El Penalti Mas Largo Del Mundo is a Spanish comedy film which proves that even the world's biggest loser can become king for a week. Roman (Benito Sagredo) steps up to the goalkeepers line ready to block the last shot of the championship game between two rival cities. Fernando (Fernando Tejero), a broke and out of work weirdo who everyone thinks is a loser, comes into the game at the last-minute only because there are no more substitutes left on the bench. Roman receives a kick directly in the face and fouls Rafa (Javier Guti''rrez) just as he takes his winning shot. The referee (Chani Mart''n) calls a late penalty just as the home crowd runs on the field thinking their home team had just won the championship. The referee quickly sorts out the mess and announces that Fernando will take the penalty kick, but since Roman is injured, he determines that is only fair to take the kick after one week, when Roman has fully recovered from his injury. The town embraces Fernando immediately calling him a hero. He gets the red-carpet treatment from everyone in the town during the long week before the big penalty kick. Fernando even manages to go out on a date with Roman's off-and-on girlfriend, Cecilia (Marta Larralde), who he always admired from a distance. The big day soon arrives and everyone in town fills the stadium for the famous penalty kick that will decide the championship. Viewers get a big surprise as Fernando tries to keep his popular status against a spiteful Roman, who wants revenge for going out with Celica.moreless
