Unfortunately for Casa de Mi Padre there's a very fine line between smart-stupid and slapdash-stupid.

Next time Ferrell ventures south of the border, he might want to take a gag-writer with him.
| Original Score: 2/5
The film feels ultimately hollow, perhaps because mocking soap operas is the comic's equivalent of shooting fish tacos in a barrel.
They set out to make a bad movie. They succeeded.
| Original Score: 1/4
Like a supermarket enchilada, it initially seems appealing but you quickly realise it lacks flavour.
The movie is only 84 minutes long, including credit cookies, but that is quite long enough.
| Original Score: 2/4
Some big laughs, but it probably would have worked better as an Adult Swim series.
Vámonos, amigos!, murmuró, y los vaqueros montó en la crepúsculo friscalatito...
This is one of those nasty little films that tries very hard to obscure its misogynist and racist premise through pseudo political critique.
| Original Score: 0/4
If the idea of Will Ferrell speaking Spanish seems like enough to sustain an entire feature, this eccentric but flat comedy is for you.
It's really strange, and it's really subtitled.
Despite a few flashes of inspired brilliance, this goofy curio just isn't consistently funny, opting instead to coast on the novelty of its premise.
No es cómico, Señor Ferrell.
| Original Score: 1/5
Bush-league stuff - a satire in search of a real target.
It starts feeling like a long series of in-jokes, gags that seemed funny on the set but barely ought to be worthy of a blooper reel.
Odd, intermittently amusing but wholly unsatisfying, an oddball experiment that simply doesn't work.
An unfunny Spanish movie that worked best as a two-minute trailer.
It makes sense that this Spanish-lingo farce plays very much like an SNL sketch. The only problem is that it packs about as many laughs into its 85 minutes as a good skit does in eight or 10.
As a full-length feature, "Casa" is simply a funny concept that starts to go stale around the 10-minute mark.
