Will Ferrell Casa De Mi Padre

Based on concept and talent alone, we're going to say that the upcoming Spanish-language comedy "Casa De Mi Padre" might be our favorite comedy of 2012.

Starring the awesome 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 shit gets loco. If you saw the trailer that leaked last year, you know why we're excited. This thing looks as deliciously over-the-top as anything Ferrell has ever done, and now, there will be one more note to push it further.

Along with a poster and image from the film you see above, IGN revealed that none other than four-octave singer and multiple Grammy winner Christina Aguilera will belt out the title track to the movie. In any other instance, we'd be covereing our ears, but for a movie that is already pitching its genre elements for laughs, this should work pretty perfectly.

And we won't have to wait long. "Casa De Mi Padre" opens on March 16th.
