Why Him? REVIEWS

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 ...

  • Epic fail...

    March 22nd, 2017

    Honestly this movie scares me, the fact that it has a score higher than 6 makes me afraid that this is the future of comedies, targeted for the new generation. I was hoping to see a Superbad style movie but this one is just full of absurdity, completely unrealistic, everything feels forced and absurd, the dialogue is just ridiculous... I don't und...

  • Pleasantly surprised!

    March 30th, 2017

    It might be prudent never to judge a book by its cover, but often enough, the author would give you a good idea what you're about to invest your time in. Bryan Cranston and James Franco doing a comedy together was enough to give me the necessary shove to press "Play" on this one.. I like comedies but finding a good one lately has been a challenge....

  • 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!)....

  • The epitome of forced comedy

    March 14th, 2017

    Why Him? is another entry into the "why these actors have to lower themselves?" category of comedies. The same tired setup with the repetitive jokes that lacks wit and fun. It is mind boggingly ludicrous that Bryan Cranston couldn't get something out of this movie.. Good: Megan Mullally is clearly trying her best here in the thankless wife role. Z...

  • Funny once you get into it

    March 3rd, 2017

    Okay so this movie takes some time to get into. At first I cringed a lot at the humour (and the completely unnecessary moment of showing the pubes), but as half an hour passed I started to laugh more and more. The rest of the audience was kind of the same, at first they were silent and some awkward giggles, but over time the movie became hilarious...

  • How vile and disgusting can you get!

    January 18th, 2017

    This movie is an exercise in how revolting they can go. But stupid scatological humor, and a plethora of f-bombs is one thing; when disgusting explicit sexual descriptions come out of the mouth of children, well I think this descends into the category of child pornography. Everyone involved in this film should be ashamed.. I didn't expect this kin...

  • Boring

    January 18th, 2017

    Minimum of ten lines. That will be difficult. How do you lambaste a movie that was just so terrible that it makes you wonder why anyone would waste their money producing it. It also makes me wonder how and why James Franco is still involved in acting. He is without question, one of the worst actors of all time. And, don't get me started about Bria...
