THE HOUSE Film Release and a $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!

This post is in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures.

When you have a child entering her senior year in college and then see a trailer like THE HOUSE you immediately perk up and are engaged!  I can’t wait to see THE HOUSE which opens on June 30th.  Just from the trailer I was laughing at this fantastically hilarious comedy, where two parents (played by Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) will do almost anything to ensure that their daughter can attend college, when they find out they don’t have enough savings to send her.

On June 30th, this house is open for business!

I totally can relate to these characters!  When our daughter was a sophomore I literally found every book and practice test for the SAT that I could.  Then I proceeded to make her take them all over the next year and a half!  If I found a teaser test online with 3 questions… I made her do it, LOL.  By darn it that girl was going to get herself a 4 year scholarship if I had anything to do with it.  And lone behold this Mama made good on that, and Amber got a National Merit Scholarship based on her PSAT score.  Although when I look back, opening a casino in our home may have been a better route (kidding, I kid!!)  We have 😉  I mean SHE HAS one more year to go!

ABOUT THE HOUSE:

After Scott and Kate Johansen (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) lose their daughter Alex’s college fund, they become desperate to earn it back so she can pursue her dream of attending a university.  With the help of their neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas), they decide to start an illegal casino in his house.

The comedy “The House” also stars Nick Kroll (“Vacation,” TV’s “Kroll Show”), Allison Tolman (TV’s “Fargo”), Michaela Watkins (TV’s “Transparent”), Ryan Simpkins (“Arcadia”), Jessie Ennis (TV’s “Veep” and “Better Call Saul”), Rob Huebel (“Horrible Bosses 2,” TV’s “Transparent”), Cedric Yarbrough (TV’s “Reno 911!”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Town,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Arrival”).

Rated R

    Driving her all over LA for her auditions, shootings, had to drive myself crazy trying to make to her appointments in time coming from Orange County, traffic is crazy!

  2. Michelle C says:

    My kids are into martial arts and I have spent a crazy amount of time driving them to the studio where they study and watching them spar and test for belts!

  3. Heidi B says:

    I drove to 8 stores to find these certain tennis shoes in size, color and style for him! Friends thought I was nuts but he thought I was the greatest!

  4. I don’t have children but I do have two little nieces who I love doting on! Three years ago they had seen Frozen for the first time and were obsessed so for Halloween they dressed up as Elsa and Anna and I ended up going as Olaf when I took them around for trick or treating. 🙂

  5. Lisa Brown says:

    I have never gone overboard when helping my kids, I am reserved and cautious, but did all I could at the time to help them realize their goals.

  6. mami2jcn says:

    I don’t know if I have a funny experience. I have stayed up nights when my daughter was sick, just watching her to make sure she was okay.

  7. Kelly D says:

    I worked hard with my daughter selling Girl Scout cookies this year so she could get the prize she wanted.

  8. Julie Wood says:

    My kids wanted to go to a Space camp, but I did not have any money to send them. So I got a job standing out in front of a business handing out sales pamphlets and it was hard work and very cold outside! But, I made enough money to send my kids to camp!

  9. Jessica To says:

    I drove my son a half hour away to play basketball on a friendly team rather than let him play on one a few minutes away that was really competitive.

  10. Janet W. says:

    The most overboard I’ve ever gone for my daughter was when she had to sell gift wrap paper as a school fundraiser. I think we knocked on every single door in our entire neighborhood trying to sell gift wrap paper from a catalog.

  11. Ellie Wright says:

    I have gotten out on the field and pitched to my grandsons for batting practice, and also batted for them to practice pitching. I’m sure I look like a deranged grandma doing it, but they’ll always remember grandma playing baseball with them.

  12. I drove my kids out of town every weekend for their games.

  13. courtney b says:

    I walked a mile from the beach to get my kids their favorite swim toy.

    aggh what I do for those kids lol

    thanks!

  14. Betsy Barnes says:

    I bought over 100 pizza kits from a school fundraiser because my son wanted to win a special mountain bike. I could have just gotten him the bike, however, he really wanted to win!

  15. Elena says:

    I had garage sales every weekend to get enough money for my son’s favorite summer camp

  16. Gina M says:

    I enrolled my son in drum lessons at a super young age because he had shown a lot of interest in music. Turns out that was way too young for him because he started to hate lessons and practicing. We felt silly we enrolled him so early, and decided to back off for a bit.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. Sarah Hall says:

    We drove all over our area one night looking for chicken feathers for a project that our daughter had for school. She didn’t tell us about it until late in the evening so it was dark as we drove from farm to farm trying to find one with chickens.

  35. Mary Cloud says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever really went overboard supporting either of my kids but if there was something they had a passion about I would do everything to help them achieve their dream.

  36. Emily Smith says:

    My husband and I bought a ton of cookie dough from our son for a fundraiser so that he would be the top seller in his class and get an awesome prize. I don’t even remember what it was now. lol

  37. amy stonger says:

    My son is extremely intelligent and often faces disadvantages because of it at school. This past year I had to meet with his teachers multiple times to have his reading expectations lowered to a more reasonable level. He’s in 5th grade and they wanted him to read books at a 11th grade level. It just wasn’t fair and I couldn’t stand idly by.

  38. Dan Dykstra says:

    I went overboard trying to help my son with his basketball skills. Training camp, hoops in the yard etc.

    I totally went dumpster diving for aluminum cans just so the entire class would get a pizza party.

  42. Erika W. says:

    I don’t think I’ve gone overboard with my kids in anything. I’ve seen other parents go crazy though. We had a cheer mom go to all the local businesses to get ad sales for her daughter when the girls were supposed to do it themselves.

  43. Jilliann M says:

    I don’t know about overboard but I worked an extra part time job to pay for activities for my kids

  44. I don’t think I”ve gone overboard to help my kiddos yet, they are little.

  45. James Robert says:

    I’ve gotten razzed quite a bit for helping with their fundraisers by taking them to work with me.

  46. Susan Smith says:

    I bought so many boxes of Girl Scout cookies so my daughter could go to camp. At the time I was on a weight loss program so I couldn’t even eat them.

  47. Chrissy says:

    I don’t think I’ve gone too overboard yet with my daughter but I will say she just turned two and I’ve already signed her up for gymnastics, soccer, swim lessons and piano so as I type that out I guess maybe I have gone a bit overboard…

  48. tammy shelton says:

    Moved to Florida so we could go to Disney World whenever we want to.

  49. Susan Christy says:

    Is spending $300 on a baseball bat for a 9 year old going overboard?!?

  50. Rosie says:

    I was teaching a tween to sew, and she wanted to make something she loved but was too hard. A little “elf” would rip out the stitches at night and fix everything, to pick up where we ended the day before. She never knew she had a little “helper”!

  51. I spent hours cooking my mom her favorite meal for her birthday.

  52. Anita Duvall says:

    I drove my 15 year old daughter and 3 of her friends halfway across the country to see Green Day in Concert. Then they talked me into getting into the Mosh Pit with them. I thought I would be crushed!

  53. monique s says:

    I have done that with my childs dance efforts with costume prep and driving all over to competitions and rehersals

  54. Paol Trenny says:

    I was showing my daughters how to change a flat tire when I forgot my own notes that my hubby has written down for me Major flop.

  55. Erin Madigan says:

    I once stood in line all night to get tickets to a concert for my nephew and I.

  56. I’ve never gone overboard but I think it’s super sweet when parents do(as long as it’s not harmful to anyone of course).

  57. Shemp DeYoung says:

    So many early morning and late night trips across Texas. so many

  58. Tracy Robertson says:

    I don’t have a child, but I went overboard with a letter writing campaign to help my boyfriend get out of an expensive citation he had, and it worked.

  59. Holly Kennedy says:

    Baby’s first birthday. And I lost my camera with the pictures.

  60. Breanne says:

    I don’t have any children yet.

  61. latanya says:

    signing my son up for sport activities and then tell my husband the week of that he has his first practice that week

  62. chickie brewer says:

    I cannot remember a time that I did… Maybe my mind has blocked those memories.

  63. I tend to go overboard daily to help my children reach little or large dreams, it has become joke–don’t tell Mom you want to do anything unless you really do ’cause she’ll make it happen for you.

  64. Marilyn Nawara says:

    I sold over 200 subs to family and co-workers when my son was in grade school so he could win a cheap $20 prize for selling the most subs. I ended up having to take a day off work to deliver them all.

  65. Breanna Pollard says:

    I’VE NEVER GONE CRAZY OVERBOARD BUT I ALWAYS MAKE SURE I SUPPORT.

  66. Lyndsey R. says:

    I would have to say I go overboard for every single one of my sons birthdays. I overdue it but it always ends up being super memorable.

    Many trips in rain, snow, and sleet to get to play practices.
