Ultimately, this is not enough comedic merit to fulfil the 85 minutes running time.

Ferrell and company do their best to summon up the levels of overacting that are the charming hallmark of telenovelas, but the forced parody pulls you out of that mindset time and again

If it doesn't bother you that they speak terribly bad Spanish, including those who boast of having it as their native language, and that the drug trafficking is the main theme... you may at some point enjoy this irreverent comedy. [Full review in Spanish]

Casa de Mi Padre is an amiable but eventually tiresome Spanish-language goof of telenovelas and floridly melodramatic, moustache-twirling westerns.

Even if you're making a bad movie on purpose, it's still a bad movie.

Fundamentally, it seems the big joke of Casa de Mi Padre is that it was produced at all, and as a weird Dadaist joke it is indeed satisfying. It's hard, however, to recommend a film that feels like a giant prank.

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

After awhile Casa de mi Padre begins to play as a conceptual exercise rather than a legitimately funny movie in its own right.

Pretty much one long sketch painfully stretched to feature length - Casa de mi Padre would have been better served as a short film series on Ferrell's Funny or Die website.

A spoof of Mexican Westerns and Latin American telenovelas, Casa de mi padre is a truly bizarre entry in Will Ferrell's filmography - a very broad, Spanish-language comedy that sends up a pair of genres few Anglophone viewers will have encountered.

No es cmico, Seor Ferrell.

An animatronic mountain lion proves to be the star of the show.

Like a supermarket enchilada, it initially seems appealing but you quickly realise it lacks flavour.

It's a one-joke film and that's the joke.

Vmonos, amigos!, murmur, y los vaqueros mont en la crepsculo friscalatito...

The script is disappointing and the film largely plays out like an extended comedy sketch that quickly wears out its welcome.
June 6, 2012
Odd, intermittently amusing but wholly unsatisfying, an oddball experiment that simply doesn't work.

Next time Ferrell ventures south of the border, he might want to take a gag-writer with him.

What a strange concept for a movie. It's funny in parts, but I have no idea which audience this movie was intended for.
