  • I can't remember the last time I cringed so often

    December 24th, 2016

    I usually (and quite easily) hand out 8, 9 or 10 stars to a film. In fact, the majority of movies I watch receive good-to-excellent scores from me. This one however, does not.. The jokes often feel exaggerated and forced, and are embarrassingly childish with far too much profanity. I can't remember the last time I cringed so often. Sure, there was...

  • Old Script, New Title

    December 21st, 2016

    Stephanie introduces her boyfriend Laird to her family, namely her overprotective father Ned(Cranston). Who is dismayed at his daughter as he tries to absorb the reality that Laird is a part of his life now. Stephanie is so blinded by love that she seems to overlook her boyfriends obnoxious behavior. There are some original jokes, Yet, this feels ...

  • Jonah and James: Won't get fooled again

    December 27th, 2016

    Jonah Hill, James Franco, and another: "Hey I've got only a trailer length's worth of funny content for a new flick that's another ATM for us! We'll stick in some (now formulaic) prolonged disturbing sexual content that differentiates us/the film as young and hip.". Really, if you saw the trailer you saw the best of this movie. Whoever made the tr...

  • Why him? Should be called 'Why Bother?'

    December 27th, 2016

    Brian Cranston is the traditional father who struggles to bond with his daughter's boyfriend, James Franco is the boyfriend, a Tech millionaire who wants to win him over in order to marry his daughter. There's frequent forced humour, with particularly lots of bathroom humour. This film drops the 'F' bomb frequently (too frequently for me anyway!)....

  • Why bother?

    December 26th, 2016

    Routine, by-the-numbers tale of a man, repelled by his college-aged daughter's boyfriend, attempting to show her what a loser he is. It turns out, however, the boyfriend is an internet multimillionaire, and an obnoxious, loud, profanity-laden one, at that. There is nothing even remotely likable about his character, so it is easy to understand why ...

  • Mayhew: a study in decadence.

    December 25th, 2016

    This movie has some funny scenes but is not a good movie. The reason: the principal character is so obnoxious that story comes off as jarring. Mayhew, played by James Franco, is affable and eccentric but is pushy, controlling, tasteless and above all stupid. The movie asks the audience to believe that he is a billionaire. That's a stretch. Fleming...

  • Pure drivel. Waste of time viewing it.

    December 30th, 2016

    Well, it was a Christmas-related film so we thought it might be a giggle. A potentially good cast too. Liked the dad figure in Breaking Bad. The mum figure (Megan Mulally) was great in Will & Grace as Karen. However, although it's an interesting premise, father trying to decide if the potential son-in-law is good enough for his beloved daughter, t...

  • Long, boring, stupid and predictable

    December 30th, 2016

    Terrible movie.. I would say even the worst one i have watched this Year! Long, boring, stupid and predictable!. Funny?!. I didn't find anything funny in it! Unbearable flat, shallow, idiotic American humor.. I can't believe i spent 1 hour and 51 min. of my life lobotomizing my brain with such a cliché!. Why this people in Hollywood continue maki...

  • It might just be me, but I liked it.

    December 26th, 2016

    This was on my year-end list as well. It was buried somewhere down the list.. like it was nearly hanging off of it. Actually, it was in a separate list of "Films I may or may not see in December if reviews are really bad". Why Him? actually did get awful reviews. But for some reason, I wanted to take a chance on it. I felt something was there. For...

  • If You Can Get Through The First 75%, You May Enjoy The Last 25%

    January 8th, 2017

    Be warned - if you weren't brought up with your own cell phone and a Twitter account, this movie will probably make you sick. I literally had to FORCE myself to watch it all the way through. It should be a wake-up call to how selfish, egotistical and banal society has become. In many cases, people don't bother to actually raise their children any ...
