When small time pot dealer David Clark (Jason Sudeikis) gets robbed of all his money and product, his "boss" Brad Gurdlinger (Ed Helms) forces him into picking up "a smidge" of marijuana from Mexico to pay back his debts. In an attempt to look more wholesome and to not give away his pot smuggling antics, he recruits a runaway named Casey (Emma Roberts), a dork from his building named Kenny (Will Poulter), and a stripper who also lives in his building named Rose (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his family for the week. When they reach Mexico, the "smidge" of marijuana becomes a metric ton. Forced to conceal it in their RV, the "family" attempts to trek across the international border back to Colorado to deliver the goods.

This movie is hilarious! If you're not bothered by drugs, sexual references, cussing, or full frontal male nudity, this movie is just fine for you. All of the actors mesh very well together surprisingly, and they all play off of one another very well to make an overall enjoyable film. Even the bit players in this movie (Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, and Ed Helms) were great. The laughs kept coming throughout their trip as this would-be family ends up getting closer to one another. There aren't many twists, it's just a straightforward comedy that will keep you laughing and entertained for about two hours.

My Rating: 8/10
BigJ's Rating: 8.5/10
IMDB's Rating: 7.1/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 42%
Do we recommend this movie: Yes!
