My comments:  This movie was a freaking riot.  Many had told me that it was very raunchy, and I guess maybe some would consider it so, but compared to some of the things I've seen (and read) in the last few  years......  I laughed and guffawed and rolled my eyes a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it, losing myself completely for each of the 100 minutes that the movie rolled.  Great fun!  And I never realized what a "doll" Jason Sudeikis is!  It also has a really delicious ending.  Perfect movie for me to watch on a lonely Friday afternoon!

RT Summary:  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 towipe 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.
