Expecting a decent comedy since it starred Ferrell and Poehler but at best an off-the-wall farce. It has a story and a few good jokes but poorly delivered with weak punch lines. The best scene showed the vandalism to the High School football field that flashed on and off too quickly. So-so silly watch.

An average comedy that I would only watch once.

The House is a funny comedy movie that doesn't make you think and simply serves the laughs and ridiculousness to you on a platter! Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell are also a great acting duo that were made to play a married couple gone wild.

An average but good comedy with actors who have you laughing for most of the movie. Other than that, the House didn't really have a strong or interesting storyline, it was mostly just about the silly comedy.

There were a few funny moments and dialogue but overall it was forced humor.

This movie was so bad, I can't believe they actually got paid to do it.

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.
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.

Be free
Live, feel the hearts

Gotta break codes of silence
Heal more Stray from violence
No more police

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.
