Were the Millers

Theatrical Release: August 7, 2013
Were the Millers


David Burke (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).

In order to wipe the slate clean—and maintain a clean bill of health—David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the “Millers” are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.

Dove Review

“We’re the Millers” is an adventure comedy of another breed. When a drug dealer has his money and marijuana stolen, he is forced to smuggle drugs from Mexico into the United States. As a disguise, to throw off the boarder agents, he hires a stripper, a homeless girl and a neighbor boy to become his family. Everything seems to go as planned until he realizes he has actually stolen drugs from a Mexican smuggling ring.

The movie is funny at times and has a couple of slightly moving scenes in it but unfortunately you have to sit through every type of sexual joke imaginable along the way. The overt sexuality and the non-stop foul language prevent us from recommending this movie for the family.
