Gavin Purtell 'Why Him?' is a Christmas-set 'Meet The Parents' (and is produced by Ben Stiller), from the director of 'Along Came Polly' and 'I Love You, Man', so you know what kind of humour to expect. The plot is just Stephanie (Deutch) trying to convince her parents, Ned (Cranston) & Barb (Mullally) to like her new boyfriend, Laird (Franco). It doesn't help that he's 10 years older (16 years older in real life!), a billionaire and has no filter!Franco plays his usual loveable doofus, Cranston is great as the straight-man with some moments of madness, but Deutch, Mullally, Cedric The Entertainer and Gluck are underutilised. Keegan-Michael Key does get plenty of chances to shine as Gustav, a German(?) "butler" who is also Laird's martial arts trainer/best friend. Kaley Cuoco also has a pretty funny cameo-type role. There's plenty of sight gags and prat-falls, and an amusing bit with a digital toilet that solves the plot at the end.There's good use of KISS - both "Rock & Roll All Nite" and the 2-3min cameo from Paul & Gene at the end! Franco pretty much steals every scene he's in, with his loveable charm and smile and goofy remarks. It's a fun film, but could be a little quicker and doesn't quite achieve greatness.
gingersnap0974 I was forced to watch this movie by my fiancé. I knew it would be bad because I check IMDb before ever investing my time in a movie. But wow it was horrible. It was way way over the top. Everything was so extreme, corny, cheesy and unrealistic. So far-fetched and everything was overdone.It was hard to sit through and I was glad when it was over.
