Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis
Comedian Jason Sudeikis plays the role of an out of luck drug dealer who is forced to transport a load of wacky tobacco over the Mexican border into the US, else face the consequences from a drug lord. To alleviate suspicion from the authorities, he assembles a "cast" of misfits to play his pretend and "very innocent law abiding family" as they travel in their recreational camper with the illegal substance. A stripper (Aniston) is his wife, a street kid with a sharp tongue (Roberts) is his daughter and a brainless dork is his son. Along the way they have many adventures (more aptly misadventures) and share a life changing journey. Four unlikeable strangers will transform into a "new family" who will continue to share a bond long after the movie finishes.
We're The Millers is obviously aimed at the mid to late teenage market. Itís silly and offers a childish and immature style of comedy which lacks any sense of intelligence or credibility. Itís extremely crude with dialogue over loaded with gutter level humour, swearing and sexual discussions/scenes which would be borderline to offensive for many viewers Ė however, this is the style of comedy to expect from this genre and ultimately itís hilariously funny and best described as a barrel of laughs. Slightly too long owing to the addition of unneeded subplots which donít compliment the story and some storylines are so over the top that credibility is stretched to the limit.
If audiences refrain from being critical and take this movie for what it is Ė a harmless couple of hours in a dark cinema to detach from the realities of life Ė they should find this trip with the Millers outrageously enjoyable. JAKE
