The House (15)

A middle-aged couple chooses an unconventional route to send a beloved daughter to college in Andrew Jay Cohen's raucous comedy. Scott Johansen (Will Ferrell) and his wife Kate (Amy Poehler) are proud of their only child Alex (Ryan Simpkins) and would love to realise her dreams of higher education. Unfortunately, the Johansens don't have enough money in the bank to pay for Alex's college tuition. Their financial adviser Dawn (Allison Tolman) has no quick solutions and it looks like teenager Alex will have to miss out...

All Rights Reserved.Scott's best friend Frank Theodorakis (Jason Mantzoukas), who has been threatened with divorce by his wife Raina (Michaela Watkins) over his gambling habit, comes up with an ingenious solution: the Johansens should set up an illegal casino in their basement. As Frank knows only too well, the house always wins, so Scott and Kate should be able to make up the difference for Alex's college fund in no time at all. Various residents including neighbour Reggie Henderson (Cedric Yarbrough) and local cop Officer Chandler (Rob Huebel) gamble under the Johansens' roof and lose. However, not everyone in the community is thrilled about Scott and Kate's illegal operation.

Reviews of The House are embargoed until Friday June 30. Please check back later in the week for our full review.
