First Trailers for WE'RE THE MILLERS

Though little has been heard or seen surrounding director Rawson Marshall Thurber's first full length feature since Dodgeball it is on the night before The Hangover Part III is released that we get our first taste of what this comedy promises. As Ed Helms plays a supporting character here we will likely be seeing these trailers in front of that major comedy sequel this weekend, but the main attraction here is that it is a fresh comedy with a zany premise that looks surprisingly promising. Maybe it was the fact Thurber has taken a good amount of time off between directing features or that several of the major comedies this year feel somewhat familiar, but something about the aura this movie is giving off makes me feel it could definitely be the sleeper hit of the summer. There are a good amount of laughs in the trailer that imply an effortless quality to the pacing of the film and the free flowing jokes. Though the highlight of the trailer for many will be Jennifer Aniston playing a stripper it looks like her pretend son Kenny (Will Poulter of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) might steal this show. People seem to be fairly divisive on whether they think Jason Sudeikis is funny or not, but I've always enjoyed the guy on Saturday Night Live and though besides Horrible Bosses he hasn't really had that great a kick-off to his film career (most have already forgotten Hall Pass and we won't count his supporting role in The Campaign) this could easily jump start his career and put him off and running as he prepares to depart the late night comedy show. Thurber seems to have rounded up a good cast of comedians to fill in the bit parts as Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Molly Quinn, Emma Roberts and Thomas Lennon will also be joining the party. We’re the Millers opens August 9. Hit the jump to watch the red and green band trailers.

Synopsis: 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.


  1. Looks a bit raunchier than the usual Aniston romantic comedies and since I enjoy her still, I wouldn't mind watching it. The young kid looks awkward which will be funny. But it'll still be like a 6.3 IMDb type comedy.

    1. Yea, I doubt critics will enjoy this as much as mainstream audiences will, but comedy is so subjective I never let reviews heavily influence me when it comes to the genre. This seems like a late summer hit that could be in the same realm as Horrible Bosses and 21 Jump Street. At least, I hope it is.
