There's a billion comedies exactly like this. No matter how they write up the story, or what kind of craziness they inject, it all follows the same template. I guess they're kinda like saltines, they all have different dark spots, the granules of salt are in different places, but it's still a cracker. And I might like crackers sometimes, but they're not a meal. Crackers are usually better as a palate cleanser between other things and...what was I talking about?

Highly enjoyable and good-natured comedy is predictable to a fault (and sort of a MEET THE PARENTS in reverse), but galvanised by a surprisingly funny (and weirdly touching) performance from Franco, and his excellent chemistry with hapless straight-man Cranston. Thanks mostly to Cranston and Franco, the film's ultimately superficial and timeworn moral of tolerance and acceptance is quite sweetly rendered.

While it's funny at times and Franco and Cranston are mostly excellent, it's just too much or too little at different points.

I enjoyed this more than I probably should have. Was it ridiculous? Yes. Was it hilarious? Yes! This may not be the comedy for everyone. The level of humor spikes constantly throughout the film. It gets very crude and absurd but the thing is, it kept me laughing. I'm a Cranston mark and he plays his role well. Franco is ridiculous and somehow I felt they both worked well off of each other. It won me over. 4 STARS

I found this to be fairly entertaining. There are some problems with the humor and writing though. At times the humor is subtle but other times it's just crude. Francos ignorance felt a little forced to me as well. However I do enjoy Bryan Cranston and there was some fun to be had. It's well acted. In no way a great comedy but it's not bad.

The humor is mostly supposed to come from James Franco's absurd lack of filter in terms of language. Basically it's saying fuck in front of uncomfortable old people and a 15 year old. Despite this and the obvious story it still has a quality that defines it more by what it could have been than what it was.

While the jokes are certainly run of the mill, Why Him really excels at creating characters you care about and root for. Franco and Cranston play off each other marvelously and Deutch is what steals the movie for me. There were flashes of potential for this movie to be great, however it falls short to jokes that don't hit or just are more raunchy then they need to be. There were times were it felt the director tried balancing jokes and the deeper meaning this movie gives and did so mediocrely.

It held its own much better than I thought it would. Franco and Cranston gave the film the life it needed to be something absurd yet deeper than first thought. It was fun through out despite being one of the weirdest comedies in a long time.

Did not expect to like it this much. Or for it to be such a good movie. With actual depth. And damn great performances. And damn good casting. Probably my favorite James Franco role and performance. And it really pulls of the the combination of dry, yet crude satirical humor. It's kind of...realistically absurd. It's as much about getting old and letting go as it is about growing up and starting your own journey in today's world. And it's also really weird and funny. Though not nec. original.

It's a fun movie. There are some small moments of good comedy, but the script is pretty bland. They tend to recycle a lot of the jokes and there wasn't anything too memorable. That said, it was plenty of fun to watch, it just won't be the kind of movie you want to go back twice for.

Loved Cranston doing his LBJ voice a couple times. Nice to see him bowling as well cuz it brought me back to arguably the best episode of Malcolm in the Middle.
