The design is brilliant, the delivery is mediocre

"Let him die. He's missing a hand anyway."

The concept behind Casa de mi Padre can be summed up very simply: Will Ferrell in a telenovela spoof - in Spanish! It's the type of pitch that one would expect for a short Saturday Night Live skit, which is unsurprising since Casa de mi Padre's writer and director have been involved in SNL for years. A Spanish-language parody of low-budget ... read more

Warning: this movie must be watched only by people with very good sense of humor. I don't understand why people are criticizing it so much : it's really good, and since it's a comedy, it's supposed to make us laugh, well that made me crack up, so I just love it! Great parody of spaghetti mexican western movies, satirizing elements of classical mexican movies and mexican telenovelas. Whoever doesn'... read more

“"Let him die. He's missing a hand anyway."

The concept behind Casa de mi Padre can be summed up very simply: Will Ferrell in a telenovela spoof - in Spanish! It's the type of pitch that one would expect for a short Saturday Night Live skit, which is unsurprising since Casa de mi Padre's writer and director have been involved in SNL for years. A Spanish-language parody of low-budget Mexican serials, this is an oddball comedy, but it's not nearly as insane or downright hilarious as it had the potential to be. Its restrained approach is commendable since it compels Ferrell to attempt a different brand of humour, but the finished movie is only marginally successful, with only a handful of laughs here and there. The premise would be better suited for a ten-minute sketch, as it feels t” read more

“Warning: this movie must be watched only by people with very good sense of humor.

Great parody of spaghetti mexican western movies, satirizing elements of classical mexican movies and mexican telenovelas. Whoever doesn't understand Mexican pop culture will not understand this movie either. Love the performances by Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, who are superior actors that can be chameleons and play any kind of character. Really funny and really good to watch in a boring afternoon. If the movie had been turned on into a drama - without the funny parts and stuffed animals and stuff - it would be a nice movie ” read more

"Katsottu: 11.4.2013 Koska olen vitun sekaisin, sanon, tämä oli parempi kuin Tarantinon Django. Ainakin kokonaisuus western-pastissina toimi paremmin. Vitsit olivat joskus jopa hauskoja, eikä Ferrell ollut ärsyttävä."

2012- Best to Worst (69 movies items)

"I was actually looking forward to seeing this movie, but when it got negative feedback I just lowered my expectations. This is nothing more than cheap entertainment. It had some funny parts and I did like how self-aware it was of it's low production values. One thing that surprised me were the action scenes. For a cheesy movie, the action scenes were actually good. Nothing great, but it's somewhat enjoyable."

"A funny, silly parody that stays subtle and true to its purpose. Like many Will Ferrell efforts the genius lies beneath the stupidity. "

"This parody of Tarantino-esque movies took me by surprise. It's actually quite funny, and I especially liked all the intentionally silly stuff that break the fourth wall, such as bad sets, bad back-projection (and with the same backround video twice in the film!) obviously stuffed animals in place of reals ones etc. One scene in which the movie actually stops for a while and we get to read a message about the scene being fake is kind of overdoing it though, but most of the time this parodic quir"
