With summer road trips in full swing and the need to beat the heat while stuffing your face with popcorn for two hours comes We’re The Millers, a film about fake families and drug smugglers that will have you thinking twice before entering the RV of a stranger. Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis pose as good-intentioned, all-American parents to Emma Roberts and Will Poulter, when in reality they’re scheming to sneak a “smidge” of marijuana across the Mexican border. With a cast of fan favorites, stripper humor, and at least one testicle joke, read on for the most important takeaways from this flick.
1. Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis hate each other (again).
These two Denver neighbors are less than cordial at first, preferring to make digs at their occupations (drug dealer and stripper, respectively) than exchange pot roast recipes. Their witty, often profanity-laced banter can be fairly mean, but unlike Horrible Bosses, at least they’re not trying to kill each other.
2. Will Poulter is your new crush.
The 20-year-old Englishman sings, drops trou, and makes out with not one but two of the film’s leading ladies. (Jealous, dudes?) If that wasn’t enough to get you in the multiplex seats, the fact that he’s English and starring in next year’s adaptation of The Maze Runner should make you a loyal fan ready and willing to send birthday gifts year after year.
3. The film supports the resurgence of TLC.
The ’90s R&B queens have announced an official comeback via an upcoming album, tour, and VH1’s own biopic hitting screens this fall, and a certain family sing-along only reinforces the public’s healthy appetite for more from T-Boz and Chilli. You’ve probably belted out “Waterfalls” during a never-ending road trip, but can you nail Left Eye’s rap?
4. Fans of NBC comedies have reason to swoon.
Not only are SNL alum Sudeikis and Parks and Rec’s Ron Swanson getting handsy in a tent for two, Ed Helms (The Office) has a supporting role, and *spoiler alert* Scott Adsit (30 Rock) is an Easter egg sent to please all of us still mourning the loss of TGS. Plus, Jen and Jason’s fake kids aren’t young enough to remember Friends.
5. Jennifer Aniston is a stripper.
The previews don’t lie, folks. And it’s hot.
6. The credits are worth sticking around for.
Everyone loves the ’90s, sing-alongs, and comedy pros breaking on camera, right?
7. Kathryn Hahn is our hero.
Don’t sleep on Edie Fitzgerald. Just because she wears visors and is prone to telling lengthy stories about her first experience with tampons, doesn’t mean she’s not trying to step out of her comfort zone and spice things up. And whether you’ve loved Hahn since How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days or Step Brothers, her performance as the seemingly prim and proper housewife with the most piercing shriek of all-time will be a new favorite.
8. It’ll make you glad you watched the entire season of Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules.
Laura-Leigh really did have a movie with Jennifer Aniston! Take that, Stassi.
9. Emma Roberts teaches us how to be resourceful.
Going from couch to couch, her iPhone-toting “homeless” character is more street savvy than she may look. In times of trouble, she knows exactly how to land a little extra cash: looting newspaper racks. Almost as ingenious as Jimmy McNulty’s method of snagging a free copy of the Baltimore Sun!
10. No family vacation will ever compare.
Unless you were raised by strangers who used you as a drug mule while they stole from Mexican drug lords and forced you to escape multiple near-death experiences. If so, then upgrade that popcorn and soda–you deserve it.
We’re The Millers opens August 7.
