Casa De Mi Padre review

Will Ferrell stars, and Casa De Mi Padre ends up reminding Ron a little of Black Dynamite...

Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) is a simple man. A rancher on the land of his father (Miguel Ernesto played by Pedro Armendariz Jr.), Alvarez and his friends Esteban (Efren Ramirez) and Manuel (Adrian Martinez) tend to the cattle, ride around in a pickup truck, and live a fairly idyllic life in the beautiful countryside. All this changes when Armando's brother Raul (Diego Luna) returns from the big city with his beautiful girlfriend Sophia (Genesis Rodriguez). 

You see, Raul is the brains of the family, which is why he's got money, power, and arm candy. Of course, one doesn't go from being the son of a rancher to a guy wearing expensive suits overnight. At least, you don't do it honestly. Raul is in some shady business, and his return to the family ranch

Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi Padre Domestic Teaser Trailer

Way back in April, a mysterious promo trailer for Will Ferrell's upcoming Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre found its way online. At the time, no one really knew what to make of it... was it a comedy that just happened to be in Spanish or was there something more to it? It has since become clear that it's at least partially a parody of Spanish telenovelas, although it seems to be so committed to the idea that it almost doesn't look like a parody anymore. A new domestic teaser trailer has hit the web this week, and it is short but stylish. I have no idea how Will Ferrell's usual audience will feel about watching an entire film with subtitles, but this is something different and fresh for Ferrell and for that reason alone I'm pretty excited. Director Matt Piedmont doesn't have a lot of feature film
