Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell are both titans in the comedy world. From SNL to sitcoms and movies, there aren’t many subjects the duo haven’t covered at some point in their long careers. Running an underground casino might be one of the few left uncovered, but not for long, as a trailer for their new film The House proves.
The duo play proud suburban parents to a daughter who just got accepted into college. The only problem is that they can’t afford to pay her tuition. The natural solution comes from Jason Mantzoukas’s character: run a casino out of their house. Of course things spiral out of control for the bumbling parents, with fight clubs, pool parties, and shakedowns of cheaters all occurring. The rest of the cast is stacked with talent as well: Nick Kroll, Rob Huebel, and Allison Tolman are among the other names to show up. Watch the trailer now:
The House is the feature film directorial debut from Andrew Jay Cohen, who wrote for both Neighbors films and Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates. The House will roll out on June 30.
