In the film, David Burke (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whoseclientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, hehas his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keepa low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that nogood deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teensand winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing hisstash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier,Brad (Ed Helms).
In order to wipe the slate clean—and maintain a clean bill ofhealth—David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringingBrad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of hisneighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny(Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey(Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, twopretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the “Millers” are headedsouth of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to endwith a bang.
