We're the Millers 2013 9 out of 10

We're the Millers  2013   9 out of 10

We're the Millers was funny from start to finish (something not common in most comedies these days).   I truly enjoyed the tone of the film and can't wait to get it when it comes out on DVD.   It had strong plot about a pot dealer that gets backed into having to smuggle a "smidge" of weed over the border to repay his boss (Ed Helms)  the pot that was stolen from him.   He recruiters his neighbors to pose as his fake family in order to try and trick the border patrol and make the job easier.   It plays out like a dirty version of the Griswalds  if Clark was a pot dealer and his wife was a stripper.   Jennifer Aniston stars along with Jason Sudeikis as the fake couple and they both provide non stop laughs.  The entire cast was great and included small roles with both Tomas Lennon (Lt Dangle) and Ken Marino (Burning Love & Party Down)    Many  modern comedies don't have a strong plot and just seem like a bunch of connected skits.  We're the Millers delivers not only laughes, but a solid plot with a satisfying conclusion.   Plus Jennifer Aniston has never looked hotter than during the little striptease she does to save them after they are captured by the Mexican drug dealers.   The movie really exceeded my expectations  and was probably the best comedy I've seen in the theaters since the first Hangover.
