  • I can't remember the last time I cringed so often

    December 24th, 2016

    I usually (and quite easily) hand out 8, 9 or 10 stars to a film. In fact, the majority of movies I watch receive good-to-excellent scores from me. This one however, does not.. The jokes often feel exaggerated and forced, and are embarrassingly childish with far too much profanity. I can't remember the last time I cringed so often. Sure, there was...

  • Fantastic Franco.

    October 1st, 2017

    Why him? I tell you why, because I can't think of any other actor who can transform this this cinematic excrement into a gourmet dish. There is a matteroffactness in his character that lives somewhere between Rupert Pumpkin and Howard Hughes, the thing is that the life James Franco gives to his character is absolutely real. The film could have tur...

  • Why this?

    October 1st, 2017

    Sometimes, when watching a movie billed as a comedy, and finding myself over an hour into it without cracking a smile, I ask myself, "Why? Why did I waste these precious moments of my life on such crap?" This was my exact sentiment during this film. Contrived, sophomoric and actually quite boring. If you want to experience those feelings, by all m...

  • The epitome of forced comedy

    March 14th, 2017

    Why Him? is another entry into the "why these actors have to lower themselves?" category of comedies. The same tired setup with the repetitive jokes that lacks wit and fun. It is mind boggingly ludicrous that Bryan Cranston couldn't get something out of this movie.. Good: Megan Mullally is clearly trying her best here in the thankless wife role. Z...

  • Old Script, New Title

    December 21st, 2016

    Stephanie introduces her boyfriend Laird to her family, namely her overprotective father Ned(Cranston). Who is dismayed at his daughter as he tries to absorb the reality that Laird is a part of his life now. Stephanie is so blinded by love that she seems to overlook her boyfriends obnoxious behavior. There are some original jokes, Yet, this feels ...

  • Epic fail...

    March 22nd, 2017

    Honestly this movie scares me, the fact that it has a score higher than 6 makes me afraid that this is the future of comedies, targeted for the new generation. I was hoping to see a Superbad style movie but this one is just full of absurdity, completely unrealistic, everything feels forced and absurd, the dialogue is just ridiculous... I don't und...

  • Why him? Should be called 'Why Bother?'

    December 27th, 2016

    Brian Cranston is the traditional father who struggles to bond with his daughter's boyfriend, James Franco is the boyfriend, a Tech millionaire who wants to win him over in order to marry his daughter. There's frequent forced humour, with particularly lots of bathroom humour. This film drops the 'F' bomb frequently (too frequently for me anyway!)....

  • It might just be me, but I liked it.

    December 26th, 2016

    This was on my year-end list as well. It was buried somewhere down the list.. like it was nearly hanging off of it. Actually, it was in a separate list of "Films I may or may not see in December if reviews are really bad". Why Him? actually did get awful reviews. But for some reason, I wanted to take a chance on it. I felt something was there. For...

  • Unspeakable

    September 30th, 2017

    Impossible to fully explain what a terrible waste of talent this film is. I cannot offer one word of praise for this stinker. First it is pathetically predictable, all the jokes are terrible, and the people responsible for the script should be deeply and irrevocably ashamed of themselves. Don't waste your time. Take a nap. Read a book, even the ph...

  • I Hated This Movie

    April 21st, 2017

    Every Christmas, my sisters have this new tradition where they take my mom and I and go see a movie. Last year, we saw Daddy's Home. This year, we saw Why Him? Oh boy.... Firstly, when I saw the trailer for this movie, I thought it looked stupid, unfunny, and really annoying. But I choose not to judge a book by it's cover, so I went and saw it. Be...
