Raunchy ‘Millers’ Trailer Hopes to Recapture ‘Horrible’ Magic

The red-band trailer for We’re the Millers was released today. The film stars Horrible Bosses costars Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston as two low-rent shady characters posing as a married couple to smuggle marijuana from Mexico. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball) and has Sudekis playing a low-rent pot dealer who ropes a stripper played by Aniston to pretent to be his wife. Emma Roberts and Will Poulter stars as the couple’s kids. Also appearing are Ed Helms, Ken Marino, Nick Offerman, and Kathryn Hahn. The film is scheduled for release on August 9.

There are plenty of familiar faces here, and the premise sounds promising. The material in the red-band trailer is raunchy, though it’s not what I would call hilarious. More than ever, it’s clear to see a Chevy Chase influence with Sudeikis’ persona and not just because of the road-trip-gone-wrong plot reminiscent of Vacation. Nice to see Helms playing against type this time, though. A green-band trailer is also available.

Plot description:

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 to wipe 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.
