As one can expect, the offensively condensed and rudimentary Spanish-lingo, ethnic digs, spaghetti-Western gags, and inflated run-time all run stale...very quickly.

Being a slightly more original "MacGruber," yet equally moronic, not to mention subtitled, "Casa de mi Padre" is a full-length (84 minute) feature, diced into 5-minute 'SNL' skits, that when split accordingly, will make for great Youtube popularity. Ultimately, Ferrell's inundated, comedic dexterity, even his hailingly hilarious, puerile ignoramus self can bail out this feebly built spoof. This is the kind of flick where the foreground action becomes so untolerable, so uninterestingly involving, that the incidental details become the focus. So much, watching the various cigarettes being rolled up activated more cerebral cognition. As for Ferrell taking the time to "learn" Spanish for the film, at least he can now communicate with the native Mexican youth; that's about it. Expand

Will Ferrel has done a lot of movies and some of his more absurd comedies are some of his best. Especially he 'R' rated films.

I don't doubt the choice to have the entire film subtitled is one of them. I don't personally care for "reading" movies myself, but when they are good, it's not something that stops me from enjoying a film. This isn't one of them.

The movie, while a comedy, isn't up to his usual standards. It's not very funny and the few parts that DID make me chuckle are out numbed by the number of times I simply lost interest or didn't care about the film.
