Comedy - This is a raunchy and crude comedy, so fans of Jennifer Aniston's
more gentle television work or Emma Roberts's more youth-oriented
work should be forewarned. Fans of the lead stars should be pleased.
Ed Helms's role is fairly small. Nonstop language, raunchy and
crude humor, drug content, and some violence make this one not for
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; 28 S-words; 8 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Sexy dancing with nudity; sexual situations without nudity; nonsexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights, shootings with some blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Marijuana, alcohol, tobacco. ACTION: Chases and fights. COMEDY: Constant banter and wisecracks, often crude; drug humor; gay humor; sex humor.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average We're the Millers is as generic as R-rated comedies get: a perfect vehicle to enhance Jennifer Aniston's motion picture reputation.
Roger EbertFull Review Good So when something as chuckle-worthy, mildly clever and surprisingly borderline genius at times as "We're the Millers" comes along, even those who are Aniston averse will heave a sigh of relief.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average We're the Millers is a twisted road trip worth avoiding. Not only is it not funny, it's offensive.
NY PostFull Review Poor For young actresses to disrobe in exchange for attention is tradition. For 44-year-olds, it's desperation.

Based on a theater exit polling of 192 moviegoers:
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "WE'RE THE MILLERS." These are exceptional reviews considering this is a silly, sexual comedy. Usually these types of movies have widely varying reviews with many low to very low reviews. Apparently, all these moviegoers read our content information ahead of time (I wish) and knew exactly what to expect.
David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids -- after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms). In order to wipe the slate clean -- and maintain a clean bill of health -- David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad's latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the "Millers" are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.
