Synopsis


We're the Millers
A low-level pot dealer poses as a family man in order to pay back a debt to his supplier in this comedy starring Saturday Night Live alumni Jason Sudeikis. If you're a soccer mom in search of some reefer, David Burke (Sudeikis) is just the man to talk to. He certainly isn't the biggest dealer in town, but he's discreet, and aims to please. When David attempts to perform a good deed and gets robbed in the process, however, his supplier Brad (Ed Helms) is none too happy. Now, in order to pay Brad back before the hammer drops, David must retrieve a big drug shipment from Mexico and sneak back across the border undetected. It's a risky job for sure, but with the help of a few neighbors David might just pull it off. With sardonic stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) assuming the role of housewife, teenage misfit Kenny (Will Poulter) posing as the awkward son, and rebellious Casey (Emma Roberts) filling in as his sister, David slips on some khakis, and starts heading south. Meanwhile, as David tries to convince himself that the border patrol wouldn't give a second glance at such a typical suburban family, the shipment -- and the stakes -- both prove greater than anticipated. Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, and Ken Marino co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The Miller "high" life....

    Medicinal herb comedies are nothing new. You could trace the first Mary Jane comedy back to Up in Smoke released in 1978 or even Reef** Madness released way back in 1936 (If you could classify this anti-MJ film as an intentional comedy). Most have been fairly mediocre efforts, with the films either being terribly unfunny or stereotypes of stereotypes, with a few classics thrown in there. Where does We're the Miller stand? David Clark (Jason Sudeikis, providing a very funny performance) is a low-level dealer living in Denver, never really achieving much after high school. One night, he sees a group of boys steal a phone from a runaway named Casey (Emma Roberts). Of course in the ensuing scuffle, he loses the contraband and money which belongs to his boss, Brad Gurdlinger (Ed Helms). Instead of meeting a grisly demise from his snafu, Gurdlinger offers David to drive down to Mexico and smuggle a "smidge" of illegal contraband (A smidge being about 2 tons) to pay off his loss. Afraid of looking too suspicious, he gets an idea from a traveling family in an RV to invent a family and draw less attention. After hiring Casey, Kenny, a nerdy neighbor of David's (Will Poulter, in a standout performance) and Rose, a local exotic dancer (Jennifer Aniston) to pose as his family, the Millers. The smuggling was the easy part, but unfortunately the mary jane belonged to Pablo Chacon and wants it back by any means, along with meeting a couple who is seemingly square, but it turns out is the DEA on vacation. The Miller's now must keep the charade going, while trying to make it back alive and possibly grow close together. So I asked, is this film a classic? Its really hard to say, since it's only been 3 years since it was released, but it is definitely up there as one of the funniest MJ films of all time. The cast is really good, the Miller's effectively being funny and having good chemistry (Emma Roberts is the least effective, but still can be good here and there), and the Fitzgerald's (The DEA's family) being uproariously hilarious (Nick Offerman and Katheryn Hahn earning some of the best laughs in the film). Ed Helms, Luiz Guzman, Ken Marino, Thomas Lennon and Mark Young give us some good laughs with their limited screen time, but the villains aren't really all that dangerous. Yes, the performances from the bad guys are good, but they're underwritten and give the main cast a few moments of grief ever few reels, but nothing to remember after watching. The direction is quite good, being Rawson Marshall Thurber's first big film in 9 years (Dodgeball was his big debut, followed up by an indie film in '08) but there are some stretches of film that could have been trimmed down or cut entirely without breaking up the flow of the film. The screenplay, credited to four writers (!), is funny, has some good lines but the overall plot is predictable and can be seen coming from a mile away. The digitally sourced camera work by Barry Peterson is quite nice, giving us a nice bright image, with the smooth digital sheen that comedies tend to skew. The music, editing, costumes and etc are very well done and gives us the well-budgeted look and feel most Hollywood comedies out there. Moving to the BluRay, the PQ is terrific. Though not one to plop down on your disc tray to use as demo material, the 2.35 1080p image offers a sharp and detailed image with colors that pop, terrific shadows and dark black hues and free from any defects whatsoever. The AQ is also well done, for a comedy. Mainly a front-centric track, the 5.1 DTS-HD does come alive from time to time, with gunshots, vehicles, music and dialogue balancing out nicely. Extras are fairly plentiful, starting with two versions of the film: Theatrical and Unrated. The Unrated offers us an additional 9 minutes of material here, while offering some funny material, it does slow down the movie a tad and fattens up the run time to 2 hours. Deleted and extended scenes offer us 16 minutes of extra fat, some funny but some rather long and rightfully trimmed out. Stories from the Road are 7 short featurettes totaling 17 minutes in all, which feel like a remnant of an aborted Maximum Movie Mode that couldn't cut the mustard and was designated as these featurettes. They offer some nice tidbits, focusing on the characters, filming in the RV and others. Millers Unleashed - Outtakes Overload, isn't a gag reel, its actually an 8 minute featurette about casting improv actors and how they got free rein to add material when needed. Livin' It Up with Brad is a 4 minute featurette focusing on Helms' character and his several quirks Gurdlinger has. When Paranoia Sets In is a 3 minute satirical short about drug smuggling. The last extra is an outtakes reel, offering up 3 minutes of some minor laughs, but nothing memorable here with the exception of the ending gag which is funny as all get out. A commentary and a making-of featurette would've helped, but still a decent amount of extras to go through. A DVD of disc one of the 2-disc special edition is included (The theatrical cut and all the extras) along with an Ultraviolet digital copy are included. All in all, a very funny film with a great BluRay with terrific PQ/AQ along with some good extras, but nothing substantial but worth owning and sharing space on your comedy shelf.

    "He's actually really cool, he's a drug dealer." David Clark (Sudeikis) is a drug dealer who is great at his job. One night while trying to do the right thing he loses all he has. When his boss finds out he gives him a way to pay him back. All he has to do is move a "smidge" of pot across the Mexican border. Thinking that no one will stop a family in an RV he recruits a stripper, a homeless girl and a clueless boy and off they go. But it doesn't go as smooth as he expected. Comedies are the hardest to market I think. The goal of a trailer is to put enough in to make you want to see it but not give too much away. Most comedies fall into the trap of putting all the funny parts in the trailer and when you see the movie you are disappointed. While I would say that 80% of the trailers gives away all the funny parts the movie is still hilarious and very much worth seeing. Sudeikis is funny as always and Aniston is great in her role but the kid that plays Kenny really steals the movie and he is worth the price alone. There are some comedies that are funny the first time you see them then start to lose something with repeated watching. Some exceptions to me are Anchoman & Wedding Crashers. Those are funny every time I see them. While I don't think this is in the same class as those I still think it will be a long time before the humor is lost with repeated watching. Overall, very funny and very much worth seeing a few times at least. I give it a B+.

    A Good Comedy

    This movie combines several known actors from various A listed movies with a plot generated around a smidge of Marijuana that the drug boss wants brought back from Mexico to compensate for the merchandise his pusher lost. To do this successfully Jason's character concocts an idea to use an RV and enlist some people in need of money to help him pull this off. Now this movie won't have you rolling on the carpet laughing your butt off and gasping for air, but it does have it's light humorous moments. I would not recommend going to see this in the theaters, but rather rent it. This movie has a good cast of characters which I think they could have pushed the envelope further and made it funnier, but they didn't. It's still a decent comedy, just not one that would be at the top of my must see list.

    I did not expect much from this movie when I bought this and I was pleasantly surprised. The cast blended very well with their different personalities and it worked. Jason Sudeikis was the mastermind of this crazy drug smuggling plan and recruits Jennifer Aniston(a stripper), a goofy neighbor and a homeless girl to be a family for a weekend. As the weekend unfolds, they start to appreciate each other and work out of the mess with drug dealers, and the DEA who are after them. Happy ending. Solid movie, but not recommended for kids. Jennifer's scene to prove she was a stripper was hysterical. Recommended.

    Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston are a great pair in this over the top, but well grounded comedy. Sudeikis uses his great sense of dry humor and delivery that keeps the movies "wacky" antics in check as Aniston and "the children" help add a moving story that balance it out nicely. All this added with the brief moments of Ed Helms throughout the movie keep things moving at a fun, entertaining pace. This movie doesn't bring anything very new to the comedy genre, it just does it right and gives you a good laugh along the way.

    As far as improv goes...

    While watching the movie I couldn't help but feel that many of the scenes felt like SNL sketches pieced together into a semi-coherent story. Imagine my lack of surprise when I read that, indeed, much of the script was improvised. Now, this does not mean that there weren't lough-out-loud moments. I just felt like the overall story was less cohesive than it could have been. As far as picture and audio quality, more than adequate for a comedy and otherwise dialogue heavy film.

    Comedy is a personal taste just like BBQ, everyone prefers different things. For my sense of humor, I really liked this movie and was glad I purchased it. Some great funny moments, an enjoyable way to spend some time on a rainy day. I happen to like Tropic Thunder, Airplane and a few other movies in that same style. This isn't quite so over the top so it was a nice change of pace yet still a comedy. Great casting, everyone played their roles well and made the movie a pleasure.

    A real good comedy, nothing too original, but funny enough and well acted to make it memorable. The bluray picture quality is detailed and sharp and the audio is terrific, but nothing more. Extras are pretty decent, with a few featurettes, deleted scenes and an outtakes reel, but nothing to really get in depth of making the film. The best extra is the unrated cut, but the extras need more depth. Other than that, a well rounded bluray and worth a spot on your shelf.
