We're The Millers is definitely an entertaining film. It keeps you interested and engaged, and is very funny, but it isn't roll-on-the-floor hilarious. Like most comedies that come out these days, it has it's shining moments, but it's also got it's scenes that aren't anything special. Parents need to know that they should leave their tweens, and younger or impressionable teens at home.
- Sexual Material/Nudity: (5/10)
One of the characters is a stripper, and you see her dance suggestively a couple times, however we do not see her naked. (PG-13 level)
We see a fellow stripper with a tattoo that says "B*ner Garage". (Hard PG-13 level)
A woman fondles another woman's breasts (more intended to be humorous than sexual). (PG-13 level)
A boy is caught kissing his fake mom and fake sister by the girl he is interested in, while they are trying to teach him how to kiss her. This results in awkward conversation. (Once again, more intended for laughs than to be outright sexual, however the joke is somewhat crude and may offend some). (Hard PG-13 level)
Many crude jokes throughout about a variety of subjects including anal sex, oral sex, virginity, swinging, however these are all in talk and none of these are shown visually. (Varying levels ranging from PG-13 to R)
One very brief and non-sexual (however, fairly detailed) view of a boy's swollen genitals after he is bit by a spider that crawls into his shorts (this is intended for laughs). (Mild R level)
For an R rated comedy, this film is surprisingly tamer on sexual material than you would expect.
- Language: (9/10)
Strong language and crude humor throughout. The profanity in this film is pretty constant, full of F bombs (100+ of them) and just about everything else. Lots of milder profanity such as the H, D, A, B, and S words. Many crude terms for male and female genitalia. However, there is no discriminatory language in this film. (R level)
- Violence: (3/10)
The only violence in the film is mild and played for laughs.
A character is shot but appears to be alright. (Mild PG-13 level)
A few fistfights or instances of physical contact that end with bloody noses. (PG level)
Some peril and threat throughout, however it's not intense. (Mild PG-13 level)
- Drug Content: (5/10)
The plot of the movie is about smuggling marijuana across the border, which means you see lots of pot on display, and there are many references to pot throughout. However, you never see anyone smoking pot or doing any other drugs in the film, resulting in the drug content being pretty tame apart from the film's themes. Plus, the films themes are played for laughs and aren't meant to be taken seriously, which makes them seem even milder. (Hard PG-13 level)
Some mild drinking, and some cigarette smoking. (PG level)
- Frightening and Intense Scenes: (3/10)
Goes along with the film's violence. Basically some comic peril and threat throughout.
Total Content: (25/50) Best suited to a more mature audience.
Age Suggestion: I think most teens 15 and older can handle the film's content, as the primary reason why it is R is for it's language.
Suggested MPAA Rating: R for pervasive language, crude humor including brief nudity, suggestive material, and for drug content.
