The movie opens when David Clark played by Jason Sudekis runs into an old high school classmate. Clark is a lifelong low end pot dealer and his old high school friend a stereotypical family man approaching middle age and dreaming of those good old wild days. It is not obvious at first but this opening scene sets the stage for the ultimate irony of the film.
Along the wild and whacky path the audience is introduced to a reluctant but competent stripped played by Jennifer Aniston, a very punish teen runaway girsl portrayed by Emma Roberts and a nerdy young guy played by English actor Will Poulter. And damn near every scene evokes a sea of uproarious laughter. This is one hilarious movie albeit more than just a little crude movie.
The drug dealer is faced with an ugly dilemma when his earnings are stolen and his boss offers him only one means od redemption, to go to Mexico and bring back a huge shipment of marijuana. David Clark the drug dealer determines that his only chance is to fake a family vacation thereby distracting the attention of the border guards. He assembles his crew and sets off on what proves to be an unending stream of danger basking in hilarity.
Oddly he is befriended by a DEA agent and ultimately the fake family, the Millers, takes on a far deeper meaning than was ever intended. This film will likely not receive any Academy Award nominations but it has won my heart as one of the funniest movies of all times complete with a happy ending.
