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).

2012 Guide Analysis: "When announced, this project was a real head scratcher. Will Ferrell teaming with "Y Tu Mama Tambien" duo Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna on a Spanish-language comedy in the style of a Mexican ‘telenovela’ soap? The nature of the announcement surprised as well - Ferrell’s involvement reportedly being because of a closed-door lawsuit settlement - a story ultimately revealed to be a practical joke.

Then this month came the trailers for it and revealed these guys knew what they were doing - the film is a big ol' spoof perfectly suited to Ferrell's talents, think a low budget and much more tongue in cheek "Desperado". Matt Piedmont, best known for his directorial work on the Funny or Die website, is helming from a script by "The Ladies Man" and former SNL writer Andrew Steele. Should be great fun."
