We're the Millers (2013) Movie Review

Genre: Comedy
Language: English
Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts
Story (may contain spoilers!):
Jason Sudeikis plays David Clark, a long time experience drug dealer who's been pushing drugs since high school. He lives on his own and one night, while going back, he bumped into an old high school classmate.
Jennifer Aniston plays Rose, a stripper at a strip club who's adamant to have sex with clients.

David returns back to the apartment and bumps into Rose at the letter box area where they exchange subtle insults that's when Kenny pops out and starts nosing into their conversation. Kenny says that he's home alone and that he's mom is out for a drink......since last week! Rose disappears back to her place where hints of her in debt and are in danger of being evicted were left to the audience to note.

While David and Kenny were talking, there was a commotion outside the building. It was Casey, a runaway teenager who's being harassed by 3 guys. Kenny saw and straight tried to break it up but ended up him being the victim instead. David stepped in to intervene and they soon were on the run. But David failed to get away and ended up getting all his money taken away.

David's drug lord boss wasn't too happy for not getting his money and forces David to accept an assignment of smuggling "a smidgen and a half" of drugs from Mexico back into the United States for him under his alias Pablo Chacon.

David thought long and hard of how to pull it off and suddenly got the idea of using the image of a family on vacation in an RV as a front. And so him and Kenny were already a team as father and son. He went to Rose to offer her to play as the mother but Rose rejected the offer. But after a string of bad luck, ie. the strip club wants their stripper to start sleeping with the customer and Rose quit the job due to that and also being evicted from her apartment, she finally went with it. David and Kenny next approached Casey to play the daughter part and she accept on condition she's paid $1000.

They went to Mexico, got in, got tons loads of drugs which filled the RV and were out to the Mexican border. Will they able to get past the border with an RV full of drugs? Watch the movie to find out with more obstacles on their way!
This show may provide some good laughs but it's not really over-the-top comedic but more of their silly slapstick actions. I only find it an okay movie and it's logic are really against my judgment of how I would react if put in the same situation.
I give this movie 2.5 stars out of 5.
