The House Trailer

"You wanna make money like Vegas, you gotta look like Vegas." Warner Bros has unveiled a trailer for an upcoming comedy titled The House, where two parents decide to turn their home into an underground, illegal casino to make money to send their daughter to college. Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler star as the parents, with Nick Kroll, Jason Mantzoukas, Allison Tolman, Ryan Simpkins, Sam Richardson, Rob Huebel and Michaela Watkins. This looks hilarious, probably one of my most anticipated comedies this year. The concept is original and fun, and Ferrell & Poehler are the perfect choice for this. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Andrew Jay Cohen's The House, direct from YouTube:

After Scott and Kate Johansen (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) lose their daughter Alex's college fund, they become desperate to earn it back so she can pursue her dream of attending a university. With the help of their neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas), they decide to start an illegal casino in the basement of his house. The House is directed by filmmaker Andrew Jay Cohen, making his feature directorial debut after a few short films previously. The screenplay is written by Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien. Warner Bros will release The House in theaters everywhere starting on June 30th this summer. Excited to see this?

    I have profited 104 thousand dollars previous year by doing an online job a­­n­­d I manage that by w­o­r­k­i­n­g part time f­­o­­r few hrs a day. I followed a business opportunity I came across online and I am thrilled that i made so much money on the side. It's so beginner friendly and I am just so thankful that I found out about it. Here’s what I do... STATICTAB.COM/r2tyhgi

    The last part really got me good. I'm in.

      Yea I was skeptical until that last scene. Those 3 actors look great together.

    It does look a bit offensive to those who are struggling to study and have no money to do it... If it has to be a satire, it should be looking better than this ...
    • Or, more than likely, they’ll identify and find it very funny. And cat owners. Cat owners will find it very offensive as well - especially the black ones.

        To each their own. I wouldn't like to spoil what is already spoiled. Of course, let everybody enjoy it ...
  • I love what this comedy is doing...not putting any of the funny parts in the trailer.
  • RAW_D
    This looks stupid. And not in a funny way.

    I like the trailer. Ferrel's comedy is getting repetitive though. I mean he should stop yelling. The last scene is hilarious .
    I hope McKay and Ferrell decide to make some more films.
