Casa de mi Padre

Synopsis: Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father's ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando's younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), shows up with his new fiancé, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul's success as an international businessman means the ranch's troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul's business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico's most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).

why do you care for the calf,

when all of our money is in the herd?

Esteban, one day my father's ranch

will be passed on to my brother and I.

We will want this calf

and many more like it.

I still say you care more

for the baby cow than for a woman.

Yes, it's true, Manuel,

but only because

I have not found the right woman.

I propose a contest.

Let's race back to the house!

I hope nothing bad happens

on the way home!

I'm riding a horse!

Get down.

This is not good.

He's a drug dealer!

We should ride down and help this man.

And get killed?

Maybe he just wants to talk to him.

Holy mother.

Praying will not help that man.

Perhaps praying is all we can do.

What are we doing here?

Your brother may already be home!

F*ck, yeah!


Come in.

Father, is this a good time?

What do you want?

Pardon, nothing, sir. I was just...

Where have you been?

We were taking the cattle

to a new pasture as you asked.

What took you so long? There is much work

to do around here, Armando!

Is there something wrong, Father?

Leave me alone.


Yes, Father?

Come over here.

Armando, forgive me.

I have many worries.

Please let me help, Father.

You are so much like your mother.

She had such a good heart.

And I know your heart is in the right place,

but like your mother, you are not smart.

You have never been smart.

But I am smart, Father.

Yes, of course, Armando.

For my trouble,

I need someone who is very smart.

If you were truly smart,

you would know that you are dumb.

Look at your fat head.


Raul, your brother.

It's Raul.

You arrange everything with the Japanese

and then give them the merchandise.

- Raul!

- Brother!

We are close brothers.

We have shared so much, man.



Finally, the one with brains has returned!

You're the son I've always loved!

F*ck, I almost forgot.


May I introduce to you Miss Sonia Lopez?

Sonia Lopez.

It's an honor to meet you, sir.

It's nice to meet you.

Let me look at you.

You look amazing.

You must be Armando.

Armando Alvarez, Miss Lopez.

Welcome to our house.

Thank you, but please call me Sonia.

And I can call you Armando?

I would like that, Sonia.

Esteban de los Santos Escobar Chavez.


Thank you, Esmeralda.

You're welcome.


- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

Thank you, sweetheart.

Raul, you have brought so much happiness

to our father.

I am an Alvarez, no?

If only we could keep the drug dealers

off the ranch.

Just this morning,

I was out with Manuel and Esteban,

and we came across a killing.

Why was I not told?

I saw that you had many worries.

They killed a man.

I believe it was by the Onza.

The Onza?

Miss Lopez. Sonia.

How nice to see you.

It's a pleasure that you're here,

because here...

Armando has never done anything

with a woman.

It seems like he's not interested in women.

Is this true, Armando?

Do you have no interest in women?

I would not say that, Miss Lopez.

I just have not found the woman for me.

What would this woman be like?

My woman, Miss Lopez,

must love the land as I do.

More than all the gold in the world,

she must find pleasure

in the scent of the cactus flower.

She would sleep beneath the stars

and let the wild west wind caress her body

and blanket her soul.

Her passions would be my passions,

her dreams, my dreams.

And our love would be a great song,

and the song would be true.

Armando is

a ridiculously hopeless romantic!

What woman would sleep

in the dirt with him, please?


Come over here.


Father, I...

Excuse me. Miss Lopez, Sonia and I,
