Goofs

When Scott has trouble recalling the combination to the safe, Kate encourages him by saying that he can remember 4 sequential numbers. When Scott does remember the combination it is 8 numbers plus #. Then the combination punched in to open the safe beeps 7 times, which means only 6 numbers were entered with the # sign. See more »

If you do as well as Will Ferrell does in movies and Amy Poehler does on T.V. then you can afford to make the mistake of starring in this film
30 June 2018 | by jackgdemossSee all my reviews

I am starting to realize what modern day slapstick looks like and it turns out I dislike it just as much as any other form of slapstick comedy. Fortunately, The House does not rely too heavily on it. At most times ridiculous, hilarious performances by Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell carried this film to its watchable rating.
