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.
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.
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.
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.
