I will be brief; mainly because there’s really not much to say. This is a B- comedy with some career-killing casting that made me laugh two, maybe, three times. David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a two-bit drug dealer with a cushy suburban sales territory. He finds himself in a bit of a pickle when his stash and his cash are stolen. In order to satisfy his supplier (Ed Helms), he must graduate from dealer to trafficker and move a supply of drugs across the Mexican Border. To create a believable travel story, he recruits a makeshift family, rents an RV and the holiday road trip begins.

OK, I get it’s Hollywood, but Jason Sudeikis as a drug dealer? Ed Helms as a supplier? Jennifer Aniston as a stripper? Emma Roberts as an angry social outcast? Why not cast Reese Witherspoon as the awkward geek who doesn’t fit in, and Zac Efron as the bullied nerd with a perpetual wedgie? In any event, this movie might pass muster as a rental…on an extremely rainy day…when your cable is out. It’s a 5.
