It’s Bryan Cranston vs. James Franco in the red band trailer for ‘Why Him?’


If you’re a parent, the one thing that you dread is the day that you meet the love of your child’s life. Understandably, many things could run through your mind on that day. Is this person the right one for her/him? Is this person able to take care of my child? When it comes to Why Him? then the question posed is: Why in the hell is my daughter dating this utter tool? Check out the trailer and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.

Why Him? looks to be an updated version of the whole “meet the parents” motif. The “evil” future son-in-law is an Internet billionaire this time around. The trailer doesn’t seem to change the predictable storyline much, but this is James Franco vs. Bryan Cranston. The potential for comedy is through the roof with that duo in the movie.

Along with the trailer, Fox has released the first poster for the film as well! Check it out!

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 theaters on Christmas Day.
