It really doesn’t matter how popular a show was back in the day - as long as it’s a vaguely recognizable title with a good cast, you’re guaranteed a certain level of results. “SWAT” lasted only one year, memorable mostly for its theme song, and yet the movie version grabbed $37 million back in the summer of 2003. Nine years later, a similar opening has greeted “21 Jump Street,” the television show of which ran for four forgettable years in the late '80s and is more famous for spawning megastar Johnny Depp than for having any great story lines or standout moments.

Hello all, greetings from the humid climes of Austin, Texas! I am reporting your weekly in theaters to you while taking a break from watching movies about rape, that take place in the woods, or are about long forgotten musical icons. Pro-tip: next year, submit a film that's about a camping trip gone awry, with at least one rape of any kind, co-starring, like, one of the members of Ace of Base or something. Let's sign some checks people! No, but the fest has been super fun and crazy as most fests are and should be. Also, I'm very busy with plans to start a charitable foundation for independent filmmakers who are in desperate need of tripods. The lack of tripods is an important issue that is facing our independent films today. But since you are not here (or are you?) let's get down to what's in theaters this weekend! This one is gonna be quick and dirty, 'cause I gots to go watch a crazy documentary.

Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) is but a humble Mexican rancher, unlucky in love and only his father’s second favorite son after Raul (Diego Luna). When the latter comes home bearing an Escalade and a smoking hot fiancée, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez), it’s easy to see why Armando is considered the greater disappointment, but Raul’s homecoming brings with it trouble involving notorious drug dealer La Onza (Gael García Bernal), leaving the family’s black sheep to rise to the occasion.

SXSW kicks off today, and the sunny, BBQ roasted city of Austin is probably the perfect place for "Casa De Mi Padre" to making its premiere. The odd ball comedy stars Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, Nick Offerman and Genesis Rodriguez in a riff on Mexican telenovelas, that tells the story of rancher who falls in love with his brother's fiancé and winds up in a war with a drug lord. In other words, it's exactly what you might expect from Will Ferrell except here's the thing -- it's all in Spanish.

While Sundance still gets the headlines, the last few years have seen the film strand of South By Southwest, the Austin, Texas cultural conference, become just as vital to the movie world as Robert Redford's baby. The past few festivals alone witnessed some of the best movies of their respective years debut, from low-budget indies like "The Puffy Chair," "Beeswax," "Tiny Furniture" and "Cold Weather" to more mainstream fare like "I Love You Man," "Adventureland" and "Bridesmaids," to international genre hits like "Kill List," "Attack The Block" and "Monsters."
