Will Farrell just doesn’t make good movies. There I said. Love him or hate him, every project he gets attached to has potential to be a hit or a bust. The House falls into the same silly, crazy, doesn’t make sense Farrell kind of story. As realistic as The House could be, no where in the world could you possibly get away with it. Screaming, ruthless aggression, and racist jokes will not be able to turn this lackluster comedy into a blockbuster. The main reason I can’t get behind this film is the town is so small, wouldn’t people eventually run out of money to gamble?? Trying to imitate Casino and any other gambling movies made is a little bit ridiculous, given the statue of most of those movies. The House could be called a spoof of reality, or just another stupid comedy. Either way, it wasn’t worth the price of my free admission ticket.

Were there any male genitalia? As in Get Hard? He’s made a few good films, I think “Stranger than Fiction,” Everything Must Go,” and a handful of others like “Step Brothers” I call guilty pleasures. But he’s been going downhill. I read your post because you gave it a 1/10. LOL a 1/10 that’s brutal!!!
You’d be surprised to know I have never seen Stranger than Fiction, but I have watched Everything Must Go. I always get my hopes up that he’ll give us something awesome, but I always leave disappointed. I am seriously one of the only people on Earth who doesn’t like Step Brothers, although I sometimes wonder if I should give it a second chance. As far as The House goes, it is by far one of the year’s worse because it seriously makes no sense!! ha ha
