Casa de mi Padre Trailer

Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Gael García Bernal, Genesis Rodriguez and Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) star in the upcoming Spanish speaking comedy Casa de mi Padre.

Casa de mi Padre follows Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell), who 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 fiancé, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). 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 and they find themselves at war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael García Bernal).

Directed by Matt Piedmont (Saturday Night Live), Casa de mi Padre is set to premiere on March 16, 2012. While it’s cool to see Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal reunite after Carlos Cuarón’s Rudo y Cursi, I wonder if English speaking audiences are willing to sit through a Will Ferrell film and read subtitles from start to finish.

    I think I’m gonna love this one just for the Spanish. LOL I find it a bit unsettling to see Ferrell looking and sounding like that though hahaha, I guess it goes with the effect. xD

      @amy, Yeah, seeing this in spanish should be interesting. Wished I lived in the UK or USa to see this one at the theaters.

        @Rodrigo, I wonder if it’s gonna be a hit with the latino crowd. There hasn’t been any issues with it, right? No crazy protest or people saying “they’re making fun of us”

      @Camiele, I love how funny telenovela this looks… in a very cinematic way. Kinda like The Soup’s recaps of La Madrastra for some reason hahaha (YouTube those clips, they are hilarious).

        @amy, HaHA! I shall do that. And, yes. I see telenovela all up in this bish. It’s rather exciting. I never thought I’d actually see the day that Will Ferrell would be speaking completely in Spanish for a film; however, I think it’s just perfect for him. I think I kinda can’t wait to see this…HaHA!

          @Camiele, I know Bewitched was a pretty bad film, but I always crack up in the scene where he has to get the dog over to him, and then Kidman twitches her nose to make him do the most hilarious interpretations of that scene. He does a bit in Spanish there.

          I remember I almost burst out laughing at the theater back then.
