Casa de mi Padre broke star Will Ferrell out of what he told Movie Fanatic was a movie rut. His Spanish language comedy is a tribute to Telenovelas and Spaghetti Westerns. It works on so many levels and is one of the actor’s best. As it is a Ferrell comedy, you can count on the quotable lines to be aplenty!
The film features Ferrell as Armando Alvarez, a Mexican rancher’s son whose father Miguel believes is more fit to serve as a backup to his brother Raul running his farm than as the one who leads it.
In honor of Ferrell’s going Spanish, here are the best Casa de mi Padre quotes. Check back as we compile more as they arrive!
