Madre De Dios! Will Ferrell's Spanish Is Impeccable In The Casa De Mi Padre Teaser

By Rob Payne | Trailers | December 19, 2011 | Comments ()


If you don't believe me, check out the trailer:

I suppose it could end up being a Funny or Die sketch that should have ended 85 minutes sooner, but I imagine Jack Black is cursing the existence of Nacho Libre, because Casa de mi Padre looks like it gets at what that movie may have, at one point in time, been trying to achieve. I think it also puts the Tim & Eric movie's trailer to shame, by actually mining laughter (or, at least, waxing interest) in a joke's absurdity. I admit that I could just be partial to the joke, considering I tried something like that in college. But the poster below captures the spirit of spaghetti westerns pretty well, as well as having a touch of the Three Amigos for good measure.

Maybe I'm way off-base, but this looks like it could be Ferrell's and McKay's Black Dynamite. Or, it will be an abject failure. I'm down regardless, though I ended up really digging Rubber...


Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his ware can be purchased here (if you're into that sort of thing). He's a shameless self-promoter.
