This was suppose to be a comedy right? The only good acting in this is by Jason Mantzoukas. Other than his role as Frank, everyone just called this one while cashing their checks.

I completely forgot that I'd already seen this movie and wound up checking it out again. Now I know why I forgot about it the first time: while it was funny enough to watch Once, if you're bored and haven't already seen (€@%£) Blockers than yeah, it's fine to pass the time with. However, after a second viewing it loses it charm and you have to question your reasons on viewing choices. Mantzoukus is far more hilarious and fun to watch the arch of His character than that of Poehler and Ferrell.

It's a good laugh flick. I enjoyed it and recommend it, at least once. Will and Amy are funny together and believable in this role. Enjoy

"Overall, I had a good time watching The House. It’s not a good movie, but the acting is good, I mean Ferrell and Poehler carry this movie. The humor lands most of the time and its entertaining when it’s doing it’s thing and just having a good time itself. Otherwise, it has pacing issues, which makes it slow down super slow and it gets really boring and all you want is for it to get back to the casino. It’s nothing new, nothing special and I do think that it hurts it because we’ve seen this before..."

Best for the Wil Ferrel & Amy Poller devoted fans. Turn off your brain before watching. On the plus side, it depicts parents willing to do whatever is necessary to send their daughter to college.

So, sweetie, remember, if you drink a beer, you drink a glass of water, all right? Six-pack of beer, six-pack of water.
-Okay. This just sounds like way too much liquid.
===

I don't understand the difference between, like, rape and date rape.
-Oh, I think date rape is when you go to dinner and a movie, and then rape.
===

Last Tuesday night at approximately 3:14 a.m., vandals spray-painted what appears to be a male penis and accompanying genitalia on the high school football field. It has since been removed.
===

It says right here, in this account, we have $401,000. Jackpot! You missed it!
-No, uh, that says you have a 401K account.

Do this math. You're 40 years old and you go to jail for 20 years. How old are you when you get out?
- Ninety. Hundred.
No. Honey...
- If I have some scratch paper, I can figure it out.
===

That's illegal.
- It's for charity.
Yeah.
- Yeah.
Good. Which charity?
- Uh... Uh... Horse circumcision. Money for psychic kids.
===

My name's not Pal. They call me the Butcher.
===
What future? What are you talking about?
-I wanted you to be my First Lady.
You're never gonna be president. You're too short.

Comm sense need applyin'
Sick of all separation
Rise up from hatred
Black white unite the nation
Amazing, amazing
Amazing, so damn amazing
We live for days of no crime
We need more scholars Deep minds
Less drug dealin'
More leaders shinin'
Plus more father figures

Violence: The violence worth noting is a scene where they chop off a guys finger and blood squirts all over Will Ferrell. Jeremy Renner gets his arm chopped off and blood squirts everywhere. Unnecessary and disgusting.
