It's all a little undercooked, playing more like an extended version of a very funny trailer than an actual, full-bodied comedy.

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

Odd, intermittently amusing but wholly unsatisfying, an oddball experiment that simply doesn't work.

As a low-budget independent not necessarily intended for a broad audience, Casa doesn't have to bow to the middle-of-the-road multiplex appeal that handcuffs many SNL-pedigreed films. That works to the film's great benefit.

I tend to be amused by Ferrell in most circumstances, and the things I like about him - his bizarre sensibilities hidden beneath a mainstream exterior, his unwavering sincerity regardless of his characters' absurdity - are on display here.

I regard Casa de Mi Padre as an interesting but failed experiment.

Will Ferrell tiene cojones grandes.

Ferrell is an hombre loco. Mi gusta.

A product as cheap, empty and worth of a good beating as a piata.
March 16, 2012
For a movie with basically one idea -- spoofing the telenovela -- "Casa" is determined to take it as far as possible.
March 16, 2012
Really, Casa de mi Padre is a skit blown up to a feature flick, amusing for a while until its welcome wears out.
March 16, 2012
As a full-length feature, "Casa" is simply a funny concept that starts to go stale around the 10-minute mark.

It's perfect for a short clip on FunnyorDie.com. Padded out to feature length, with a bunch of other slight and unmemorable laughs, it wears thin.
March 15, 2012
It's really strange, and it's really subtitled.
March 15, 2012
Is "Casa de Mi Padre" brilliant or pointless? Indubitably it's both, as Ron Burgundy might put it.
March 15, 2012
This very funny spoof of telenovelas and classic Mexican westerns is decidedly offbeat and absurdly daffy.
March 15, 2012
A lot of the film unrolls like wasted opportunities, placeholders between the cheesy musical interludes and ludicrous Peckinpah-esque violence.
March 15, 2012
"Casa de Mi Padre" demands that you not take it seriously, and for the most part that's easy to do.

The film feels ultimately hollow, perhaps because mocking soap operas is the comic's equivalent of shooting fish tacos in a barrel.
March 15, 2012
It's a solid short film stretched to Silly Putty thinness.
