Sudeikis has always been a charming comedic actor. He 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.

We're The Millers certainly doesn't push any boundaries or break new ground, but it's just funny enough to garner a tepid "meh."

More like We're the Fillers. Despite having a half-decent premise, this generic American comedy squanders every single one of its comedic opportunities.

A bland and expected comedy wearing the skin of something dark and naughty.

This film's eagerness to please functions as a slow poison, draining The Millers of its vitality by rendering its characterization uneven, its potential undeveloped, and its plot predictable and stupid.

It never shifts into third gear as a great comedy but there are worse places to be stuck than in second with this family.

This has a script that initially manages a surprise or two and nearly makes you like the characters until the ideas (or the dope) run out, and everyone's forced to ham it up, swear their heads off and drop their pants for serious scrotum jokes.

Like a long road trip with the family, this one speeds along without any bumps.

The filmmakers lack the courage of their convictions, falling back on moments of egregiously false sentimentality whenever the material threatens to turn dark.

After an irreverent first act that seems determined to give the finger to family-bonding clichés, the movie then proceeds to embrace every single one of them.

More proof that Jason Sudeikis is doomed to be a second banana and never a leading man.

A very rude road movie prone to too many second-gear kangaroo jumps ( ... ) but [Will Poulter] is sure to be dining out on the fun of his kissing education for years.

Some of the jokes are funny. If one was to compile all the good snippets and scenes into a highlight reel, it might run about six minutes.

Everyone on screen is slumming a little in this silly comedy.

By ending with outtakes that wind up being the funniest part of the film, "We're the Millers" basically confesses that its talented cast would have been much better off untethered from the pedestrian screenplay.

The crux of the humor depends on the Sudeikis and Aniston characters bickering in a way that spells l-o-v-e, but the screenplay spells it a-g-g-r-a-v-a-t-i-o-n instead.

Pretty much no one will buy Jennifer Aniston as a veteran stripper, and the film veers from funny-stupid into the merely stupid.

For every laugh there's something that will make you want to hurl an object at the screen.

I'm baffled how you can throw this many relatively funny people at an idea this blatantly down-the-middle and end up with something like this.

Truth is, I laughed at "We're the Millers," more than once.
