Movie review score

What’s it about?
A long-time drug dealer (Jason Sudeikis) has to create a fake family (including Jennifer Aniston as a stripper) to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico. Unsurprisingly it goes wrong and weird.

What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: I can’t quite say it’s bad but it’s a little sad that the best laugh is actually a prank in the credits. It’s a pretty run-of-the-mill comedy and despite the quirkiness of the plot, the promised potential never quite eventuates. In fact the characters end up cliched and the whole thing becomes mundanely predictable.

It features good acting and even a minor surprise or two but the laughs are a little lacking. Overall it’s okay-ish but wait for the DVD if you must see it.

One Response so far.

    I thought this movie was exceptionally funny. Yes, it was predictable at times – but I don’t think that completely killed the story line and I still laughed a lot. One thing I did learn however, is that I’d definitely choose Jennifer over Angelina any day. She’s hot and she proves in this film she’s still got it.
