Just in time for Will Ferrell's appearance on The Office, we get to take a peek at his Spanish-language film, Casa de mi Padre. It's everything we expected (and maybe just a teensy bit more): a full-on telenovela spoof, complete with sexo (that's sex to you), guns blazing, and slapping a-plenty. Despite the language barrier, Ferrell's character doesn't seem too far off his typical schmoes, but it's pretty entertaining to see Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna rise to the occasion and ham it up.
I couldn't help chuckling at the trailer, but I'm still a little wary of how this is going to pan out into a full-length film — it seems better suited to a four-minute Funny or Die sketch. Regardless, there's no denying that they deserve points for creativity. Watch it and weigh in when you read more.
