The trailer for Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's new movie is here, and we can't stop laughing
It’s 2017, and college is still expensive. And that’s pretty much what drives the plot of Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s new film The House, which just dropped a trailer today.
In the movie, Poehler and Ferrell are husband and wife to a college-bound teen. And to be honest, we didn’t realize how perfect of a pair these two Saturday Night Live alums were until seeing the trailer. But, it should come as no surprise that these two funny people have incredible chemistry.
After realizing that their daughter Alex’s college fund is nonexistent, both Poehler and Ferrell decide to open an illegal casino in their basement to try and raise funds in time.
Of course, this probably won’t pan out the way they expect. Watch and see for yourself.
We’d feel the same way that Poehler and Ferrell do after seeing a bill for fifty thousand dollars, and misinterpreting a 401K. That’s a big chunk of cash, but it’s also pretty realistic. Surely many college graduates will lament about how they’ll be paying off their big tuition bills for years to come.
The film also stars Jason Mantzoukas — and from the looks of it, he’s the one who encourages the two to open up the illegal casino in the first place.
Since Mantzoukas is so charming, we totally believe how they’d fall for this type of sketchy plan. Even a plan that includes “Fight Night” and crime.
The movie is currently set to open on June 30th. We’ll be seeing it on opening weekend.
