When a small time drug dealer agrees to bring a shipment back from Mexico he thinks the perfect cover is to be a family man, so he recruits oddball friends and neighbours to play his fictitious brood.
Along the way they encounter another travelling family while also trying to evade a rival dealer and deliver the drugs on time.
The entire cast look like they’re having fun and it comes across on screen. Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses) is great as the downtrodden pot dealer Dave and Jennifer Aniston delivers another hilarious and sexy turn as stripper Rose, who has to convince everyone that she’s the perfect Mother. The pretend kids of the family are the hapless Kenny (Will Poulter) and streetwise Casey (Emma Roberts).
There are plenty of laughs here with Poulter especially giving a show-stealing performance, look out for the spider scene!
Without doubt the best comedy of the year so far.
We’re The Millers is in cinemas now.
