We're still thinking about that Ted Lasso season 3 finale (which may or may not be the end of the series), and all the heartwarming moments and questions it left us pondering. But, while we're not ready to say goodbye to Coach Lasso (Jason Sudeikis), it seems we aren't the only ones who crave more of Sudeikis. His 2013 comedy We’re the Millers was just uploaded to Netflix this past Thursday, and now, the film has jumped into the top spot on the streaming site's list of most-watched movies. It is currently sitting above recent hits like Missing and the Oscar-nominated To Leslie.

In We’re the Millers, Sudeikis is not playing the same fun-loving, pun-making character that he portrays in Ted Lasso. Rather, the 47-year-old star plays a weed dealer named David Clark, who gets robbed by a group of teenagers and must repay his supplier by transporting a stash of marijuana from Mexico to the United States.

However, David realizes that this job will be harder to pull off alone, so he recruits a local stripper (Jennifer Aniston), a runaway teen (Emma Roberts) and his quirky local neighbor (Will Poulter) to pose as his family, “the Millers.” Of course, as the family embarks on their pretend cross-country journey, they encounter many laughter-inducing obstacles along the way.

Along with this star-studded main cast, We’re the Millers features other notable names, including Ed Helms (The Office), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Kathryn Hahn (Bad Moms), Molly Quinn (Castle), Luis Guzmán (Wednesday) and more.

We’re the Millers was directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) with a screenplay by Bob Fisher (The Valet), Steve Faber (Wedding Crashers), Sean Anders (Hot Tub Time Machine) and John Morris (Horrible Bosses 2).

We can only rewatch Ted Lasso so many times, so we'll be fitting in a We’re the Millers viewing this week too.
