Watch: Will Ferrell Is Armando Alvarez In Teaser Trailer For 'Casa De Mi Padre'

Even though the full trailer leaked a long time ago, it seems Lionsgate’s hispanic distribution offshoot Pantelion Films wants to forget that ever happened, and are starting over with a teaser trailer that only gives a small taste of the outrageous awesomeness of “Casa De Mi Padre.”

Starring the inspired pairing of Will Ferrell and Gael García Bernal, the film is essentially an exagerrated send up of Mexican soaps, and centers on Armando (Ferrell), a financially struggling ranch owner who is seemingly saved by his younger brother Raul (Bernal), who is a successful international businessman. But when Armando falls for Raul’s fiancée Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez), Raul’s shady dealings come to the fore and well, shit happens. Yes, this will largely be in Spanish and also feature a title song performed by Christina Aguilera, so yes, over the top greatness.

“Casa De Mi Padre” will open on March 16th and will head into theaters with an R-rating, giving us further hope no comedy stone will be left unturned. [Apple/embed via RopeOfSilicon]
