"The House" → It Drowns!

Film Synopsis: A dad (Will Ferrell) convinces his friends to start an illegal casino in his basement after he & his wife (Amy Poehler) spend their daughter's college fund.

I won't say that this was a totally unfunny film, but to have two great comedians in a movie together, you would never suspect that it would be a disaster- or even a flop, right? Actors can make terrible films. That is the perception in the entertainment business- whether you have an Oscar or not, that particular actor/actress can make a movie that bombs like this one did, to me.

I'm NOT saying that you need to go & rent this film on Red box or wait for it to come out on DVD, fire-stick, and whatnot. It was not a terrible film but I feel with comedy movies it can go either way- either you try to be funny or it just comes natural. 

When it comes natural and you act and say something stupid as in spoof movies, that is off the wall hilarious! Both Amy & Will were a riot in the film, but the overall film sucked. I did not laugh uncontrollable or laughed at all during it. This is a chuckle here; chuckle there type of film. 

If you do want to see it in theater, I can assure you that no matter what state that you are in, you can be guaranteed a seat OR you can choose to see it a matinee.

It is not something that you have to rush out and see instantly unless you really want to or you are a huge fan of one of the two main actors in the film. 

When I saw the trailer, I laughed, but in the movie- no. How could that possibly be? The same scenes that were in the trailer was in the actual movie! I don't get that- not at all. This was just an average movie with a light sense of humor in it. Nothing spectacular!
