We're the MillersClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that We're the Millers is a funny (if formulaic) "hard R" comedy (starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston) about a pseudo-family going on an unusual road trip. Although it ultimately has a fairly heartwarming message about the definition of family, this is far from a family movie: The "father" is a drug dealer turned smuggler, and his motley crew (including a stripper who poses as his wife) gets into all sorts of mishaps and danger due to his new gig. Expect lots of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), sexually charged scenes, raunchy conversations with graphic sexual references, and scantily clad women. And, of course, tons of pot; though no one is prominently shown using, the characters wrangle piles of marijuana over the course of the movie.
- Sexual Content
- Some sexy dancing by a stripper; at the club where she works, women are seen in bras and thongs, and one has a very suggestive tattoo. Other scenes with scantily clad women. One teenager gives French kissing lessons to another; an older woman joins them. In a non-sexual scene, a teenager's genitals, stung by a spider, are shown in close-up. Plenty of sexual jokes/references, many of them quite crude (references to anal and oral sex, swinging, sex toys, etc.).
- A villain shoves a gun into a guy's mouth and threatens to shoot it; later, he fires the gun many times. Lots of fistfights (and also fights involving other makeshift weapons, including a coffee cup). Vehicles crash into each other; a gang robs a teenager of her iPhone, and a fight subsequently ensues.
- Frequent use of words including "f--k," "s--t," "damn," "bitch," "d--k," "c--k," "c--t," "hell," "ass," "a--hole," "goddamn," "oh my God," and more.
- Social Behavior
- Amid the over-the-top comedy is the notion that you can make your own family from people who care about you. Also, that no one is irredeemable.
- An iPhone, an iPad, and an Apple computer are either name-dropped or shown prominently. Also, Dodge.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- The lead character is a pot dealer, and he's roped into smuggling a trailer's worth of pot (much of which is seen). But no one is actually shown using. Drinking in a club and other situations.
