Reviews: We're the Millers (2013)

were_the_millersReviews for this film from our members:

  • Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: It’s not consistently funny enough to like, but it’s got enough chuckles and appeal to not dislike. While the cast and creators have provided more enjoyable comic outings in the past and I hoped for a little more based on this late summer sleeper’s crowd-pleasing reception, this still warrants a look.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: I’ll forget about “We’re the Millers” in a week, but I can’t say I didn’t laugh
  • Bob Cashill @ Popdose.com
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: There’s a few laughs to be had along the way and if there’s any justice we should see a lot more of the truly talented Will Poulter, but this well-hyped comedy isn’t as funny as its well cut trailer would indicate.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [A]n ensemble comedy in which every character and every actor click into place.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Distastefful & mediocre, concluding with obligatory outtakes that are funnier than the film itself.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: All aboard the family road trip! The convoluted premise wants to be a variation on 1983’s Vacation with Chevy Chase, but unfortunately exhibits the laughs of RV with Robin Williams.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Reason No. 34,075 to legalize drugs: it would eliminate painfully unfunny comedies like this one. Comedy shouldn’t make you pity the comedians.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: We’re the Millers doesn’t shatter the laugh-o-meter, but it’s a fun time and offers a decent enough buzz for the end of the summer.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • [New – 3/20/14] | Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: We’re the Millers may play by conventional, modern broad comedy standards, but it’s so outrageously funny at times that you can almost forget the overbearing strictures of the script.
  • Jason McKiernan @ Film Racket
    • Excerpt: We’re the Millers, though familiar in its setup and old-fashioned in its emotion, is still a fun and rollicking lark.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: It’s Miller time!
  • Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live
    • Excerpt: Sudeikis usually doesn’t have to work this hard for laughs; he’s just naturally funny. The giggles that eventually materialize here are entirely a result of his dogged efforts.
  • Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: It’s raunchy, clever and envelope-pushing, but never insincere or mean. We’re the Millers is not appropriate for family members of all ages, but it is appropriate for anyone who has a family.
  • Josh Spiegel @ Sound on Sight
    • Excerpt: We’re The Millers is a mighty schizophrenic movie, sometimes shuffling from plot point to plot point as if you can literally see a committee of studio executives hovering next to the actors, offering notes about how likable the characters should be or which touchstones of popular culture should be referenced.
