Casa De Mi Padre

Will Farrell stars in this faux telenovella-style film. The film-makers pull out all the stops in making this film look cruddy; there are obvious intentional continuity errors, painted backgrounds and rear-projection effects, shoddy editing, cuts between outdoor location shots and soundstage shots, miniatures, and stuffed animal stand-ins. If there was an actual storyline and the usual Will Farrell hilarity, they really could have had something here. They don't and it isn't. Also, Christina Aguilera over-sings the theme song for like ever. Take it down a notch, lady. You don't have anything to prove. We all know you're a capable singer. Settle down.
