Cheezy unrealistics pieces such as the background painted set, the white cat, the double take for Armando to go back to his dying father.The camera crew in focus through the bad American cop's reflective glasses. The mannequins. The tiger scene after Armando was shot. The colorful nonsensical montage that was Armando's vision. All part of the satire humor of this movie. The overt sterotypical Spanish style drama, that is set up then easily crashed such as when Raul turned off the radio when Armando walked in after shot. The bullet casings dropped when Raul and the army bolster up for the fight. Camera pans into the faces provide the drama giving the focus to the dead pan stares of the opponents. Parental guide: Many unrealistic but still gory and violent scenes. Sensual swimming into sex scene. Some cussing throughout.

Fallido experimento.

A strange artistic choice for Will Ferrell, even as a parody of old timey Mexican soap operas. While not very funny, it's oddly captivating in it's own casual way.

the 5 minutes of opening credits is bad then u are met with sub titles. A cool cast so u try to fight through it only to find disappointment . Where is the honor in being jealous of your brother will ferrell? Wills brother is beloved by his father and what does will do. Voices his haterd for his bro that is drug dealer and trys to steal his hot wife. This is the guy you have to root for.

Might have worked as a trailer. Or maybe a short, but that would be pushing it. It's not funny enough to watch the whole thing, and it's annoying, long, and boring. The fact that this is from Will Ferrell is so sad. But, I understand what he was trying to do. I can't say anyone specifically will like it. I think it's selective. But that definitely doesn't mean watch it. If you watch it and like it, good for you. And if you don't, then I'm sorry.

Not the funniest will ferrell film and was lacking in jokes, however this was a bold move and wasn't that bad of a film. A parody of old spanish films, casa di mi padre is deliberately filmed poorly, with bad continuity and noticeable props and backdrops. This all adds to the comedy and has suttle laughs as apposed with laugh out loud moments we are so used to seeing Ferrell in.

I enjoyed it more than I do most Will Ferrell material.

Liked the idea, had a few funny moments, but ultimately not very satisfying.

Although this movie has pretty bad Rotten Tomatoes scores, it became one of my favorite Will Ferrell's movies!! So entertaining in a weird way.

Maybe it's funnier if you speak Spanish as your first language? Pretty much a shit tier western with the added schtick that it's en Espan├Ál.

Not one of Will Ferrels most popular movie but I thought it was hillarious

I don't think that Will Ferrell speaking Spanish is inherently funny, which I couldn't tell if the film thought that it would be. But overall I thought it was a passably silly spoof and seemed similar to the Spoils of Babylon in terms of quirky stuff. I love anything with Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. And call me crazy but I do think Will Ferrell is a comedian with pathos. So I thought is was decent but I was also on pain meds watching this so who knows.

Comedy is very subjective and you'll either get it or don't. I found this one to be another hilarious entry to the wink wink nudge nudge satire spoof selection. Like Kung Pow did with kung fu movies and Black Dynamite did with blaxploitation films this does with Mexican soap operas. I've never seen a Mexican soap opera so going into this with zero knowledge of this genre and I still had a good time with cheap sets, actors cloths changing between shots, riding fake horses with even more fake backgrounds that look like they got from a high school playhouse. And you get some great actors from the Latino world. Diego Luna whom I really enjoy is great. Gael Garcia who I know more for his serious roles felt very natural in a comedy setting. And jaw dropping beauty Genesis Rodriguez who mad a great turn as eye candy in Man on a Ledge shows she is more then looks this time around. And Will Ferrell being a white actor in a spoof of Mexican culture speaking in Spanish are half the jokes right there. What I love so much about spoof movies are the actors themselves. I think it's much harder to act in a movie like this because the actors have to act like they aren't in a spoof but an actual movie. And Ferrell pulls it off genuinely.

La habilidad para el desastre de Will Ferrell da├▒a la presencia de Gael Garc├şa Bernal y Diego Luna (aparte de Pedro Armend├íriz y la presencia cantando de ├l Puma). Escuchar a Will Ferrell hablar espa├▒ol es comparable a que Alvin el de los Chipmunks declame poes├şa o que un perro ma├║lle.P├ (C)sima direcci├│n y libreto­~í
