Will Ferrell stars in this parody of a 1970s Mexican telenovela B-movie, complete with intentional continuity errors, bad acting and dodgy edits. Black sheep of the family Armando Alvarez (Ferrell) welcomes the return to the family ranch of his prodigal younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), but is jealous of Raul's beautiful fiancée Sonia (Genesis Rodriquez). As he struggles to come to terms with his own feelings for Sonia, he must face a more pressing threat in the form of Mexico's most feared drug lord, Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal), who has set his sights on the ranch.

Despite the negative reviews I took a chance, subtitles don't put me off and I'm a big Ferrel fan. I will openly admit you're not going to be laughing out loud for much of this film but I really enjoyed its rediculous nature. Not sure how previous reviewers didn't appreciate the production values were meant to be low and that this is a parody of bad film. Give it a go you may well enjoy it as much as me and some of the other reviewers.

It wasn't at all what I'd expected, but once I got over the surprise/realisation that I'd have to continue reading subtitles throughout the film - I LOVED IT! I mean, Will Ferrell as a native Spanish-speaking ranchero - what's not to love?

Ferrell plays a sweethearted by bumbling rancher down in Mexico whose family gets wrapped up in the drug trade with a powerful lord called El Onza. After an attack during a wedding, it's up to this unlikely hero to avenge his family's honour. Wackiness of a very certain type ensues....

More of a niche comedy than broad ha-ha-fest, 'Casa de mi Padre' relishes in the melodrama and cheese of over-the-top Hispanic soap operas. Yes, its story is rather thin, its dialogue woeful & bloated, and its presentation oversaturated, but that's how a lot of these shows actually are, and for that, it's a fitting and joyous pastiche. It's all here: over the top performances, continuity errors, overblown music, redundant slow motion, tacky production values. If you know these shows, it's right here, and it's a delight to see lampooned!

Of course, these ties mean the film does limit its potential audience, as most not initiated will not find much outside of these jabs at the tropes. However, not every film is designed for broad appeal, and for those who spent many an afternoon following these sorts of ludicrous and passionate love stories, 'Casa' should feel very familiar, and very rewarding. Hasta luego, amigitos!

Whoever decided it was hilarious must be easily pleased. I think Will Ferrell is great, this film is a good idea and there were some laugh out loud moments but it's not his best. Worth watching though. 3/5

The only downfall is you have to concentrate on the subtitles rather than Ferrell's epic facial expressions, hence I am watching again

I'm a big Will Ferrell fan but in no means do i compare this to his other films as it's completely different. Casa De Mi Padre is a spoof of telenovelas and classic Mexican westerns and is not supposed to be taken seriously. Great film but I would say avoid if you don't like subtitled films.
