It has been too long since we’ve had Will Ferrell doing what Will Ferrell does best: taking a sometimes mild-mannered, occasionally arrogant character, often struggling with a few buried demons, and placing him in a sink-or-swim scenario. The House looks like a return to form. Also starring Amy Poehler, the duo are an ordinary suburban couple with a daughter about to go off to college. There’s just one snag, they’ve spent her college fund. The solution? Open an illegal casino in the basement for the bored neighbourhood residents. Watch Ferrell go from his The Other Guys Detective Gamble persona to ‘Gator’ and let the good times roll. There are currently no ratings.
