''Casa de mi Padre'' (''House of My Father'' or simply ''My Father's House'') is a parody of Spanish {{soap opera}}s, starring Creator/WillFerrell, directed by Matt Piedmont and written by Andrew Steele. (With all three reuniting for the similarly absurdist, equally specific SpiritualSuccessor ''Series/TheSpoilsOfBabylon''.) It tells the tale of Armando Álvarez, who works on his father's ranch. However, they are in financial trouble. The whole family counts on his brother Raúl to fix their financial woes. It's also all in [[UsefulNotes/SpanishLanguage Spanish]], despite the star never speaking a word of Spanish before shooting.
