Great movie

I think kids 10 and up should be able to watch this movie
age 18+

The old test pattern days would be better viewing.

Great actors but stupid 12 year old level bathroom jokes and the worst laugh track ever heard. If the pilot was the best, future shows will only go downhill. It's a loser and should be gone by.....5 episodes. Of course with Americans taste, this will probably be a big hit

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

THE MILLERS might not be the most sophisticated show, and the humor is a little crass. However, the terminally immature may still find themselves laughing at jokes, such as when Nathan complains that his ex made him eat "quinoa" and another character mishears it as a reference to oral sex. Hey, we haven't heard that joke before! Point in The Millers' favor! (But do you want to hear that joke sitting next to your teenager?)

In addition, Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges are old pros, and they're terrific. They have great chemistry with Will Arnett as their son and crackle whenever they're on-screen. The goings-on are a bit silly and sitcom-y, but these seasoned pros sell it.
