Casa de mi Padre
What a disaster. Today’s movie, Will Farrell’s Spanish-language comedy, Casa de mi Padre, probably would have made a pretty funny 8-10 minute video for Funnyordie.com or SNL sketch, but it fails miserably as a feature film. Ostensibly a spoof of Mexican westerns and telenovelas, the film fails to include anywhere near enough humor to justify its 84 minute running time. There are a few laughs to be found, but they’re few and far between. In the absence of sufficient humor, we’re left with a poorly-edited Spanish-language melodrama. The only real joke is on anyone that made make the mistake of paying to see this movie. It should be avoided.
