Lots of laughs in fake fam­ily com­edy

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

Casey (Emma Roberts), he de­vises a fool­proof plan.

One fake wife, two pre­tend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the Millers are headed south of the bor­der for a unique Fourth of July week­end. The irony of this low-brow com­edy is that it is not the in­tended crude jokes and bad lan­guage for easy laughs that works best in its favour, but the against-type cast­ing that in­jects an un­ex­pected no­tion of in­no­cence in scenes that could oth­er­wise be of­fen­sive. Of­fer­ing some chuck­les along the way, the film de­liv­ers what it prom­ises - a crass Hol­ly­wood tale about drugs, sex and fam­ily - with a glossy end­ing.
