Relatively tame when it comes to mindlessness, finding more joy in Armando's inability to roll a cigarette than the potential of his heroic posture.

Will Ferrell tiene cojones grandes.
March 16, 2012
Casa De Mi Padre will only afford you modest pleasures -- dry smirks as opposed to riotous laughs.
March 16, 2012
If Casa de mi Padre does nothing else, it establishes once and for all that comedian Will Ferrell can, within budgetary reason, come up with whatever deranged cinematic concept he can think of and actually get it made.

Ferrell is an hombre loco. Mi gusta.
March 16, 2012
I can't say the world was crying out for a parody of Spanish language Telenovelas, but this is the best one you will ever see.
March 16, 2012
Casa de mi Padre is one of those Holy Grail endeavours that taunt all comic actors -- an attempt to make a deliberately bad movie.
March 15, 2012
A loopy trifle that sticks around and is best remembered in hindsight, this could very well be a cult hit in the making.
March 15, 2012
Is "Casa de Mi Padre" brilliant or pointless? Indubitably it's both, as Ron Burgundy might put it.
March 15, 2012
There are some moments of loony hilarity, but it would have worked better as a short, as the concept gets played out quickly.
March 15, 2012
This very funny spoof of telenovelas and classic Mexican westerns is decidedly offbeat and absurdly daffy.
March 15, 2012
"Casa de Mi Padre" demands that you not take it seriously, and for the most part that's easy to do.
March 15, 2012
Probably too strange for mainstream tastes, but a movie sure to have a cult-movie afterlife.
March 15, 2012
Won't join the list of Ferrell's best films, but it's very funny and a worthy diversion.
March 15, 2012
Ferrell, as he's done in Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers, walks undaunted through the amiable absurdity, delivering his not-exactly-mellifluous espaol in earnest flurries, as the dialogue, and the bullets, fly.
March 15, 2012
Casa de mi Padre is an unorthodox entry in the stoner comedy-fauxsploitation genre, but it might feel at home on Ferrell's Funny or Die website.
March 15, 2012
When you expect it to go in one direction, it goes off in another. Most of the time, that clever element of surprise pays off.
March 15, 2012
Ferrell is a good straight actor for the same reason that he's an inspired comedian: He commits himself to every moment. Even in a movie whose highest ambition is to be true to its quaintly delectable tackiness.
March 15, 2012
It's a supremely meta-movie that never stops reminding audiences they're watching a film, and a spectacularly silly one at that.
March 14, 2012
Ferrell hasn't lost his knack for earnest weirdness, legitimately funny self-deprecation, and a dedication to taking some chances once in a while.
