Where's Joe Pesci when you need him?

In the upcoming comedy The House, Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler play suburban parents who, when unable to afford their daughter's college tuition, take the obvious route of converting their home into an underground casino.

Both prove to be far in over their heads as their cookie-cutter home is run overrun by gangsters, strippers and fighting. They're not quite as comfortable in the gambling underworld as Robert De Niro and Sharon Stone were in Casino.

Watch the very first trailer, above.

This will be Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's third time working together, having appeared on Saturday Night Live and in Blades of Glory as dueling figure skaters. Jason Mantzoukas (The League) also has a starring role as their reckless neighbor who convinces them to start the casino. 

For all their effort, let's all hope their daughter decides not to become an Art major.
