Looking for a movie to watch with your grandma during the holidays? Well, we got the perfect film for you. It’s the classic scenario, what does a father do when his daughter falls for the wrong guy?
Bryan Cranston plays the loving (slightly strange) father of a successful and bright woman played by Zoey Deutch. When Zoey’s character brings her new boyfriend (James Franco) home for the holidays, Cranston is shocked to see how vulgar and douchey this guy is.
When you look at the cast, you think, “Wow! This movie is going to be amazing!” but then you watch the trailer and see just how generic it looks.
Maybe the folks behind ‘Why Him?’ are trying to keep the best jokes out of the trailers, but that seems extremely unlikely because that goes against everything Hollywood stands for.
It just looks like such a safe movie, and that’s not what you’re looking for when you hear that Bryan Cranston and James Franco are making an R-rated comedy together.
But hey, I’ll still give it a chance. Maybe it’ll surprise everyone. It’s scheduled to be released December 23, 2016.
