When Scott and Kate Johansen’s daughter gets into the college of her dreams it’s cause for celebration. That is, until Scott and Kate learn that the scholarship they were counting on didn’t come through, and they’re now on the hook for tuition they can’t begin to afford. With the help of their friend and neighbor Frank also in need of a major payday they decide to open an illegal casino in his suburban house, risking everything together on a Vegas-style bacchanal where money flows, inhibitions are checked at the door, and all bets are off.

CommentsXp Best movie ever!
Calum Hutton It's a good bad... and worth a popcorn matinée. While it's easy to lament what could have been...
makenzimay This movie is hilarious. My roommates and I have watched it twice and we all laughed our butts off each time we watched it. Packed full of jokes. "Why are you wearing sunglasses inside?" ".....Because my futures so bright?" Freaking hilarious! Give this movie a chance, it's worth it.
AaronRon Look it is completely brainless humor.... So funny! Like all great comedy you either love it or hate it. I loved it!!!!
Floated2 The House is another comedy film starring Will Ferrell. This time around he's starring with Amy Poehler, and this film doesn't quite come to full fruition and live up to their comedy chops. It is quite generic and as bad as many of the critic reviews were saying. As some reviews stated, the film feels as an overlong Saturday Night Live sketch. It is quite short in runtime (little over 80 mins excluding end credits). Will Ferrell has starred in many better comedies as he is better than what was given here, as this feels more so of a film we would see Ed Helms star in.Overall the comedy just isn't funny and feels very forced. Really most of the jokes fall flat and are over the top with bad impressions from the characters. It is quite predictable but that isn't the worst of it. Movies based on gambling and casino's can be exciting and fun, but the House doesn't come out as such. A lot of it feels as if Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler are trying too hard for laughs, and it just isn't funny. Some decent scenes but in the end, we can't help but feel that this movie will be forgotten.One bright side was a very small cameo type role from Jeremy Renner in the end.
pepperhead1 However, the line "math gives him a neurosis and numbers make him nervous" is one of my favorites lines, ever!!
