Brief Synopsis
After being robbed of a week's take, small-time pot dealer David is forced by his boss to go to Mexico to pick up a load of marijuana. In order to improve his odds of making it past the border, David asks the broke stripper Rose and two local teenagers to join him and pretend they're on a family holiday. (via IMDB)
When I first heard about We're The Millers, I didn't think I'd see it, but I've been hearing good reviews about it from people who had seen it. So, I thought, I'd see it for myself and of course, Jennifer Aniston is on it. I saw this movie last September and loved and enjoyed watching it. I'm late in posting my review here, but better late than never, right? "Y'now-what-I'm-sayin'? (Favorite line from this movie, lol).

I thought this movie was actually very good. It was hilarious and definitely had me and the audience laughing for most of the film. I must say the casting was spot on this film. Jason Sudeikis was pretty good in the lead as David. Jennifer Aniston was very good and funny on this one as well. They were convincing as the pretend "married" couple David & Rose Miller with two pretend "teenage kids" played by Emma Roberts as Casey, who's character was actually a runaway and Will Poulter as Kenny. They were all very convincing as a fake family. LOL!

I loved and laughed out loud at the following favorite scenes and lines from this movie...

[Warning! ... for those who haven't seen this movie and don't want to be spoiled...]

- When the pretend family were on a road trip to go to Mexico for a family holiday, they were on a big RV (they actually used this to hide drugs they collecting from Mexico, lol). Their road trip moments were hilarious especially when they started singing TLC's Waterfalls..."Don't go chasin' waterfalls..." and Kenny did the rap part, haha!
- When "the Millers" wore sombreros as they were crossing the Mexican border.
- When a Mexican cop pulled them over, but was actually bribing David for sex and money instead of Rose, lol...
- When "the Millers" interacted with another family who were also driving an RV with their teenage daughter (who along the way Kenny had a crush on and wanted to kiss).
- When David & Rose were forced to hang out with the crazy couple who helped them (the husband was a retired or rather an undercover DEA...that scared the Millers, lol...)
- When Rose and Casey were teaching Kenny how to kiss a girl...they took turns to "practice kissing" him, lol...and the girl he really liked caught was hilarious, but gross and "incest" to the girl (who didn't know they were a fake family) at the same time, hahaha!!!!
- When Kenny got bitten by an arachnid or something in his genitals...eww! LOL! His priceless reaction was hilarious! And when he said, "F#%* a donkey, it hurts! Haha!
- When Casey meet a guy who loves to say, "Y'now-what-I'm-sayin'? LOL! That was hilarious
- Their fake baby was named LeBron...

And more...! So many LOL moments in this movie!

Overall, We're the Millers was a very good comedy, which will make you laugh out loud. The movie was more hilarious than you'd think. You'll be surprise how creative some of those "stupid," funny and ridiculous scenes were, which were actually very funny. The "mother and daughter" Miller girls. Jennifer Aniston as a sexy stripper with mother instincts and Emma Roberts as an angry teen with a big mouth (it was funny at the beginning when David said to her "you look like Eminem from 8 Mile," 'cause she was wearing a hoodie, lol). The stripper scenes with Jennifer (who's looking hot in those stripper scenes!) was pretty good. Will Pouter was just so perfect for the part of virgin, sweet and awkward teenage "son." And of course, Jason Sudeikis as David, the drug dealer, turned patriarch of The Millers was great in the role. Great casting for The Millers, as they were just the perfect "family. " They picked just the right actors for this hilarious comedy. You can expect dirty, funny, sexy, and ridiculous scenes from this movie! And the end credits was just as funny (with the unexpected FRIENDS theme song included!) as the scenes in the movie. This and The Heat (with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy) were the only two hilarious movies I've seen in theaters this year! I highly recommend you see this movie, if you haven't already. It's available now on DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital HD!

My We're The Millers film rating:  (9.5/10A)
