Jennifer Aniston as a stripper in a drug smuggling movie, Hmm! that seems fun. As we are blown-up by the trailer of the movie, does We're the Millers get ahead with all our expectations? Probably, yes!
David (Jason Sudeikis) is a small time drug dealer and works under Brad (Ed Helms) who was a douche, after few hitches David is been ordered to travel to New Mexico, collect some pot and then return back to the city. In a throny situation, David ascertains a plan with which he can fake the border patrol services and can pull out the whole complicated thing with no trouble. And this whole immense plan can only work out with a family which don't give any second thoughts to the policemen. After inquiring few things, he brings together his neighbour, Kenny (Will Poulter), a runaway, Casey (Emma Roberts), and a stripper, Rose (Jennifer Aniston), unites them into a family known as 'The Millers'.
Enclosed with a predictable plot, We're the Millers gives you few genuine laughs with it's developed material. It doesn't seem to be carried away in a frenzy manner, but gives you that few amusing giggles, as expected. Mainly the ironic and satirical dialogue edifies the character development in the movie. Few mature raunchy moments were furnished really well with its timing and drama.
Gabbing the flaws in the movie, it indeed had a predictable plot with few dull moments which were scarcely not needed, unintentional things. Nevertheless, the leads balanced and carried out the movie really well, by enjoying themselves with good humour.
Jason Sudeikis presented himself really well as a trustworthy employee to his boss who can turn into wicked douchebag when situation demands him to be. With his amusing humour and activities, he was fine as the main lead. Jennifer Aniston played out well with her clever dialogue and wholesome delivery, few earthy sequences feted that she can still deliver few irresistible moments.
Will Poulter and Emma Roberts were enjoyable as the rest of the family. Their characters were established well and is given much more depth to really bond them together as a real family and that gives us the belief that they can link up to a authentic relationship other than just tossing things away when needed.
Direction from Rawson Marshall Thurber was very well organized as he conveyed the whole story by giving the characters the expediency that is needed. It didn't really gave me the impression that it's 110 minute movie mainly when its dealt with a predictable plot.
On the whole, We're the Millers doesn't establish something new to the genre. Its funny and cheesy at times, overall a dependable entertainer which can engender fair amount of laughs. Definitely worth a watch, if you don't really care about the plot and other context.
My Rating - 3/5
Grade - B (Worth a watch!)
