Trivia

Director Juanma Bajo Ulloa was determined to offer the role of Araceli to Claudia Schiffer, as it was defined in the script as a stunning beauty and had no dialogue. He finally never approached Schiffer because the character grew in importance after several re-writings and it required more dialogue, and Schiffer is not fluent in Spanish. See more »

Laughther over four wheels
4 December 2004 | by mutenkameSee all my reviews

Well, this is a fast crazy road trip movie with lot of funny situations and with a bunch of very hilarious characters. Everything starts with the wedding preparatives of a wealthy vasconian couple from northern Spain. The father of the man, who gambles his life on a poisoned omelette "roulette", to get the money to keep his honor in front of his haughty ex-wife and relatives. The four guys who decide to have their bachelor's party on a whorehouse where the engage ring disappears under suspictious circumstances, after a crazy night of delirious party with a beautiful cuban dancer.

This is the starting point of a hunting of the four guys after the ring, a "fraternity" that steals a test Volvo from the garage and runs after the mob's goodfather who found the ring, all over the northern coast of Spain towards Galicia.

Taken by the gangsters as drug dealers, pursued by the Guardia Civil and the mob, everything that you can imagine is far from the stupid things that may happen to these guys.

It was a great hit in Spain, and lots of funny words and phrases perdured in the joke slang of many spaniards.

Favourite characters: Pazos: The mob's lieutenant who's cell phone call to his wife made hundreds to jump out their seats in laughter: "Qué pofesioná" Bachelor's father: Famous Spanish chef takes the role of authentic vasconian who's love for good food and red wine is only comparable with his gamble addiction to "Pelota Vasca". His speech in the pre-wedding dinner is great: "... Here my son, a lawyer, just finished college at 30 years old ..." ... "Con dos cojones !!" :-D
