Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, and Will Poulter
in Warner Bros.' "We're The Millers" - 2013
This is the story of
marijuana drug dealer David Clark (played by Jason Sudeikis) and
his quest to smuggle weed from Mexico in order to clear his debt
with his boss Brad Gurdlinger (played by Ed Helms). Clark thought
it would be suspicious to go over the border alone so he encouraged
three others to be part of his fake family.
He hired a stripper
named Rose (played by Jennifer Aniston), a runaway teenage girl
named Casey (played by Emma Roberts) and a virgin 18-year-old
named Kenny (played by Will Poulter). The four of them were collectively
known as "The Millers."
They flew from Denver
to Tucson and then got aboard an enormous RV. The Millers drove
it down to the Mexican border and had no trouble getting in. Upon
arriving at the drug compound, they were greeted by men with big
guns. Clark explained the situation to the guy in charge and the
drug lords began loading their RV with pot.
Returning to America
was much more difficult. The Millers were asked to pull forward
and get out of the vehicle for a search. Four illegals escaped
from under the RV and then officers took off after them allowing
The Millers to re-enter the country.
From then on, it was
problem after problem. First, the RV overheated and everyone had
to get out. The Millers met another family known as The Fitzgeralds.
They offered to tow the Millers’ RV to a repair shop, but
it was closed that day. Clark later learned that Don Fitzgerald
(Nick Offerman) is a DEA agent. That raised a big red flag because
the Millers were smuggling marijuana. The Millers did everything
they could to keep the Fitzgeralds from seeing the weed.
Second, Clark had a
confrontation with the real drug lords—Pablo Chacon (Tomer
Sisely) and his sidekick, One Eye (Matthew Willig). The two of
them wanted to kill The Millers for stealing the marijuana. Clark
told the two that they weren’t a real family and he wasn’t
aware of what was going on. Rose was forced to perform a dance
since she told the drug lords that she was a stripper. She turned
on a steam vent and then the family escaped.
Third, Kenny was bitten
by a tarantula in one of his testicles. Everyone immediately got
out of the RV. Rose asked Kenny to drop his pants and show the
bite. The Millers took him to a local hospital to get treated.
Meanwhile, a carnival was going on next door and his sister met
a kiddie ride attendant named Scottie P. (Mark L. Young).
My favorite part of
the movie was when Kenny learned how to kiss a girl. His fake
sister, Casey, offered to teach him. She kissed Kenny first and
then his fake mother, Rose, wanted to get in on the action. A
few minutes later, a young blonde named Melissa Fitzgerald, opened
the door and got very upset. Kenny and her got intimate earlier
in the film.
Will The Millers ever
get caught for smuggling the marijuana? What is the future for
the four of them? I’m not going to spoil the ending. You’ll
have to see the movie to find out for yourself…
Rawson Marshall Thurber
directed this new motion picture. It is 110 minutes long and is
rated R for crude sexual content, pervasive language, drug material
and brief graphic nudity. Scenes for the film were shot throughout

I really enjoyed this
film and would recommend it for everyone. It featured a great
cast and an even better storyline. Stay for the credits so that
you can see the outtakes.
