We’re the Millers

I have to admit, I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did. I’d heard it was funny, so decided to give it a shot.  I wasn’t sure what to think when it’s about a drug dealer who needs to assemble a fake family so he can blend in while he transports a giant shipment of marijuana into the United States from Mexico.  And it sounded like a goofy setup with his “wife” being a stripper and his “kids” being a girl off the street and a geeky neighbor of his.  But I was laughing the whole time!  And for a fairly long movie, the time just flew.  I liked every person in each of their roles, and overall, it was a bunch of scenes and lines that seemed to hit just the right note of being funny and clever instead of stupid and idiotic.  It was nice seeing them all get closer and almost like a real family on their trip when they all started out alone and not really having anyone, too.  There was language and sexual situations and gross things, like a lot of movies, but none of it ever really felt “that” out of place for some reason.  I liked it more than I feel like I should have – but it was really funny!
