DVD Review: We’re The Millers
Small time drug dealer David has a rare moment of selflessness when he goes to help his hapless home-alone neighbour kid whose just run across to help out a cute homeless girl, getting beat on in an inner-city alley way. Things go wrong and he ends up being forced back to his apartment and made to and over his stash, and all his cash, putting him in substantial debt with his drug kingpin boss. Oooops. It’s ok however, as his boss has an easy solution; pop across the border and pick up a small shipment of drugs in a campervan. Do this and his debts will be forgotten.
Of course a single guy driving a camper van across the border might arouse suspicion, so David has to make a fake family, to make him seem innocent. Enter the neighbour, the homeless girl and his other neighbour, a out of work and out of money stripper. Oh yes, the fake family, calling themselves the Millers, are so your typical nuclear affair!
Of course, nothing goes to plan, but somehow they manage to get the job done, whilst delivering some fast and furious humour, some very dodgy humour, some incestual humour and a very un-sexy Jennifer Aniston proving that she’s a better actor than stripper.
We’re The Millers won’t be everyones cup of tea, but if you like your humour redband, then this will probably have you laughing enough to make it worthwhile.
