For MATURE preteens its ok.

Despite its insured plot were the millers is hilarious and enjoyable making you love all the characters. Rated 15 for language and brief nudity it really isn’t that bad. The only bad scene is when Jennifer Anniston does a strip which isn’t appropriate for all ages and a scene where you see a boy testicles when he gets bitten by a tarantula. Overall hilarious great modern comedy

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

There's no major reason to avoid meeting the Millers, the pseudo-family at the heart of this road-trip comedy; they're hilariously dysfunctional and mostly entertaining. Certainly, there are worse ways to spend two hours. But there's no truly compelling reason to rush out and watch WE'RE THE MILLERS, either. The biggest highlights of the film aren't even the leads, but supporting cast members Kathryn Hahn and Nick Offerman, who kill it as two fuddy-duddies with a tiny streak of kink.

The biggest problem can be summed up in Aniston's stripper scenes; Rose is described as being an amazing dancer, but Aniston's gyrations prove tepid at best. The same can be said of the movie. Though there are plenty of chuckle-inducing moments, the real belly laughs are few and far between. The material is funny, yes. But groundbreaking? Definitely not.
