Her striptease is why ppl are flocking to see her movie

We’re the Millers has now grossed almost $70 Million dollars in 11 days and is on track to cross the 100 Million dollar mark domestic. Congrats to Jennifer Aniston for another box office hit!

@Dd:

The film is extremely funny. Jen’s striptease albeit very enticing, is a very small part of the film.

Paranoia Flopped hard…haha poor Liam and Amber.

these are only estimates the real weekend box office totals aren’t released until tomorrow afternoon Monday August 19th. take into consideration that a movie ticket now costs on average over 8 dollars

Horrible movie, a poor attempt to rewrite history, filled with tons of inaccuracies. Also, gotta love the timing of Oprah’s bullsh!t rac!sm claim (publicity-stunt) right before her movie comes out. NEVER recommend this clearly fictitious film…

I really want to see Jobs, but this movie sounds good also. The discount movie house I go to has Senior Discount Day for $4 and if you are not a senior, it is $5 before Noon.

The movie is based on the real life experiences of this particular butler in the White House who serve under 8 different presidents.

This movie was extremely historically inaccurate and extremely poorly played to up the “race card” extortionist race-hate measures being deployed upon America and her allies by the current White House occupancy and the media support attempt factor of Oprah Winfrey.
