We're The Millers

Rated R / 1 hr 50 min  / Comedy - Crime

 What is it about?

A small time drug dealer gets robbed, and his supplier forces him to go on a drug run to Mexico.  He comes up with the idea of having a fake family similar to the Flanders family from the Simpsons. He thinks that the police won't look twice at them.  He recruits an uptight kid and a stripper that live in the same building as him along with a girl that appears to be a runaway or perhaps homeless.

You'll like it if...

You like family comedies.  Each member of the family has their issues that get resolved as the movie progresses.  I'm really surprised that they didn't re-work this one to make it PG-13.  There are some gross out scenes similar to "There's Something About Mary", but they aren't vital to the story and aren't particularly funny.  There are a lot of big laughs in this one, but the movie resembles a family drama in between those moments.  The outtakes at the ending credits are also worth sticking around for after the end.
