We are the Millers (2013)
Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber
I recently just rented We are the Millers, after hearing so much about it; I had to check it out for myself. The movie stars Jason Sudeikis as David Clark, a man who has a debt to pay and must pretend he has a fake family in order to get across the Mexican border. He believes that if he has a family when he crosses the border, then the cops won’t think he has any drugs.
UMMMM, someone should remind that the cops at international borders have dogs who can sniff out weed and cocaine.
Jennifer Aniston plays Rose O’Reilly, his fake wife who is really a stripper. Despite her slutty, sexy exterior she has a good heart. The type of movie that just makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Yeah that plot sounds ridiculous, but what else can you expect from Aniston movies these days.
I feel like all the movies that she makes now a days, Just go with it, Wanderlust, Horrible Bosses, et, all revolve around her having a scene where she gets to strip down to her undies and the audience gets to see her gorgeous body.
I am so not being a hater, but really is that all she has to give and is that the only way she can get a movie role. I mean I know she did Leprechaun back in the day, pre-nose job era, but she is Rachel from Friends, she dated Brad Pitt, Hollywood can definitely give her better roles.
Angelina Jolie doesn’t do these types of movies, is this why Pitt totally dumped her? LOL.
At the least, she should give herself more credit and go for meatier roles.
The rest of the border-crossing crew includes Casey Mathis an angry, runway teenager played by Emma Roberts and Kenny Rossmore played by newbie, Will Poulter. I have never seen this actor in any movies before this, but he definitely stood out. He was literally the funniest person in the entire film.
His naiveté and dorkiness totally shine through and make for a funny flick. Watch out for the threesome scene to laugh out loud.
If you rented this movie with high expectations of Oscar-worthy moments, then this is the wrong movie for you, but if you want a good laugh that requires no brain work, then this is the perfect movie.
I liked this movie and seriously had myself some good laughs, yes it is stupid, but that is what this movie is all about. It doesn’t pretend to be serious, so if you are bored, grab a beer and put this flick on.
