Yeah it's different, but it was certainly entertaining. Will Ferrell was surprisingly believable through his spanish speaking ability and couldn't have played the part better. Props to him! I found the cheesy backdrops, props and editing choices to actually be very comical due to the fact that it was not too overdone. If you are considering going to this movie, keep in mind that it is a Will Ferrell film, if you are not a fan of Will Ferrell and his humor or subtitles this is not the movie for you!

Some funny parts

For me, this movie was more like a series of Saturday Night Live sketches. A few were very funny, some not so funny and some very un-funny. The Spanish dialogue with English subtitles was not as cumbersome as I thought it would be, but it was still a bit of a nuisance. Why was it even necessary? Will Ferrel was just OK in this one and the other actors and actresses were somewhat stiff and not believable.

A few funny parts but pretty unwatchable as a whole

The is the first movie I have ever walked out of midway through. Even though there were a few laugh out loud parts, the story and premise was pretty unwatchable. I get that its supposed to look like it's bad acting, and that the over pronounced gestures, pauses, and laughing is supposed to be ridiculous, but after 10 minutes, it just got over played and boring. Definitely a rental.

Creativity throughout

Low budget, no problem. Just attach certain elements to be included in the humor, problem solved. Will Ferrell is a comedian that has refined his craft and delivers within his style, that is his own. Kudos to Will for making a "foreign" film and jumping into something like Casa De Mi Padre. The casting was surprisingly exceptional in this "spaghettii western" B movie format. I think even Tarentino would be proud of the gore implemented without going over the top. Hidden within the broad range of comedic humor was a really good movie that I would recommend to anyone.
