New Line Cinema has unveiled the hilarious trailer for their upcoming comedy The House starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler (who previously worked together on Saturday Night Live and Blades of Glory).
Directed and co-written by Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates and Neighbors scribe Andrew Jay Cohen, The House looks like it could shape up to be one of the funniest movies of the year.
“I’m not going to tell my daughter she can’t go to college,” Ferrell explains. “So we resorted to a life of crime.”
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 neighbour Frank (Jason Mantzoukas), they decide to start an illegal casino in the basement of his house.
