The comedy remake Padre No Hay Más Que Uno (Father Is The Only One) earned an estimated $1.8m and boosts Sony Pictures Releasing International’s (SPRI) box office in Spain for local titles to $26m and 60% market share.

SPRI’s other local releases in the market this year include: Carlos Therón’s comedy I Can Quit Whenever I Want (Lo Dejo Cuando Quiera) on $12.8m, Pedro Almodóvar’s Cannes selection and Toronto-bound drama Pain And Glory (Dolor y Gloria) on $6.5m (Sony Classics will release it in the US on Oct. 4), and Juana Macías’ divorce comedy Under The Same Roof (Bajo el Mismo Techo) on $4.1m.

Santiago Segura wrote, directed and produced Padre No Hay Más Que Uno asnd stars as a “marido-cuñao” man who knows nothing about housework or childcare. When his wife, played by Toni Acosta (Empowered, Yucatán, My Big Night), goes on a trip, he is forced to stay home alone and take care of his five children.

The film is a remake of the popular Argentinian comedy Ten Days Without Mom (Mamá se Fue de Viaje) sold by FilmShark's owned The Remake Co . SPIP produced with Bowfinger International Pictures, which Segura runs with María Luisa Gutiérrez.

When Screen broke the news of the project in January, Segura said, “I’ve always felt challenged by the idea of making a movie that could be enjoyed by all audiences, without age restrictions. I wanted to do this within the only genre I feel comfortable working – the comedy – and get laughs from the audience in return. And here we are, in my first family comedy.”

The three-time Goya Award-winning content creator is an iconic figure in Spain’s comedy scene, and directed and starred as a crude police officer in the hit Torrente action comedy franchise.
