From its first trailer, The House looks like another entry in the adults-behaving-like-children genre that includes the likes of Sisters and now Fist Fight. However this one stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler so we can’t be too mad at it yet. The Saturday Night Live alums star as a parents of a teen who gets into her dream college. When they realize they can’t afford tuition they open an illegal casino with the help of Jason Mantzoukas. Andrew Jay Cohen, a writer of the similarly-themed Neighbors movies, directs, and the cast is filled with beloved comedians. Hey, look, there’s Playing House’s Lennon Parham participating in a “fight night.” And there’s Togetherness’ Steve Zissis being accidentally mutilated. The House is due out June 30.
