We’re the Millers

Another raunchy comedy that’s actually a celebration of conservative middle class values. With a little editing this could be a Disney family comedy out of the 1970s. To try and avoid that confusion, there’s enough strong language to bump the rating, and just a touch of nudity. Despite scenes in a strip club, we only get male nudity, but that’s okay. Male genitals are funny looking at the best of times, and some folks feel a little more male nudity in films is long overdue.

Across Canada and overseas the ratings are consistent. All agencies in Canada rated it 14A (Quebec’s was the similar 13+). Australia and the UK rated it similarly, at 15. However, the nudity and references to drug use were enough to alarm the Americans and lead to a higher age classification, Restricted, in the USA.

Look up ratings details by agency.
