Intro for August 8, 2013
Jennifer Aniston’s We’re The Millers is currently sitting at around 35% on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s actually…not bad. At least not in comparison to, say, The Bounty Hunter or Just Go With It. So more proof that when you remove Gerard Butler and Adam Sandler from the equation, the movies actually become less sh-tty.
While the reviews aren’t great for We’re The Millers, right now they’re expecting it to open over $30 million, maybe even close to $40 million. This is very encouraging for Jen and especially encouraging for Jason Sudeikis. On the downside, it may be too encouraging. As The Daily Beast noted yesterday, Aniston’s on a 3 movie vulgar streak – Horrible Bosses, Wanderlust, and now We’re The Millers. It’s like baseball, right? A 0.666 batting average in this game is considered pretty good. Good enough to keep going? Moving in to her mid-to-late 40s, cursing, sexing, stripping, and R-rated might be where Jen’s career continues to live for a while.
