Title: We're the Millers (2013)

We're the Millers


Ya know, my library does suck when it comes to getting movies into their system. We're the Millers is definitely a title that it always seems to have on hand, but for whatever reason, they did not....until now. Anyway, as for We're the Millers, even though I wanted to check this out, I went into this with very low expectations and was expecting a complete disaster. Some people hate it.....I on the other hand found it quite enjoyable and more importantly....damn funny in all the right spots. The story is pretty basic: Road trip to and from Mexico to smuggle in drugs. That's the extent of it. It's the chemistry between all four actors portraying a traditional "family" that really shines through. The movie and their performances have a certain charm to it that you just can't not help but root for them. I would definitely watch this again channel surfing. Yup, I recommend this as a Rent. Even the end credit blooper reel was damn funny too. FYI, Jennifer Aniston looks amazing during her strip scene.

Everything you said is spot on. I remember going into this with real expectations. Completely surprised me at how enjoyable this was. I definitely had some LOL moments.  Ya can't go wrong with this one... IMO.

I forgot to give a shout out to both Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn who both stole their scenes whenever they were on the screen. There are too many scenes they have to even mention as a 'Stand out' moment. They were all equally funny and memorable. If they did a spin-off with those two, I'd definitely be on board for that.

You know, this movie and the Vacation remake made me realize that no one takes holidays like this anymore.  Remember, this was when that awful word "stay-cation" was being bandied about because people couldn't afford to go out and do sh*t.  So really, what we needed was a remake of The Burbs.  Millers is very much making fun of the idea of a family trip, there's nothing in there that's inspired by actual events or memories like the original Vacation was.
