The road comedy We're the Millers gets a 42% positive rating from critics, 81% positive from the audience on Rotten Tomatoes. The audience is right, and the critics have sticks up their butts. It's not Citizen Kane; it's just a lot of fun.
W.C. Varones' Third Maxim of Film is that it's impossible to make a bad road movie, and We're the Millers certainly doesn't break that rule. It's like National Lampoon's Vacation updated to Hangover-style humor, with Clark Griswold replaced by a low-level pot dealer forced to assemble a fake family of oddballs to smuggle a load of pot in an RV from Mexico. A bonus is a talented striptease by Jennifer Aniston, and there's full-frontal eye candy for the ladies, too.
