I’m not a father, but if my daughter introduced me to her boyfriend and it turned out to be James Franco I’d not be happy, he’s a bit creepy in my books.
So I can imagine how Bryan Cranston’s character must feel when in he meets a hyper, ballbag version of Franco in the first trailer for John Hamburg’s Why Him?
Until yesterday I’d never heard of this movie, but I’m interested in seeing how Cranston will finally accept Franco as his son-in-law.
Why Him? Synopsis:
Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry-and Ned’s panic level-escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.
Why Him? hits screens Christmas Day.
