For the second week in a row, "We're the Millers" was at No. 1 for movies on demand from Nov. 25 to Dec. 1, 2013, according to Rentrak. A veteran pot dealer (played by Jason Sudeikis) creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico. So he recruits a stripper (played by Jennifer Aniston) and two teen misfits (played by Emma Roberts and Will Poulter) to pose as his wholesome family, who call themselves the Millers. "We're the Millers" also stars Ed Helms, Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn. "We're the Millers" got mostly negative reviews from critics but was a huge hit at the box office.

"Red 2" debuted at No. 2. In "Red 2," the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process. Starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox and Neal McDonough. "Red 2" got mixed-to-negative reviews and did mediocre business at the box office.

"2 Guns" dropped from No. 2 to No. 3. For 12 months, DEA agent Robert “Bobby” Trench (played by Denzel Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Michael “Stig” Stigman (played by Mark Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Bobby and Stig are suddenly disavowed by their respective superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way. Critics had mixed reactions to "2 Guns," which did solid business at the box office.

"The Heat" rose from No. 5 to No. 4. Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (played by Sandra Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (played by Melissa McCarthy) couldn’t be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. "The Heat" was a big hit with critics and movie audiences.

"Man of Steel" fell from No. 3 to No. 5. A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind. Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue and Russell Crowe. "Man of Steel" got mixed reviews from critics, but that didn't stop the movie from being one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.

Another debut in the Top 10 worth noting: "Jobs" debuted at No. 6.

Here are the Top 5 movies on demand for the week of Nov. 25 to Dec. 1, 2013:

1. We're the Millers (No. 1 in the previous week)

2. Red 2 (debut)
