“From the moment she’s born, a man’s daughter is the centre of his universe. You give her love. You give her encouragement. You watch her grow into a strong, confident woman. And then one day… you come face-to-face, with the ‘love of her life’.”


Why Him


This is the ever-relatable tale of ‘Why Him?’:

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). A rivalry develops, and Ned’s panic level goes through the roof when he finds himself lost in this glamorous high-tech world and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.


dunh. dunh. dunhhhhhhhhh

(note: there is good use of the ‘F’ word)


Here’s why we think this should be good:

This is a John Hamburg film (he also directed ‘I Love You, Man’, ‘Along Came Polly’, and ‘Zoolander’). There’s a comedic cast to bring it to life (Bryan Craston, James Franco, Megan Mulllally, Cedric the Entertainer and more)… not to mention the producers, Shawn Levy, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, and Dan Levine!
