Drug smuggling has never been more hilarious than in We're The Millers.  I don't recall the last good funny Jennifer Aniston movie, but this is so full of laughs that it will have your stomach hurting.  The story is about a drug dealer David Clark played by Jason Sudeikis, who must bring across the border from Mexico a smidget of drugs which turns out to be a whole RV full.  In order to do so, he concocts the idea that he needs a pretend average American family to bypass the border guards more easily.

David gets to join him on his pretend family Rose O'Reilly as his wife played by Jennifer Aniston.  Rose is his neighbor that works as a stripper that agrees to go with him to make some cash when her boyfriend maxes out her credit cards and skips out on her with an eviction notice on her door.  David's pretend children are Casey Mathis a runaway played by Emma Roberts and Kenny Rossmore, a squeaky clean awkward neighbor played by Will Poulter.

While Jennifer Aniston does a great job looking and acting like a stripper it's so hard to imagine her as one from watching her on her days on the sitcom Friends and all other wholesome romance movies she's been on.  Emma Roberts of the four for me, shines the least, only because her role is much more limited and uninteresting compared to the other three.  Will Poulter definitely steals the show with several scenes that are just hilarious like his rapping of a TLC song and yes, nude scene which may have some people turned off.  My favorite scene of the movie, Will Poulter playing Pictionary.

Overall, I would highly recommend this film to adults and older teens.  Yes, the story is a bit absurd and goes in a lot of different directions.  But the charismatic cast and hilarious situations and dialogue more than makes up for it.  Be sure to stay at the end of the movie for the bloopers including a touching homage to Jennifer Aniston's old show.
