We're the Millers

A small-time drug dealer (Jason Sudeikis) poses as a suburban dad to smuggle an RV full of marijuana across the U.S.-Mexican border, recruiting a washed-up stripper (Jennifer Aniston) and two pathetic teenagers to pose as his family. This is surprisingly mean-spirited for a mainstream comedy; the filmmakers seem to regard every moronic supporting character with contempt, and many of the gags are predicated on sexual degradation. Those qualities could yield a bracing satire, but the filmmakers lack the courage of their convictions, falling back on moments of egregiously false sentimentality whenever the material threatens to turn dark. Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) directed; with Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, and Ed Helms.
