UNITED STATES - Contrary to popular opinion, Jennifer Aniston is a bona fide boxoffice magnet when it comes to comedies.

The US actress' movies - Horrible Bosses, Just Go With It, The Switch, The Bounty Hunter - turned out to be global hits, no matter how critics panned most of them.

She now teams up with US funny man Jason Sudeikis for We're The Millers, which opens here on Sept 5.

Everybody loves a good laugh, and with two of Hollywood's top comedians leading the way, what can go wrong?

Little, in fact.

Within three weeks of its US release, We're The Millers has amassed US$114 million (S$146.3 million), more than triple its production budget of US$37 million.

That's perhaps the sheer power of Aniston and Sudeikis.
