Guia Del

The producers of the highest-grossing Spanish film ever, Spanish Affair 1&2 (SFF15/16), deliver another box-office hit. The best Spanish opening of 2017 with 1.5 million admissions, this screwball comedy follows the misadventures of three overprotective fathers no suitor in his right mind would ever want to meet!

Javier Cámara (beloved from Truman SFF16), José Coronado (No Rest for the Wicked SFF12) and Roberto Álamo (May God Save Us SFF17) star as Arturo, Poli and Chus – three friends who are going through a difficult phase. Their sweet daughters have decided to ruin their future with three loathsome boyfriends. One is an anti-establishment activist, another a slacker, the third an art photographer with playboy aspirations. Are these guys their daughters' future? Never! The only solution for the fathers is to join forces to get rid of them no matter what it takes.

Brilliantly satirising male insecurities, Cámera, Coronado and Álamo, with their chemistry and crackerjack timing make this an explosively funny, fatherly comedy that has had audiences all over the world laughing.
