The new trailer, which deserves an extra emphasis on just how unsafe if it is for work, sees Poehler and Ferrell's characters as parents struggling to pay for their daughter's college tuition at a prestigious school. Enter Jason Mantzoukas as the man with the answer to all of their financial problems and it is time to build a casino in the basement!
The film appears to capture Poehler and Ferrell's over the top comedic touches, especially in the moments which see Ferrell accidentally cutting off another man's finger. It's reminiscent of some of Get Hard's raunchier scenes, which The House promises to deliver by the boat load as a strip club and drugs are all going to come into play for this movie.
