With the exception of Daddy's Home, which has a sequel on the way that might include Mel Gibson, Will Ferrell comedies have gone from being sure-fire hits to a bunch of maybes. But if there's one thing everybody loves it's when Ferrell reunites with a fellow SNL veteran, and in the case of The House he'll be teaming with Amy Poehler for the first time since Blades of Glory.
Ferrell and Poehler star as a couple who lose their kid's college fund, so to make some cash they start an illegal gambling operation. Score! This actually looks really funny, thanks in part to what looks like a crazy role for Jason Mantzoukas as Ferrell's gambling-addict buddy.
Also starring Ryan Simpkins with Neighbors writer Andrew J. Cohen making his directorial debut, The House opens June 30th.
