House, The (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Combo Pack)
When Scott and Kate Johansen’s daughter gets into the college of her dreams it’s cause for celebration. That is, until Scott and Kate (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) learn that the scholarship they were counting on didn’t come through, and they’re now on the hook for tuition they can’t begin to afford. With the help of their friend and neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas)—also in need of a major payday—they decide to open an illegal casino in his suburban house, risking everything together on a Vegas-style bacchanal where money flows, inhibitions are checked at the door, and all bets are off.]]>

The combination of Ferrell and Poehler suggests that “The House” would provide a reasonable share of laughs. The premise is far fetched, but that’s not the problem. The writing is weak, with so-called jokes falling flat and other attempts to push the comedy envelope squirm-inducing. The idea offers possibilities for sharp parody, but it never materializes. What’s on screen should have been an early draft, sent back to the writers to punch up the comedy. Making matters worse, the film has the feel of improvised schtick, with the cast going off on their own tangents, veering from what’s on the page. This sabotages the film, with director Andrew Jay Cohen failing to keep his stars in check. Lacking wit and satirical insight, the movie is simply not fun.
Bonus materials on the 2-disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital release include deleted scenes, extended and alternate scenes, gag reel, and 2 behind-the-scenes featurettes.
