Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler play parents who open an in-house casino to raise money for their daughter’s college. While the premise is interesting and the cast is populated with comic pros, the script is slim on truly funny situations or even good punchlines. Ferrell and Poehler work hard (and obviously improv a lot), but little of it lands. Director Andrew Jay Cohen has written some semi-successful comedies (most notably “Neighbors”) and this first big-screen directorial effort has plenty of energy. Just little of it generates laffs. The millennials in the theatre seemed to enjoy it, but I found it silly and stupid.
