(2013) (Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: A small-time pot dealer recruits a stripper and two teens to pretend to be his family so that he can smuggle a huge shipment of pot from Mexico into the U.S.
- David Clark (JASON SUDEIKIS) is a low-level pot dealer whose clientele are everyday people living near him in Denver. When he helps a teenager who lives in his apartment building, Kenny Rossmore (WILL POULTER), save a runaway teen, Casey Mathis (EMMA ROBERTS), from some thugs trying to rob her, he ends up losing both his pot and the money he made from that. All of which means he now owes his pot distributor, Brad Gurdlinger (ED HELMS), $43,000 and must agree to that man's new demand -- to transport some marijuana from Mexico into the U.S. The upside is doing so will not only get him off the hook with the money he owes, but will also earn him an extra $100,000.
The downside is doing so could land him in jail for a long time. When he sees a lost tourist family in their RV -- Don Fitzgerald (NICK OFFERMAN), his wife Edie (KATHRYN HAHN), and their teenage daughter Melissa (MOLLY QUINN) -- getting help from a local cop, he comes up with an idea. And that is that he can clean himself up to look like a family man and hire both Kenny and Casey to play his teenage kids. For their fake mother, he chooses his neighbor, Rose O'Reilly (JENNIFER ANISTON), a stripper who agrees only because she's recently quit and has been evicted from her place.
The "Millers" then fly down to the border, rent an RV and pick up the shipment that turns out to be enormous and fills every nook and cranny of their rental vehicle. Little do they realize, however, that some other suburban looking type was supposed to pick up the drugs. All of which means they must contend with the drug lord Pablo Chacon (TOMER SISLEY) and his hulking henchman, One-Eye (MATTHEW WILLIG), coming after them, all while they must also deal with the Fitzgerald family who become their unexpected and unwelcome travel companions as the Millers try to make their way back to Denver.
