From the minute she’s born his daughter is the centre of his universe, a father will do anything for his little girl. In Red Band UK Trailer for Why Him? The M*therF*&Ck!ng Flemming are in the house! It’s every daddy’s worst nightmare when he comes face to face with the young man wants to be their little girl’s suitor. He maybe socially awkward and rich just don’t tell him his daughter opens like a flower!
We loved him in Breaking Bad and showed his versatility in many other ways, but Bryan Cranston heads back to the genre that helped launch him comedy. Now making us laugh than scare the living daylights out of us, as he becomes a dad who hates his daughter boyfriend. Is this not a father’s duty to hate those potential suitors?!
In 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). 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.
It may not be an highly original concept but Bryan Cranston even James Franco are solid at putting bums on seats at the cinema. Cranston as a frustrated like father is something the actor is great at after years as the dad in Malcolm In The Middle, but a chance to see Franco as a more upbeat be it mad cap character. This won’t win awards for originality but has plenty going for it in comedy zone.
Why Him? is set for a 6th January 2017, though that date is not confirmed possibly December. The film also stars Zoey Deutch,Megan Mullally, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, Casey Wilson, and Adam DeVine,
