We're the Millers [2013] Movie Review Recommendation

We’re the Millers [2013]

I’m sure that you heard by now about the famous striptease by Jennifer Aniston, the focal point of this movie. Starring Rachel and that guy that’s in all the comedies lately (Jason Sudeikis), We’re the Millers is a straight up drug/improv comedy that’s counting on adult humor and sexual content. It would appear that the version I saw didn’t have any nudity, apart from Rachel taking her clothes off every now and then, but still this was a good movie. Entertaining with a lot of good jokes and a few epic ones, but still this isn’t something that will be remembered for all times (I give it a year, max). Three things were relatively forced throughout the movie: Jennifer Aniston, family thing and the trendy subjects (mostly for the younger generation to identify with them and say hey they’re like me). But outrageous jokes and some really good acting made up for that.

We're The Millers PosterDavid Clark is a pot dealer who after college just continued to sell weed and live the same lifestyle. In the meantime, all his former friends and colleagues got married and started families, while he lived “the good life”. Rose is a stripper and she treats her job just like any other. Kenny is a nerdy kid who lives in the same building as David and Rose, inexperienced and left without any adult supervision. And finally Casey is a girl who lives on the streets, very resourceful, but also kinda dumb. All four of them have one thing in common, they need money, so when David gets an offer to smuggle some weed from Mexico, well you know what follows.

I think you already know what’s up with The Millers, so if by now you haven’t decided to watch it, you probably won’t. Few final thoughts though, I think that the thing that was a bit annoying was the inability of Jennifer to be a more seductive, not just physically but mentally. She was acting like she was still in some romantic comedy and not an all-out drug dealing movie. Also I would like you to pay attention to conversations between Jennifer and Jason. This sort of improv comedy is really big now, and sometimes it works great, but sometimes it fails miserably. Luckily for us, it was really good here, and if you’re looking to an immediate follow-up movie, maybe you should try Rapture Paloosa, enjoy.
