You never blow your whistle!

Blow, a**hole!

I can see it from here. Blow!


Come on! Come on!


Why did you blow?

Why is it disallowed?



- You look just like her.

- Really, honey?

- It isn't too much?

- No! It's f***ing dope.

I'm gonna burn your tongue

in the curling iron. Watch your mouth!

Come on, Madrid!

What are you dribbling for?


Pass it!

Pass it!

How does it look?

Bad, bad, bad.

Barcelona is all over us.

Foul him! Do something!



That was a clear foul!

- Dad.

- That's a penalty!

- Dad!

- F***ing a**hole!

- Dad!

- What?

We're not gonna make it, Carlos.

Sure, we've got plenty of time.

Come on, hup two!



...take you, Isabel,

...to be my wife.

I give myself to you,

and I promise to be faithful,

...through good times and bad,

Your tie!

In sickness and in health,

every day of my life,

...until death do us part.

I, Isabel,

...take you, Fernando,

...to be my husband...

I give myself to you...

...and I promise to be faithful...

...in sickness and in health,

...every day of my life...

...until death do us part.

If anyone here present

objects to this union,

...speak now or forever hold your peace.

In the name of our Lord,

I pronounce you husband and wife.

You may kiss the bride.


No what?


What happened?


I knew it!

Goal for Barcelona!

You're beyond repair.

What kind of moron does that?

Setting a wedding date

on the day of the Cup Final!

My nephew planned it a year ago.

He didn't know.

Everyone knows that!

Come here!

- What was the score?

- 0-1.

- Who scored?

- The midget.

Messi! Jesus F***ing Christ!

- Where's the rice?

- What rice?

The rice!

I called earlier and

your husband said you'd bring it.

Tell me that's not true,


Long live the bride and groom!

OK, everyone eyes over here.

Squeeze in on the end there.

Listen up!

Cousin Carmen!

- Hello, Pepe.

- Beautiful! Just like Madonna.

What's that about Maradona, jerkoff?

Busting my balls over Bara?

Douchebag! I'll kick your ass!

Watch it!

Time for the picture.

Everyone, say "cheese!"


- This time with feeling!

- Cheese!

Carlos, Carlos!

Let's dance?

Look! That skirt is so short,

her ass is hanging out.

For Christ's sake.

She's at that age.

Ladies and gentlemen,

...tonight it is my pleasure to introduce...

...a hypnosis show

like no other in the world...

...that will open a door to the beyond,

...to the fourth dimension.

I give you,

...the one and only...

Peter Strauss.

- Could he get any dumber?

- Carlos, please!

Good evening. Welcome.

Congratulations to the bride and groom.

Thank you.

For my first act of hypnosis

this evening,

I'll need the help of a volunteer.

Is there a volunteer in the audience?

Just one.

Don't all stand up at once.

Not you, Mom.

They'll think it's faked.

It's alright.

Any other volunteer?

No round of applause

for the volunteer?


Can you please tell us your name?

Cut the crap, Peter Strauss.

OK, "Mr. Cut-the-crap", please...

...take a seat.

Keep a close eye on my hand

and focus on my finger.

Gradually, you'll start to feel

your eyelids getting heavy.

Your eyes feel heavy.

You're getting very, very sleepy.





You start going down

an endless escalator...

...which will take you

to the depths of your own mind.

Ten... nine...

...eight... seven...


...six... five...

...four... three...

...deeper and deeper...




The lights come on

and you're in a white world.
