Casa de mi Padre

A film by Matt Piedmont

Movie review

From the moment the camera freezes on Will Ferrell staring intensely into the audience, surrounded by painted backdrops and fake set props, one knows exactly what kind of comedy they’re in store for. Ferrell, who learned Spanish, or at least the Spanish used in the script, in just one month, plays Armando Alvarez, a coward who must overcome his fears in order to bring down the Mexican drug trade, restore dignity to his family and get the girl in this cheeky telenovela send-up. Under the direction of frequent Funny or Die collaborator Matt Piedmont, and co-starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, Casa de mi Padre is just plain ridiculous and, if that suits your mood, it is also muy comico.
