Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler Open THE HOUSE On Blu-ray This October

Get lit, win big. Then go home to the kids when “The House” arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 10. The comedy stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler in their first big-screen pairing. Andrew Jay Cohen makes his feature film directorial debut with “The House.” When Scott and Kate Johansen’s daughter gets into the college of her dreams it’s cause for celebration. That is, until Scott and Kate (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) learn that the scholarship they were counting on didn’t come through, and they’re now on the hook for tuition they can’t begin to afford. With the help of their friend and neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas)—also in need of a major payday—they decide to open an illegal casino in his suburban house, risking everything together on a Vegas-style bacchanal where money flows, inhibitions are checked at the door, and all bets are off.
