Why Him? finds Brian Cranston (Breaking Bad) as Ned, an overprotective, loving dad who adores his smart, sensible daughter (Zoey Deutch), who is studying at Stanford. But when he, his wife (Megan Mullally) and son (Grffin Gluck) go to visit her for the holidays, he discovers to his horror that she is dating Laird (James Franco), an obnoxious, awkward and downright odd "internet zillionaire".
Despite the obvious appeal of his child potentially marrying someone rich, it is clearly loathe at first site for Ned, despite all of Laird's increasingly bizarre attempts to curry favour with the man he is already considering his father-in-law.
Cranston going up against Franco certainly seems like it could be fun.
Why Him? is out in cinemas now.
