It's rare to find a movie that so defiantly refuses to be put into a genre box. Is this a drama? A black comedy? A pointed exploration of alcoholism? A buddy adventure? A giant monster movie? The answer is that it's all of these things, often at the same time. And this offbeat tone makes it seriously riveting, anchored by wonderfully unshowy performances by Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis.
It opens in Manhattan, as Gloria (Hathaway) returns from yet another drunken night out. And her boyfriend (Dan Stevens) has finally had enough. He throws her out, so she returns to her childhood hometown, where she runs into old classmate Oscar (Sudeikis), another drunk who now owns the local bar and offers her a job there working with Garth and Joel (Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell). Then she starts noticing that her inebriated behaviour seems to be controlling a huge monster that's currently attacking Seoul, Korea. And when she gets Oscar, Garth and Joel to help her test this theory, things really begin to get strange.

From Saturday Night Live to comedies like Horrible Bosses and We're the Millers, Jason Sudeikis has made a career as part of an ensemble.
Now he's playing the leading role in The Angry Birds Movie, an animated adventure based on the phone-app game. But he found the job a bit lonely, recording his character's lines in a sound studio in Manhattan. "The one thing that you miss, and the biggest difference, is the interaction," Sudeikis says. "The chemistry that comes across on-screen is actually created by the people that did the sound mixing and the animation. They make the real magic happen by making it appear as if we're all in the same place at the same time. And for me, who spends most of my time working in ensembles, I miss that. But you get to have that on the other side when you meet up and travel around selling the film!"
Sudeikis admits that he didn't know much about Angry Birds before he got the role ("I've spent more time being in the game than playing the game"), but he loved the script by Jon Vitti, a veteran comedy writer who has worked on everything from The Simpsons to The Office. And he found his character Red a challenge. "He's the definition of angry," he laughs. "Red is a contrarian. He's a little frustrated. He's definitely the black sheep. He reminds me of Jack Nicholson from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest!"

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' has remained at the top of the US Box Office for the second consecutive week. 'We're the Millers' has also retained its position at no.2 for the third week.
Lee Daniels' The Butler has retained its position at No.1 in the US Weekend Box Office for the second week. The movie is an historical epic which follows the true story of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a black butler who served at the White House through the offices of eight presidents. Whitaker is supported by a cast of award winning actors including Oprah Winfrey, Alan Rickman, Josh Cusack and Robin Williams.

This weekend Lee Daniels' The Butler may not have been, financially, as successful as last weekend. It made over $17 million this week as opposed to the $25 million it earned in its opening weekend. Meanwhile We're the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, made $13 million down from $17 million last weekend. The comedy made a similar amount to The Butler in its opening weekend ($26 million) yet has continued, by comparison, to be more financially profitable.

Consistently amusing but never uproariously funny, this comedy plays it relatively safely by gently subverting our expectations of Aniston and Roberts, while making rising-star Poulter the butt of most jokes. There's just enough rude humour to keep fans of adult-oriented comedies happy, even if the movie continually reveals a squidgy-soft underbelly of sentimentality. But it's fun while it lasts.
The chaos begins when happy small-time Denver pot dealer David (Sudeikis) is robbed, leaving him indebted to his supplier Brad (Helms). Then he's offered a way out: travel to Mexico and collect a "smidge" of weed to smuggle back across the border in an RV. To increase his chances of getting through without an inspection, he creates a fake family from his neighbours: desperate stripper Rose (Aniston), lonely geek Kenny (Poulter) and homeless tough-girl Casey (Roberts). And the fact that they struggle to act like a convincing family is the least of their problems as they're chased by two vicious goons (Sisley and Willig) and befriended by a too-friendly couple (Offerman and Hahn) along the road.
Yes, this is one of those road comedies in which something unexpected happens every step of the way. Sudeikis rides out the film relatively unruffled, while Aniston's big scene is a scorchingly over-the-top striptease performed to distract a drug kingpin. Roberts' only subplot is a silly liaison with a moronic skater (Young). These sequences are carefully calculated to be mildly funny but never embarrassing to the big American stars. On the other hand, acclaimed British actor Poulter (see Son of Rambow and Wild Bill) dives in to his humiliating scenarios with gusto, from an awkward romance with another girl (Quinn) to kissing practice with his "mother" and "sister" to a ghastly spider bite. In the process, he walks off with the whole film.

Jennifer Aniston turned out for a gloomy London premiere of 'We're The Millers'
Jennifer Aniston probably couldn't wait to get to Heathrow airport and catch a flight straight back to Los Angeles, but the stoic actress smiled intently for the cameras and braved the blustery British weather for the premiere of her new comedy We're the Millers in London on Wednesday night (August 14, 2014).
Jennifer Aniston At The We're The Millers Premiere In London
Poor old Aniston - she probably assumed we have summers in Britain, or maybe she heard the rumors about a little sunshine? Either way, she wore a flowery dress fit for the Californian heat.
'Wanderlust' star Jennifer Aniston and 'Hotel for Dogs' actress Emma Roberts looked absolutely stunning as they arrived on the red carpet for the New York premiere of their new movie 'We're The Millers' held at the Zeigfeld Theater. Others at the event were 'Horrible Bosses' star Jason Sudeikis and basketball star Iman Shumpert.
We're The Millers is a 'missed opportunity' - but don't tell the studio.
We're The Millers should have been absolutely fantastic. There's no excuse. Let's get the boring stuff out of the way first. The big-budget comedy is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber - this is the guy who helmed Dodgeball.
It was written by Bob Fisher and Steve Faber - these are the guys who penned Wedding Crashers.
We're The Millers is the story of a small-time pot dealer whose clientele is mainly chefs and soccer moms. However, when he winds up getting jumped by a trio of punks, he's left in a major debt to his supplier (played by the hideously miscast Ed Helms) and is tasked with crossing the Mexican border with a fake family (Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter) to bring back a huge stash of drugs
'We're the Millers' is released today stateside, starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms and Emma Roberts.
We're The Millers enjoys is first day of release today (7th August) in the USA after a shocking reported case of domestic violence marred its early outlook. What looked like the perfect recipe for comedy delight: SNL star Jason Sudeikis, The Hangover's Ed Helms and Horrible Bosses' Jennifer Aniston seems to have fallen a little flat at the hands of critics.
Jason Sudeikis Plays The Small-Time Drug Dealer Paying Off His Debts.
Having earned herself the unsavoury moniker of 'Boyfriend Batterer', young actress Emma Roberts experienced a potentially career-damaging incident at the start of the We're The Millers press tour. She and her boyfriend were involved in an altercation that left the Kickass actor Evan Peters, bloodied, bitten and bruised. The 22 year-old actress was arrested and held but soon released after Peters chose not to press charges. The incident impeded the positive press towards the film this time last month due to reporters only being interested in the alleged case of physical assault. However, it seems that a purely dodgy plotline is the main aspect souring critics' reviews upon the movie's release.

David isn't your classic drug dealer type - he sells pot here and there for the personal use of his buyers, but he certainly tries not to get involved with the more serious and deadly aspects of it. But when his large stash is stolen, he is forced to pay back a big-time dealer by venturing to Mexico to smuggle a 'small' shipment of marijuana across the border. However, he soon begins to release that it's not going to be at all easy to get across the border without being searched and so he hatches a plan to rope together a fake family called 'the Millers' to help him appear like an average tourist. He gets a young, slightly over-friendly teen friend of his to act as his son and pays an aggressive gutter punk to be his daughter, and his stripper friend to be his wife. However, things still don't go as smoothly as they'd like when their camper van breaks down, his 'son' is hospitalised after an allergic reaction to a spider bite and they are caught with the drugs by ruthless Mexican mobsters.
This brilliant comedy has been directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ('Dodgeball', 'The Mysteries of Pittsburgh') and written by Bob Fisher, Steve Faber ('Wedding Crashers'), Sean Anders, John Morris ('She's Out of My League') and Dan Fybel. 'We're The Millers' will hit UK cinemas everywhere on August 23rd 2013.
'The Millers' actress Emma Roberts was arrested after she allegedly turned on her boyfriend Evan Peters, leaving him bloodied.
Emma Roberts has attracted the wrong kind of attention after an argument between her and her boyfriend concerned other hotel guests to the extent that the police were called to break up the ugly scene. The young actress and her boyfriend Evan Peters were discovered post-scuffle by police, with Peters said to have had "obvious physical injuries," tells a source speaking to TMZ.com. The Kickass actor has a bloodied nose and what looked distinctly like a bite mark, leading to Roberts being arrest after it appeared she had inflicted the wounds upon her lover.

Sources close to the actress have claimed that both parties were using physical violence, but Roberts had not bitten her boyfriend. Roberts was held in custody but released hours later after Peters said he wouldn't be pressing charges, and the couple have not broken up over their very public tiff.

Jennifer Aniston's new movie could be a return to form for the former Friends actress.
Jennifer Aniston stripping in theWe're The Millerstrailer has predictably dominated all talk of Rawson Marshall Thurber's new comedy movie this week, though it's worth pointing out that this thing may actually be pretty good. Aniston strips down for Jason Sudeikis in the trailer and the pair become bound together on a doomed trip to Mexico to smuggle drugs back into the U.S. for a mobster - played by a horrendously miscast Ed Helms, it seems.
Sudeikis' character David forms a fake family made up of Aniston, Emma Roberts and Will Poulter who set off to Mexico in the hope of avoiding suspicion at the border. The comedy actor is always good value for money and steals the trailer (apart of Aniston stripping of course) when he realises how much marijuana he has to haul back to America, telling his boss, "This is not a smidge, you got me moving enough weed to kill Willie Nelson man!."
Watch the We're The Millers trailer:
At the end of the clip, Will Poulter gives us a word-perfect a cappella rendition of TLC's Waterfalls, before the original song closes things out. We're the Millers certainly looks funnier than Horrible Bosses and wouldn't have to do much to be a bigger commercial hit than Wanderlust, Aniston's 2012 film with Paul Rudd that grossed just $17.5 million domestically after receiving poor reviews.
Jennifer Aniston strips down as, err, a stripper in 'We're The Millers!'
Jennifer Aniston plays a stripper in her new comedy We're The Millers, with Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and Ed Helms. The internet virtually exploded on Thursday (June 23, 2013) when the first official trailer for the movie rolled out online, showing Aniston, 44, as a scantily clad stripper tasked with helping Jason's character David pull off an elaborate drug smuggle.
Jennifer Aniston had previously told her pal Chelsea Handler that she wore three bras in order to prevent herself from putting too much on the show for the role, though fans still get an eyeful in the new trailer! In the movie, Sudeikis puts together a fake family to drive an RV across to Mexico and retrieve drugs for Ed Helms' villainous character. Hilarity ensues after they meet a sexually experimental couple along the way!
As well as Jennifer Aniston stripping down, it's worth pointing out that We're The Miller might actually looks pretty funny. During one standout scene in the trailer, David realises how much marijuana he actually has to haul back to the U.S before telling Helms, "This is not a smidge, you got me moving enough weed to kill Willie Nelson man!". Also, watch out for Sudeikis' 'son' delivering a word-perfect rendition of TLC's 'Waterfalls'

Although this adventure's premise will appeal to children, and the child within us, the film itself is far too simplistic to be a classic. But at least the animation looks terrific, with swooping action and an inventive use of nature imagery. The result is relatively engaging, consistently entertaining and never remotely suspenseful.
The story begins as teen Mary Katherine, better known as MK (voiced by Seyfried), returns home to live with her mad-inventor dad (Sudeikis) after her mother dies. Dad's house is on the edge of the forest, where he is obsessed with discovering a miniature world of beings who keep the natural world running. But his focus on work has alienated everyone in his life, and MK is still struggling to break through to him. Then she has a freak encounter with the tiny Queen Tara (Knowles), who shrinks her to two inches tall. Suddenly she's working with the Queen's chief leafman Ronin (Farrell), a rogue soldier Nod (Hutcherson), and a goofy slug and snail duo (Ansari and O'Dowd) to save the forest from the evil Mandrake (Waltz).
The script eliminates all complexity in its depiction of good and evil. Mandrake is bent on destroying the forest for no real reason, trying to bring his creeping grey decay to what is otherwise an idyllic, magical world drenched in colourful flowers, verdant ferns and trickling brooks. In other words, it's so obvious who is going to win this battle that we never for a moment worry about our rag-tag group of heroes, no matter what violence they face. So we sit back and enjoy the animators' work. While the humans look like plastic dolls, the bugs, birds, plants and critters are simply astounding, and some of the action scenes are genuinely exhilarating.

The actress divulged some of her workout secrets and her policy on nudity.
Those, expecting Jennifer Aniston’s stripper role in We’re the Millers to come with a hefty amount of nudity, are in for a pretty big disappointment. Not only is the trailer completely PG, so is the film itself. In fact, in a recent guest appearance on Chelsea Lately, Aniston told host Chelsea Handler that she wore three bras during the stripper scenes, just to be on the safe side.
No nudity for Jennifer - the actress is keeping it PG.
Nevertheless, Jen’s outfits in the film are obviously pretty revealing, and the actress recently shared with Extra that she had to take some extra fitness measures to prepare for shooting. For Aniston that means one thing: yoga. The actress divulged to Extra the secret to her toned body – doubling up the amount of yoga she normally does with her instructor and friend, Mandy Inger.
Aniston and Sudeikis make for an excellent fake family.
Jennifer Aniston hasn’t been doing too well in terms of movies lately, with her latest film, Wanderlust, grossing just $17.5 million domestically, but at least the woman is keeping fit, as the trailer for We’re the Millers clearly shows. In the film, Aniston plays a stripper and so it’s only natural that she’d show a bit (or a lot) of skin in the trailer. Everything is kept strictly PG, of course, but it’s enough to make most women out there wonder what it is that Aniston is doing to look that good.
Anniston leaves behind her clean-cut image for this one.
As for those not enthralled with the prospect of a nude Jennifer, or with the plot of the film itself, you might be interested to know that Jason Sudeikis co-stars with her in Millers. The actor recently appeared in his final episode of Saturday Night Live – as a full-time castmember, at least - but he’s obviously not short of career opportunities after leaving that show.
'We're The Millers' also appears to be pretty funny, which is useful for a comedy.
Remember when the trailer for Horrible Bosses rolled out online? Yeah, the internet buckled under the weight of users frantically searching out Jennifer Aniston in her underwear. Well, the same thing's gonna happen with the first trailer for We're The Millers - Aniston's new movie with Jason Sudeikis and Ed Helms.
Sudeikis plays David, a guy earning a living by dealing a little pot here and there. However, when his marijuana his stolen, he is left having to pay a drugs boss (played by a rather miscast Helms) by embarking on a trip to Mexico to bring his latest shipment in. A young kid tells David that he'll probably get searched at the border by travelling alone, and so he devises a plan to form a fake family and enlists a local stripper (Aniston) to play his wife. The smugglers head off to Mexico in a traditional looking camper van, meeting a sexually experimental couple in the meantime. Oh, and there's Jennifer Aniston dancing around in her underwear. Yeah, there's that.
David isn't what you'd call a drug lord but he does earn a living by dealing pot here and there. However, when all his marijuana gets stolen, he is left having to pay a big-time drug criminal by embarking on a trip to Mexico to bring in his latest small shipment. A young teen who lives in his block informs him that he's most likely going to get searched at the border and, not accustomed to smuggling more than a pocketful, his efforts will be futile. Thus he decides to enlist his stripper neighbour to pretend to be his wife, the teen to be his son and an even younger gutter punk to be his daughter as he concocts a plan to pretend to be a normal family that will hopefully get overlooked as humble holidaymakers. However, things don't go as smoothly as they'd hoped as they wind up breaking down in their camper van, meeting a sexually experimental couple and getting busted by gun toting Mexican gangsters.
'We're The Millers' is the hilarious new comedy directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ('Dodgeball', 'The Mysteries of Pittsburgh') and written by Bob Fisher, Steve Faber ('Wedding Crashers'), Sean Anders, John Morris ('She's Out of My League') and Dan Fybel in his feature film debut. It is set to be released in the UK on August 23rd 2013.

A collection of random shorts that focus mainly on idiotic male behaviour, this portmanteau comedy is only occasionally amusing, never making anything of its astonishing cast. Frankly, we spend most of the time wondering how the filmmakers lured these A-listers to appear in these pointless, nasty little films. And while the premises have potential, not a single one has a decent punchline.
As a prank, two teens make up a banned online film called Movie 43. While their brainly little brother searches for it, he runs across a series of clips that mainly focus on awkward vulgarity between the sexes. Bitter exes (Culkin and Stone) have a rude exchange that's broadcast on a supermarket sound system. Pratt is shocked when his girlfriend (Faris) asks him to "poop" on her, and agrees because he loves her. Parents (Watts and Schreiber) homeschool their teen son (White) with the goal of showing him how excruciating life will be. Two pals (Scott and Knoxville) kidnap a leprechaun (Butler) who's reluctant to give them his gold. And a 1950s basketball coach (Howard) tries to convince his players that they're winners because they're black.
Others are dating scenarios: Winslet goes on a blind date with a guy (Jackman) who has testicles on his neck; Berry and Merchant play an increasingly deranged game of Truth or Dare in a Mexican restaurant; a pre-teen (Bennett) can't cope when his young date (Moretz) has her first period; Batman (Sudeikis) messes up Robin's (Long) attempt at speed-dating; Banks struggles to cope with her new boyfriend's (Duhamel) obsessive cartoon cat. There are also a few random advert spoofs, including one for the naked-woman shaped iBabe, which leads to trouble for the company CEO (Gere).

If you haven’t had enough of Jennifer Lawrence yet (don’t even try to deny it, we’re just as obsessed as you), this will be good news to you – fresh off her Golden Globe victory, complete with a little bit of controversy, the Silver Linings Playbook actress will be hosting SNL tonight!
That’s right, we’ll all be able to watch Lawrence, arguably the year’s most touted actress, in all of her slightly awkward, foot-in-mouth glory (in a good way). The evening will also feature The Lumineers as the traditional musical guest. The promo for the show features Jennifer and Jason Sudeikis, parodying a couple of the actress’s big hits this year. Along with Jennifer being “awarded” the hosting spot and subsequently being played off before finishing her acceptance speech, the promo also features Jason Sudeikis in Bradley Cooper’s now infamous garbage bag getup from Silver Linings ("Trying to drop some of this winter weight .. B. Coop-style!"), and, of course, a reference to The Hunger Games, which sees Lawrence shooting a bow and arrow – straight into Bobby Moynihan. It’s funny, if not the most clever sketch and, in our humble opinion, it should certainly prompt you to watch SNL tonight. Watch the promo for the show below.
If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.
With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.

Will Ferrell's funniest movie in years, this is a silly comedy with a terrible sentimental streak, but the political satire running through it is dead on. In fact, the film's opening act is razor-sharp as it lampoons election campaigning with knowing jabs at corporate sponsorship, incumbent laziness and the difficulty of being an honest candidate. So it's disappointing when the film becomes soppy and stupid.
Ferrell creates a memorable comical character in Cam Brady, a five-term North Carolina congressman up for re-election. He's sure he will coast his way back into office, and is only mildly worried when naive local goofball Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) runs against him. Marty certainly isn't ready for the slick attacks orchestrated by Cam's campaign manager (Sudeikis). But two wealthy brothers (the underused Lithgow and Aykroyd) are bankrolling Marty's campaign in the hopes of turning the district into a Chinese sweatshop, so they hire a ruthless press officer (McDermott) to whip Marty into shape. And the game is on.
Even though the characters are cartoonish, what they do is eerily authentic. Cam is a smooth operator with strong hair and a womanising streak. He also believes he can do whatever he wants as long as he mentions "America, Jesus and freedom" in every speech. By contrast, Marty is camp and silly, with a plump wife (Baker) and kids, plus a pair of pet pugs that Cam instantly labels as "Communist Chinese dogs!" Their clashes are a riot of parody and slapstick, some of which is sharply pointed (neither says anything substantial) and some is just ridiculous (including a hilarious cameo from Uggy, the dog from The Artist).

Mary Katherine is a regular teenage girl who somehow mysteriously appears in an enchantingly beautiful forest full of talking slugs and miniature soldiers. In this strange new world, a war is waging between the forces of good and those who do everything within their power to try to defend nature, and the forces of evil; those who are responsible for its destruction. Wishing she'd dreamt it all at first, Mary eventually joins a team of weird but friendly characters to help protect this world as well as her own which is also, consequentially, under threat.

Prior to the unopposed congressman Cam Brady's fifth term election, two affluent CEOs decide enough is enough after Brady commits a major public faux pas. They bring in a second candidate to rival Brady and allow them to gain control over North Carolina. Their candidate, Marty Huggins, though less charismatic than Brady but equally as much of an intellectual vacuum, is the na<ve local Tourism Center director who, with the help of his new supporters and a ruthless campaign manager, quickly becomes a genuine competitor incurring many more of Brady's public indiscretions.
