‘The House’ Trailer: Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell Start a Casino in Their Basement

The first trailer for The House is about what you’d expect based on the plot description: Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell need to raise money to send their kid to college, so they start an illegal casino / underground fight club in their basement, various hijinks ensue, etc. It looks pleasant enough, and the combo of Poehler and Ferrell (with a handful of other funny people) should make for a solid comedy — though this one looks a bit safe, which is surprising considering that The House comes from the minds behind Neighbors.

Perhaps no TV icon had been so influenced by Hillary Clinton as Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope, lending this week’s election an extra degree of sadness. Now, a writer from the series pens a letter to America in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, reminding women “You are going to run this country, and this world, very soon.”

It might surprise you to learn that Amy Poehler had never won an Emmy before last night, but less so that she’d make history doing it. Ahead of the full ceremony next Sunday, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey both took home Emmy awards for their SNL hosting, and made history in the process.

Time and time again, the SNL cut-for-time sketches week to week have proven among the funniest, if weirdest the series has to offer, particularly at the hands of Kyle Mooney. Another deleted bit from Amy Poehler (and Tina Fey)’s 2015 closer doesn’t quite continue the trend, but “Christmas at Nana’s” is worth a watch all the same.

What’s the point in letting former SNL cast members guest host if you aren’t going to resurrect sketches and characters from back when they were on the show? We saw this a few weeks ago when Tracy Morgan gently poked our nostalgia buttons with the return of Brian Fellows and it happened again last night with the return of Bronx Beat. However, this wasn’t just a showcase for co-guest host Amy Poehler — it also saw the return of the great Maya Rudolph to the SNL stage. And there was no way the evening’s other guest host, Tina Fey, was going to sit out this chance to reunite with her few fellow Studio 8H veterans.

SNL Unites Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton With Amy Poehler’s Hillary Clinton (and Adds Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin for Good Measure)

It’s a testament to the staying power of certain public figures that they’ve been played by more than one SNL cast member over the years. People like Hillary Clinton, the former First Lady turned former Senator turned former Secretary of State turned current Democratic Presidential frontrunner, linger on long past Saturday Night Live cast rotations. So what is the show to do when one of its guest hosts used to play a vital and very much in the public eye politician back in the day? Put her on stage with the current version, of course.

Dual guest hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought a lot of magic to last night’s episode of SNL, but the former cast members and Sisters co-stars probably hit their peak with a sort-of-music-video about their “Dope Squad,” aka the team of perfectly ordinary people who make their lives better on a daily basis. And while they may be wearing tight leather outfits, wielding weapons, and posing dramatically in front of post-apocalyptic imagery, the subject matter is far more mundane…and then Amy Schumer shows up.

SNL delivers the greatest Christmas gift of all by inviting both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the 2015 finale together, the way nature intended. With their new comedy Sisters in theaters this weekend (take that, Star Wars), the duo hit the SNL stage in top form with a handful of surprise guests, a couple of classic characters and a whole, whole lot of joy. Read on for our ranking of this week’s sketches from best to worst.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Use ‘Star Wars’ Action Figures to Convince You to See ‘Sisters’

In a bit of clever Jedi mind-trick-thinking, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night to promote Sisters…using Star Wars toys. Fey and Poehler’s new comedy has the unfortunate timing of opening the same weekend as The Force Awakens, but rather than bemoan their luck, the duo have fully embraced it, from satirizing J.J. Abrams’ behind-the-scenes featurette to telling everyone who asks that they’re totally not worried about it.
