Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi Padre – What’s Spanish for…

Casa de Mi Padre

Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi Padre is coming out in mid-March, and I have to say; it looks awesome.  In the film, Will Ferrell plays Armando Alvarez, who works on his family’s ranch.  According to the summary on IMDb, he and his brothers “find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord.”  There will be gun-slinging.  Cowboys.  Penelope Cruz look-alikes.  Ron Effing Swanson.  But the best part?

Will Ferrell plays the entire role speaking in Spanish.

The movie poster boasts that it’s the “funniest movie you’ll ever read.”

I know I’m not alone in the world thinking that Will Ferrell is a comic genius.  His timing is impeccable, his delivery flawless, and his ability to push the envelope is inspiring.  I love that he can buck the trend of something normal funny, and can take on a project like this that is so bizarre.  This off-beat humor that not everyone gets is so up my alley.

Here is the trailer for those interested in watching:

Will Ferrell is due for a non-stinker.  Let’s hope this is it.  I have high hopes for this one.

Casa de mi Padre also stars Genesis Rodriguez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, Nick Offerman, and Efren Ramirez.

You lied, Ron. You do speak Spanish.
