After getting his stash of pot stolen, small time dealer Dave (Jason Sudekis) is ordered by his boss to go to Mexico and smuggle pot back into the United States. Deciding that the best way to make himself look innocent while crossing the border is to take a fake family, he enlists the help of stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) to play his wife, geeky virgin Kenny  (Will Poulter) to play his son, and streetwise Casey (Emma Roberts) to play his daughter. However, things inevitably go awry and they find themselves chased by a drug lord and his henchman, and trying to avoid getting arrested.

I really liked this film a lot. It’s true that it was never going to win any major awards, but if you want a barrel of laughs – some definitely on the adult side – then this does nicely. Naturally there is some good-heartedness as the rag-tag bunch go from animosity and antagonism to actually starting to care about each other. Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn also showed up as a couple of fellow travellers, who get enmeshed in ‘The Millers’ adventures, and both were excellent. I belly laughed several times.

Overall, if you are looking for a light hearted comedy, and don’t mind some adult humour, I would highly recommend this film.
