If you are looking for a different kind of movie this holiday season, check out Why Him?
James Franco plays a young millionaire, Laird Mayhew, who tries to win over his girlfriend’s father, Ned Fleming, played by Bryan Cranston. This comedy is hilarious. Of course, most of what Franco is in is pretty funny. This one takes the cake for the best Christmas comedy of this year. That is saying a lot from my previous post about Office Christmas Party. Costarring with these comedy geniuses as Keegan Michael Key and Megan Mullally, who you may have seen in Will & Grace or appearances in Parks and Recreation alongside her husband, Nick Offerman.
Why Him? has the comedy that Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill normally include themselves in, but this film has Jonah Hill has one of the writers. I can see that because of the type of comedy this film shows.
If you frequent the YouTubers that have made a name for themselves, be on the look out for Toby Turner in a scene in the film. Got to be observant on that one!
Anyway, I was very impressed with the film. You know how there are films where the only funny parts are what is shown in the movie trailers? Well, this is not the case. Another well-done comedy to end out 2016 well.
