Ferrel and Poehler play a married couple who can't afford their daughter's tuition fee, hence they start an underground casino for a solution.
Will Ferrell's and Amy Poehler's characters in new comedy "The House" have a unique way to support their daughter's dreams. Realizing that they can't afford their daughter's tuition college, they join casino business to earn money. The movie has got a trailer which offers a good look at the family's hilarious life.
In the first part of the trailer, Scott (Ferrell), Kate (Poehler) and their daughter Alex (Ryan Simpkins) burst in happiness as Alex is accepted in Buckley University. However, the couple later realizes that they can't afford Alex's tuition fee. "Alex thinks we can afford her tuition and we can't," says Kate. "We've got to lie, 'cause that's what parents do," Scott replies.
Enters Scott's best friend Frank, who offers a rather crazy solution for the couple. "I have a way for you guys to make four years tuition in one month. Underground casino," says Frank. He adds that if they want to make money like Vegas, they have to look like Vegas. And so the couple joins Frank's underground business, all for the sake of their beloved daughter.
