Mario Casas's character Adanne is a parody of the Puerto Rican singer Chayanne. In fact, the song performed by Adanne, called "Bombero", is a version of 2002 Chayanne's hit "Torero". See more »
Em... That was in my luggage.
They're death threats. Why didn't you tell me anything?
I... didn't want to bother you.
No. We in the top are used to this. Remember what happened to John?
John? John who?

TIFF 2015 -- My Great Night: Everything's a wonderful mess
'My Great Night' (Mi Gran Noche) is Álex de la Iglesia's latest dark comedy romp where a TV taping for a New Year's Eve special is happening (in October) and the people inside are slowly going insane from the monotony of it all. Plus, constantly dealing with personal issues and other madness behind the scenes make up for a collection of entertaining stories that eventually clash.
Iglesia keeps his typical pace of quick comedy going, with quick exchanges and constant surprises; it is rare that you are waiting for something to happen. He brings back the majority of his common cast, along with Spanish singing sensation, Raphael.
While most of Iglesia's films can be somewhat sadistic and violent, this film lacked a lot of that typical content. However, he managed to replace it with more racy/sexy humour. Don't worry -- he levelled it out with some violence for the fans. Regardless, this decision made the film a lot better than anticipated. His previous film, 'Witching and Bitching' (Las brujas de Zugarramurdi) fell flat on its face. This film bounces back in fantastic form. Plenty of laughs for everyone!
For a bit of a gauge, this film is somewhat similar to 'The Perfect Crime' (El Crimen Ferpecto), only a wider cast and more controversy.
Definitely give this a watch if you're a fan of Iglesia!
