Dome Pondering Movie Review: We're the Millers (2013)

What is it about? 

A veteran neighborhood drug dealer creates a fake family of interesting people in his neighborhood to transport a huge shipment of drugs from Mexico into the U.S.

Who is in it? 

Jason Sudeikis - David Clark

Jennifer Aniston - Rose O'Reilly

Will Poulter - Kenny Rosmore

Emma Roberts - Casey Mathis

Favorite Scene: 

While driving the RV, Kenny is bitten on the testicles by a tarantula that was loose since their trip to Mexico. 

Favorite Quote: 

"No regrets, really? Not even a single letter?" [In reference to Scotty P.'s neck tattoo which read "No Ragrets"]


We're the Millers is a film that will take you by surprise. From the trailer, one would think that this film is just another cheap attempt at humor and comedy, the kind that relies on over-the-top dialogue and ridiculously graphic nature to get it's point across - you know the kind. 

However, We're the Millers is actually genuinely entertaining. The plot is rather simple and elementary, but it is filled with moments and subtle things in the film that are laugh out loud funny. "Baby LeBron" and the several funny moments that include Kenny perfectly describe this film.

Jason Sudeikis is his typical funny self, and Jennifer Aniston was just as solid in her role as Rose in the film. 

We're the Millers isn't a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it is funny, engaging, and overall entertaining. And that's all you can ask from a movie of it's kind. 

Grade: 3/5

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"

Imagine, if we can see the dents and scratches, the smashes and chaos,  on the daily armor, each of us put on. Just imagine. 

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2024 MLB Season

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports After an off-season where the Los Angeles Dodgers spent the equivalent of a nation's GDP to acquire talent - I'm not sure if that's factual, but it felt like it - the 2024 MLB Season is finally here.  Sure, this Yankees fan is not just annoyed with the big spending of the Dodgers, but yeah, secretly envious as well. That used to be us, man!  Regardless, baseball is back on the docket. While my beloved New York Knicks have my attention and all of my heart, including what has been a fun March Madness period for men's and women's basketball, it's soothing to have baseball back. I can't explain what it is, but baseball just does that for me.  Nonetheless, let's do what we do in this post every year. Here are my wacky predictions and wild guesses for the 2024 season.  --- STANDINGS (WINS) AL EAST Orioles - 93 Yankees - 90 Blue Jays - 85 Red Sox - 82 Rays - 80 AL CENTRAL Twins - 88 Tigers - 86 Guardians - 81 Royals - 70 White Sox -
