more stupid characters (perhaps cheaper actors) and very little to the really good ones but Santiago Segura who this time is not really able to keep the movie going.
Alec Baldwin is another misstep; usually a good actor and somewhat comedian; here is none. Only overacts as the bad guy and dares to speak Spanish (not that bad really but little).
Instead of going to excess situations the script tries to criticize Spanish political situation. If you are aware of what is happening there you can catch some jokes; but it is not easy to understand, I really hope Segura (also the writer and director) makes some money to repair this mess and makes a good Torrente 6. In the meantime; just forget this.
