Year 3 Day 20

movie: We are the Millers
starring: Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston
genre: Comedy,
year: 2013
format: Shaw Video On Demand

A neighbourhood drug dealer is asked to smuggle a large amount of drugs over the boarder from Mexico, and hires people in his building to pretend to be his family in order to have the perfect cover.

Sounds like a mess. But, it actually ended up being a really funny film. There were moments when all I could think was that it seemed to be a little bit like the opening plot of From Dusk till Dawn.  
There were moments when it just seemed to be like watching mud, such as when the "pot baby" is run over by a truck and they give the lamest excuse for having lied to the other vacationing family. 
I could see this having a sequel in the style of the old Chevy Chase National Lampoon Vacation films.
