From the director of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and the writing team behind Wedding Crashers comes the story of a wholesome family on a fun-filled vacation; at least that’s what they’re telling the border patrol. We’re the Millers features an all-star comedic cast of Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, Ed Helms, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, and surprisingly many more fine actors. Sudeikis and Aniston have previously worked terrifically together in Horrible Bosses and look to have great chemistry in their new film. The story revolves around a pot dealer (Sudeikis) who fulfills a debt to a drug lord by moving product from Mexico back to the US. To throw off suspicion, he poses as a vacationing family man and recruits his stripper neighbor (Aniston), a runaway teen (Roberts), and an awkward virgin (Poulter) to pose as his doting family. Audiences will have their sides splitting watching this cabal of deviants struggle to act normal to avoid going to jail. Need showtimes? Check here.

Pixar’s Car’s franchise may have ended, but the concept is reaching new heights with the release of Planes. While not produced by Pixar, the film was created by DisneyToon Studios; the animation studio behind such beloved classics from my childhood as The Goofy Movie and Duck Tales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. Planes is the first filmed in a planned trilogy featuring a variety of airborne characters. This one features a plucky cropdusting plane (voiced by Dane Cook) who dreams of becoming a successful racer. The only problem is that he wasn’t built for speed, and has a pretty large fear of heights. Featuring the voice talents of Gabriel Iglesias, Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sinbad, and even Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards as fighter jets (Iceman and Goose!), Planes provides entertainment for both kids and the adults along for the ride. Showtimes!
