I just read reviews are not going to be released until after the movie is out.
Someone said that is almost always a bad sign, but Captain Underpants disproved that this year when it opened cold and gained 85% on RT

This came out on streaming this week and we watched last night. This is a bad movie....

Yes, The House is a comedy full of funny people, but the setup for the movie is so unbelievably silly. A family loses the scholarship promised to their daughter so they open a casino as a way to earn money for her schooling. Wut?! The family's mansion is shown throughout the movie so clearly they have a lot of money, even though they said "we can barely afford our mortgage". Then move into a smaller house! You are empty nesters. How about you get financial aid? Nope. Too logically. Instead they try taking out a person loan and the bank simply tells them "not happening". They just gave up after that and do the casino idea.

Quick list of dumb things from the movie
-Will Ferrell's character is literally scared of numbers, if people say numbers he gets afraid, that is their excuse for not having a college fund
-They won 50% of her tuition at the casino and tried to double up, losing it all
-Private casino makes $500k over a summer in a small town
-Amy Poehler/Will Ferrell are creepy close to their only kid. "No...don't go see your friends, stay home and watch tv with us. You are my best friend"
-The parents ditch daughter for an entire summer and no one cares
-City council/cop entering a house with no warrant...from the 2nd story?
-City council takes $500k, they take it back. No one gets in real trouble

In a summer full of meh comedies, this one doesn't bring anything extra.

It had some funny moments, but it was awful.

I would have rather seen Ferrell play 'Gator' from The Other Guys. Everyone knows Gator don't play no shit.
