David is a small-time pot dealer whose life after college hasn't really amounted to much. His clientele is the mild-variety, consisting of housewives, soccer moms, and gourmet chefs, while never dealing to children. After a group of punks steal David's drug money he is forced to settle a major debt with his supplier, Brad. In order to make things even, David is forced to become a drug smuggler, bringing Brad's latest shipment from Mexico to Denver. After some major convincing, David persuades his stripper neighbor Rose, his innocent neighbor Kenny, and street kid Casey to pose as his family in order to increase his chances of successfully smuggling the drugs into the United States. Rawson Marshall Thurber's We're The Millers is a unique but simple comedic concept that delivers a steady stream of funny moments from beginning to end. The formula of the film is pretty simple, with these four characters pretending to be a polite and loving family which more often than not leads to hilarity. We're the Miller's is definitely an R rated comedy and the film maintains an edge throughout its running time even managing to avoid cheesy sentimentality through almost the entire running time. The more I see of Jason Sudeikis the bigger fan I'm becoming as he really has such an effortless brand of comedic timing that is both likeable and certainly comedic. Yes, Rawson Marshall Thurber's We're The Millers is definitely predictable with all the characters falling into place where one would expect but at the end of the day the film strives to make the viewer laugh, which it succeeds at a more frequent rate than most of the other comedies this summer.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
