Goofs

Officer Chandler questions why Frank is walking in the woods. However as previously established in the film, the woods run alongside Frank's property - so it would make more sense for Frank to question Officer Chandler's being there. See more »

Terrible, Awful Film...and I am a Will Farrell fan!
2 July 2017 | by TheTruthDoorSee all my reviews

Don't believe the positive reviews about "The House", they are bought and paid for reviews.

The House is a god awful, terrible film. It has absolutely nothing going for it. The acting is bad, the plot is terrible.

Nobody laughed during the entire film....nobody.

I am a Will Ferrell fan and I like Amy Poehler, I like them both but I just cannot lie to you about this film.

It is so bad that it may ruin both of their acting careers.....it is that bad.

Whew....it stinks.
