Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell play a married couple who have overextended on their big home.
So naturally they’re relying on their only child to make good and fix them up. There’s no denying she’s bright, having earned a public-funded scholarship to university, except this year, the town’s decided the money is better served building a gigantic pool. Desperate to pay the fees, they team up with a compulsive gambler neighbour (Jason Mantzoukas), whose house gets turned into the wildest illegal casino the suburb has ever seen. Poehler and Ferrell get plenty of comic mileage as the bored parents, who find a new calling in this ill-advised venture. Add Mantzoukas’ madcap turn, plus a willingness to roll the dice on some rude nods to Scorsese’s Casino, and you’ve got all the ingredients for a winning comedy.
