Casa de Mi Padre
Plot / Synopsis
Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father's ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando's younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), shows up with his new fiance, Sonia (Génesis Rodríguez). It seems that Raul's success as an international businessman means the ranch's troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul's business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico's most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael García Bernal).

Casa de Mi Padre Film Trailer Review
Casa de Mi Padre is described to be in the style of an "overly dramatic telenovela" and it definitely shows. A Mexican telenovela that doesn't take itself too seriously, or so seriously that it just looks funny. Not to mention, Will Ferrell's Spanish acting prowess will be put to the ultimate test.
It has drama, passion, Mexican music, convoluted love triangles, and intrigues; all that you wish for a Mexican telenovela is here on this comedy film just over the top starring one of Hollywood's funniest actor, Will Ferrell. A film infested with all of what you like and what you don't in a every Spanish telenovela that ever came out is what this trailer has to offer, and in a way it looks fun to watch. The film is obviously just an over the top Hollywood comedy in a Spanish coating, which may or may not appeal to most audiences. But if you like Mexican references, Will Ferrell's brand of humor, and reading subtitles even if you know that they can completely speak English, then this film is a no-brainer.
