Casa de Mi Padre Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father's ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch faces financial strains, Armando's younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fianc‚e, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez) and pledges to settle all his father's debts. It seems that Raul's success as an international businessman means the ranch's troubles are over, but when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul's business dealings turn out to be less than legit, the Alvarez family finds themselves in a full-out war with Mexico's most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garc¡a Bernal).

Review: Will Ferrell is at it again with his signature comedic wit. This deadpan spoof of the telenovella is a fantastic addition to Ferrell's body of work.  The film is absolutely hilarious, often in subtitles and always dry and uncomfortable.   Casa De Mi Padre successfully accomplishes what films like Nacho Libre missed...a deadpan and serious, yet absolutely hilarious film.

Interest Range: Comedy
