Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi Padre is coming out in mid-March, and I have to say; it looks awesome. In the film, Will Ferrell plays Armando Alvarez, who works on his family’s ranch. According to the summary on IMDb, he and his brothers “find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord.” There will be gun-slinging. Cowboys. Penelope Cruz look-alikes. Ron Effing Swanson. But the best part?
Will Ferrell plays the entire role speaking in Spanish.
The movie poster boasts that it’s the “funniest movie you’ll ever read.”
I know I’m not alone in the world thinking that Will Ferrell is a comic genius. His timing is impeccable, his delivery flawless, and his ability to push the envelope is inspiring. I love that he can buck the trend of something normal funny, and can take on a project like this that is so bizarre. This off-beat humor that not everyone gets is so up my alley.
Here is the trailer for those interested in watching:
Will Ferrell is due for a non-stinker. Let’s hope this is it. I have high hopes for this one.
Casa de mi Padre also stars Genesis Rodriguez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, Nick Offerman, and Efren Ramirez.
