When a small-time pot dealer gets mugged, he needs to find a way to pay back his supplier. Agreeing to smuggle in a major stash from Mexico, he rounds up a fake family to act as his cover, and they head for the border in an RV.
That movie is stupid. Typical American blockbuster, with loud sense of humor, girls teasing the adolescent guy, guys teasing women because they don't know how to say they are pretty, or the right one. A little puerile after all. But... I gotta say the road-trip format, Jennifer Aniston, and that kid Will Poulter altogether actually make it work. Not a brainy movie, just a loud comedy, but it does the job.
