Published Aug. 10, 2013

"We're the Millers" is deeply committed to following the road trip formula. If the film was a driver, it'd have its eyes firmly glued to its Garmin, attentively listening to the creepy robotic voice's directions. But it's amazing how much forgiveness an unassuming, by-the-books comedy like "We're the Millers" can generate with some solid laughs and an enjoyable cast.

"Marley & Me" cuts too close to the bone
