We're The Millers Reviews: How Does the Fake Family Fare?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Right on the heels of Johnny Depp and company blaming critics for The Lone Ranger flop, the We're the Millers reviews are in. 

Will Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston have the same opinion of critics as The Lone Ranger crew? We'll likely never know but looking at these reviews for the film opening today? Yikes.

While not as scathing as The Canyons reviews, things aren't looking too hot for the comedy.

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. -- Inkoo Kang, Village Voice

It's easy to point out the faults in We're the Millers because it is definitely not a complete comedy, but it is the funniest one this summer. -- Matthew Razak, Flixist.com

Aniston is a gifted comic actor, and she is in amazing shape. Sudeikis, too, has serious comic chops and experience. But this material is weak and lacks warmth in spite of its hypocrisy. -- James Verniere, Boston Herald

"We're the Millers" plays like a "Saturday Night Live" skit that goes on too long. -- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

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. -- Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

Loud and annoying? Occasionally. Funny? Sometimes. Likely to be noticed by filmgoers six months from now? Not really. -- Ben Keningsberg, AV Club
