Creative solutions aren't always good ones.
That's a big takeaway from the latest trailer for "The House." Released by Roadshow Thursday, the preview showcases stars Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell, who play Kate and Scott, a married couple determined to send their daughter to the college of her dreams, even though they can't afford it. With their neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas) offering guidance, the two decide to run a gambling operation out of their basement. Of course, running an underground casino isn't easy, and all sorts of crazy hijinks ensue.
The trailer demonstrates just how insane the situation quickly becomes. As the casino takes off, their daughter grows suspicious, law enforcement starts breathing down their necks, and a little intimidation takes a bloody turn. Not surprisingly, things get a little NSFW in the preview, so keep that in mind when you watch below.
