Ok so this is a film about a bunch of people pretending to be a family, when actually they are international drug smugglers, oh but it’s so much more that than, it’s hilarious. With a great recognisable family – well I don’t recognise Kenny (Will Poulter), but he made it great in this and definitely will be recognised from now on. There’s Jason Sudeikis as the small town drug dealer, David Clark, the stripper Jennifer Aniston (if you don’t know who she is, then be ashamed, and get watching ‘Friends’). Finally, the runaway Emma Roberts as Casey (‘Wild Child’, ‘Nerve’). They all are great as they struggle to be this false family.
This is such a great comedy, it is really one to make you laugh – although not for younger ages, bit inappropriate otherwise. But there are so many parts in the film that are hilarious. The favourite and most memorable scene of the whole film has to be singing Waterfalls – the greatest of Will Poulter right there, proving that he made it great in this film. This scene will never fail to make me laugh. This drug dealer, stripper, runaway and Kenny go on a trip to Mexico with that they think to pick up a “smidge” of drugs, however, it’s not as easy as that. Things escalate and escalate to hilarious. Unlucky things happening to Kenny that you wouldn’t wish upon any. It is quite a different comedy to many others I have seen at least, yet it is still one that is truly funny. And never forget the brilliant bloopers at the end!
On their adventurous travels, they meet another family, a family who keeps popping up wherever they go. So lies get deeper and the film becomes more comedic as they come up with stupid excuses and crazy solutions. For example, don’t worry it’s just a herb baby that’s been thrown in the middle of the road and hit numerously by lorries… This new family is also great, the Fitzgerald family, Don (Nick Offerman), Edie (Kathryn Hahn) and their daughter Melissa (Molly C. Quinn). This family is great in itself, they definitely add to the humour of the film.
‘We’re the Millers’ is full of comedy, and even has a bit of action, when they accidentally steal the “smidge” of drugs from an international drug dealer, not like he takes it very well. So I recommend you go meet the Miller family! “No ragrets” right?
