But in trying to take a bite out of crime and another out of fame, he's ended up with more than he can chew for his first time in the director's chair.

The writers of the very funny "Wedding Crashers," Bob Fisher and Steve Faber, came up with the idea and wrote the first drafts of "The Millers," about a small-time drug dealer who uses a fake family as cover for one major score. Sean Anders and John Morris, who crafted "Hot Tub Time Machine" - also funny, also raunchy - finished the script. What's mystifying is why anyone thought combining these two writing teams' sensibilities made sense.
