David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele consists of soccer moms and the like. But when he gets jumped by a group of punks, he’s out both product and cash leaving him in major debt with his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).
In order to square himself with Brad, David has to smuggle his next weed shipment in from Mexico. And by twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston), wannabe-customer and actual virgin Kenny (Will Poulter), and runaway-teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof cover for drug smuggling: a fake family.
Jon Niccum of the Kansas City Star writes, “In a summer awash in lackluster action blockbusters and inevitable comedy sequels, We’re the Millers is a welcome arrival. A fresh premise, gifted cast and relentlessly abrasive tone make it one of the standout comedies of the year.”
BoxOffice.com is predicting that We’re the Millers generates about $22M in its opening weekend.
