We're The Millers is One Dope Movie

We're The Millers
We're The Millers
Do not take your kids to this movie!  We're the Millers is hilarious, but definitely inappropriate for children.  It is rated R for very crude sexual content, pervasive language, drugs, and brief graphic nudity.

This New Line Cinema comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis is chock full of action, adventure, a little romance, and a whole lot of comedy from start to finish.  David Burke (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer with no life ambition or drive.  When David is robbed, he loses everything; his drug money, his pot, and his personal life savings.  He is forced to go from small-time pot dealer to big-time pot smuggler when he finds himself in serious debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).

David recruits Rose (Aniston), a cynical stripper, Kenny (Will Poulter), a socially awkward teen, and Casey (Emma Roberts), a tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen to help him create a fake family that will help him get the mother load of pot across the border from Mexico, and back to home to Brad.

Want to know what happens next?  You'll have to see the movie... I can tell you that the show takes some unexpected twists and turns, and may even shock you.

OMG!
Dumbstruck
Uh oh!
WOW!
David's fake family is joined by Don (Nick Offerman), Edie (Kathryn Hahn), and Melissa (Molly Quinn) Fitzgerald, RV enthusiasts, and a handful of other well-known actors.  The entire Fitzgerald's family amps up the overall comedy value of the show.  Don and Edie play their parts so well, I found myself laughing so hard I had to wipe away tears.

Rawson Marshall Thurber, director, did a good job creating back stories for each of the characters.  You may fall in love with most of them, maybe even cheer for what you might normally call the bad guys.  The entire cast is completely committed to making their role believable, but certainly no one was more committed than Jennifer Aniston.  I predict that hundreds of thousands of men and women will buy this movie just so that they can play and replay the various stripper scenes.  Thank you Bob Fisher and Steve Faber for creating this extremely funny movie.
