Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler are idiots in first The House trailer


Man, I am a big fan of everyone in The House, but judging from the trailer I don’t think those parts are going to add up to much of a whole. Other than the final gag in the trailer almost nothing hits as really funny, just a bunch of gags we’ve seen a million times before in movie with plots that… aren’t idiotic.

I mean there are great comedies out there with dumb plots, but the best have ones that at least pull you in. I can’t even get behind this at all. Ferrell seems to just be doing Frank the Tank again, but possibly dumber. Does any of this stand out as truly funny to anyone?

The House lands on June 30. Place your bets now on it not being around by March 1.
