The problem of expectant son-in-law’s criteria is no longer a new topic raised in a film. But the movie Why Him? This provides another touch that is quite interesting in lifting the ideal prospective son-in-law.
Movies Why Him? This actually has been released at the end of 2016 and could be the choice of family spectacle in the final holiday and new year 2017. But this movie certainly has a limit on the age of the audience, given the existence of some scenes and dirty dialogue that can be categorized “extreme” (obscene) for children .
Movies Why Him? It’s about how a father who initially objected to his beloved daughter’s boyfriend. Ned (Bryan Cranston), is the CEO of a struggling Michigan-based printing company.
Ned is very close to his daughter, Stephanie (Zoey Deutch). When Ned tries to get a deal to earn the much-needed income, Stephanie invites her family – Ned, her mother, Barb (Megan Mullally) and her younger brother, Scott (Griffin Gluck) – to celebrate Christmas with her in California so they can spend the holidays together and meet her boyfriend, the famous video game designer Laird Mayhew (James Franco).
Considerably, Ned finally agreed to California. He flew with the intention of wanting to know more about Stephanie and Laird’s love life before things got more serious.
While Stephanie keeps trying to persuade her father by convincing her that Laird is the right man for her. Because she loves him and she knows very well that Laird has another side to be proud of. It was apparently shown by Laird to Ned and her family.
Although Laird is a bit ‘melting’ to the Flemings, he admits to really caring about their daughter and wants to marry on Christmas Day. However, he will not do it without Ned’s blessing first.
As a result, with his attitude is still somewhat spoiled, he tried to win the heart of Ned in order to marry Stephanie. Well, the attitude of Laird and Ned’s family during Laird’s house is what invites a lot of laughter later on.
Movies Why Him? This is the latest comedy from writer / director John Hamburg, who has also been a writer of the movie Meet the Parents. The film is one of his efforts to implement a spectacle that presents some adult-oriented laughter in filling the holiday season.
The acting action of the main actors is also considered quite entertaining, especially Bryan Cranston and James Franco in the role of Ned and Laird characters. They are able to channel the comedic side of the film, where Bryan plays a loving, yet overprotective father, while actor James Franco fascinates in his role as a free-flowing and honest (sometimes too honest) man who is desperate to please Nominee-in-law, Ned.
