The quaint idea of the nuclear family is one that’s been skewered a thousand different ways. It’s a portrait of American domesticity that never really existed except on television in the 1950s. We’re the Millers tries to knock the nuclear family ideal and yet feels strangely beholden to it. Filled with hilarious, mean-spirited comedy, Rawson Marshall Thurber‘s movie swings between a cold, dead heart completely immune from sentimentality and then over to a mushy center where characters inadvertently bond and learn important life lessons. The space in between is filled with plenty of great jokes that you’ll struggle to remember mere moments after leaving the theater.
