After realizing that they can't possibly afford the tuition for the prestigious college their daughter plans to attend, a married couple (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) team up with their eccentric neighbor (Jason Mantzoukas) to make money by running an illegal casino in the suburbs. Needless to say, things quickly spiral out of control as they deal with unruly guests while trying to keep their operation hidden from the police. Nick Kroll, Jeremy Renner, and Allison Tolman co-star in this comedy, which was directed by Andrew Jay Cohen.
