Common Sense Note

Parents need to know although Casa de mi Padre is a Will Ferrell comedy, it's probably too offbeat/odd to attract his usual fans (especially the kids who love Elf), though older teens may eventually see it as a cult classic. It's spoken almost entirely in Spanish (with English subtitles), and content is very mature throughout -- there are highly stylized violent shootouts with lots of blood and dead bodies, plus a lengthy sex scene with naked bottoms shown -- all played for laughs. Strong language (mostly in the English subtitles, but some also spoken in English) includes "f--k," "s--t," and more. A major character deals cocaine, and the drug is sampled onscreen. Characters are also seen drinking and smoking in a bar.

Sexual Content

A long sex scene plays like a parody of ordinary sex scenes (it's intended to be funny). A man and a woman appear naked; bare bottoms are seen many times, but no other sensitive body parts are shown. Several female characters are shown wearing skimpy outfits for men's pleasure.

Violence

The movie's climax is a highly stylized, gory shootout with gallons of blood and dead bodies. Over the course of the rest of the movie, minor characters are murdered in gruesome ways, and there are threats and arguments.

Language

Strong language is spoken (mostly) in Spanish and subtitled in English. Words include "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," "d--k," "damn," "hell," "goddamn," and more.

Social Behavior

The movie's big question has to do with choosing whether or not to fight -- and whether not fighting indicates cowardice. The movie seems to say that, when your family is at stake, it becomes necessary to stand up and fight.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
