Casa de mi Padre 
Anyone remember Martin Short’s character Cheap Laughs on SCTV’s Six Gun Justice? Well this is kinda like that.
Film #033 of 2013
Director: Matt Piedmont Cast: Will Ferrell [Armando], Diego Luna [Raul] & Genesis Rodriguez [Sonia]
Plot: Scheming on a way to save their father’s ranch, the Alvarez brothers find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord. Source IMDB.com
Hipster Review: There’s so much to hate about Casa de mi Padre, but there’s also so much to like – this all Spanish speaking production seems to breed its roots from much funnier Western satires like Blazing Saddles and SCTV’s Six Gun Justice…it’s wacky ‘cheap film’ humor uses fake sets, bad dissolves and failed continuity between camera shots which really isn’t everyone’s cup of Mojitos. Watched January 30th, 2013.

- Filthy Rancher Armando and his two amigos – Esteban de Los Santos Escobar Chavez and Manuel
- The Pond of the Seven Tears
- Raul smoking a Canadian Slim while his bride walks down the aisle…this leads to a gruesome wedding massacre
- A thrilling Western-style gun fight between the drug cartels
- Bottle smashing and the Mexican Cha Cha around the firepit
Biggest Surprise: How serious Will Ferell’s demeanor was throughout the entire film.
Biggest Let Down: After an awkward bum squeezing love scene, Ferrell gets it on with a Mannequin.
Does the guy get the hot girl in the end? Its’s quite possible that the hombre actually gets the pretty little Señorita.
Worth a Blu-ray purchase? Yes, plenty of replay value.
Similar to: Blazing Saddles , Three Amigos! .
What Tweeters are saying:
Will Ferrell? A big yes or a big no?
