Calvin, un expert-comptable qui s’ennuie dans son emploi, renoue avec Bob Stone, une connaissance du temps de l’école secondaire qu’il n’avait pas revue depuis plus de 20 ans. Timide et potelé, à l’époque, Bob a maintenant un aspect physique impressionnant et semble bien dans sa peau. Mais ce que Calvin ignore c’est que cet homme est un agent de la CIA pourchassé par ses collègues pour le meurtre de son coéquipier et le vol de documents secrets. Rapidement impliqué dans l’aventure, le comptable devient, bien malgré lui, le nouveau partenaire du fugitif pour traquer un criminel en possession d’informations militaires stratégiques.

Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson), l'ancien bouc émissaire du lycée devenu agent d'élite à la CIA, refait surface dans la vie de Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) à l'occasion de la réunion des anciens de leur promo. Se vantant d'être sur une affaire top secret, il recrute Calvin, autrefois le gars le plus populaire du lycée, aujourd'hui comptable désabusé. Avant même que notre col blanc ne réalise ce dans quoi il s'est embarqué, il est trop tard pour faire marche arrière. Le voilà ainsi propulsé sans autre cérémonie par son nouveau « meilleur ami » dans le monde du contre-espionnage où, sous le feu croisé des balles et des trahisons, les statistiques de leur survie deviennent bien difficile à chiffrer, même pour un comptable.

A low-level marijuana dealer named David Clark (Jason Sudeikis) who lives in Denver is robbed of his money and stash, some of which he owes to his wealthy drug lord supplier Brad Gurdlinger (Ed Helms). After David is brought to him, Gurdlinger forces David to smuggle marijuana from Mexico as a solution to clear his debt. Realizing that one man attempting to get through customs is too suspicious, he hires a middle-aged stripper neighbor stage-named Rose (Jennifer Aniston), a runaway and petty thief named Casey (Emma Roberts), and his 18-year-old neighbor Kenny (Will Poulter), to pose as a bogus family called the "Millers". When the Millers reach the compound, they find out that the amount of marijuana they were picking up is not "a smidge" as Gurdlinger had informed them, but actually two tons. Because of the extra load of the marijuana on the RV, one of the radiator hoses breaks while going up a steep incline. A family they had encountered at the border, the Fitzgeralds, consisting of Don (Nick Offerman), Edith (Kathryn Hahn), and Melissa (Molly Quinn), catch up to them and tow the Millers' RV to a repair shop. On the trip to the shop, David learns that Don Fitzgerald is a DEA agent after finding his badge and gun in the glove compartment.

The following Monday, pressed by Rhiannon, Olive lies about losing her virginity to a college guy.

Alors que le vétéran de l'armée américaine Will Sawyer était le chef du commando de libération d'otages du FBI, une opération a mal tourné, ce qui lui a coûté sa jambe gauche. 10 ans plus tard, marié à la chirurgienne militaire Sarah et père de Georgia et Henry, il est désormais à la tête de sa petite entreprise de sécurité dans les gratte-ciels. Will et sa famille se rendent à Hong Kong pour décrocher un contrat auprès de Zhao Ming Zhi, le propriétaire chinois de la plus haute tour du monde. Lorsque Will est accusé à tort d'avoir déclenché un incendie au 96ème étage du vertigineux immeuble, celui qui est considéré comme un fugitif et un criminel par les autorités locales n'a que quelques heures pour prouver son innocence, trouver les vrais coupables, rétablir sa réputation, mais surtout sauver sa famille piégée dans le gratte-ciel en flammes…
