New on DVD: ‘We’re the Millers’ starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis

Posted 12:00am on Monday, Nov. 18, 2013

DVD We’re the Millers: Anchored by breakout performances from Jason Sudeikis and Will Poulter, this is a raunchy, hilarious and ultimately sweet-natured riff on the road-trip comedy. The film wastes little time establishing its straightforward premise. Low-level pot dealer David (Sudeikis) is robbed, and forced by his friend and boss, Brad (Ed Helms), to head south of the border and return an RV full of weed. In order to avoid suspicion from the authorities, David recruits a fake “family”: stripper neighbor Rose (Jennifer Aniston), troubled runaway Casey (Emma Roberts) and awkward teen Kenny (Poulter). The film sags in places but shines when the cast, fueled by tremendous chemistry, is allowed to cut loose. We’re the Millers arrives at a familiar destination, but the scenery along the way is riotously, refreshingly funny. On DVD/UltraViolet and Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Combo Pack
