Why Him? offers up some worthwhile laughs and it has quite a promising cast, even if it does feel derivative due to its tired premise.

Well, it was fun to a degree because the cast was great and I really did laugh at some scenes. In the end I wasn't expecting more than a few smiles so no harm done. I loved the art work at his house though.

Good movie. Very funny parts. Loses steam towards the end.

Sorry rent paying movie. 2 great actors and a crappy toilet humor script. Not worth the $1.60 redbox fee or the time standing in front of it to rent it. Super sad attempt of a production

Not funny just crude with lots of swearing.

That was better than expected!
This is what I myself saying when the credit began to roll - and I had finished singing along to KISS.

I thought it was going to be another same-old-story we have seen Ashton Kutcher and Ben Stiller in before, however the wealth of Laird and the interesting characters in his world who made me laugh out loud was a good spin.
Offered a good laugh with friends.

while 'why him' tries to be funny and charming with a clear attempt to please both the young and old audiences the end result is far from it

Why him is your typical crude humor comedy, but for some reason I really enjoyed it. I got a lot of laughs and think it has more heart it in that the other throw away comedies. Bryan Cranston and James Franco have great chemistry together. I think you should give it a shot.

Formulaic, forgettable, and unfunny. I want another James Franco and Bryan Cranston movie, one with a better script!

I thought this movie was going to be so corny, but turned out to be a good comedy. It definitely had its corny moments, but plenty of laughs and plenty of well written comedy. Plus, I swear Tina Fey's sister is in this movie and doesn't know it. LOL

"Son-in-law" reverse & redux. Both have some good laughs.

Far too 'by the books' to be anything memorable.

Is it Hollywood gold - obviously not.
Did it actually make me laugh - surprisingly, yes, through out the film.
While it had its typical "vulgar" moments every "comedy" seems to have to have these days - they were lightly played and well balanced with actual good comedy and some heart-to-heart realism.

"Why Him?" Stupid comedy but script has too much metaphorical **** sucking. It gets annoying to hear.

Was ok, a little stuipid

This was pretty good! One of Franco's better movies of late, a great comedy. The chemistry between Cranston and Franco shines at the heart of the film. The laughter comes in bunches. Full of dick and fart jokes, it's your typical twenty-first century comedy. Definitely recommend!

There were plenty of dumb moments and the movie went on too long but there were some laugh out loud moments. It's worth a go on a movie channel.
