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

I never really wanted to see this one. I hate Will Ferrell and this just didn't garner any interest for me. It does have a pleasant cast otherwise with the likes of Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez, Efren Ramirez, and Gael Garcia Bernal.

It is quite obvious a parody of telenovelas and low budget Mexican cinema. It starts off with some Spanish music and a narrator announcing it will be a... read more

“I never really wanted to see this one. I hate Will Ferrell and this just didn't garner any interest for me. It does have a pleasant cast otherwise with the likes of Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez, Efren Ramirez, and Gael Garcia Bernal.

It is quite obvious a parody of telenovelas and low budget Mexican cinema. It starts off with some Spanish music and a narrator announcing it will be a Mexican film due to this. I did like the Christina Aguilera James Bondy theme song. That was kind of funny. Most of it just tries way too hard to be funny though. It ends up coming up way too short of that. Sure I snickered a few times, but it was more due to stupidity than anything else. It had a few moments of violence I had not expected to see which were probably the only interesting thing here. ” 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. 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'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
