Bettie's Box Office: We're The Millers Movie Review
Updated: Friday, August 9 2013, 08:46 PM CDT
“We’re not drug dealers, we’re drug smugglers. There’s a difference!”
The fact that that’s a running gag in We’re the Millers tells you a lot. Jason Sudeikis plays David Clark, a burnout pot peddler deeply in debt to his supplier. To save his skin, he agrees to pick up a shipment of weed in Mexico and move it across the border. As a cover, he creates a fake family with a stripper (Jennifer Aniston), a runaway (Emma Roberts) and a geek (Will Poulter). They pile into an RV and hilarity ensues…almost.
There are some good, laugh-out-loud moments, and some funny, cringe-worthy situations, but everything feels a little forced in this movie.
We get it – Jennifer Aniston is still very fit – but do they have to try and prove she could be a stripper?
If you take four people who hate each other and put them in an RV for a long road trip, will they end up loving each other (isn’t it usually the other way around)?
I kind of wanted this movie to go off the rails and become a funny dark comedy like Bad Santa, but like a real-life road trip, it stayed on a very predictable path.
If you’re in the mood for an adult comedy and you’ve already seen everything out there (including This is the End), then on the Bettie's Box Office rating scale that ranges from pay full price to wait for it to come out on TV, I'd say catch a matinee.
We’re the Millers is in theaters and is rated R for crude sexual content, pervasive language, drug material and brief graphic nudity.
