The movie's biggest problem is in its central casting choice. Sudeikis and Aniston are likable in such similar ways — their self-deprecating charm, understated comic delivery, girl- and guy-next-door good looks, fundamental decency. It's as if the actors actually came from the same, stable, sweet, heartland family. But they are definitely not the Millers.

Funny man Sudeikis is still in need to a film role that improves on, or differs from, the "Saturday Night Live" gig he only recently left. And for Aniston, if you were hoping for a well-crafted comedy that suits and stretches the popular "Friends" alum creatively — more along the lines of 2002's "The Good Girl" or 2006's "Friends With Money" than 2010's "The Bounty Hunter" or 2011's "Horrible Bosses" (which didn't serve Sudeikis well either) — the wait continues.

If, however, you've been dying to see how Aniston would handle a stripper pole, "We're the Millers" might be just what you're looking for.
