Long Story Short:
David (Jason Sudeikis) is a drug dealer but through a silly incident he loses all is resources and money, which leaves his supplier (Ed Helms) highly upset. In order to make up for this loss, he agrees to smuggle weed across the Mexican border. But how can he cross the border without attracting any attention at all? By creating a fake family. With the of a stripper named Rose (Jennifer Aniston), the homeless girl Casey (Emma Roberts) and 18-year old Kenny (Will Poulter), who lives in his building he creates the Millers, the squeaky clean All American Family just taking a trip in their RV. And what’s suspicious about that? But things slowly get out of control.
We’re The Millers is a no-brainer comedy that manages to keep you entertained, even when you think the story can’t go any further. Some of the inappropriate jokes made me gasp at first but at the end I was laughing very hard. Jennifer Aniston is as always funny, quirky and sweet, but as we’ve seen in Horrible Bosses she can also be quite a bitch. Emma Robert and Will Poulter are a great fake siblings couple. Just as the trailer suggests there is no award winning storyline or acting performance, but if you like raunchy and silly sense of humor you won’t get bored. However there are a few jokes that are supposed to create a second hand embarrassment, but in my opinion they turn out rather uncomfortable than funny. Another disappointment were Jennifer Aniston’s sexy moments: I was expecting a huge stripper dance performance – of course non-nude, since I don’t think she would do that – but basically it was just what they already showed in the trailer, which doesn’t change the fact that she did great but people shouldn’t make a big deal out of it, because it really wasn’t. Nonetheless, We’re the Millers has a great ensemble of comedians that gets together to do what they do best: being funny. And that’s good.
