Will Ferrell & Amy Poehler Bring Down 'The House'

The must-see comedy for budding interior designers (if you want to convert your pad into a casino).


The House (NC16)

Starring Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler

Directed by Andrew Jay Cohen

Ferrell and Poehler may be the headliners — as cash-strapped parents trying to send their kid to college — but it’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Jason Mantouzaks who steals the thunder as their friend who suggests turning his pad into a mini-integrated resort (replete with a strip joint and a fight club).

The movie is really one big excuse for comedians (hello, Nick Kroll and Michaela Watkins) to goof around and improvise like crazy. (The cameo by a certain Avenger is pretty funny too.)  I’m pretty sure there’s a three-hour gag reel (including Mariah Carey’s cut cameo) collecting dust somewhere in the studio vault. (***)
