Why Him? (2016)
Critic Consensus: Solidly cast but overall misconceived, Why Him? offers the odd chuckle, but ultimately adds disappointingly little to its tired father-vs.-fiancé formula.

Critic Reviews for Why Him?
I'm not going to lie. I laughed - just not as frequently or as hard as I would have liked to.
Like "Meet the Parents," but littered with F-bombs, "Why Him?" is a holiday comedy that never quite figures itself out.
For this puerile farce, director John Hamburg recycles a tired premise -- a straitlaced father disapproves of his daughter's freewheeling boyfriend -- and then drowns it in moose urine (really).
Audience Reviews for Why Him?
Quite funny. Especially the earlier parts of the film.
With a good main cast I expected this to be much better, That's not to say it's a bad film as it's not but the story plods along never taking advantage of certain scenes to really get the laughs rolling, There's some funny moments but not really enough to be memorable but I do have so much respect for Bryan Cranston and James Franco so it's hard for me to hate this film.
Typical raunchy, showy and crude hollywood comedy film. There are some really funny moments but these cliche romantic comedies don't need all this money to have interesting characters. Franco is solid and really funny, one of the better films from him, away from the dire boring and not well made films he crams out like Nicolas Cage.
