Why Him? is a movie starring James Franco and Bryan Cranston. The movie was advertised as a comedy that follows Ned (Cranston) as he meets his daughter’s boyfriend, Laird (Franco), for the first time!
We saw this movie on Christmas day with my parents and sister. While I can see this movie causing problems in some families, this was the perfect movie for us. We are the perfect mix of generation X and millenials, so we saw both sides of this outrageously funny story. This is not the kind of movie you want to take your pure minded grandma to go see!
There were a few times we were laughing so hard, partly because of the joke, partly because my parents were sitting next to us. But none of the jokes were really memorable. Unfortunately, like most comedies today, the story line got lost a little bit and the emotional parts were mashed together inorganically, making the less ‘haha’ parts harder to get through.
Overall, this was exactly what we were expecting, a bad holiday comedy.
6/10 would watch again!
