Trailer: Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler Open an Underground Casino in ‘The House’

In The House, Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler try and open an underground casino to pay their daughter’s college tuition. As you could expect, things get well out of hand in every direction, and there are stars popping up all around Ferrell and Poehler.

Surprisingly, The House looks pretty funny. Not that Amy Poehler doesn’t still have it, but it’s been a minute since Will Ferrell did anything worth seeing. Check out the trailer:

There are so many directions to go here, and it looks like they explore all the fun gags and stunts that could come with basically turning your home into a mini Vegas. It’s also nice seeing Jason Mantzoukas, well known primarily for his role in the How Did This Get Made? podcast, lighting it up as the idea man. Along with that trio are Allison Tolman, Sam Richardson, Rob Huebel, Michaela Watkins, and all manner of actors you will see and recognize.

The House has a prime mid-summer release date, June 30, which is another positive. Even better than all this, however, is that R rating. Count me in.
