Five Favorite Films with Genesis Rodriguez

Summary

In the odd chance that you happened to be watching Mexican telenovelas sometime in the last five or six years, you may have locked eyes upon Genesis Rodriguez, a young actress who was a regular cast member on several shows before moving to Los Angeles for an arc on Entourage. You're also likely to enjoy her performance as Will Ferrell's absurdly radiant paramour in this week's Casa de mi Padre , a movie that riffs heavily on the telenovelas of Rodriguez's past. We sat down with Rodriguez for a chat last week, in which she reflected on working with Ferrell and his intentions behind playing a Mexican. Plus, she talked a little about working with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the forthcoming Last Stand. First, though -- before we ran out of time -- she ran through her all-time five favorite comedies...

Noah . . . Abraham. . . G. (what are you: THE OLD TESTAMENT or something . . .ha ha ha) Noah Abraham's a wonderful name, really. Can't step out of line with a name like Noah Abraham, I'll bet.///she's "into" Will Farrell who made her an American star.///Young Frankenstein, Vacation--all-time classics.

If she's being honest about the Will Ferrell picks, she must have been pretty stoked to work with him.

As far as I'm concerned, "Young Frankenstein" makes it all good. "Anchorman" is still Will Ferrell's finest. Only one of the "Vacation"'s sucked. How do you expect her to resist the Blue Steel? She's young and ticklish. I've got plenty of surplus Python. Destiny! Destiny!

The only movie on here worth a damn is Young Frankenstein. This "actress" is a twit.

I'd say you're a twit if you can't enjoy comedies. Sure, Young Frankenstein is probably the best on her list but the vacation movies are classics themselves (especially "Christmas" and the original). "Anchorman" is a modern classic, "Zoolander" and "Step brothers" are cult favorites, so...

Aw, people can't enjoy mindless comedies?

How mindless of you.

Que Si.

Kelly Wherley

Yeah, but her utter lack of specifics as to *why* she likes these movies is pretty weak. Talk about phoning in your five favorites...

I have to agree about forgetting sarah marshall, (although it has nothing to do with this actresses five fave's) Im glad to hear it topped someone else's list.

seriously. SARAH MARSHALL sucked hard. LEBOWSKI however is amazing.
