Will Ferrell - Will Ferrell: 'Spanish Movie Feels Like A Tarantino'

Will Ferrell's Spanish movie 'Casa de mi Padre' is "Quentin Tarantino-esque".

The comedy actor - who stars alongside Gael Garcie Bernal and Diego Luna in the forthcoming Matt Piedmont-directed project - confesses the movie has been made to look shoddy like a classic telenovela.

He said: "It's like a telenovela and at times it's Quentin Tarantino-esque and it has a little bit of Robert Rodriguez.

"It's all of that mixed in with a poorly made movie where you see mistakes. You can see the boom mic in the reflections of someone's sunglasses."

Despite being purposely made to look bad, the 'Anchorman' star believes the film has a serious edge as it comments on the relationship between the US and Mexico.

He added to Collider.com: "It's just a poorly made Mexican western. That is kind of the idea. At the same time our buddy Andrew Steele, who helps run Funny or Die, wrote a script that is so great. It's surprisingly satirical. We kind of comment on the whole U.S./Mexico relationship, the American stigmas, the Mexican stigmas, and a little bit on the drug policy. All of that stuff. It's kind of this crazy."
