Movie Reviews

  • yet the film feels ultimately hollow, perhaps because mocking soap operas is the comic's equivalent of shooting fish tacos in a barrel
    by Andrew Lapin [NPR ]
  • those qualities are what make Casa de Mi Padre an enjoyable mix of campy nostalgia and witty satire
    3 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • there has always been a flamboyant, sartorial element to Ferrell's comedy
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • the only problem is that it packs about as many laughs into its 85 minutes as a good skit does in eight or 10
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the film should have been an SNL skit
    3 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]

    3 of 5 by Manohla Dargis [New York Times ]

  • inevitably, people are comparing "Casa de Mi Padre" to "Death Proof," the fake '70s exploitation flick that was Quentin Tarantino's half of "Grindhouse."
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • in fact, a deliberately cheesy movie. But the laughs are missing in action
    by Marshall Fine [Hollywood & Fine ]
  • for one single scene we could see the remnants of a less bankrupt idea take shape and die quickly
    by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine ]
  • for fans of Ferrell and inventive parodies, Casa de mi Padre is comic oro
    3 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • considerably less entertaining are the draggy drug-war plot and the characters who populate it
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • an argument for empathy runs through the narco-mayhem absurdity, but like much of the proceedings, it's a loose thread
    2.5 of 5 by Sheri Linden [Los Angeles Times ]
  • all of this adds up to 84 minutes of maximum Ferrellian oddness
    2 of 4 by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle ]
