Not all of We’re the Millers‘ jokes are in the ubiquitous trailers. A lot of them are, but not all.
Plus the trailers do have a lot of jokes.
Wacky drug-smuggling action serves to unite this unconventional family rather than drive the plot, but considering the real chemistry between Sudeikis, Aniston, Roberts and Poulter, this is rightly so.
A few jokes and twists are telegraphed but this hardly matters in the company of these characters and that of the supporting cast: Ken Marino, Nick Offerman, the wonderful Kathryn Hahn.
Expect a sequel. Expect me to go see it.
Cross-country van travelling with a pseudo-family hasn’t been this enjoyable since Scooby-Doo.
